Customer Question
warning sound. Pull over to...
My 2004 Ford Expedition 4.6 just dies while driving no warning sound. Pull over to restart the first time it will not start. If I wait a minute it will restart and run maybe a mile or 15 miles who knows runs fine n park. Has 200,000 miles on it. The only probl the dealer found was weak fuel pressure.. I'm confused thanks a lot. Terry

Hi. Does your Expedition fell like it is running out of fuel when it dies? Does it start chugging first? Or is it like you just turn the key off and the engine stops running?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
