Question about Cars & Trucks
Not your trans. A flashing check engine light means stop immediately sever problem. From your symptoms I think it is a bad ignition coil. Often a failing ignition coil works when idle but fails under load. A failing coil dumps raw gasoline into the catalytic converter resulting in extreme heat and cat failure.

www.edmonds.com for owner manuals online I also have a 2000 expedition and it is normally one of the coil packs is out if you have an autozone near you they will put it on the tester for free and that way you will know what is wrong and if it is the coil pack if you are standing in front of the truck looking at the engine this is how the cylinder location is on the passanger side back to the back of the engine is one thru four and on driverside is five thru eight so when they tell you which coil pack is bad you will know which one to replace and you can get just the boot and a new spring and replace that for around $6 to $8 then replacing the whole thing for around $65. try www.autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
