Question about 2008 Ford Expedition El

1 Answer

Burning smell I have a burning smell from mine after a short drive. This is a new car, under 1000 KM from last year. Is this a running in problem as the smell is more like sulphar smell. Can it be a sticking brake, though I do not feel it. Sometimes the car is stood for 4 weeks before use. Any ideas. I have the new style Eddie Buer. Bought in the Philippines. Any known problems or recall.

The sulphur smell is the result of the emmisions control system. I have an 06 Expedition with the exact same engine and emmisions system as yours. When the engine is cold, you don't smell that sulphur smell, but as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature, the exhaust gasses smell sulphury. Nothing wrong with your ride - they all do that. The dealership sometimes spray the underbody with some type of rubber to protect the vehicle against rust. This rubber stuff sometimes get sprayd on the exhaust as well and then you will smell "burning tires" after driving the vehicle. This will go away after a few thousend miles though.

My Alto VXR 2004 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser fast in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil.local car mechanic says engine weak he says gas kit and engine head problem


is is odometer reading?
all cars burn oil if driven real fast, at 80mph, lots.
what i need is ,
1: speeds driven. avg.
2: and what weight, oil , is it hot there, sure, then run 10w-40 oil.
3: how many liters of oil per miles.
some cars go for years, burning 1quart of oil per 3000 mile.s
1L/5000 km to 1L /1000 km. (new car to old)
even more. on older engines.
if the engine runs good, drive it and change oil more often.
check oil at every petrol fill up, and learn what your engine needs
all engine burn oil by design. its a fact.

do an engine compression test.
2 times wide open throttle.
on a warm engine
if lower that spec, 150psi?
then add 1 teaspoon, of oil to spark hole , see if compression rises
if it does, its rings are old.
post the numbers, if all are 150 or more , drive it like you stole it.
half joking there, but drive it. and change oil often and check oil levels
every fill up or every other (depends on reality)

GASKET.
post the compression test readings. only NUMBERS count.
we need numbers and engine size.

Evaporator coils freezing up


no year, stated, nor model car. no engine size or country.

blown fuse.

there are lots of honda back to 1973, just a clue here.



if the heater blower stalled it can burn up.

what info, easy, the FSM , no FSM work blind

or use alldata.com , login and read, it .

smell from where, under hood or dash, gee?

the new resistor will stick until burned in, they smell like hot metal

and are. it just nichrome wire resistor and run very hot.

and are air cooled so the resistor dont burn up.

so a shop would make sure the motor (fan) is good first.

and make sure current is not over 15amps. motors can in fact

partially short and draw too much current not just go dead.

then the resistor, not first.



"but got hot" what got hot,. the cab air exiting the vents, the motor fan

or the what?

a dead fan, motor, check the motor, apply 12vdc to fan like the FSM shows and test the motor, if it spins fast,. check current.

ones that suck too much current run a little too slow. so.......

1998 Grand Voyager with a re-built transmission needs front pads and rotors, rear wheel cylinders, right rear wheel bearing, top of strut tower, right outer tie rod end and alignment and compressor for...


My opinion is that if your going to have to pay a repair shop to do all of that, it may be better to start looking around for another vehicle. If you take the time to check around, there are quite a few people getting rid of that second vehicle because of job cut backs etc, that are in pretty good shape. The year doesn't bother me, I just check the condition, and how well it's been maintained, and mileage. I'm currently driving a 99 Caravan, and just bought a 98' that was lady driven, never seen snow, not a spot of rust on it, 4 new tires, new transmission last year and I'm thinking it will need very little if anything for safety, for $1000. I've been keeping my eye on it for 2 years now, as all I see the woman do is wash it, and make the odd short trip to town in it. She drives it to Florida for the winter, and back here to Canada in the summer.Try not to rush if you don't have to, but check all adds in local area, you just may find what you need, cheaper than repairing what you have. Now if you have a friend or neighbor or relative that can do most of that for you at a reduced labor rate, it may be the way to go. Chrysler replacement parts are usually fairly reasonable as far as price goes, and if your van is still in good shape other than that strut tower, it may give you a few more years of service when it's all done.

My 2005 Endeavor with 60000 km burns 1 litre of oil every 1000 km at highway speeds, about half that around town. Is this a normal occurrence or is there a problem with the motor?


Not normal, clean burning engine, mine has 220,000 kms's. Are you using a full synthetic oil? Tried it a couple times and it took 1 litre between oil changes. I use semi synthetic oil, no issues. How long has it been burning this amount of oil? Get to your dealer and have him fix your engine.
