A few times my car has stalled out and the engine failure light came on. The car continues to idle, but has no power. If I turn the car off, it will start up and have power. What is the problem?

Heres the kicker, some stories are familiar, as if its on a timer, shortly after 100k it all starts happening, dsmn japanese parts, belts went shortly after getting, then went for long time then it has quut twice, once for ignition electronics, now its throttle body and sensor the very next day after rebuilt transmission reinstalled. Costs were about the same as others, but still managed to get parts cheaper, its only $5000 for a new block in Canada and thats the installed price. Engine has a tic but thats Ford, that can be easily remedied with new or reconditioned heads, easy and cost effective if done befote it lrads to clogging sensors. Recommend new air filter after costant checking, goto keep it breathing easy otherwise sendors with cause electronics to make damaging adjustments if left for too long.

I bought a 2005 expidition eddie bauer, had 82k miles,only 3 wks and the altinator goes $130.00, cd player jams full of discs $260.00,8 months later the battery goes $125.00, 11months its time to get it inspected now remind you its only been less than a year and the engine lighe comes on and wont go off, first garage TRIES to fix it only to tell me to bring it to a ford dealer AFTER putting $1820.00 in parts and labor and couldn't fix it, goes to the dealer and after $920.00 in parts and labor they tell me it needs a whole new ENGINE for a mere $8000.00 and cant be inspected because the engine light wont go out...yours truly FRUSTRATED and BROKE both me and the truck. and do you think ford would work with me? nooooo...

I have a 2005 limited ford expedition but not thrilled with the driving. Air suspension compressor gets me sick constantly turning on. Advance Trac w/ABS light on dashboard is annoying. Love the interior, the electronic button for 3rd row seat, very roomy and exterior looks great. Not too happy with the stability of the vehicle. I had a 97 Eddie Bauer for 13 years and loved it..never had to replace the engine or transmission. My only concern was the ABS, It locked twice and failed to stop very scary moment...If anyone can share other problems please let us know so we can have an idea...I think Ford is not as bad people make it seem it just depends on the vehicle and maintenance...
