When a cylinder misfires, it will cause the check engine light to come on. Probaby needs a good tune up or at least check the code, and if it's a misfire code, tune it up. Hope this is helpful. PHil

I don't know where you live, but some auto part stores can put a code scanner on it to find out why the light is on. I autozone does.

you have a misfire or a failing injector, both can make the light flash, you can get the car tested free at autozone or advance auto parts.

The engine hesition sometime 04 expedition 5.4


Most likely you have a bad COP (Coil On Plug) .
Maybe more than one. Very common ford problem for last 12 years.
If you get a MIL Light on the dash (the wrench),check for a PO300 Code.
A PO304 would be coil #4,PO306 #6 Etc.
Cyl 1 thru 4 on pass side
Cyl 5 thru 8 on driver side,front to back

Also hills cause a hi engine vacuum and thus a possible EGR Valve going bad. You can unplug the vacuum lines and plug, to diagnose that issue.

Also leave the EGR disconnected if your working on coil issues. Just note the MIL light will stay on all the time,and remember to check your 300 codes if you feel a hesitaton or miss.
