Question about Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My 2005 Ford Expedition has intermittent starting problems. The engine cranks just fine but it will not start. After trying to start it for a few minutes it will start and then runs just fine. It will restart when the engine is warm but after it cools down it has difficulty restarting. No error codes were retuned on the diagnostic test and the fuel filter was changed 14 months ago. What is causing this problem?

It can be as simply as a bad battery. The Antitheft system views a low battery as an attempted theft action. Then the Antitheft cuts cranking voltage to around 7 Volts to prevent the engine from starting.

Battery voltage drops in cold weather. This would explain your problem and the activation of the Antitheft light.

Please rate my info. You might try adding a battery charger for a few minutes before you try starting it and see what effects it has.

Another idea is to turn off the A/C when cranking. The A/C clutch is a big drag on the system AND is temperature controlled to disengage the clutch at lower outside temperatures. If this control is not working, the A/C would not disengage.

You can get the starter tested on the vehicle with a DRAW test. The battery can be tested too. FREE at most big parts stores like Autozone.

2003 Ford Expedition is hard to start. I takes two to four turns of the key to get the engine to fire.


Could be fuel pressure loss.
The fuel pump is supposed to hold pressure when the engine stops.
If it falls to zero, you would have to cycle the fuel pump relay a few times to get it back up to start.
I would check the fuel pressure first.

1997 Ford expedition intermittent start problem


the expeditions are know for having injectors stick open and will flood the cylinder causing hydolock, when it does this again remove the spark plugs and have someone roll the engine over, if fuel comes out of one of the cylinders then that cylinders injector is at fault. the motor will turn over after it sits because all the fuel will eventually run past the piston rings.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.


You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.
