A 7.3 with 97K miles is just getting started on it's lifespan. These motors will last for sometimes 300K miles with regular service. They do have a 100K powertrain warranty so you're close to out of warranty on this one. The transmissions and torque converters were sometimes weak, but if you treat them right, they'll last.
Personally, I've got a ;'01 Limited since 2003 and I've got close to 180,000 miles on it... I've done regular service on it, brakes, changed the tranny out, have a banks kit on it, and it runs like there's no tomorrow.
Great rig, highly recommend a diesel.
Even tho ford isn't making the Excursion any more, the Super Duty is around to stay for a while so there'll always be service parts for the Excursion...
Hope that helps in your decision... KEN

You might not know what a good running diesel sounds like, but 7.3L are a good solid engine. They are a little noisy and slow, but lots of pulling power. Anyway, it is always a good idea to have a mechanic check out a car before you buy it. Take the Excursion to a Ford dealership or a diesel mechanic and have them check it out. I hope this helps, contact me at FixYa if you need any more help.

I would like to know what type and weight of oils to use in my 04 Excursion. Its a 4WD Eddie Bauer. I am attempting to get all specs so that I may just get under it one weekend and change all the fluids...

Ok, you use 15W 40 for engine oil rated for diesels for most conditions If it's going to be below -20, you should use 5W 40 full synthetic for diesel. It takes 5 quarts, so buy 6. For your transmission model 4R100 and transfer case, it takes 6.4 quarts Dexron III or equivalent transmission oil. Your transfer case takes the same oil. It takes 17 quarts for a total refill, which means draining the torque converter as well. I don't have the specs handy here for the diffs, but your automotive supplier should be able to tell you. It always pays to buy a little extra, too. The other thing that is REALLY important to change, especially with a diesel, is your engine coolant. The best place to buy your coolant is right from Ford and get their additive. They will tell you exactly how much you need. It is critical to the life of your diesel engine to get the coolant that's designed for it, and don't let anyone tell you anything different. I have replace many liners that were pinholed from cavitation from using the wrong coolant. Front and rear diffs: XY-90-GL in the front (SAE 90) in the front, 3.8 pints, XY-75W140-QL (synthetic)in the rear 6.5-6.9 pints, plus 2 XL-3 4oz modifiers in the rear in you have a limited slip. You can also check your powersteering fluid to make sure it looks clean and doesn't smell burnt. Have a fun weekend!

2005 ford excursion cam sensor location I need to change the cam sensor and the crank sensors on my excursion and i do not know where they are located

On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.

Where is the vacuum hose located on my 2000 ford excursion Limited? It is the 7/3 diesel engine. I need to find it so my husband can replace it. It has a leak.

the main vacuum hose is at the main intake frame at the top of the engin

but the vacuum lines for the vacuum systeme are more than one which one you main.
any way use this methode to check for leaking hoses.
A small piece of vacuum hose (1/4-inch inside diameter) can be used as a stethoscope to detect vacuum leaks. Hold one end of the hose to your ear and probe around vacuum hoses and fittings, listening for the
"hissin'g" sound characteristic of a vacuum leak.

(It's quite common for vacuum hoses,especially those in the emissions system, tobe color coded or identified by colored stripes molded into them. Various systems require hoses with different wall thickness, collapse resistance and temperature resistance.

When replacing hoses, be sure the new ones are made of
the same material.

Often the only effective way to check a hose is to remove it completely from the vehicle.

If more than one hose is removed, be sure to label the hoses
and fittings to ensure correct installation.

When checking vacuum hoses, be sure to include any plastic
T-fittings in the check. Inspect the fittings for cracks and
thehose where it fits over each fitting for distortion, which
could cause leakage.
. Warning: When probing with the vacuu hose stethoscope, be careful not to
come into contact with moving engine components such as drivebelts, the cooling fan, etc.
