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

Going down the highway at 55-60 mph I just barely tap the gas and the vehicle jumps, I press the gas hard and it stops, leave off the gas check engine light blinks and jumping continues.


A blinking light usually means exhaust system probably catalic converter. You most likely have a small blockage in it which means exhaust can't get out correctly. Have vehicle scanned at autozone or similar.

2004 Ford expedition check engine soon light is flashing and car shakes hard when stepping on the accelerator


Your car is misfiring. You should not drive the vehicle while it is misfiring. If you want to DIY it you can start with you ignition system. Make sure all spark plugs, plug wires, and ignition coils are secure and in good condition.

Stalled while driving


Sounds like the engine is starving for fuel. You might try changing the fuel filter. It also cold be water in your fuel tank. Try putting some dry gas in the tank.

I have 2000 ford expedition and last few weeks its been making a whistling noise when accelerate, then past few days it's been running rough, idel low and shakes a bit then today check engine ligh


You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

When i press on gas peddle the truck shakes


Is the check engine light on? Could be that the engine is misfiring, or broken motor mount causing the truck to shake when you press the gas pedal.

I have a 2000 ford expedition. Out of the blue it started sputtering and shaking when I accelerate. Vehicle has144,000 miles.


You should be showing the check engine light--take the car to Autozone or other such business and get a free computer scan (they will be happy to sell you any needed parts). The scan should pinpoint any fuel or ignition problems. Good luck!
