2001 Ford Expedition Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Ford Expedition

An illuminated Check Engine Light could indicate that one or more of the ignition coils has failed due to excessive spark plug gap. To fix this problem, the ignition coils that have failed, the spark plugs, and all coil boots should be replaced.

There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.

The mass air flow sensor (MAF) may fail resulting in a rough engine idle, hesitation on acceleration, and/or engine stalling. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. A failed mass air flow sensor will require replacement.

I have a problem with my truck draining my battery after sitting for tewnty four hours. I need advice or help.

over all it's a great vehical

I have a 2001 eddie bauer Expedition It just turned 209000, we purchased it with 48K in 2005. After 2 transmissions, It is going strong. The first tranny failed at 98K and the extended waranty covered it, the last was at 187K. Had to replace the compressor in November 2011, but I think all of these repairs are resonable considering its miles. It got my daughter through college, the last week...
