My gages died. Odometer/ gas gage etc. The 5 amp fuse was blown. After repalceing it, it lasts for 10 feet to 33 miles and blows. It was suggested to have the dash pulled and checked. Ater just short of 300 dollars, no luck. Any suggestions?
#4 of 13 Expedition Temp gauge while towing
Jul 03, 2007 (6:08 pm)
I'm not sure why this happens, but when I tow my trailer my engine temp gauge rises to the point of being on hot or overheating. The crazy thing is that the truck is not overheated. the reservoir is full. I know it is definitely related to towing because as I pull up hill the gauge will rise and fall when I'm going down hill. And if I exit off the highway it falls all the way back to normal.
Is there anyway this gauge could be tied to the transmission? If anybody has clue what this could be please help. I'm stumped on this one!

You certainly expect the engine to heat up when you place a heavy load on it - hauling a trailer and driving uphill - because it's doing a LOT more work. It can get a lot hotter without necessarily overheating. I don't see any cause for alarm.

#6 of 13 expedition temp gauge while towing...

I have the exact same problem. I've towed the same trailer for years and never had this issue until recently.I've replaced the clutch fan , thermostat, and had the system flushed and filled with fresh fluid.My mechanic can find no other reason for the overheating. Again it only does it while towing, and after 55 miles per hour. It will hover above normal under 55 then spike quickly when gassing it to get up to the speed limit.I am now going to have the air ride system checked because the check suspension light came on during one overheat situation. Any suggestions appreciated...
#8 of 13 oil change mileage indicator

Since I change my own oil, how do I reset the mileage indicator which shows when the changes are due? It is 2007.

You just repeatedly hit setup until it tells you to hold reset. Then you hold reset.
Or you may have to use the setup button to start the "system check" then when it gets to oil 0% you hold the reset button.
