Ford Expedition Problems

Ignition Coil Failure Due to Excessive Spark Plug Gap

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.

One or More Spark Plugs May be Ejectioned From the Cylinder Head

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.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed MAF Sensor

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.

Engine Failsafe Mode came on after replacing the Throttle Position Sensor. What is wrong?

replace rear quik strut assy's rusted springs (1 answer)

My mechanic told me a couple months ago that this would need to be done but I could wait. Now he's saying it really needs to be done and rear tires need replacing too. He says the cost for parts and labor will be $980 - just for the strut/springs, it looks like that price is a little high. ...

Ford Expedition Recalls

Automatic Transmission Shifts To First Gear Unexpectedly

The vehicle's automatic transmission may shift unexpectedly and suddenly into first gear while driving, which can result in a loss of vehicle control, sudden slowing of the vehicle and possible transmission damage. Dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module with updated software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Reverse Gear Engagement and/or Lighting Issues

Certain vehicles may have been assembled with a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear. If this condition exists, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear and/or if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle's not signaling it is in reverse. Dealers will inspect and replace the transmission range sensor as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C23.

The Right Side, Second Row Seat Head Restraint May Fail

These vehicles may have inadequate welds on the head restraint support brackets for the second row, right side seat. In the event of a crash, the head restraint may not provide adequate protection, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the head restraints as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C22.
