2001 Ford Excursion Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2001 Ford Excursion based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The Ford Excursion is known for intermittent rough idling, which may be accompanied by illumination of the check engine light, and poor fuel mileage.
This may be caused by the EGR sensor sticking, causing the EGR valve to stay slightly open, and diagnostic testing must be conducted.
The EGR valve and sensor must be replaced together to correct this concern.
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 high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.
One or more of the door locks may become inoperative due to resistance in the circuit. In some cases, replacement of all actuators will be required to correct this issue.
