#1592 of 1935 Re: BRAKES FAILED 2005 Expedition/ ABS/ADVANCED TRACK [cat3126]
Jul 21, 2006 (7:36 am)
After reading a similar post back in May, I actually tried (in our long driveway) to hit the brake and gas at the same time and could not manage to do it, even with trying several times, I wasn't able to press both at the same time.
I'm sure this isn't the problem, b/c basically the same situation occured inour 2005 Expedition 4 times, in 10,000 miles of me driving it. It has to be a very intermitent problem going on with something in Ford's design, since the rest of the time I drove the vechicle for a year, the brakes were OK.

Jul 29, 2006 (7:59 pm)
Does anyone have the full Technical Service Bulletin for TSB 99243. I want to know if replacing the turn signal/wiper switch lever will correct the problem of the front wipers staying on while in the off position.

#1595 of 1935 horrible acceleration
Jul 30, 2006 (4:37 pm)
my 97 4.6L expy has this problem... difficult to start (like its not getting enough fuel) but when it starts it idles perfectly. if i slowly give it gas, it will rev up all the way like normal, but as soon as i push the pedal quickly it coughs and almost stalls (like it is starving for fuel). when in gear, i can only accelerate by very slowly giving it gas, and it will barely make it up hills. if i floor it , nothing happens it just coughs. converters, muffler, plugs, wires have been replaced. mass airflow sensor, fuel pressure, coils, and fuel filter are all good. all injectors are definetely working, im not sure if maybe they are clogged though? ive ran cleaner through them but no difference. engine code says misfire cyl 3, and one o2 sensor bad, but it has new plugs and idles great. any ideas????
#1596 of 1935 Battery post corrosion & tires
Aug 01, 2006 (10:31 pm)
I have had trouble since I purchased 2004 Expedition. Dealer finally said it was the Michelin tires and Michelin would not do anything. At my want, dealer installed Goodyear Fortera tires, but could not get balance together. Goodyear replaced one tire as out of round, balanced, aligned and sent me on my way, FREE! Just put 3500 m. on them, great tires! Since purchase positive batt. terminal corrodes, finally split, causing intermittant spark. Only cables are in New York or Forida! Anyone else have problem?
#1597 of 1935 Steering Gear Box. . . on 2003 +
Aug 16, 2006 (8:06 pm)
Has anyone else had to have the steering gear box adjusted or replaced on a 2003 + Expedition??? After all the problems I have had with the alignment being redone over and over again, the newly aquired play and squishiness in the steering i found on the internet is the steering gear box. I had the same problem on my Jeep Grand Cherokee.
No Dealer will admit to a serious problem to fix it even though its on warrenty.
Anyone else run into this problem??
#1598 of 1935 Help fast....
Aug 17, 2006 (8:40 pm)
I just joined this forum because I know someone here can help with a disaster I made. I am going on a trip tomorrow and thought I would add some gas treatment but instead I added oil treatment. Can anyone think of something I can do to fix this? Do I need to drain the tank? Can I add something else? Help please....

Just leave it. It will be fine. You can expect maybe a little smoke comming out the exhaust, but it will just be the oil treatment being burned. No problem at all. Enjoy your trip.
#1601 of 1935 4th time slip differential repair..........When does it stop
Aug 22, 2006 (3:44 am)
I have a 2003 Expedition and I have just now (August 21st, 2006) had the 4th repair on the rear axle for the limited slip. I would say about every 9 months I have to have it repaired. Now my Ford dealership is making me pay for the very high price repair. When does it stop? At what point does FORD do something about this? I have 70,000 miles on this car and its been great other than the limited slip. Please help every 17,000 miles I have had to have repaired and its not cheap.
