I will try to help you. Most of the time when you get a different vehicle, it has had an oil change, new air filter, and the tires are airred up. If the brakes were just done, some of the parts were new and all the calipers were freshly serviced.

Now that you have driven the vehicle, the tires may have lost a little air, the oils dirty and so is the airfilter. Any additive the Dealer or former owner put in is wearing out. Check your tires, do the oil change and filter, then check the wheels for dragging brakes. Jack a wheel up and spin the tire to see if it drags.

Next, go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan of your on-board computer. Sometimes the "Check Engine" light does not have to be on to have a problem. O2 sensors can make a big difference in mileage. Buy at least a Midgrade fuel. I believe your gas flap has a minimum fuel rating on it. My Aviator was a 91.

On the fuel, when gas was a dollar the fuel was 8 to 10 cents a grade more. Now with gas closing in on $3, the next grade is still 10 cents a gallon. With the Trip computers, I could prove my 1994 model on up; had better mileage with better fuel.

Try to remember if your commute took longer due to Traffic. Were there construction zones? You may have driven 100 miles each time, but the conditions may have been less favorable. Remember to get the scan I recommended and do your maintenance. Good luck with this, would be interested to know the outcome.

Need oil filter size for a 2000 ford expedition, eddie bower edition

First, it's an Eddie Bauer Edition (says so right on your truck).
Second, if you call ANY auto parts store, they will look it up for you, and probably even sell you one! (If they couldn't find it before, maybe it's because you misspelled Bauer!) ;)

Blow-ed out a spark plug--- 2000 Ford Expedition--Eddie Bower edition. V-8

This happens way more than it should. Go online and read history on this engine. has full defect reports by NHTSA, Tech Service Bulletins, Owner Complaints.

Some use a Helicoil to try to fix this. About only good point is that sparkplugs are 100,000 mile type and may not need to be serviced again. Buy only 1 piece sparkplug as replacement.

Im looking for parts for my 98 expedition and I would like to know what years can be used? I need to replace my drivers side window and some other little things, I have someone willing to sell me a 2000...

typically the 97 to 02 will interchange, but only the main parts. the difference in model such as the packages like xlt/eddie bower will be the difference.
