- the contact owns a 1999 Ford Expedition. The contact stated that intermittently the vehicle stalls without any prior warnings. In 2004, a technician concluded that the engine compressor strips the spark plug thread, which causes the plugs to eject. He then replaced the engine head, and ecm at an expense of $2,200. 00. The failure resurfaced so he took the vehicle back to a repair facility. A mechanic replaced the spark plug wires with a special thread, at an expense of $1,600. 00. The manufacturer was notified.

car   Car Stall problem 8
Failure Date: 08/12/1999

This is a replacement vehicle from Ford for my 1999 Ford Expedition. The replacement vehicle has many of the same problems. The stalling when accelerating in an intersection is a serious safety problem. We we're nearly t- boned. Ford sometimes admits that they are aware of the problems and then at times will deny them. Please investigate.

car   Car Stall problem 9
Failure Date: 08/06/1999

While turning vehicle on there was stalling. Consumer cut the vehicle off to restart, and engine revved. Vehicle was driven straight to the shop after the first episode, and it stalled all the way there.

car   Car Stall problem 10
Failure Date: 07/01/1999

At 3000 miles the engine was replaced due to a knock in the engine. At 11,000 miles there was a severe vibration in the drive train at 65 mph with the vechile under load - Ford couldn't identify the problem and had no fix. At 12,500 miles the torque converter failed resulting in the vechile stalling at stops. The torque converter and transmission were replaced. This reduced the vibration but did not eliminate it. Again Ford tried several times but could not identify and correct the problem. At 21,000 miles the vechile lost all power and would only move by reving the engine (like severe clutch slippage on a manual transmission). Ford is presently investigating. Both failures could have resulted in severe accidents if the driving conditions had been slightly different at the time of the failures. The problem appears to me to be in the computer constrol system for the transmission resulting in possibly the second failre of the transmission.
