Question about 2004 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Yesterday my 2004 Ford Expedition just shut down and died while driving down the road, with no prior warning. A few minutes later it started again. I took it to a mechanic, who hooked it to asome sort of supercomputer and diagnosed the problem as the fuel pump and fixed it. This evening, when I start it, it rumbles loudly and then backfires once. It's never sounded bad at all. What now?

Timing probably jumped. This will throw off everything to include fuel pump. No notice prior to mechanical failure. It just happens.

    It appears to do this at starting, after engine is already warm, when restarting after being driven. Also a sulphur/rotten egg smell after the backfire

SOURCE: ford festiva just dies while going down the road

i had many problems with what i thought was my starter/ignition and replaced my alternator and battery. tho they were helpful, ultimately the problem was a small fusible link that had needed to be replaced, as it was over heating and when it would it would stop whatever electrical signal was imperitive to the car actually running. if i was driving and the wire over heated, it would stop running right on the road. i just used some 12 AWG stranded wire and it stopped stalling.i discovered it by accident when i touched the wire and noticed it was excessively hot and worn down. it was located in the upper right hand corner under the hood, where there are 3 wires, brown and black.

SOURCE: truck stalls while driving, will start again if wait ten minutes

Ok, this sounds like a weak fuel pump and clogged filter. if possible, you will need to change these two vital devices. I would also replace the air filter as well.

Inspect the injection system for faults as well. make sure all injectors are firing properly and on time. replace any injector that isn't functioning correctly.

Replace the fuel pump relay. And if your truck has dual tanks there's three fuel pumps, one in each tank and another secondary fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition won't start

start with the fuel pump as it is the easiest. turn the key on as tho you were going to start it so the dash trouble lights come on. leave it like that and go to the rear of the vehicle and listen for a buzzing or whirring noise. sometimes taking the gas cap off and listening helps

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Why did the motor die while I was driving down the road when I turned on the a/c and fan?


If the engine overheated then the antifreeze may be getting into the engine, indicating a cracked head or block. check for water in oil via dipstick. .
