Does the a/c slowly stop cooling, or does the airflow become reduced (or both)?
The system does not use Freon as a refrigerant.
There may be one or more stored trouble codes for the stop-start system.
I agree with your observation about the lack of HVAC control knobs or switches.
On my 2015 Expedtion Limited, the only way to access and adjust the rear HVAC controls from the front seats is to use the touch screen.
It is a VERY stupid design, that requires multiple taps on the screen (up to...
I drove a Tesla Model X Signature Series while in San Francisco for my nephew’s wedding. It had the huge center screen, which was integrated very well into the dash. It was very intuitive and easy to use. I liked it a lot.
The photo of the new dash screen for the Expedition looks awkward -...
Thank you for the links with the numerous photos and information.
I still think the trend towards massive amounts of exterior black trim and wheels makes the vehicle look cheap and like a lower-trim model. I realize the styling trend is to paint everything black and give it a special name...
The state I live in requires that the auto repair facilities not charge more than 10% of the original repair estimate, unless approved by the customer. They must complete the repair as stated for the price quoted (with no more than 10% added, excluding tax).
The law also requires that all...
When you replace the ABS module, the brake fluid must be bled - and the shuttle valves in the module activated to push the fluid through the unit. This requires special dealer equipment. That is probably why the two mechanics did not want to deal with the unit.
You will have to ask the dealer...
Turning off the engine often resets the throttle body, and allows for an engine re start and normal operation. There is a good chance the issue will return (with family on the expressway?).
I would have the throttle body replaced or replace it. Ford...
Is the vehicle under warranty, or did you pay out-of-pocket?
I would return the vehicle to the dealer and insist that it be repaired properly. There has to be one or more stored trouble codes that should point the technician (I use that term loosely) in the right direction.
Did you read your vehicle owner’s manual?
On my 2015, I can temporarily disable the front or rear sensors (when they activate) by pushing a button on the steering wheel controls - based upon the DIC display message.
I don’t know the name of the color for your year - but this web site will provide the information for you: https://classicleatherdye.com/
I bought some interior dye from them for my 2015 Expeddtion (“Dune”) and it matched EXACTLY.

If it were me - I would contact an attorney to take legal action to force Ford (and its authorized service dealer) to repair your vehicle. The will be the escalation point that gets Ford's attention - and will cost them extra for attorney fees.
You should not have to beg or coerce your...
Ford does not recommend anti seize compound on the spark plug threads.
Modern spark plugs are manufactured with a coating on the threads, which enable easy removal from the engine head.
Here is an interesting article regarding the use of anti seize compound on spark plug threads...
