Ford Expedition Stalling Problems

2456

Comments

  • I don't know what the diagnostic code was. You can call the dealership that I used, (number in previous posts from me)and they might be able to tell you. I also replaced the fuel filter, etc. but it did not fix the problem. And, like you, my car seemed to stall more after making a turn. It sounds pretty similar to the same problem I was having.'
    It had to get pretty bad before it finally triggered the computer though. When it finally did, it had stalled 3 times in a one hour period. That was the worst it had ever been, and that's when it finally came up with a code they could read.
    Best of luck~

  • Orlando32817,
    Were you able to find the diagnostic code. Mine did the same thing today when turning onto a ramp off of a highway, but no light came on. I lost all power and had to coast to the side. Put vehicle into park and turned it off. Then turned it back on and it started right up. No lights or error codes came on... please help !
  • If your cars are suffering from the same thing mine was, then the code won't trigger until it gets really bad. I would take it to the dealership and have them do a search on bad wire harnesses. There is documentation with Ford, because my dealership found it.

    Good luck
  • I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY EXP. STALLS & LOSES POWER LIKE ITS RUNNING ON HALF THE CYLINDERS. STALLS WHEN I'M DRIVING, SO I POP IT IN TO NUETRAL TURN THE KEY OFF & BACK ON QUICK TO START IT BACK UP & IT RUNS FINE FOR THE TIME BEING. THANK GOD THIS HASN'T HAPPENED TO MY WIFE YET! I LIVE ON LONG ISLAND & HAVENT CALLED A DEALER YET, BUT AFTER READING EVERYBODIES POSTS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM I WILL BE TO LET THEM KNOW. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM AND FORD NEEDS TO BE INFORMED MORE AND ISSUE A RECALL FOR THIS IMMEDIATELY. I DID HAVE CODES P0354,P0355,P0356,P0358 PULLED UP BY AUTOZONE. DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT THESE CODES MEAN?

    I sure don't know what the codes mean, but Ford would know. I would just put some heat on your local dealership to do a search on the information that I've posted already. The problem exists, and they know about it. Why they haven't just posted a recall, I have no idea. I was in several unsafe situations with my car when it would just shut off on me. I tow a 3 horse trailer, and it quit on me once while doing that!! I think at first they just thought I was a neurotic woman, but soon realized that it was the car that was crazy, not me!!
    Best of luck~
  • Ok i found the problem from a guy at another site.

    here what daves1955 said

    I got a call from dealer two this afternoon. Apparently there is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) that covers this problem. According to the TSB there is an electrical lead that runs around the power steering pump and oil pressure sending unit. The electrical lead may rub the power steering unit and cause a short to ground.

    According to the service adviser they put some heat shrink on the electrical lead and ran the vehicle over the past two days. They did not experience the cutting out at idle.

    Also according to the service advisor the problem with the electrical lead can cause any of the following.

    Hard starting condition.
    No starting condition.
    Rough idle.
    Cut out at idle.
    Cut out when cornering.

    The total repair bill is 79.00 for one hour of labor.

    Since I am out of town this week and next, my wife will pick the vehicle up this weekend and take it for a ride to deterrmine the outcome. Hopefully the problem is solved.

    he later said that fixed it. I am going to try to find what TSB that is and get more details. But i think i can find where the short is now based on that info above.

    2002 Expedition - Cruise was in use when I applied the brake to come to a stop. The vehicle engine surged and lunged forward while my foot was still on the brake. This problem has occured periodically. This model has the adjustable pedals.

    Did you ever find out what was wrong. I also have a 2001 expedition with the surge problem. Just waiting at a light (with my foot on the brake) sometimes the tach or the speedometer will jump and the car will surge forward. Happens about every other month.
  • No, sorry we never found out the cause of the surge. We eventually traded the Expedition in on a 07 Nissan Pathfinder before I had to put any more time and money into it.
  • Ok guys I finally figured out what was the hesitation cause for my 2003 expedition 4.6L. In my case it turned out to be bad coils. Since it didnt throw a code which one was bad I replaced them all. That fixed it. It would be to expensive to have the dealer troubleshoot which ones are bad (lot of time) or replace them all (at over $60 each dealer price) so I elected to get an aftermarket set of 8 units from ebay for $110 (130 with shipping). After I put them in the problem finally went away. I will however let you all know what I did before that to troubleshoot the problem.
    0)checked the check engine light code (was P0430 bad converter?) Yea right!!! dealer repair $1800. I didnt do that yet.
    1)Changed fuel filter (was slightly plugged anyway after 90,000)
    2)Changed spark plugs (looked good but fairly worn)
    3)cleaned idle control valve (idled smooth before and after)
    4)removed butterfly air plenum and EGR valve and cleaned EGR VALVE and AIR passageways (slightly clogged passages)
    5) I added a fuel pressure monitor gage to verify the fuel pressure stayed constant during the hesitation. (it avererages 30-40 psi with vacuum hose connected to fuel regulator and nearly 60 psi when removed)
    6)I tried "capping" the vacuum tubes to the fuel regulator,egr,evaporaative control valves to verify that none of them add or cause the hesistation. (they did not)
    7)Checked throttle control sensor restance was smooth and constant. (no dead spots)
    8)even dropped the gas tank to check for dirt on pump pickup filter screen( no dirt was clean)
    9)replaced PCV vlave and rebuilt pcv hose assembly with plastic elbows since origianal rubber ones were collapsing (no improvement on hesistation)
    10) did the TSB where the oil sending unit cable is covered with plastic tube and had the PCM reflashed with later firmware (no improvment but was supposed to help with hesistation due to alterantor/pcm interaction)
    11) Replaced all coil on plug coils with aftermarket substitutes. (problem solved!!!!!!) check ebay.

    So besides doing the easy stuff (PCV and hose, gas filter,plugs,firware,etc) I would go put the coils with the plugs since I now find that they fail in a very soft way where they tend to fool you with that intermittancy when they cut out sometimes once in 50 miles or more. I measured the restance of my old coils and new ones and they all meaure about 5500 to 6500 ohms on the secondary and old ones looked perfectly fine go figure.

    I have a 2007 expedition xlt with 3000 miles. I have never owned a Ford truck, Dodges till now. I notice that just prior to shifting on accelerating there is a vibration I can feel through the gas pedel. Is this normal ?? It happens either on hard or regular acceleration and some times at highway speeds. The only thing I have done to it is 20 in wheels and 285 tires but I noticed the same thing before the wheel/tire change.

    Call the Ford directly and talk to them. Also, try a different deal. Search the TSB's for that year and look for a note about the wire harness.
  • buzzz1buzzz1 Posts: 42
    Does anyone feel a slight vibration in the gas pedal and steering wheel when the truck is upshifting? It seems to be worse going up hill. 2500-3100 RPM's is the point when I feel the vibration mostly.
  • buzzz1buzzz1 Posts: 42
    fkocka,

    Any resolution to this? I am feeling the same thing. It happens at 2500-3000rpms while accelerating. Like a buzzing in the gas pedal.
  • I was never able to resolve the problem. After having to replace the fuel pump, which if anyone knows that means dropping the fuel tank, I got tired of working on it. We decided to trade our Expedition in on a Nissan Pathfinder.

    There is probably a new flash for this trans. Ask your dealer.

    I have an 03 5.7 with similar problems. Having intake manifols removed Monday to look for cracks & leaks, replace plugs & boots. I'd like to go ahead and do the coil packs as well. Do you have ebay dealer info where you got yours. The only thing I found was quite a bit more and the rest were for F150's, which may be a correct part but I don't know how to determine that. :(

    Anyone know the correct part # for an 03 5.7 Expedition coil pack?

    Thanks!

  • 06 Expedition will occasionally stall when cornering (getting on/off hwy ramps) or will lose power (no stall-but no power) when trying hard acceleration. trying to determine root cause/fix before giving my life and life savings to dealer. Any ideas???

    Is it a stutter, like it lost all spark momentarily?
    Does it happen more often when turning or making u turns?

  • it happen twice while cornering, once while getting off hwy and the other time when making a right turn. the other times have been on straight-a-ways.
