2004 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 132011

Expedition 8-cyl

  • 74,000 miles


2004 Ford Expedition shuts down randomly on highway at speeds of 50- 70 mph. First time Feb 2011, numerous times since. Have managed to get to shoulder of highway each time. No lights come on the dash until the key is turned off. Each time the key can be turned back on and the vehicle starts. It may then run 1 or two miles and shut down again or it may go a week or more before shutting down. Last week it shut down 4 times in 12 miles. On the return trip, it did not shut down at all. The vehicle has been in the shop off and on for 6 weeks, they can find no problem, there are no diagnostic codes. We at first thought it was a fuel pump problem, but fuel pump pressure is perfect. I now think it may be the fail-safe that is shutting the engine down. This is very dangerous when the car shuts down on the interstate hwys in houston. I am now afraid to drive the car. Ford Motor Co should fix this problem, their dealer shops don't have a clue about what to do because the problem does not show up on their equipment. Help!
