The firewall heater hose connectors in the area of the #4 coil pack on many Expedition with the 5.4L V-8 will leak hot coolant on the #4 cylinder coil pack. This will lead to the failure of this coil pack. Failure of this coil pack causes a severve engine miss and loss of performance. Failure on highway can make vehicle unsafe. Ford is aware of the problem but is not provding a permanent fix.

problem #1

Expedition 4WD

The complete engine failure occured gradually..the dealer never was able to diagnosis it until coolant in cylinders 1 and 4 caused the vehicle to not start. The control-trac is very disconcerting since the traction control system will not stay in 4 wheel drive when it has been selected to do so. I have turned this vehicle in for servicing for this problem on 8 occasions with no resolution....
