Have the integrity of the system checked. The big autoparts stores like Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan your vehicle for FREE. There is a good chance that a defect Code will tell you what is going on.

I have 2006 expedition will not start simble engine shows up on screen

engine symbol ? That's check engine light , OBD 2 - on board diagnostic's 2nd edition ! Has to do with EPA emission standards ! Engine symbol will be on till vehicle starts and run . Now then when you try starting the vehicle is there a little red light in the center top of the insturment panel flashing really fast ? If so that is for the anti-theft system , when there is a problem with the theft system the computers on the vehicle will not let the engine crank .

Enginelight stays on no problems

It's not there to tell you it's running bad , that should be fairly obvious . It's there as part of OBD 2 to tell you your vehicle is polluting 1.5 times more then allowed by the EPA . You probably have a evaporative emission system problem ! The EVAP system as it is called traps an contains fuel vapors in a charcoal canister an then when the engine computer by it's programming will suck the vapors into the engine . If there is a leak in the system the computer knows an sets codes . EVAP Evaporative Emission Control System

Emissions warning light

no year, car, or model. stated?
nor engine option, , (strike 3)
and makes any answesr impossible
and there is no Emissions light, you named it wrong.
my wild guess is its the Check engine light or CEL or MIL

if the CEL glows, get car scanned.
on cars with automatic transmissions, if it fails the same lamp glows.
cleaning it , is no trivial task.

2009 ford explorer wrench appears and starts running rough,

The Wrench Symbol is the Powertrain malfunction indicator: When this symbol comes on it means that the powertrain control module (PCM for short) has detected a problem in the powertrain (engine, transmission AWD), in you case it seems to be the engine that has problem. The number of problems that turns this light on is not cut and dry, it can be any number of things that have malfunctioned. What must be done now is to the the system scanned for fault codes, a fault code or codes is stored for the problem when this light came on or in your case comes on. It is likely this problem is covered under the emission system warranty if you have less than 70,000 miles on the truck.

Malfunction symbol appearing

Does it look like an engine? It means you have a problem with the engine. Those vans don't have a low coolant sensor.

ECT stands for engine coolant temperature. So I would start by making sure that your engine coolant system is not leaking and is full of coolant.If you want to tackle the job yourself you could purchase Haynes techbook # 10206 OBD -2 and electronic engine management systems or check your local library they may have a copy and they have troubleshooting steps you can do with a scan tool or multimeter. Good luck and hopefully this helps you a little.
