    12V Power Ports Hot?

    Check the port in the center console. I have a flashlight/charger combo plugged in mine and it shows it's charging w/ the engine off and doors locked.

    2018 Navigator getting 6th set of Cam Phasers.

    I’m in a similar position myself. My 2019 has 22K on it and rattles like crazy on startup and got a ‘Powertrain Malfunction/ Reduced Power’ error this morning. (2nd time I got the error recently) No boost at all and felt like it was in limp mode, w/ very little power. Pulled off the...

    How much weight are you towing with a “non” HD Expedition?

    Nothing substantial to add here but I’ll share this. 12 years ago, my father-in-law towed a camper that was rated ~9,500 lbs dry with a 1/2 ton chevy z71 during hunting season. Added to this was 4 adults, 2 full size atvs (inside the camper), hunting gear, gas and water jugs and at least 2...

    List of expensive repairs

    Trashed my passenger side mirror backing out of the garage. (2019 Limited Stealth) Got it replaced today: $1,370. For. A. Mirror. Mirror was $1,240 and $130 for labor. Taught me to be extra judicious when pulling into or backing out of tight spots.

    Dealer forgot to put bolts back!!

    That is disconcerting to say the least. Unless we’re talking warranty work, I’ve always favored taking my rig to a local shop where I can interact with the shop manager and techs and have some history. Too many dealers seem to hire any knucklehead with a set of tools and send them out on...

    Help me choose between Stealth and Platinum

    I've had a 2019 black limited stealth for less than a year and am loving it. One side benefit is vehicles tend to quickly pull aside when you approach from the rear.

    Idle Hours

    Negative, I've had the auto-start/stop eliminator OBDII plug-in for months. Just a personal preference for me, it bothered me having to let off the brake for the engine to restart in anticipation of oncoming traffic. That and the a/c stopping while the engine was wife and kids were...

    My Expedition got a twin!

    Why can’t we just let people do what they want with their money? @Deadman went into way more detail than he could have (and maybe should have) concerning his purchase and his family's livelihood. Can we not just let the man enjoy his new ride and back off a bit?

    Utility trailer question to those w/o tow package

    I have a 6’x14’ utility trailer that I use a few times a year hauling 2,000 lbs max. Is there any benefit for setting up a trailer in the information display for those without the tow package? Reading the Ford Pro Trailer Backup brochure, the trailer blind spot system (BLIS) is interesting but...

    Launch Control

    ^^This. Tried it a few times and it's pretty exhilarating for a big SUV. Left foot on the brake, right foot on the skinny pedal. The brakes start to let go a little below 3K.

    Tinting an expedition with privacy glass

    The guy who tinted my windows (all around w/ 20%) told me the factory embedded window tint didn’t actually block any UV radiation. Said it was more privacy focused rather than keeping it cool.

    Trans or Engine skip

    Odd, my 19 has 7K miles and it's been nothing but silky smooth shifting, whether under hard acceleration or normal operation.
