Question about 1998 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Brakes won't bleed!

I change a few of the brake lines on a 1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer and have tried for hours to bleed the lines with no luck. I just keep getting air and the pedal goes right to the floor I have checked to make sure all connections are secure and no more leaks and everything looks fine. Could there be a problem with the master cylinder or is there a special way to do them with ABS? Anything to help would be great!

The brake system on these units cant be bled at home if air gets into themaster cylinder and or the (hcu) hydraulic control unit,a special anti-lock brake test adapter has to be pluged into the control module, any atempt to bleed the system with out this tool wiil result in a spongy pedal

I am looking to buy a 1998 ford expedition eddie bauer 5.4 triton engine to pull a trailer dry weight 5526 pounds with a total gvw 7716, will this expedition handle this towing?

It would for short distances but you will notice once you have weight on it that your steering will suffer as well as the brakes as long as it's set up right with trailer brakes and some kind of rear suspension helper(air bags are the best,total adjust ability),also you might want to upgrade the air intake and some other power mods if you are concerned about mpg's then also look at doing a computer upgrade as well.
The biggest problem I had with mine was the short wheel base tended to be very squirmy at highway speeds I had to install stabilizer arms for towing,after that I decided to buy a quad cab truck it ended up being cheaper in the long run.
Hope this helps.
