    New purchase dilemma...

    I was looking at 2017 models and came across an ad from 3 years ago. I found a better equipped vehicle with 4wd vs 2wd selling for $4K less 3 years ago. Both low mileage vehicles. So the prices are really ramped up perhaps at least $15%. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Antenna / rear camera

    It is obviously the back up camera wiring. Perhaps bad grounding. I don't see how the window tint would affect radio reception, especially when only reversing. Find an automotive electronics shop. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Lack of acceleration

    I had a dragging rear brake I never noticed until I was bringing some big furniture home and had the back hatch open. I started smelling that very familiar smell. In my case I replaced the rear calipers and all of the rubber brake lines. The problem went away. It took a lot of troubleshooting...

    What is the best year Expedition to buy?

    I like the knobs on my 2001. I test drove a 2017 with the base model radio and could not adjust anything on the radio without looking from the road. Not a good way to drive a 6,000 LB missile. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    I am curious, what is the maximum boost one can run on a 4.6 engine without getting into injection mods and custom tuning. Is there a mild option? What performance increase could be expected? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Seat Ghost

    Could be that one of the memory positions was misprogrammed to move the seat to the limit. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Also do you have a driver 1 driver 2 switch to adjust seats and pedals? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Seat Ghost

    I found that the 4 way adjusting knob would get caught on my short pants when I got in and out. Finally the knob popped off and I did not bother to put it back. Is something like seat belt tangling with it? Maybe the switch is not returning to center off? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    A/C Only Works Sitting Still???

    Low Freon pressure? There is a protection switch that cuts out if the low side is too low. Can you put a volt meter on it and go for a drive? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Front Caliper replacement after total brake system failure

    I had my e brake serviced twice when it was actually a rear caliper stuck due to either a piston or the hydraulic hose collapsing. I dont use the e brake much at all here in Florida. Neither time was there any concerning wear or damage. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Extreme Service Delays

    I would be wary of being told they have to tear down the entire tranny to diagnose. No wonder the mechanic is backlogged! I would call Ford Customer Service and get them to agree to pay an outside shop to diagnose. It could something very simple. I would not expect that to be unreasonable. I...

    Front Caliper replacement after total brake system failure

    I have a 2001. About 4 years ago the right rear brake kept dragging and heating the rotor to 900 degrees. I even lost a bearing seal due to heat. I had gone around and around with various shops focusing on the parking brake shoes and sorings. Finally I had my shop replace the caliper and the...

    Fuse/ short issue

    I would start by tracking down where that 30 amp circuit got its feed. In addition to open fuses, Look for any toasted wires nearby. A multimeter with a needle instead of a digital display is easier and more trustworthy device to troubleshoot vehicle electrical systems. It appears the original...

    "Smoke" under pressure under vehicle

    A leak detector or UV light, provided there is UV dye in the system, will show up the leak. Probably best the OP gets it checked before the system runs out and gets contaminated. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    What Is Pulling Power From Battery

    1) The rear wiper can draw excess current with the engine off and still operate normally. It is a problem with the wiper blade parking switch. How do I know? It happened to me and I pulled the rear wiper fuses and no longer have battery problems. 2) The normal parasitic drain is 40 milliampere...

    "Smoke" under pressure under vehicle

    AC Freon venting due to blockage in the evaporator? Or more likely a leak in the high pressure hose at the compressor. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Broke down abroad - alternator?

    Go under the hood and pull the fuses for the rear wiper motor. They have a tendency to fail and drain battery with ignition off. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

    Expedition Max vs standard size

    I am kind or late to the thread. I have a 2001 XLT. What year did the "shorties" appear? Are they shorter than my 2001?

    Rear door won't open from inside

    I have a generation 1 and the passenger side child safety switch drifts on over time and you cannot unlock from inside. Initially the rubber door bumpers had fallen off and needed replacing . New ones improved the problem for a while. I have had the door apart, lube everything and it still...

    Support adding auxiliary condenser fan to 2010 Limited

    An aftermarket windshield washer pump and tank. Maybe truck sized tank. Mist the radiator every minute or two with a timer, just enough to wet it. Add a thermostat to save water at night. Use an anticorrosive additive. Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
