Question about 2002 Ford Expedition
Failed to start twice in previous 8 months, but it started up fine both times by the time I had it towed to shop. They said fuel line, electrical, etc, was ok. Since then, it seems I always have to keep the ignition going for a bit longer than I used to, but it always starts. Now it won't start, although I hear the engine cranking. It did rain quite a bit, but not more than other times when it would start, either during or after the rain. Something as simple as checking spark plugs is a 2-hr job by expert mechanics, probably half a day if at all possible for me. Should I just wait it out in case something got wet? Could it be that simple, or is there something else at play?
Have a 1999 Ford Expedition that did something similar. I just waited it out after taking it to the Dealer where they made sure the keys were programmed for the vehicle (of which I have 3 keys that work).
It is possible that something isn't right, but I just used the vehicle until the problem went away.
If they checked the fuel, electrical, etc. and didn't find anything, I think that I can't do any better than the dealership.
My Expediton seems to work ok now. I don't know what was wrong when it didn't start correctly. lol.
