That's normal, the fuel sloshing in the tank sometimes leaves the fuel pump sump in the air, cutting the fuel flow to the engine. But you could have also some impurities in the tank that are lifted from the bottom when the fuel agitates and clogging temporarily the sump - just clean the tank.

SOURCE: 2000 contour hesitates only at 1/4 tank of gas

My guess would be dirty fuel tank. Possibly clogged fuel pump strainer.

What cause the 2000 expedition to run ruff and hesitate on acceleration

There are many things that can cause this. It could be a stretched or jumped timing chain, low fuel pressure, a bad TP sensor, a faulty MAP sensor, a bad MAF sensor, intake manifold gasket, internal engine damage, or a clogged catalytic converter. I would start with checking compression to rule out internal engine problems. If compression is good on all cylinders next check fuel pressure. If these 2 areas are ok, perform a backpressure test to rule out a restricted exhaust.

Stalled while driving

Sounds like the engine is starving for fuel. You might try changing the fuel filter. It also cold be water in your fuel tank. Try putting some dry gas in the tank.

The low fuel light is on but even after putting gas in my 1999 Expedition, the fuel gauge still shows low fuel. What is the problem? how much gas is in the tank?

First the problem is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit, that is located inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to access the part for replacement. As to the how much fuel remains there is not way to know this.

How would a 2006 ford expedition run with bad gas in it

It could consist of skipping, engine cutting off or hesitates from starting, idling . Bad gas gives numerous signs, the best way I have found to deal with this is, Buy a octane booster 104, go to the gas station and put a couple of gallons of high premium in to tank to disperse the water in the gas. They also make a liquid to take water out of gas which also goes into the tank.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.
