rough cost for replacing head gaskets on 6.0 diesel 2003 ford excursion

my passengerside door locks wont work when i use the inside button or remote.

I am fueling the vehicle and my miles to empty reading fluctuates by many miles in only a few hundred yards of actual driving. Can I reset by disconnecting battery or do I actually need service?

Engine looses power at any speed. Generally happens at a cruise but has happend durning acceleration. If you hold the accelerator at the same position the vehical will slow to almost a stop. engine RPM will almost be at idile. To recover simply release the accelerator re-apply power. The problem may reappear in a few seconds to months. It seems to be aggravated by heavy tow loads. Also the instant this power loss happens the glow plug indicater lamp comes on for just a second. all other guages and indicators are normal.

When I put A/C-Heat selector in "off" or "Max A/C" position, within a few minutes of running, the overheat gauge and light come on, indicating overheating. It is not overheating. Has been doing this since new. Original dealer (in Fla) removed thermostat to solve problem (unbeknownst to me). When I moved to colder climate, 3 yrs later I discovered thermo was missing and replaced...since then, problem is back. Two dealers have not found problem.

The truck will start but will turn off as soon as i release the pedal.

The Radio starts changing channels, AM/FM by itself and even goes to CD and back to radio without touching the display - I have replaced the radio and have the same issue. Seems like there is some sort of electrical disturbace - could it be a bad alternator, shorted wire? I have also had the enitre AC display go dark and be unrepsonsive at times as well - not bery often though.

Had 2 front calipers replaced and brakes bled manually on vehicle with 189000k so I'm trying to figure out whether manually bleeding brakes could cause brake failure after
an emergency hard stop.Vehicle was driven over 200 miles since repairs and 6 days later. Could the master cylinder have been too old to handle an emergency stop after new calipers were replaced?

I have a 2001 Ford Excursion with a Triton V-10 engine. Runs great with the following exception. When the engine is warm, it becomes very hard to start. Starts great when cold, runs great all the time. I have replaced the plugs, the injectors, the fuel pressure regulator, the fuel pump (this was the start of the problem). It shows no codes when hooked to the reader. It doesn't like to start until the engine is COLD. Even after 2 hours of sitting, it is still hard to start. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm old school and when I looked for the sparks plugs I chould only find what appeared to be some kind electronic device close to the fuel rail. so the question is where and how do you change out the sprak plugs

Engine runs rough, doesn't seem to have full power, exhaust smells funny, and tail pipe is black.

Any way to check regulator?
Any other thoughts?

is it ok to drive with the selector in lock for the ford-excursion automatic hub locks


will not accelerate

I hear the fan running and get air from the defrost vents but not the dash vents

crankshaft sensor location also camshaft sensor location

After pain stakingly tearing my excursion apart, it has come to my attention that there is a filter inside the line coming from the compressor. This thing gets clogged pretty easily and collects trash from the compressor letting you know that its almost time for a new compressor. You have to have a special tool to get to it, but it finally solved my problem and I wanted to share my results... Good luck and thanks to all who helped.

Where is the expansion valve located.. if it even has one?

what is the normal fuel pressure sometimes at 70 mph it hesitates it has 30 psi

When accelerating the car seems to skip/stutter. It used to only do it on the freeway once in a while. It is more frequent now. The check engine light is on constantly. My husband thinks it's fuel injectors. How can we know for sure? How many are there? By researching on-line, it looks like it's something he could do with little knowledge car repairs?
