Ford Expedition ProblemsCheck Engine Light due to worn spark plugs
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.
My 20 02 Expedition has 190,000 miles. It has been a good vehicle other than 2 fuel pump replacements. Idle normally 600 rpm. Last couple of days Idle oscillated up to 1200 and down to 500. When put in gear it was surging to 2000, with associated lunging.
checked for Vac leaks none noted. Cleaned the IAC Seams to have resolved the problem

Ford Expedition RecallsAutomatic 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.
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.
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.
