It should idle at 1100 or 1200 max, If it is 5000, something is wrong. 500, should stall out. Check the idle screw first, make sure it didn't come loose, If not, then you have to adjust the idle air mix and all that. Check it out, hope this helps.

Whereis the power door lock rela for a 1998 Expedition. NOT the Eddie Bauer edition. The owners manual does not specify what the 5 relays are for on the fuse panel under the dash. My Expedition's jack

The relay your looking for is behind the right side of instrument panel , ford calls this a relay block , because there are three relays in it driver unlock relay , all lock and all unlock relay ! I cant be more specific , my diagram isn't very clear . You may have to take the glove box out to get at it.

Where the idele screw located on a 98 expedtion

You dont have any idle adjustments on any ford fuel injection engine since about 1988..There is a ajustment on the throttle body that looks kinda of like a adjustment But DONT adjust it..Its a throttle adjustment and set at the factory,,and its crucial to stay wheres it at for your engine management to work..If your having idle problems its probably the idle air control

1998 ford expadition ticking noise ,sound like valve spring broke slightly rough idel loss of power. oil pressure good every thing seems fine.

have your engine valve tappets adjusted to its specified adjustment by a competent mechanic then if the noise is still there then you need to have the engine timing checked. if these doesnt solve the problem then you need to pulldown the cylinder head to inspect the camshaft condition...

Rough idle then stalls

Vacume leak or bad idle motor. With the car in park and running with the hood open listen for leaks moving your hand around the different hoses looking for a change in the sounds that you hear. The idel motor also makes the car idel up to 1500 RPM or so right at start-up then idel down, If it doesn;t the idel motor is likly. Check engine light is on when running? Test for codes, Follow code test charts don't skip any steps!.

Doesn't want to idel runs fine down the road but won't stay running at idel

Try replacing the IAC valve. If you put a nickel in between the throttle cable connection and the hardstop screw and it runs and idles fine then that is definitely your problem.

Why will my 1998 Ford Expedition not Idol Properly

There is a Idle air control valve/motor on the very top of the intake assembly can't miss it when you take the plastic garabage off the top, that usually is the culprit about 50 bucks.
