Question about Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My expedition has been sitting forover 6 months now since a good friend stole mykeys and moved away. I am a mother of 4 and really cant afford the dealer ship so I have been asking my mechanic and he said that the pats system is shutting everything down. Is there any way to go around the system so I donthave topay all the money. He is tryingto fix this on his time for free for me. He said that it cranks but no fuel. Please help I need my truck working again soon instead of asking for rides all the time. Thank you in advance.

Have your mechanic check the fuel cutout switch. During heavy cranking sometimes the switch will cut out and not let the engine get fuel. If you hear the fuel pump running this of course is not the problem. There is a fuel pump relay on the driver's side under the hood in the engine compartment. Your mechanic can bypass the relay to insure that the fuel pump is working but it is not suggested that you have this for a cure ONLY A TEST.

Okay for starters the car starts up fine and everything its just thatwhen i go to shift into drive or 1 or 2 and press on the gas it goes no where as if its in nuetral reverse does work , before all this...

first check the fluid level in the transmission,If the level is up where it needs to be check the shift lever at the transmission have someone shift it inside while you check outside to see if its actually moving the gear selector its possible its broken,if not then your transmission is bad.

Where is the oil drain plug located on a 2003 ford mustang. do you have a diagram?

If you need a diagram, you really should not be doing this. Can you afford a new engine? maybe you need to find a good reliable repair shop to handle your cars needs. Stay away from Franchises, find out where your friends take their cars.

Rear air bag wont release

Tell your friends to come over for a party. Then you can sit in the truck and all get really wasted on beer & weed. Make sure you keep the windows rolled up so you don't lose valuable pot smoke. The smoke will also aid in lubricating the air bag, thus helping it release, along with some help from your stoned friends. Hope this answer was of some help.

Transmission has been rebuilt but manual shift lever wont work and it is not bound up in transmission it something under the transmission pan

I sounds as though your friend bent the parking pin, or tried to engage park with your van moving either forward or back and has wedged it somehow. you can try to grease the **** linkage or have this done it may help or you may need a new park pin

Truck wont start after sitting for about 6-10 hours.

Put you a really good battery about $90 or more. Try interstate MTP-65 or MT-65. I dont work for them but I'll bet it'll fix it
