SOURCE: 2001 ford expedition spark plug location

That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

SOURCE: How do you change upper and lower ball joints on 2001 Ford Expedition?

i am not going to lie to you on this. if you do not have a very good mechanical back ground you should not attemp this procedure your self because it could result in serious injury. it should be brought to a shop because they do have the right tools to do this. alot of the time ball joints are pressed in under extream amounts of pressure

My 1997 Ford Expedition sometimes gets locked in park. the gears lock I can not get it out of park sometimes when it's running. Help !! My nephew says it's a sensor problem, and someone else...

Your vehicle has what's called a brake shift interlock which simply means you can't get it out of gear unless the brakes is pushed in. It is a safety feacture and it's a switch not a sensor. that is most likely going bad. There is a way you can bypass it when you are unable to get it into gear until you can get the switch replaced or whatever the problem is (guessing it's the switch though). Below is a picture to help you with this bypass procedure and unless you have a great memory I would print this out and keep it in the vehicle with you for when the problem does happen. here is the procedure: with the brake pedal depressed turn the key to the off position (3). Now apply the parking brake. Next turn the key to the lock position (2) and then remove the key. Now reinsert the key and turn it to the off position (3). At this point you should be able to put the vehicle in neutral and start the vehicle then. from nuetral you will be able to shift in all gears. I hope this helps and good luck.

2002 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park

replace the neutral safety switch or also try rocking the vehicle forward and back and then trying the shifter again.if it is parked tight against a curb and had rolled forward just a little bit and came to rest with the vehicles weight against one tire this will cause a bind and won't let it out of park this is especially true of 4x4 vehicles as the mileages get hire I hope this helps and good luck

1998 Ford Expedition air struts keep deflating.

You can check it for a leak by getting into vehicle and close the door.Turn ignition switch to on position and shift the gear shifter to neutral.You will hear the compressor turn on.Once compressor turns on put back into park,leave ignition on and exit vehicle.Compressor will turn off when you open door but will turn back on after you close it. Now listen at each corner to see if you can hear where your leak is.

The problem was not a problem at all, apparently it was the fact that when my vehicle was parked in the driveway which is on a bit of a slope. That caused the fuel to shift in the tank causing my problem. When I backed the vehicle out of the driveway and got on level ground the problem corrected itself and everything was fine. This is the only time I have ever had this problem since I've gotten the car. Also another indication I did'nt catch initially was that the low fuel light came on when I tried to start the vehicle earlier.
