Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

3 Answers

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition with a 113, 000 miles on it. I have taken it to 2 mechanics to find out why it stalls for second after the vehicle has been running for a long time. On short distances/drives it works fine. They have performed numerous diagnostics but can't seem to locate the problem. I have had a new fuel pump, fuel filter and spark plugs installed.

Have they kept it long enough & driven it
enough to agree with you,that there is a problem?

On todays vehicles they have to be knowledgable
and skilled enough to use an oscilloscope or they
may never find your issues.

Also does the shop have a data base

If not then they wouldn't have access to wiring diagrams
& are only looking at scanner data & not component
testing.

They have to actually check everything on the truck &
see what does work
Eventually they will find something a miss
If they only use the scan tool & expect it to tell
them something, your at the wrong shop

    I agree with Brian
    They have to go testing &
    wire checking etc

This is a shot in the dark with out running diagnostics myself but here it goes, I had a 1988 Cavalier that would just die while I was driving it. On short drives, in the morning, when the engine was cool... it would not die. It would only die after the engine heated up to a certain point.

I took it all over the place to see what the problem was and nobody could figure it out, until finally I took it to my local Firestone shop and they had a special diagnostic tool that checked all of the electrical connections and low and behold I had a misc. wire that crossed the back of my engine from one side of the engine bay to the other. This wire was melted to my engine block and when the engine heated up to a certain point the wire would short out.

After they pinpointed the wire they replaced it with an in-tact wire and it worked beautifully.

Again, I am not stating that this is for sure your problem, but take it from me that there are better diagnostics to run then your standard error code ODB II dump.

Hope that helps and let me know if there are any developments.

Brian

The red battery light on my 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6L (73,000 miles) just came on tonight. Is it the alternator, belt, tensioner, or just battery cables? Replaced battery less than 2 years ago with Optima...


The alternator change is not that difficult. I would take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them test the alternator output. Check the battery cables and make sure they are clear of corrosion and are tight. A parts store can also test the condition of the battery. Most parts stores will check the alternator output and battery for free. If you visit the autozone.com website, you can also register your vehicle information and have access to an online repair manual that will show the procedures for changing the alternator if it is necessary. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Ignition Distributor location


There is no cap and rotor, as the vehicles igntion system is DIS (digital ignition system). The recommended tune-up on these motors require sparkplug and coil replacement. The coil type in this vehicle is COPs (coil over plugs). Usually moist and oxidation develope on the sparkplug chamber walls from faulty or worn coil boots. This causes the coil to short, they must be replaced at 75,000 miles at the same time the sparkplugs are replaced. Typical symtoms are: Vehicle stalls (restarts and runs normal), intermitted jerks/sputter while driving, misfires, rough idle, severe power loss. Hopefully this helps

No key for 2001 ford expedition


you can't start the vehicle without taking it in and having a new key programmed to it- you can have a key made- it will unlock it and turn in the ign. but will not start without programming- your ford dealer may be able to get the key code for the vehicle but most likely you'll also have to purchase a new ign. cylinder and have 2 keys made because it takes 2 keys to program after an erase. hope this helps, good luck
