Question about 1998 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My expedition hessitate or feels like the tranny is not engaging between 40-60 mph. This only happen when the vehicle is warm and when you are trying to speed up. I'm thinking its the tranny going bad but it is a 99 and it is not worth changing out the tranny. Is this a common problem with the 99 expedition? Please help.

Sound like the converter is not locking up when it is supposed to. The converter is locked by the computer under full throttle and allowed to spin somewhat freely when not under a load. if you have the electronically controlled overdrive the unit should come out of overdrive to let the car accelerate. Most problems now days are in the computer controls of the transmission.

It should be on the back of the transmission near where the driveshaft goes in. Buy a new one, jack up your truck and look for the old one on the back of the transmission

SOURCE: Vehicle won't go over 25 mph. help!!

Hi

If you have engine management lights showing on your dash your car has gone into limp (or safety mode) and this explains your problem. In limp mode the engine is locked down as a safety measure to get you home and will not operate normally.

If this is the case the car will have to go to be scanned for error codes to identify the exact cause of the fault causing the limp mode condition.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: My 2002 Ford Ranger Edge V-6 is misfiring.

havent a clue here ,one cylinder now another missing ,only one thing comes to mind here and thats the coil pack ,check the voltage across the battery with engine running at 1500rpm and if its higher than 15.5 volts of their abouts then the alternator regulator is playing up and this would cause problems with the coil pack or the ECU ,also the radio could blow and lots of bulbs.Other that this i would need to get my greasy hands on it and give the magic hammer treatment

SOURCE: no heat in 99 ford windstar

Check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. There is not sufficient coolant to flow through the heater core at idle. At 60mph the water pump is spinning quickly, managing to get some coolant through the heater core, so you get heat until the rpm's drop at idle. If it is due to low level, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again, as you may have a leak.

1997 ford expedition wont engage in foward or backward


That happened to my old truck, an 04 dodge, and I said to myself " chancery, old chap, this must mean a new transmission" , I was mistaken. The solenoid pack in the tranny was bad. I had that replaced for a fraction of the cost of a new tranny and never once had another transmission problem.

Transmission seems to slip slightly when transitioning into overdrive. Feels like a 'fish bite'. No 'service engine light' on, no misfire of any cylinders, no codes found. All other gears work smoothly...


I am surprised the AAMCO techs have no ideas about this. This "slipping" could be caused by the overdrive system having a mechanical problem (e.g. sticking solenoid, leaking seal) when trying to engage or disengage.
The overdrive solenoid locks the torque converter when activated, and releases when deactivated, both starting to happen when the vehicle is above about 40 mph and depending on what the vehicle is doing at the time (accelerating, decelerating or coasting). When you depress the accelerator and the solenoid is engaged at close to this speed, it should immediately release, and then re-engage when you stop accelerating, and you should immediately feel a light "bump" each time, not a "fish bite".

Tranny shudder low speed 35-45 mph


The shifting sequence releases one clutch as it engages the other, so it may be one or the other out of timing, so there is a partial engagement or disengagement. Does the tranny oil, on the dipstick smell burned, or feel significantly different than fresh fluid? How many miles on the fluid? What model 95 Dodge? Has the tranny been rebuilt some time in the near past? (I ask that because, years ago I had a BMW tranny rebuilt by a very good shop ans noted on the work order that it had to be built and filled only with type F fluid. When I picked up and road tested the car, the tranny made an groaning noise on the up-shift. I took the dar back to the shop and asked what fluid it was filled with. They said Dexron II. I pointed out the work order and my telling them to only use type F, . They changed the fluid and refilled with type F, which was a waste because the clutch plates were contaminated with Dexron, so they decided to rebuild the trans mission,l They did, and filled it with type F and it was just as bad, so they claimed there was probably a problem in the valve body. I asked them what fluid they soaked the new plates in before assembly, It was Dexron, so they rebuilt it again using tyoe F for the pre soak of plates and bands, The tranny worked perfectly.
For a Chrysler product, I would only use Mopar brand fluid, even if the manual said there was an acceptable substitute. This is also true for the brake fluid and coolant, as the cost of a mistake can be huge. Remember, whoever changes the fluid is married to any problems that show up. I owned a six bay repair shop with a full machine shop for ten years before retiring. We did not do transmissions, it was legally safer to have them done by a reputable transmission shop or the dealer, bringing them the vehicle.

Tranny stuck in 1st gear until it warms


It is usually the electronics of the transmission. If you don't have any other symptoms, you may be alright. If you are getting slipping in between shifts, delayed engagement when put in reverse or drive, these are signs that the internals are going bad.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.


You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.
