Answer . I'm assuming that you have an automatic transmission. I have a '95 SW wagon with 315,000 km on it and it's going strong. At about 120,00 km, it would hesitate and jerk, particularly in reverse. A new valve 'pack' had to be put in and the car has been problem free ever since. Make sure t…he engine is tuned and at the right rpm, as a high idle could cause a problem also (this happened to me). I suggest finding a good general mechanic and a transmission specialist as soon as possible to avoid damage to the transmission. I change the fluid more often than called for and drive smoothly and this seems to help prevent premature failure.\n . My 2003 Saturn Ion was jerking violently on take off. Turned out to be a transmission\n sensor that needed replacing.. Answer . \nThe engine idle is not adjustable. If you have a high idle, check for a vacuum leak of take it to a trusted shop. (MORE)
Answer . It's the Torque Converter. Some symptoms also include a surge when you place the Van into Drive.\n. \nUsually when the Torque Converter goes, so does the transmission since it causes internal damage.\n. \nYou will need to decide if you want to have a shop fix the Torque converter, have… it overhauled or get a new transmission. Check prices with your local Transmission shop and call Ford about a new transmission. A new Ford Transmission will cost you under $1900 and you will get a better warranty then you'll find at AAMCO and Cottman. Sometimes it will cost you in excess of $2500 for shops like AAMCO and Cottman to rebuild your transmission and even in my case, it wasn't done right the first time.. Answer . To avoid Transmission problems on Ford Windstars, install a transmission cooler. It ties in on the lower return line entering the transmission on Driver's side. Very easy to install, and cost = $80. The transmission is poorly cooled, and will fail... (MORE)
Is the transmission shot if the overdrive light flashes in Ford Mystique and the transmissions jerks sometimes between 2nd and 3rd gear?
Answer . \nNot necessarily, but continued driving may lead you there if it isn't fixed. It may be in the transmission control system that is causing the ill behavior.\nPukenstein@aol.com
Answer . \nIt is located on the first portion of the air intake. If you look under the first piece in the chain leading up to the air intake, you will see the wire that connects underneath the sensor. \n. \nYou will have to take it all apart, but really easy to fix.
What causes the number 45 fuse to blow when you hit a hard bump or sometimes just by putting it in gear on a 2002 Ford Excursion?
Answer 1 It really doesn't matter what the fuse number is. Any time a fuse "blows," it blows for only one of two reasons: 1. It is defective or, 2. A short has occured in the wiring of the circuit which that fuse was intended to protect. If replacement fuses continue to blow, that is a sure si…gn there is a short circuit. The fact that the fuse blowing [or short] occurs only when there is jarring to the vehicle due to a bump, or movement of gear selector, suggests that the short is not there all the time, and is therefore what is refered to as an "INTERMITTENT" short. To find the short, determine what circuit is related to that fuse, and then trace the wiring from the fuse to the end(s) of the circuit. You will be looking for something like the "hot" wire being in contact with a sharp metal edge, where vibration has caused the insulation on the wire to have been "chaffed" to the point that the bare metal conductor wire has been exposed, and depending on the severity of a jolt, bump or vibration, allowed the energized metal conductor wire to come into contact with the GROUNDED metal. Once the defect has been identified, the fix is to "reinsulate" the wire using a high quality "electrical" tape, or one of the "paint-on" wire insulating compounds. Good luck.j3h. Answer 2 - A personal experience I to had a similar sitiuation in which the two small gauge wires that run over the steering column and down the gear shift which power the overdrive off/tow haul switch rubbed through. I had to remove the plastic housing and cut/splice and heat shrink to repair. (MORE)
It could be that the converter is locked. In order to fix this problem the transmission needs to be taken out and the seals and torque need to be replaced.
What causes a 1995 Ford Windstar LX to go into neutral when you stop and then jerk into gear when you push the accelerator?
Answer - TPS Problem . Sounds like a possible problem with the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). I had the same problem on my '94 Olds. Replaced the TPS and no more problems.
The fuel filter is on the underside of the vehicle on the inside of the left frame rail approximately under the drivers door.
Answer . Simply add fuel to the tank, then cycle the ignition key a few times to forward position without engaging the starter and then it should start fine, assuming that the fuel pump is functioning properly and that the fuel shut off has not been activated. I beleve the fuel shutoff/reset is …behind the front passenger kick panel. (MORE)
Real reason it did not outsell suburban was due to consumer information on the vehicle, it takes time for trends to change. Diesel was just beginning to become mainstream in the earlier days of the Ford Excursion. As time went on, more and more SUV drivers were switching to diesel trucks at a previo…usly unseen rate. The GM suburban has always been the large SUV of choice, in which brand loyalty plays a considerable part. The true demise of the excursion was the 6.0L version diesel, just as people began to learn of the superiority of the 7.3 powerstroke excursion compared to its GM counterpart. Once Ford swithched motors from 7.3L to the 6.0L the stage was set for the excursion's demise. Look or ask around today, OTHING is more desirable than a Ford Excursion 4wd Limited w/7.3L diesel engine. Look at how at its size gets upwards of 22-24mpg on hwy as compared to the plethora of flimsy economyh suv's such as the import or domestic options which do not get better gas mileage even at half the weight/power/safety/towing/comfort/utility (which is the middle of S.U.V.) . Answer . Ford reacted to a changing market by eliminating the Excursion and replacing it with a longer version of the Expedition. The Excursion was outsold by the Chevrolet Suburban even though the Excursion was a superior vehicle in many ways. Including; Optional Diesel engine for increased towing power and better fuel economy. Larger Cabin room, A higher towing capacity and a better reliability rating. An increase in fuel costs and the slowing sales of the Larger SUV caused ford to remove it from it's lineup. It's replacement was an extended version of the Ford Expedition. (MORE)
Open hood. Remove four screws holding top of grille on. Pull lower part of grille out with a little force.
FOR DIESELS=The fuel pump is located on the frame rail on the drivers side of 2002 and newer models for sure. I'm not sure of the exact cut off year though. some older models locate them above the fuel tanks and are a pain to get to. if you slide under the vehicle just behind the drivers door look u…p into the drivers side frame rail on the side of the frame rail that is closer to the center of the vehicle. it is wraped in a black foam boot and it has wires coming from it. you can see the fuel line coming out of either end. One leading back to the tank and one going towards the engine.. fuel pumps on older models is located on top of the fuel tank. You must drop the tank in order to get to it. If yours is 2001 or older It is probably located above the tank. Check to be sure though check the rail like I explained above before removing the fuel tank!. FOR GAS= Check the frame rail. If not, so..sorry it's above the gas tank. Hope this helps, any questions Cory@wingsxtreme.com (MORE)
I was told to check the numbers on the little plate that is attached to the back end of the rear differential..(it's bolted on, btw)...Anyways, the front and the rear diffs should both be the same ratio, I figure.
I have a 2002 Excursion; My horn is located under the battery tray on the passenger side. They are between the fender and the inner apron. To get to them you have to remove the bolts in the plastic wheel liner, plus the plastic pushpins. Pulling this back should revel the horns. They are fastened on…to the inner apron by one no#8 bolt which is located from the battery side of the apron. They have a clip that works similar to a clothes pin, pinch them togather and pull wires free. Good luck (MORE)
The idle control valve needs to be replaced. It's mounted behind the throttle body. Just replaced mine to fix same problem. Cost $65.00 at auto parts store.
If it's like the 2005 Excursion, just peel back the arm rest cover where it swivels and there's one screw holding the whole assembly in.
vehicle speed sensor or threw a plug; common problem look online under recalls and you will see information on it
If you haven't had it serviced every 30,000 miles that may be the reason. I would recommend that you have it service at your local dealership. If the problem persists then you may have them check your shift solenoid.
mi escurcion xlt 2000 cuado menos esperas se queda sin estarear y despues de 30 o 45 minutos vuelve a estarear..
Are you putting it in reverse? Sometimes when the Transmission Fluid is very low, and you have been driving, then stop to put into reverse, the engine will cut off. Ck Trans. Fluid.
If you happen to buy a gas Excursion, it doesn't matter which kind of gas you get, you can even get the lowest grade there. However, if you get the DIESEL FUEL ONLY Excursion, you gotta put the diesel in, but you can use BIO-DIESEL FUEL
Most brake vibration is caused by warped rotors. this can be caused by many things including; General Use, Over heating, and rapid cooling. It is comon on all vehicles. it could also be an indication that the brake pads need to be changed.
I assume you have a diesel excursion. The block heater plug should be tucked away in the front bumper. they are sometimes hard to see, and come from the factory tied up . Some vehicles may not have a block heater from the factory. A dealer can print out a build sheet that will show such things. Use …of a block heater is probably not necessary unless temperatures are single digits or below. Mine starts well as low as -8 without plugging in. If it will not start well at 10 to 15 or above, I would say you have something that needs repair. (MORE)
Mine is slow to start in the morning. It seems to act like it is flooded. All the fuel pressures are in spec. Do I have a bad spark plug? It really is hard to start in the cold. In the summer it starts slow.
For the Ford 6.8 liter V10 gasoline engine : firewall 5 - 10 4 - 9 3 - 8 2 - 7 1 - 6 front of Ford Excursion The spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 6 - 5 - 10 - 2 - 7 - 3 - 8 - 4 - 9 ) It has the Coil On Plug ( C.O.P. ) ignition system with ( 10 ) individual coils

First it is most likely the fuel system. I started my searching after the same problem by replacing all of the fuel filters. Then i checked for a kinked fuel line and found that i had a bad / clogged fuel pickup sock inside the gas tank. As everyone else will tell you good filters are a must. But a …fuel pump that has been on your vehicle for over a hundred thousand miles should be replaced , not checked. Many sending units also develop leaks at the bends where they come out of the tank. It is a pain in the butt to get a couple of freinds to help you pick up the bed of the truck to change these out and put everything back, but why you are at it make sure that you check out the bottom of the gas tank with a flshlight REALLY GOOD to make sure that there is no water or crud in the bottom. If you find any , then you will have to purchase new gas tank hold up straps and take the tank off of the vehicle to flush it out and reinstall it. SHUCKS ! IT MIGHT BE A DIRTY AIR FILTER ! If not that then it will have to go to a TRUSTWORTHY gargage. I used a tree and a chain fall to pick my bed up the third time. The sock LOOKED perfect. Not so! Plugged. The same on my Ford Escort with 150,000 miles, just the fuel pump there. Good Head scratchin' . Tug Type your answer here... (MORE)
2000 Ford Excursion - 7.3 liter diesel. serpentine belt - ( Motorcraft JK8 - 1223AA ) ribbed belt , 8 ribs , circumference. 122 + 3/8 inch
It is basically 5 bolts (10 mm) and a 3/4" breaker bar to relieve the belt tension. Use breaker bar to remove the serpentine belt. at the end of the belt tensioner, there is a hole for the 3/4" to fit in. rotate clockwise. Once belt is removed, remove two bolts in the 5 and 7 oclock position. The o…ther three are on the back of alternator. Then disconnect wires from back of alternator. Reverse process for installation. It's that easy. (MORE)
There is not one. Don't bother with this tank, it is lacking in so many areas. No air recirculation either.
The Excursion is built on an F350 platform; however, with the added weight of the sheet metal it is rated as a 3/4 ton.
There really isn't one anymore. The instrument in the dash is just a stepper motor, which gets a signal from the PCM. You will need an adapter from a tach manufacturer to hook up any kind of aftermarket gauge.
There are ( 2 ) valve covers on the engine in a Ford Excursion V8 engine
when new up to 60k but now u could get one from 6k to 25k
a v10 ford excursion has 425 pounds/feet of torque, although if you add a chip , you'll boost ur horsepower and ur torque will go up to 500. if you do all that stuff to ur ecxursion, you'll porbably get 600-800 pounds of torque

It is located on the passenger side fender. You will notice two bolts protruding from it. One may be covered with rubber.
Behind the dash below and to the left of the steering wheel . Turn the ( 4 ) cover panel " pins ' counterclockwise to remove the cover panel
I actually own one of these, and I think it has a total of six, two on the front doors, two on the rear doors, and two on the panel just behind the the rear doors.
Have the same problem... had it checked out by BMW and they said everything is ok with the shift points... they drove the car with computers
The last model year of the Ford Excursion was 2005 You can get the 2013 Ford Expedition EL in the United States and the Ford Expedition Max in Canada

In general it's best to stick with a local ford dealership. They should have both used and new excursions. Just be sure that you haggle a bit to get the best price.
When looking at a used Ford Excursion, it is critical to keep in mind the specifications of each. What is the engine, the fuel economy and how does that relate to the newness of it? How about the cushier specs -- the interior and exterior? When buying, all must be kept in mind along with how they al…ign with the price. (MORE)
On a 2001 Ford Excursion : The 5.4 liter V8 has the Coil On Plug ( C.O.P. ) ignition system with ( 8 ) individual coils and the 6.8 liter V10 has ( 10 ) individual coils so there isn't a distributor cap
because your transmission is going bad if it is stick let off the clutch slower but if it is automatic then your trans. is going.
I have an '01 diesel Excursion. I go through batteries about 1x per year, but only replaced my alternator 1x in 6 years.
