#27 of 262 transmission problem
Aug 06, 2007 (10:06 pm)
i have a 1998 ford expedition, and i was driving, and the check engine light was blinking. i pulled over, checked my oil, and it was low, i put in 4 quarts of oil in, the truck turned on, was running smooth at idle, but as soon as i put it in gear, it jerked a little. it continued to sputter, shake, as i accelerated, but once i let go of the gas, it ran smooth, the check engine light appeared and stayed on.. i drove it home, but on the way home, every light i was at it tend to sputter and shake as i took off until about 2k rpm's. the engine sounds fine, and i doubt it is the engine. do you think you know what is going on with my car.

#29 of 262 Flashing check engine light.

Check engine lights have nothing to do with any vehicle system other than emissions related items.
The low oil condition was probably not what was causing the light to come on.
A flashing check engine light usually means a very serious condition that could result in damage to the cat.

GREAT! I have a 2007 Limited Exped. Same problems. I told my husband it was hesitating upon acceleration the very first day I drove it. Nope, that is just the larger engine, I was told. I was stopped at a stop sign on an enbankment and when I went to pull out, entire vehicle shut off. Nice huh? Today, sitting at red light, went to accelerate, start jumping like when a belt is slipping on something. Going in shop tonight!! Has anyone gotten a resolution to their transmission issues??

Just for your info, the 2004 and the 2007 Expeditions have different transmissions.
I'm just interested if to know if Johnf had his transmission serviced as required in the manual.

We had the same problem! Let your dealer know there is a TSB out for the transmission. The mechanic at our dealership (after numerous attempts of trying to re-create the problem weren't sucessful) decided to see if there was a TSB issued...and of course there was so he then UPDATED our computer chip software that regulates the tranny...took it home and of course it continued it after we left the dealer...took it back and the tech said they have to try to correct the smaller problem first so then he said the whole chip would have to be replaced...which costs Ford about $1100.00 and now the 2007 Expo runs like a champ...so have your mechanic check that out especially if it is still under warranty...

Thanks so much for your post...saved me TONS of time and aggravation with dealer. Once I said there was a TSB, they knew I was an informed consumer! They performed an upload program into my Expedition EL and so far so good. Transmission tech said that he has seen quite a few of these and only a few require the new part from Ford. My tech said if it continues, the next step will be to replace the part. I'm crossing my fingers!

I was just wanting to know if anyone can tell me if there is a TSB on the 2004 Expediton tranny? I have one that just went out at 40,000 miles. I am not sure about you guys but I am not happy with my ford right now or Ford Motor company for that matter. I guess since people don't die from tranny problems, Ford will never recall them. Help me please.
