#55 of 101 2005 Expedition replaced corroded fuel module
May 22, 2011 (8:43 pm)
I had the relay problem - corroded right through. In January with all the snow and salt, I expect this issue is worse up north. but I got a lot of help and insight from this site. In desperation, tried a hair dryer on the passenger-side electronics against the fire wall and after 20 minutes, LO & BEHOLD it started! Then, like an idiot, I assumed I could drive it to the repair shop, and it died a block away - couldn't restart it, had no access to anything on the street like that. Had to have it towed to the Suburban Ford - our local MI dealership next day - my wife wasn't going to mess with it - it's her business vehicle - only has 45k miles. I talked to the repair chief about what I'd found out about this problem on Edmunds - also told him that I'd read here that there was a scarcity of replacement parts. They were aware of this issue and ran diagnostics - unlike some other posts here, where it took weeks or months to get it fixed, they figured it out and fixed it right away - My Ford dealer went all out, got it done in two days. I have kept the old part (6C2Z-9D372-A module) in case there is a recall on this - I may be able to get my money back. It is my understanding that they mounted the aluminum base of this module right on the steel frame - ideal for electrolysis and corrosion - mine is eaten right through - I'll try including a picture in my next post - see if I can figure out how to do it. Good luck!">
#56 of 101 Update: 2000 Expediton Ed B. 5.4 starting problems

The improvement in starting has held over the weekend but the problem has not gone away entirely. Still, much better. Only a couple of cranks instead of 10. A guy at work suggested a new gas cap could help. My gas cap has been a little loose lately so I'm getting one at lunch. I am also trying the suggestion from our host Steve to
" turning the ignition to ON and letting the fuel pump pressurize the system for 5 or 10 seconds before cranking it? " and it seemed like it worked but I need to test it more.
Also the Ford dealer service manager is the one who last told me to use premium instead of regular. Not that I am suggesting he was entirely trustworthy - he wanted to replace the whole system!
#57 of 101 Four fuel pumps on 07 expedition 6mths
Jun 25, 2011 (7:24 am)
I have had four fuel pumps replaced on my 2007 expedition and was told that when replacing warranty parts they replace with remanufactured parts. The latest pump is new model and the old pump has the electrical wire in the fuel pump coming apart and finally breaking requiring a new pump. I am now on a new pump and hope this fixes the problem but not sure if there this pump will help. Leaving on a long trip next month and it seems the pump last 2 months. I dont have confidence that this is solved but I hope that it is. Owned Fords all my life and have never really had problems. This concerns me. Any help

wow you sound like you know a lot. I just had four fuel pumps replaced and in eight months and told the last one is a new model. they replaced a relay the last time. now say it is a wire inside the pump that is breaking and the pump is dead. but it sounds like something in my car is shorting the pump out. any suggestions would be great and you can email at don_mileticyahoo.com

if the ford service manager told you himself to use premium gas you should of given him a hard time about replacing your fuel pump and filter. you should have raised the question about it being a recall and help us all out.

My 2000 expedition is doing the same thing. Will start great first time starting, but when I turn it off, or go somewhere, it will not start again. Will crank everytime, but no start. No codes come up. Going to have fuel filter replaced, but don't think that is problem because we just had a new one on 2 years ago. Wondering what the final verdict was on Ronny's expediton. What was the fix. Also, does the 2000 expedition have a fuel pump driver module? I couldn't find one. Thank,

Took to a local indy shop, where after some testing showed that the electrical signal was making it back to fuel pump, the pump must be faulty. Replaced fuel pump to the tune of $800 or so. Not a lick of problems since.
Now it's time to replace the pinion seal in the rear end. Anybody tackle that one with a minimum of tools and rear end experience?? Not too sure about the crush collar and all the other goodies supposedly inside.

It looks like most of the problems are with 05 Expeditions. I have a 99 with what appears to be a bad fuel pump. I have a fuel pump relay in the underhood fuse box that is OK. As far as I know I don't have one in the underdash fuse box. There is none noted on the fuse/relay diagram. My car would not start, but if you gave it a squirt of starting fluid it would take right off and run fine. this happened about 3 times in a month and then it would not start at all. I opened up the injection line at the fuel rail and there was no residual pressure. Not gas comes out when I turn on the key or turn the engine over with the starter. Sounds like a fuel pump to me. However, when I started looking for one, I found different part numbers for the 4.6 liter engine with std suspension, another number is it has auto adjusting (air leveling) suspension and yet another number for 4WD. I have the 5.4 liter engine with 4WD and 4 wheel auto leveling air suspension. Does it make a difference which fuel pump I use?
Any other ideas? thanks
