No coolant, stuck thermostat, bad water pump, busted hose, leaking radiator or heater core, bad intake manifold gasket, and bad head gasket. When you run an engine hot, to the point is shuts down on you, you stand a great chance of warping the heads, thus a blown head gasket. Check the coolant, if it's it low, start the engine and start filling it. If it starts to run bad , then you have probably blown the head gasket.

Well, not knowing anything other than what you have posted....the first thing I would do is check the fluid level. If you have done that and it is okay then the thermostat could be the next step. Next would be the water pump.....

While checking things out, have your Expedition sit there in the driveway with the engine running at idle (in park) and with the hood open, see if your fan kicks on....if it doesn't after your engine heats up to operating temperature (about 5-8 minutes running at idle) check the fuse.

This should get you started in the right direction....checking the fan/fuse/fluid is free and can be done immediately!

For expedition 99, my dashboard light doesn't work anymore, I've tried finding what fuse to replace but unable to locate problem.


There are two fuse's , one is in the under hood fuse /relay center or as ford calls it Battery junction block and one in the central junction block Blown fuse(s): Battery junction box (BJB) Fuse 6 (15A) and central junction box (CJB) Fuse 18 (5A ,on the lids are the # locations .Are you saying that nothing lights , radio, heater controls , back lighting for the instrument cluster . No check engine light, or any other warning lights . Do all the gauges work ? CJB is located left side of dash . Check the fuse's ! 25309735-p0bbf4gezpmb21wjojjnal1o-3-3.gif

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?

I have a 99 ford expedition and my fuel pump stop pumping Trying to find the fuel pump fuse do not have owners manuel Where is the fuel pump fuse


Here is the manual
FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The "Fuel Reset" indicator light will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt. 1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position. 2. Check the fuel system for leaks. 3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in the reset button. 4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position. 5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the passenger's foot well, behind the kick panel.
