WHY DO THE SPARKS PLUGS IN A 1998 FORD EXPEDITION NEEDS REPLACING EVERY FOUR MONTHS


Seems quite odd to me - unless the Ford is driven day and night over four months and reaches the normal service intervals such high replacement rate is more plausible. Normally is takes a few years to wear good quality sparkplugs out.

What type of gas to use in 1998 ford expedition


Run the regular low octane (87) as the truck is computer controlled & the higher octane fuel burns slower & older cars with adjustable timing benefit with the slower burning fuel because the timing can be advanced further, but the computer controlled cars also control timing, so the more expensive gas is wasted & could cause emission problems down the road due to unburnt fuel running through the cat. & rest of pollution controls. If the vehicle detinates or pings when driven then run the higher octane fuel & run injector cleaner through to clean up the fuel system. Lucas is the best that I have used.

1998 Expedition: 2000 Ford Expedition I smell antifreeze with heate...


If you smell antifreeze it may be 3 possibilities: 1. you may have a leaking hose/hose connector , or water pump. 2. your heater core is bad and needs replaced. Unless you know what you are doing I would highly suggest taking to dealer for heater core replacement. The dash and steering colum has to be removed to get to the heater core. This is not an easy job believe me (about-900-1200 job). If you have your heater core replaced then also replace the climate control door. This is good preventative maintenance and also a a dollar saver. I would have a pressure check run on your radiator as a first thought. All you may have is a bad hose and that can easily be replaced.

Automobile problem


Check and make sure that you didn't pick up anything like a plastic bag on you exhaust system(maybe burnt on pipes looks dark brown or black) before you check any thing else. Good luck, contact if you need more help.

Burning smell


The sulphur smell is the result of the emmisions control system. I have an 06 Expedition with the exact same engine and emmisions system as yours. When the engine is cold, you don't smell that sulphur smell, but as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature, the exhaust gasses smell sulphury. Nothing wrong with your ride - they all do that. The dealership sometimes spray the underbody with some type of rubber to protect the vehicle against rust. This rubber stuff sometimes get sprayd on the exhaust as well and then you will smell "burning tires" after driving the vehicle. This will go away after a few thousend miles though.
