Having problems with your 1998 Ford Expedition ?

Why does my 1998 Expedition sound like a helecopter?

\015 Started two days ago, and first was just kind of jerking. Like it wasnt getting gas. When I started going over the bridge, the check engine light started blinking. After I got over the bridge, it went off. Changed plugs, and now it sounds like a helicopter, even when it is just idling. After changing the plugs, it does seem to be jerking less while driving it though.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

I have 2000 Ford Expedition. And July 4th I had to get my boat out of the water and you have to put ithe Expedition in 4lo to pull it out the water. Pulled it out and took it out of 4lo. Did what I had to do to the boat> Giot back into the Expedition and checked to see if it was out of $lo and took off. Went about 50 yards and all of a sudden I heard like a real loud noise. And now it makes a rattling sound every once in a while. And it kinda feels like there is a drag went letting off the brake


The noise you prob heard was the rear brakes. Sometimes when you get them wet they will rattle and or get stuck for a few moments. did you use your emerg brake when pulling the boat on? it could just be the e brake arm or cable rattling. ... Ford Expedition

I have a 2007 Ford Expedition EL I bought used last year. The Air conditioner stopped working last year after making a really funny sound and causing me to pull of the freeway to investigate. After replacing what sounded like everything front and rear (compressor blew and put medal through the lines) it worked again. It just made the same sound yesterday and the AC stopped working again. Is this a common issue with the Expedition? The interesting thing is both times it happened my travel trailer

How to know if my brake booster or my master cyclinder is the problem on 1997 ford expedition? My brakes don't go to the floor when they wanna fail but I hear a sound near my dash where I'm driving, it sounds like a tumbling rumbling sound and they seem like they aren't gonna stop my ford but they do after some distance of trying to stop.It is rather scary cause there is no warning when this is going to happen. I may drive it for 2 days with no problems and then all of a sudden it does this. Hav


If you have drum brakes, check to make sure the wheel cylinders are not leaking, if they are not i would throw a master cylinder in the vehicle because its not the brake booster, all the brake booster does is provide assistance for braking making it ... 1997 Ford Expedition

I need some help to understand what is happening with the a/c of my 1998 Ford Expedition; when it's parked the A/C works perfectly at any level; but when running, when acelerate over 40 miles/hr the A/C sounds like something is obstructing the ducts (air is still there but sound like obstructed); when remove the acceleration the A/C is back; so basically sounds obtructed only when accelerate. Any ideas?....Please advice [email protected]


Yes, this sounds like your heating system may lack vacuum. The system is designed to fail in the defrost mode. Some vehicles shut down ac compressor under heavy acceleration, but you did not mention heavy throttle.\012\012So, look for vac ... 1998 Ford Expedition

I have a 93 Nissan Altima (AT transmission) and while driving my car....sometimes the speed ometer stays on "0" and the RPM goes up while I have my foot on the gas and it sounds like it is stuck in first gear. Then after a minute or so it will shift over and the speed ometer will go to normal and you can hear the gear switch over & the car will also **** a little while it goes into the next gear. Does this sound like it needs a new transmission?


Speedometer failed when the cable is broken; if the gears wont egnage, its possible that you have any propblem in the Torque Converter or Solenoids. First try with mainenance and check fluids. ... 1993 Nissan Altima

2001 Ford Expedition Premium Sound System suddenly stopped sounding premium, I thought I heard something hit the truck when I was on the highway but no marks outside and the stereo suddenly started sounding tinny, like a cheap transitor radio instead of the Big Bass Sound it had before.
