This is likely caused by a ignition coil or spark plug, testing with a scanner to determine which cylinder is at fault is the first thing that needs done. Coils are prone to having a high fail rate on this model.

In my 2000 ford expedition my temp gauge keep jumping back and fourth when I run my ac. Y?


Running the AC does increase load on the engine, and thus heating, so if gauge changes gradually, this is because the compressor kicks in for a while, then kicks out. If cooling system is not working properly, small additional load could cause temp change. Other possibility is compressor going bad and causing excess drag.

If change is sudden, loose wire somewhere near compressor could be the issue.

Can you be more specific, like engine size, transmission type, vehicle mileage, does the engine rpm's fall or flicker when start to "jump and jerk", does it keep doing it above that speed or stops beyond it. I am trying to determine if it is an engine or transmission problem. But I need details.

replace all the ignition coils, this vehicle is known for ignition coil failure. Typical symtoms include: jerks when accellerating, jerks on light-heavy loads, misfire, stalls, check engine light. These coils usually last up to 80k miles.

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.


have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

2003 Expedition jerking/cutting out.


Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER!! Changed the fuel filter and thing runs fine!!
