If the engines of today are properly maintained, they are probably good for 200k+ miles (330k)..

Obviously, you'll want to do your homework on any vehicle that much "mileage" on it. Assuming it is a 5.4L in there, the one thing about the engine that you should know is that there have been issues with some of those model years blowing out spark plugs from the cylinder head due to a poor design.

Of course, you can probably read enough horror stories on any vehicle and any engine that will make you want to invest in a Schwinn or a Huffy... so go with your gut. If it looks good, mechanically checks out, you feel like the seller is being honest about it, and the price is right... go for it. Especially if you're in a situation where this is going to be a secondary vehicle that you're going to drive 10,000k - 15,000k/year.

If the check engine light is on I would check for trouble codes first.
If not, look for a vac leak or low fuel pressure.

What is the meaning of CHECK ENGINE ZONE for my ford expedetion 2003 v8 gasoline


http://www.ford.com/owner-services/customer-support/ask-ford-faqs?qtype=uq&inputtext=check+engine+zone

http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WO3EXD/~MUS~LEN/41/03exdog5e.pdf

I checked the manual for 'CHECK ENGINE ZONE' and could find no reference to this for the 2003 Expedition.

There is a Service Engine Soon light though.

I looked all over the manual and could find no instrument cluster light to that effect.

Can you tell me what page refers to this?

"chatter" or miss at about 50mph


I'm thinking engine miss. How long since the plugs have been changed? I'm thinking it has a bad coil. What size engine do you have? 2003 expedition or E350?

Engine seems to miss / sputter between 30 mph and 50 mph. Really noticeable when going uphill at any grade. 2005 ford expedition 5.4l


Hi Nascar2nd.
From what you are describing it appears like an engine misfire.
These trucks are notorious for bad ignition coils.
They don't always set a code either, it depends on several factors.
To check these out in my shop there is a mode in our scan tool called "mode 6". This allows us to look at certain engine data parameters to look at misfire to locate the offending cylinder(s).
Unfortunately without the use of a scan tool you will not be able to see this.
It may be in your best interests to get a shop to look at this for you and verify the bad cylinder.
I have had issues with aftermarket coils and use Ford originals exclusively now. They have also reduced the price of them, good thing too because we go through many.
Might be an opportune time to replace spark plugs as well. worn spark plugs can accelerate coil failure as a worn plug takes more energy to fire.
Thank you for using FixYa !
