SOURCE: 2003 ford expedition , missing while accelerating

most likely cause is a defective ignition coil, there is one for each cylinder (coil over plug), the dealer will have to test it to determine which of the eight coils is the source of the miss. the coils are about $60 each

SOURCE: over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.

You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.

Misfire when accelerating


Year, make and model of your vehicle would help. If you can check for codes in the engine control module, it would also help in better diagnosing your possible issue and resolve.

What have you done so far as to diagnosis ? Have you checked for any vacuum leaks ? Have you checked if your coils/plugs are in good condition ? Adding as much detail information is best.
