Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

Ford Expedition 2000

My Ford Expedition recently started to make these jerking movements. I have no check engine light on, so I can not check it with the code reader that I have. It feels like a cylinder misfire. It feels very similar to when number 8 cyl failed. At that time the check engine light went on and I could identify the proplem. I changed the ignition coil and the spark plug and everything worked just fine. On I have this problem. Could it be the same thing on another cyl? One thing I noticed the problem now is intermitten and happens around 50 MPH. Anybody with an idea of what it is?

Thanks
Antonio

    PyroPCMan,

    I have the same problem; however, when my 2001 Expedition jerks, it happens intermittently at just about any speed. If I speed up a little, it usually helps. When I am driving long distances, it will **** or miss randomly, even when at a constant speed. Also, sometimes, very random, my car will turn over, but not start. It will not idle. If I start it and give it gas, it will rev the engine. I have to do this for about 5 minutes before it will idle and allow me to put it into gear and go. Again, this is also intermittent with no pattern. Could the two problems be caused by the same thing? I have no check engine light.

    i have a 1998 expedition in the shop right now for the same problem. They dont seem to know what the problem is. At first they thought it was the spark plugs/coils. So they replaced them and it is still jerking. I have a check engine light on. I sure wish someone can help. I need this fixed

I have the same problem. Low rpm a **** or a shudder, high rpm runs fine. Also, at slow acceleration it will cut out then suddenly get its power back. I am looking into it being the being the TPS sensor (Throttle Position Sensor). I think these things can get dead spots. If a check engine light comes on, and you have a misfire, have the code read, chances are you need to change the ignition coil pack. It is just a matter of knowing which cylinder is misfiring.

    Well just checking back. I changed the TPS and the problem went away for a little while. But it was back. I checked my FUEL FILTER and it was clogged. I changed it and my problem has disappeared. My next check would have been the ignition system (coil packs and plugs), but this was not necessary because I was running lean due to lack of fuel.

Good Day Tony,

That's an intersting problem.... I would assume that if it was misfiring in a cylinder it would trip your check engine light as it did before. Because it only happens when you are going 50 it might be something else. What happens when you put the truck in park or nuetral and rev up the engine? Rev it up slowly and see if jerks or hesitates at any particular rpm range, I'm just trying to rule out if it's a possible transmission problem or engine problem. Let me know and I can assist further.

Good Luck

Recently bout three months my engine oil light


When an engine oil light comes on, this is the 911 call to you that your engine is having an emergency in that there is not enough oil to lubricate the moving parts of the motor that keep it operating. Those knocking noises that you heard were the dying breath of your once dependable Ford engine; which is now junk. Because you "didn't have the time to pick up oil", you will now have to find the time to either replace or completely rebuild the engine. The Expedition has a V-8 so expect to pay at least $3500 for a new motor.

2000 ford expidition


You may have a failing Mass Air Flow sensor, a quick test is to unplug the connector and drive the truck, if it runs better well their you go, the way this works is that the engine processor has failure mode strategy build in, so it substitutes a good signal for the missing one. After that just clear the codes and replace the sensor. The other issue may be fuel pressure, check the pressure and make sure it is ok under a load, a new fuel filter would poss. cure the issue also.
