2004 Ford Expedition Problems
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.

However, in the last year the tire sensor will not shut off even though tires have been checked and replaced, and the back up sensor is not working. Seems like these things are common. I still love my vehicle and would buy another one.
We have an 04 expedition and I figured with the bad reviews I should represent the many people who have been very happy with their expeditions, but do not write reviews because there's no reason to even think about it. I currently have 82,000 mile on my eddie bauer and it has been flawless. We tow a camper and have had no major issues. It has needed one set of brakes, a battery and tires. I ha...
