I have a 99 ford expedition eddie bauer. The heater works great sometimes and other times blows cold. If you turn it off and wait a few seconds and start it again it will work. Truck never over heats or...

You probably have air in the cooling system. These vehicles are sort of hard to bleed it out. I would recommend taking it to a dealership. Or you could take the rad cap off and run it but you will need a large funnel, one that is tight when going into the fill hole on the rad. Warm engine up, the fluid will rise a lot and this is normal. Once the engine is at operating temperature and the thermostat has opened up (grab upper rad hose it will be hot) rev it to 2500 rpm for about 10 seconds then release the gas pedal. This will help get the air out you will see bubbles in the funnel. Do that a few times (4 or 5) then leave it idle for a bit, put the hot air on through the vents it should stay hot if it is then you can put the rad cap back on if it doesn't stay hot you still have air in the system. I do it somewhat like this except I built a special rad cap specifically for the explorers.

My 99 ford explorer cuts out and dies when accelerating in drive

You may have dirty or clogged fuel injectors, may also be problems with the ignition system. Might also check the fuel pressure to make sure the fuel pump is working correctly.

91 explorer heater not blowing air

The blower motor is located under the hood on the passengers side next to the hood hinge on the firewall. But, check your blower motor resistor first. The resistor is usually the trouble maker. It is located next to the blower motor. It should have 2 screws holding it onto the heater housing. Also an electrical connector. I sincerely hope that this will get it working again. Best wishes to ya.

Dies when drive

My 99 Explorer would not run unless you held the pedal to the floor. Found out ford has a recall on their intake gaskets. If you see what the intake gaskets look like you'll wonder how the motor runs at all. I had that prob for 50,000 miles and I changed those gaskets and now it runs like a new ford.
