You mean when you turn OFF the Over Drive the problem goes away?

What you are actually doing is this, the TCC Solenoid is being turned off and the shuttering stops, that means your TCC has an Issue and is kicking on and off, on and off, on and off... There is 2 EASY ways to fix this. First you are taking a shot in the dark, second will fix it for the long run.
(a) Service your Transmission, new Filter and New Fluid. this will take care of the problem 50% of the time
(b) Service your Transmission with a new Filter and New Fluid and while you have the Pan OFF... REPLACE THE TCC Solenoid (One 10mm Bold holds it in place) and then finish the service,. This will take care of the problem 99% of the time.

I just did this to my 2002 Expedition and fixed the problem. Solenoid is available on Ebay for less than $40. you have to know how many BOLTS hold your Transmission Pan on. But it will fix your issue

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition wont start

On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

SOURCE: how to replace the light bulb on exterior mirror 2003 ford expedition

The one with the turnsignal intergrated into it?

If so.....

Push the Mirror FORWARD, up close to the pivot poit there is a small torx head screw - unscrew that.
At the tapered end carefully pull/pry down. That end has a small metal spring clip that holds it up, be careful with it, if it snaps, you can NOT by a new one...

SOURCE: 1997 ford exibition xlt my interior light and running board lights wont go off along wiith the door ajar light on dash board. please help

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

SOURCE: Check engine light intermittently flashing, car jerking.

Could be fuel or electrical related. Since you may not know the history, this may take a while.
Any amount of smoke from exhaust? White, Blue, Black?
Start with most obvious and inexpensive:
1. Fuel filer clogged (replace fuel filter).
2. Could be the ECM (Electronic Control Module). It controls the ignition spark timing.
A few other things... consider other expert solutions...

Disable anti theft system


I recently had a ford truck that did the same thing but did start when it felt like but then would not shut off. Turned out that the dash pannel had a few bad parts on it so we took the bad parts off the circuit board and radio shack had what we needed for $2 and we re soldered the new part to the board and all is working great now. Maybe this is something to check out.

98 FORD EXPEDITION ACCELERATION ISSUES


Do you have a check engine light blinking when this problem occurs? I assume you do because if it is missing and sputtering like you say the engine control computer would detect that and turn on the check engine light. Next step is to have the systems fault codes read through the diagnostic port under the dash in front of the driver, Autozone and others does this test for free.

Fule pump and filter have been changed teres are good and spark plugs are good to why does it buck and sometimes shut off


I had the same issue on my 03 Expedition. Jerks randomly but gets worst and extreme misfires/stalls/shuts down. Then restart and its fine. These bucks more likely are random misfires (Chk engine light may/not come on) associated with the ignition coil/s failing. These coils have a average life expectancy of 79,000 miles or 5yrs. I replaced all 8 COPs (coil over plug) @ 48,000 miles just to be safe with new accel coils. The coil models for engines 4.6/5.4 V8s are DG508. Hopefully this helps!

Good day
please disregard my last post. The only thing that came up was " the driver side catalytic converter on my 2003 ford expedition" so I was trying to fine out what you were asking, then I came across this full one.
