Question about Ford Expedition
When I'm driving my1999 ford expedition the coolant gauge goes up not quite to the red zone but past the middle and when I stop my truck it goes back down to the middle and I've replaced the thermostat
your fan is the problem...it's not turning fast enough to cool the engine off. I need more info on what type of fan you have....elec fan or a clutch fan?

If you have a new thermostat, then your temp sensor is faulty. If sensor is new, then it is the wiring to sensor or problem with the ECM

it sounds like a possible head gasket problem,you can get the fluctuation from combustion gases getting pumped into your cooling system and creating gas pockets,i would suggest taking it to a shop and have them do a block test to look for combustion in the cooling system to confirm the problem,that way you will know for sure,if it comes up negative they can also perform a flow test to make sure there is no restriction in the cooling system such as a plugged radiator or a bad thermostat,hope this sheds a little light on it
