#11 of 30 Air Conditioning problems
Apr 06, 2006 (11:02 am)
I have a 1998 Ford Expedition (Eddie Bauer) and just recently I have been having problems with my air condition. It doesnt blow cold air. It blows fine but there is no cold air. I have gotten the a/c looked and they said the hose was fine, but it was short on freon. I added freon and it was back to normal. However wthin about a month, it is back to not blowing an cold air. It still blows air great but it just hot air. I also noticed that when the a/c gets turned on it makes a noise. It does it until you turn it off. It sounds like a rumbling. It starts for a few seconds and stops for a few seconds. I am not sure what the problem is. All I know is that when it starts blowing hot air, and I take it to get it looked at they always tell me the freon is low. Any advice is greatly appreciated

i have experience this air con problem on our Ford Chateau E-150. Twice we injected freon and it was okay for two weeks but back with no cool air. Culprit was a pin hole freon leak at rubber hose and fitting for the air con system. Refer to a car air con techn and pinpoint the leaking hose.
#13 of 30 Low Idling RPM at 500rpm

We have two 2003 Ford Exped. One has a normal idling of 1000 rpm but the other one has only 500. Usually, the engine stops during heavy traffic w/ the engine on idle mode. We replace spark plugs but didnt work. Anybody who had experienced such trouble? Pls help.

2001 Expedition calls for 5W20. I use Mobil1 Synthetic. Could I use 5W30? It seems to be more readily available and easier to find. Could it hurt to switch?

After removing the caliper bolts, the Chilton manual says you can just lift it away to get to the pads. I can't figure out how to do this .... what's the trick ?? Any help would be appreciated, THANKS

#17 of 30 door ajar light on 2003
Sep 02, 2006 (6:47 pm)
I have a ford exp 2003(eddie bauer). My door ajar warning sign stay on quite often. Now when I insert my key to the ignition, the driver seat either hesitated to move forward to the pre-set position or does not move at all. Does anyone has an idea what might be the issues here before I take it to the dealer? Thanks for your thoughts & suggestions

of course you asked this two months ago, but if you still have the problem spray a little WD40 in each of the latches. They tend to get gunked up. Spray and cycle the doors. It has worked on mine twice in the last 3 years.
#19 of 30 Quick Question
Nov 04, 2006 (8:38 pm)
I am looking at purchasing a new 2006 Expedition Eddie Bauer. It is black exterior. The only thing is I don't like is the trim that Eddie Bauer packages have on the exterior. This one is gold. Would it be difficult to get them to paint it black? How much should I expect them to charge? Thanks!

I'm not sure if it is still an option, but there used to be an EB option for black and red Expeditions that made that trim body colored.
