Fishhead316, thanks for your reply. I checked all of the wires connected to the firewall and they were all tight. My thinking now is that the fuel pump is on its way out (another site I looked at suggested that the fuel pump could be in it's early stages of dying). How much does it cost to have a mechanic change a fuel pump on a 1999 ford expedition? Or am I wrong on this assumption of the fuel pump being the problem?

A fuel pump problem should be easy to detect with an in-line pressure gauge- you can pick one up at any parts store, and it will be a lot cheaper than paying for one that doesn't need replacing! Like I said though- MY issue was a corroded starter cable- the corrosion was hidden, and it was carrying enough voltage to "click" the solenoid- but the starter wouldn't turn. Is that what's happening with yours?

I have a 2000 ford expedition. All winter it starts just fine, as soon as the weather warms up when I turn it over it acts like it's not getting gas and dies within seconds. I had the "normal" stuff done, fuel line, fuel filter, gas cap, starter and it still is having the same issue. Can anyone help?

I am not sure if it is fixed yet or not. We don't drive the Expedition much, so it may sit for a week or two between short drives and I think that may be a lot of the problem. The last time it happened (about 1 month ago) we let it sit for 2 1/2 hours and then tried it. It failed once and on the second attempt it backfired or coughed twice and then started up. The next day we took it on a 3 hour drive. About 5 times within the first half hour of freeway driving I could sense a very minor shudder or hesitation which seemed to be like a small misfire due to dirt or moisture or something. Then it stopped misfiring and we continued on our trip with no problems. We returned the next day driving 3 hours at freeway speeds and no problems. It has started for us since then, but again I am not convinced it is fixed. I think it is either the fuel pump beginning to fail or some sort of sensor that is going or has gone bad. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Unfortunately not yet =( It happens at the worst time too. I've been all over the net because I don't want to take it to the dealer and have them change $1000 worth of parts and not know what the heck is wrong with it. I can guess for free!

So, has anyone been able to get the issue fixed? Could you please share? So far I have only found things to possibly try, and some stated that it works to start it in neutral when it's warm.

I have a 2000 ford expedition xlt. I moved the truck the other day off the driveway and it was fine, when I got back in it it wouldn't start, it turns over fine, I replaced the camshaft position sensor reset the battery and it was fine. now 5 days later my wife was driving she stopped and did her shopping and when she got back in it, it would turn over but wouldn't start. if I take the negative battery terminal off and leave it for 5 minuites it starts right away. there are no check engine lights on and I don't know what the problem could be, can anyone help
