problem #5

Aug 272015

Expedition XLS 4.6L Windsor

  • Automatic transmission
  • 185,000 miles


Valve Rockers cracked and fell off all on drivers side intake lifters only. Cam chain tension guide is inferior in design and should have been made of a stronger composite material. This problem is well know around the mechanics break rooms. You caution they can tell you it is a blown motor, when its simple replacement parts and some engine dismantling. Ford knows this problem exists. They just won't stand up and fix it..

problem #1

Oct 022009

Expedition 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles

My 2001 Ford Expedition started making a clicking/knocking sound from the engine compartment. I have never had any oil problems, no oil leaks, etc. I checked for any loose items...nothing found. When the vehicle is driven the sound gets louder when accelerating. I suspect that a rod may be bad but the engine runs great, good power still, etc. The vehicle has 104K miles on it. Are there any checks I can perform to determine what may be the problem? It doesn't make sense that the rod/rods may be knocking when there has never been any oil problems with the vehicle. Please provide advice/assistance....send suggestions to my email: donald.fisher@us.army.mil
