Failure Date: 08/12/2005

While driving on the highway with my family my 6 year old Ford Expedition blew a spark plug right out of the head. It has come to my attention that this is an on going problem with this vehicle. We had been driving for about 5 hours coming home from a family vacation when this occurred in new jersey. We were lucky in this case because we were able to make it across the highway and off the road. The problem completely destroyed the head on the left side of the engine and the vehicle was unusable for over two weeks while the local Ford dealer worked on the problem. That head had to be replaced as well as many other parts associated with this problem. The dealer stated that this could happen again with the head on the right side. Between the repairs to the engine and the rental car for the time of repair, this was a very expensive (5000 $) problem. Which I stated earlier appears to be an ongoing problem with this motor.

car   Gasoline Engine problem 5
Failure Date: 05/06/2004

While driving to myrtle beach I heard a loud bang under the hood. I had the truck towed to a Ford dealer where they told me the spark plug blew out of the cylinder head. I have read many complaints about this issue on the internet. I feel this is a safety issue due to the strong smell of gasoline when this happens. Ford said they will do nothing and it will cost me 3600. 00 to fix this. Who says even after replacing the head it wont happen again and again. I am disgusted with the whole thing. I think Ford should step up to the plate and fix this problem.

Failure Date: 12/23/2003

I have a 1999 Ford Expedition 5. 4l engine, while drivung the vehicle one of the spark plugs blew out. I contacted Ford motor about the problem and they said there is nothing they can do. After doing some research, I found that alot of people have complained about the same problem. Ford motor knows they have a problem with this engine but woun't admit it. I think it is a big safety problem and Ford sure realize it . If you could do anything for me and unknown amount of other people that purchased this piece of junk please email me thanks.
