Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

On my last fill up i pumped 33 gallons, when previous fill ups were less than 26 gallons. I have a 1999 expedition Eddie Bauer. I thought I had a 26gal tank, since with the warning light on and saying 10 miles to empty, on digital gauge, has only taken 25.3 or so. Even if it is a 30 gal tank, how could it take 33gals? I did notify the manager of problem. I stopped pumping on the first click. Which means I may have been able to pump another gallon or so. Now i am noticing my gauge seems to be acting up, as I have put nearly 300mi and still have just over half a tank. Could there be any relation?

The 99 expedition comes with a 26 gal tank as standard equip. and there is an optional 30 gal available. I suspect the gas pump you used is not accurate, and needs to be recalibrated. I think it's just a coincidence that the gauge is acting up now. Hopefully I'm wrong, and by some miracle you actually are now getting 300 miles on a half tank of gas! You may have a bad sending unit, this would result in inaccurate fuel tank readings.

Is 98 Eddie Bauer expedition transmission compatible with 2000 Eddie Bauer expedition transmission


Hi,
I don't have the answer but if you go to Car-part.com, and look up your vehicle it should show an INTERCHANGE.

Also, any decent used auto parts/salvage/wrecking yard can tell you.
