Whenever I start my 2001 Ford Expedition the starter seems to get stuck. We replaced the starter and the solenoid switch. There is also this aweful clanking sound. Any help would be appreciated.

Check the flywheel teeth.sounds like you may have lost a couple or burred them badly(a bad starter pinion will do it every time....)

2000 expedition no crank

try to turn the motor over by hand. If you can't. Remove the serpentine belt and you'll most likely find a frozen alternator or water pump or something.

It's not the starter. Look on the firewall it will be the solenoid switch

2003 ford expedition replaced engine now does not crank no power to starter with key in crank position

You need to check the + 've voltage at the solenoid switch which is activated by the ignition key . if there is no power the ignition switch is faulty, if not the solenoid is not working and must be replaced. however if there is power and the solenoid clicks then the fault is with the starter motor. It will be best to remove and check the brush and commutator and check it externally.

I am having a no start no crank problem with my 2000 ford expedition. Battery is fine, starter is fine changed the solenoid that did not work and changed the wire from the starter to the solenoid. Still...

I am experiencing the same issue with my 2001 expeditiion. Just curious... after the vehicle has been running hot for a while and you park and shut the motor, then it won't restart? Unless I wait for approx 1/2 hour when motor has cooled then it starts up. I have had mechanics check the fuel line and the fuel seems to "vapor lock". The fuel pump may need repaired/replaced. I am not experiencing and electrical issue. This is a fuel intake issue.

2001 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park

brake-sahift interlock solenoid not working. check fuse first. when key is on and brake is pressed, it either activates or deactivates the solenoid so you can shift out of park. safety thing.
chrck owner manual for a mechanical overide process. maybe there is one.

I recently changed my battery on my 2001 expedition and now I have starting problems and I don't know what to very random but today I would assume it's the temperature...any suggestions

Could still be a number of things. If the jump works, first order would be to get the system checked. That would eliminate a couple of possibilities of alternator, battery, and wiring. It allows all the items listed to be tested under a non-load and loaded condition.

If those are good then start leaning towards the starting system. Starter/starter solenoid, ignition switch on column.

Never hurts to have a battery charger around or one of the new starter amps that are available.

Starter wont stop spinning

The starter relay may be sticking on start. Get someone to start truck and when problem starts hit relay lightly wih hammer. A cheap voltmeter will tell you if relay is sticking or still energised from ingnition switch after key release from start position.

1997 expedition turn key on and starts it's self

Under the hood on the passenger fire wall you will see the starter solenoid.Unplug the small wire running to it and see if your problem goes away.If it does problem is ignition switch if it does not then tap the solenoid and see if it quits.If this takes care of it then solenoid is bad.
