Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Slight power surges

I have a 2001 ford expidition. We love this truck but we have one small problem. When its really cold out and we are running front and back heaters ther is slight power surges. for example when all the heats are on the headlights and dash lights flicker slightly right in sinq with the motor running. once i shut the heats or air off the rpms pick up slightly back to normal and the lights remain steady. Does it seem like i have a underpowered battery or alternator.?

You might want to chk. your battery connections make sure there clean and tight, and any other ground straps you can find, you also might want to have your altinator chk. too. Have you notice any winning noise comming from altinator when you run alot of electrial, it could have a diod in alt. going bad or the regulator in alt. sticking or going bad or bearing going bad. chk. all bat. connections if it still does it after you do that have alt. checked.

My 1998 Ford Expidition heater starts our hot then gradually gets cold, what's wrong with it?


If your temp gauge goes up, then it is a head gasket problem, or intake gasket leak that makes it loose pressure.

I have a 2001 Ford van wind star. The heater system in the front do not work, but the back does. Why does the front will not work


there is a recall for plastic gear which fails, thus causing cold air up front, as the blend valve(door) does not shut propperly, or your heater core is plugged?

What parts do I need to tune up a 2001 ford expidition 5.4 4x4


If your 5.4 is idling or running rough a common problem is a vacuum hose on the back top passengers side of the engine, It is really more of an elbow hose consisting of two different sizes.
To do a basic tune up all that is required are plugs, wires, pcv valve and a can of SeaFoam injector cleaner in a full tank of gas.

MY AIR CONDITIONIER ON 97 FORD EXPIDITION BLOWS HOT AIR IN THE FRONT, YOU CAN TURN THE AIR OFF AND THEN BACK ON AND IT WILL WORK SOME TIMES FOR A LITTLE WHILE. SOME TIME IT WORKS OK FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS....


The hot and cold air in the front is controlled by an actuator in the dash. The temp controller is working as designed because the back is working fine. You need to take to local shop to have the vent actuator or heater control box inside changed out. Then the tempaturer controller has to be reset. Good luck

Ford taurus Wagon 2001 heater problem


Check your coolant level. If the antifreeze is low the water pump may not be able to pump enough of the coolant through your heater core. When the car runs faster it is able to pump more of the warm antifreeze to the heater core.

You need to change the thermostat, it must be stuck open and the computer thinks the engine is always cold, hence the fast idle and smoke.
