I,m no expert, but here's my experience with my 1999 Navigator. Over the years I have had coils fail and had them replaced to resolve rough running problem. That usually worked. However, at about 167,000 miles it didn't work and dealer said problem was engine needed a valve jib, but that couldn't be done due to aluminum heads. They recommened head replacement at $4K. I had another mechanic I trust check it and got same diagnosis. I checked cost of complete engine replacement with new short block and heads - $8K. I did that at Lincoln dealer because it gave me 3 yr 36,000 mile warranty and who knew if the other head would go bad. I hope this isn't your problem. Ford should be ashamed of putting and engine that unreliable in a $50K + vehicle. Makes it tought ot buy American and not feel like a fool.

The referenced Navigator is now history...LOL I now own a "new" model year 2000 (built last day of July 2000) Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer with 170,000 miles. One owner, a noted surgeon, all options, smells and appears new inside and out. The good doctor had it serviced, oil and filters and safety checked, at the selling dealer every 90 days. He also was picky and at each service noted anything he wanted changed or replaced, like window switches or armrest switch plates which were looking worn, etc. The engine and transmission have never failed in this particular car. It looks, smells, run and drives like a new showroom car. Serial Number 1FMPU18L3YLC4XXXX . I am now a very happy camper!

Hello, I was wondering if you ever solved the issue you had with your starter, my 2000 navi does the same thing occasionally.
#798 of 829 Two Issues with a 2000 navi
Jun 08, 2011 (3:35 pm)
I own a 2000 Navi with just over 170k on it. Chronically throughout that last 5 years of my owning the vehicle, I have noticed an odd grinding noise and vibration coming from what seems to be the front right tire while turning. The noise is infrequent but is definitely not normal. I've taken the vehicle into my local Ford dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong with the vehicle(largely due to the fact that the noise is infrequent), would anyone be able to offer some insight as to what this noise may be stemming from?
Furthermore, I have one more issue that is again, infrequent. From time to time, my navi, when started, make a deafening whining noise and fail to start. When this occurs, I have to retry several times to get the car to start... this again has been looked into by the afore mentioned dealership with little resolve? has anyone had similar problems and would they please offer some insight?

i had a the same problem , apparently im findin out that its not an everyday drivable car , i guess for the first couple of years if its new and your lucky,,
"hummin"a - your suspension and steering wheel assembly " "40 $" might have to be changed , it gives that sound and then one day just locks the steering when it fails completely ,
"thumping" rear ac compresser is faulty and also known to fail.
hope this helped,

I own a 99 Lincoln Navigator, with 248,000 miles on it. It has been in two minor wrecks. I've never spent over 300 bucks on it for anything except brake jobs or tires! Just recently it started to run rough at idle. Above 55 mph the engine runs rough. Do the ignition coils or control modules needs testing?
