#1678 of 1707 1997 Skips on cyl number 6
Jan 02, 2008 (2:17 pm)
It only skips when the engine is at operating temperature and under about 38% load.
It runs fine (does not skip at all) even until its almost at operating temperature.
OBD II says skip on #6. Check engine light only comes up when I really hammer on the gas and the engine is misfiring heavily (scarily!) so I do not like to do this.
I replaced Coil (and boot) #6, spark plug number #6, fuel injector #6. I would think it would be a coil...but it only does it when fully warmed up.
Also, the skipping is very sensitive to throttle. Push the pedal down just .005" more and it does it. Let it off just a hair and it goes away.
I can make it skip at almost any rpm in any gear at any speed. It is load dependant.
Should I just start replacing coils now and be done in a week!??!?! LOL
#1679 of 1707 2003 ford expedition questions
Jan 14, 2008 (8:00 am)
I have two questions on my 2003 ford expediton.
1) i lost ( i think in a car wash) the back side of my driver side mirror. It works fine and seems like the piece i am missing can be just snapped it. I went to national autoparts and they ordered me the wrong part three times( to small). I went to another auto store and they said i have to buy a new mirror. I haven't gone to ford yet because i'm assuming they will charge me to much. Can i get a piece for the this mirror or do i have to get a whole new mirror.
2) I cleaned the dvd player in the car w/ a dvd disk cleaner. Ever since then it doesn't work and says read error. Did i do something w/ the disk cleaner and can i reset the unit somewhere??? I am getting ready to sell the truck in a month or two so now sure if i should fix these things prior . Thanks

Regarding your mirror, you could always try a junk yard or "salvage auto parts" store. I would think they'd have an Expy somewhere on the lot with a mirror you could use.
Can't help you with the DVD. Ours works like a charm, and I've never tried to clean it at all. I assume you've tried various DVDs to make sure it wasn't the DVD that was acting up?
#1681 of 1707 2009 questions

Does anyone have any insight into possible changes for 2009, specifically about the "sync" technology, Sony sound system like in new F150 and the new 6.2 liter "Hurricane" engine?
#1682 of 1707 2008 Expedtition and Rear View Mirror
Mar 01, 2008 (8:02 pm)
My 2008 has cheap black electrical tape visible at the top of the reav view mirror stem. About an inch of it. I thought it was a defect until I saw a showroom model with the same tape. It looks cheap!
Anyone know why this is? Anyone else have a 2008 with same issue?
I senf Ford a picture to try to get an explanation.
#1684 of 1707 electrical problems HELP!!
May 04, 2008 (9:41 pm)
Our 2003 Ford Expedition has a few electrical Gremlins...
1:The 7-8 and 9-0 Keypad buttons will not work anymore.
2:The Truck will not turn over. When the Key is turned to the ON position, it just makes a loud buzzing sound from the Glovebox and it will not even turn over tostart.
3: The interior lights won't turn off. In the Computer screen, it says Door Ajar but all doors are closed. The lights soon go off... Then comes back on!! Eventually goes off and then comes back on and the cycle continues. At night, this becomes very distracting...
4:Rear Driver Window will power down, but not power back up unless pressed from drivers seat.
#1685 of 1707 2003 FORD EXPEDITION
May 08, 2008 (9:31 pm)
My daughter recently purchased a 2003 expedition and after about a week started having electrical problems, the radio going on and off and tonight she couldn't get it to turn all the way off, the locks were going up and down by them selves,the dash lights stayed on with the key in the off position. I was wondering if these vehicles are notorious for electrical problems and maybe where to start looking to find the problem. I went over to her house and removed the negative battery cable for the night but this is not a very good fix,so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. DLM1
#1686 of 1707 2004 Ford Expedition
May 09, 2008 (6:28 am)
I have a 2004 and had a few minor issues when the car was new, Ez Seat would not work intermittently and the interior light would come on and not go off when
driving. The EZ seat was a track problem, maybe motor and their was a ground on the right front window post that may have been needed to be tightened. Anyway, since then No problems. 4 years later and 42k. A fellow that I know has a
2003 with 80k miles and he reported an electrical problem I think the 2003 had
issues that were fixed in the 04 etc. Another owner of a 99 Ford Expedition
that I know has told me that he has had zero issues with his and it has 100k on it
#1687 of 1707 1999 Ford Expedition- Eddie Bauer Windshield Wipers
Jun 24, 2008 (7:16 am)
My windshield wipers work fine when they are on except for the fact the when I turned them off, they'll keep going as if I have them on the first click..maybe a little slower. As long as the car is on, they'll keep going. The only way for me to shut them down is to turn the car off then back on. Anyone have any idea what may be causing this to happen.
This only happens to the windshield wipers in the front but not the ones in the back.
