If the mass air flow sensor is not working it will not get the correct air fuel mixtre in the engine and it will stall, sputter, miss and die. This needs replaced by the symptons your describing. You can replace this youself. It is in the air intake system. When you buy a new one you will be able to see the old one and replace it.

don't want you installing parts to no

You need alot of knowledge to work on
todays vehicles, and it is a diagnostic or
testing solution,not a guessing game

2003 Expedition engine light flashes on/off when eccellerating took to Auto zone, code was P0301, changed out plug and COP still doing smaething. It sputters when accelerating. What wrong with it?

First, are you certain you changed the plug for number 1? If so, check the power connection to the COP. If it is dirty or loose that can cause a misfire also.

2006 ford exdedition, orange service light is on

This the check engine light and indicates that the computer has detected a problem with the engine system. You will need to get the diagnostic code read to identify the problem. Places like Auto Zone or NAPA stores will do this at no charge. Or you can take your car to the dealer or service station.
If the check engine light is blinking, take it in for service as soon as possible, you could cause damage if driven too long this way.

What is the meaning of CHECK ENGINE ZONE for my ford expedetion 2003 v8 gasoline

I checked the manual for 'CHECK ENGINE ZONE' and could find no reference to this for the 2003 Expedition.

There is a Service Engine Soon light though.

I looked all over the manual and could find no instrument cluster light to that effect.

Can you tell me what page refers to this?

My 2003 Ford Expedition runs rough at idle and the service light started blinking.

it sounds like you need to tune up your vehicle. whenever the service light blinks it usually means you have a miss fire. You can take it to auto Zone to retrieve the code. The code should tell you what cylinder is miss firing.Hope this helps. Please leave comment.

Service Engine Soon remains on

you have a problem somewhere in vehicle. put a obd 2 scanner to read codes, and after fixed the check engine light can be turned off with scanner. if no access to scanner, any auto parts place will scan car for no cost. especially at auto zone. carl,
