#15 of 262 2000 Ford Exped - Jerky/shuddering acceleration
Apr 30, 2007 (7:26 am)
My 2000 expedition just started jerking/bucking as I give it the gas. Most noticeable when starting up a hill giving it the gas to maintain current speed. Seems to be a drivetrain issue - not an RPM issue.
I have had a check engine light on for a few weeks. Ran that code and its the EGR and all associated with it. So far have replaced everything associated with the egr - am going to remove EGR & try to "clean" it, reset the computer codes,, and then replace the egr if cleaning doesn't fix check engine problem.
Could the jerking feeling from the trani/drivetrain have anything to do with the egr?? The engine rpm stays stable - no cutout- during acceleration. The vehicle just bucks/shudders ...If I bury the gas (in frustration) the jerking seems to be a bit less.

I just spent 2.5 hours at the dealership negotiating an awesome deal for a 2007 limited expedition with all the bells and whistles. since they didn't have the exact model the dealer took my trade in and gave us a loaner tonight. I drove it 15 miles in to town and then the transmission began to slip. I would be at stop signs and would lay into the accelerator but wouldn't budge an inch. Then as I would cruise and try to accelarte from 20 - 30 the transmission would act as if it was slipping. Really concerned as this is my first time buying a domestic car. Tommorw I thin I am going back tot he dealer and asking for my old car back and drive down to the nissan dealership for an armada.

Yes, We have had the same problem. What did they say was actually wrong with it? All I get is thats the way they are and they can't fix it. No one will even physically check the transmission. They just drive and say oh well. I also have issues with the traction control system. I will be driving down the road and it will go on by itself. Feels like you lost all brake control. Everytime i drive it to the dealer and they can't figure it out. Very frustrated!

My 2007 Ford Expedition EL 4x4 has been having issues with the traction control system. It comes on by itself when its not needed. But if you press the button to activate it nothing happens. It is very startling because it feels like you have lost brake control. Has anyone had this happen?

I purchased my 2005 last year it had about 19,000 miles about a month or two of having it it started making a clunking noise when you brake. So I took it in and of course it wouldn't make the noise. They did check the brakes and all was fine. Two days later the noise was back. This time they heard it. I got my truck back in 2 days. I was told there was some loose bolts and something with the differential. They claim to have fixed the problem. I took my truck back at least three more time to no avail. I got on the Ford website and e-mailed customer service with my problem. They have had my truck for 2 weeks now. I was told it was the sunshell inside the transmission. I have asked several mechanics what a sunshell is and no one seems to know what that is. Has anyone ever heard of a sunshell. For all who lives in California there is a Lemon Law if you take your car back for the same thing at least 4 times. I will be taking advantage of this once my truck is returned because I know that noise will still be there.

My 2005 was returned to me on the 20th and on the 21st it was right back at the dealer. They assured us that everything was fine. The noise was back but louder. I bought a lemon not an expedition. Is anyone having this same problem?

I have had the same problem. It's been in once and they "fixed" it but the problem was back 2 weeks later. I am so frustrated. Am putting the truck back in this week. It's so hard not to have a car so I have put off the return service on my vehicle. What has been your final result?

I have a 2007 EL loaded. First problem was backing my boat into my garage. Slight hill on driveway, engine would lose power and even roll forward a bit...could floor gas, but barely raised RPMs. Later happened backing out of steep driveway at lake...the last was the best. Pulling boat out of water, same thing only forwards...lost power and began to roll backwards INTO THE LAKE...stopped just short of the water going over the bumper. took it in once, no answer, going in Monday..I won't bring it home without something being fixed..assuming transmission....anyone else??
