Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

3 Answers

2000 Ford Expedition My Expedition (4.6L V-9 2WD) has had an intermittent problem of cutting out. The Check Engine light was not coming on - so I figured it is not a misfire. It drove just like it had a real bad miss. Thought maybe fuel pump - so started with replacing the fuel filter. Still doing it intermittently - and a Check Engine light finally came on. The code was a P1450 EVAP Emission Control System Pres System Fault. Could that be the source of my cutting in and out? Where should I start with this?

Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0446 or P1450 indicates that Self-Test has detected the Evaporative Emission Control System has excessive fuel tank vacuum. Also, a DTC P0446 indicates a vent control malfunction.

Possible causes:

EVAP canister purge outlet tube (EVAP canister purge valve to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.

EVAP canister tube (fuel tank to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.

Fuel vapor elbow on EVAP canister contaminated.

Restricted EVAP canister.

Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck closed (partially or fully).

Plugged or contaminated CV solenoid filter.

EVAP canister purge valve stuck open.

Fuel filler cap stuck closed (no vacuum relief).

VREF circuit open in fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor.

Damaged FTP sensor. (fuel tank pressure)

Check for kinks or bends in the fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister purge outlet tube and EVAP canister tube).

Visually inspect EVAP canister inlet port, CV solenoid filter and canister vent hose assembly for contamination or debris.

Check CV solenoid filter for blockage or contamination.

The common things I've seen are are mud in the canister and the canister vent solenoid being shot or the wiring to the canister vent solenoid being torn off. The resistance of the solenoid should be 48-65 ohms..
Pick up a Chiltons book and will give you a diagram of where exactly you find the canister. They are like $15 at any auto store. Good luck

Ford 2003 Expedition starts then shuts down


The only idea I hbave is for you to buy a OBD II sensor code reader. Know half the time the codes are generic, BUT also if you go buy a Advance auto they will read the code for you for free. And that code is the correct answer to your problem. Just make sure if your truck loses the code when you cut it off, that you don't cut it off when you get to advance auto.

Good Day Tony,

That's an intersting problem.... I would assume that if it was misfiring in a cylinder it would trip your check engine light as it did before. Because it only happens when you are going 50 it might be something else. What happens when you put the truck in park or nuetral and rev up the engine? Rev it up slowly and see if jerks or hesitates at any particular rpm range, I'm just trying to rule out if it's a possible transmission problem or engine problem. Let me know and I can assist further.

Good Luck
