2008 ford expedition, its chugging at all different speeds even idles funny some times. It happens very sporadically, its very slight but noticeable.


Replace/check plugs wires and coils. Helps to use a spark plug tester to isolate a misfire. Next check/clean/ and replace maf sensor, idle control valve, and egr tube/valve.

Where is the egr valve on a 99 Ford expedition


The EGR valve is in a very difficult spot to work on. If the EGR is bad it will set off the check engine light and make the vehicle run rough or stall at idle. It really doesn't make it run rough while driving or accelerating. What are the conditions when the car runs rough?

It sputters and hesitates sometimes when on low speed


There are a few things you can look at here:
  1. The EGR Valve or Idle Air Control Valve
  2. Check for misfires in your cylinders, possibly bad coil
  3. Check your fuel pump and fuel filter
Those are the most common issues with fords spitting and sputtering

1997 ford f150 just had egr valve replaced.. engine is hesitant and check engine light is on with error code 401.. whats the prob?


Everyone says to test out your DPFE sensor. This controls the flow of the egr. When the codes pull up, everyone thinks its the egr, but really its this little guy.
Take it by a shop and see if they can mess with the bugger. They usually run about $50+.

How would a 2006 ford expedition run with bad gas in it


It could consist of skipping, engine cutting off or hesitates from starting, idling . Bad gas gives numerous signs, the best way I have found to deal with this is, Buy a octane booster 104, go to the gas station and put a couple of gallons of high premium in to tank to disperse the water in the gas. They also make a liquid to take water out of gas which also goes into the tank.

1989 Grand Marquis 5.0 hesitation under load at 25, 40, 50 mph and slightly rough idle


What happens when you unplug and cap the vacuum line at the EGR valve? Does the problem go away? Before doing this does the car idle rough? If so perhaps the EGR is stuck open...
