Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Alternator I have a 2001 Ford Expedition, I am a 32 yr old female and have no clue how to put the new one in. I would love to learn but am afraid to mess it up by doing so. Can you recommend any websites that will give clear directions with diagrams to point men in the right place?

Not getting enough fuel to the engine in a ford expedition

I assume the battery is "good" because it has been properly tested? I hope so. It sounds like a failed alternator to me. Faulty batteries are the #1 cause of alternator failures followed by the alternator bearings and/or brushes being just plain worn out.

If you believe the battery is good because you recently replaced it, a failing alternator might be what killed your other battery.

Bad batteries kill alternators, bad alternators kill batteries. These couples either love each other or hate each other...there is no such thing as simply getting along....

I replace #6 coil on 2001 expedition and a couple of days it started misfiring again.

The answer to that, is that what ever coil you
replaced was the wrong one.

You relied on the PO300 codes too much

Take that new coil out,put the old one back
and start walking the new coil ,until you find the
bad one.

There are other ways of testing but not at home
in the driveway

Today, my batter light came on, on my 2001 Ford Expedition truck. do you know what could have caused this problem? Alternator, maybe a new charging system...

The battery light means that the charging system is not working, and the most likely suspect is the alternator. Most auto parts stores will check your alternator for free, and let you know if it is bad or good.
