Driving home yesterday and the engine just shut off, put it in neutral and started it back up. Running ok since. Anyone had this? Have any ideas?

2002 Expedition Eddie Bauer, 5.4L engine.

Yup! I had this issue about a year ago. I searched high and low to find the answer. The vehicle would be driving then just shut off. Sometimes it would start right back up, other times it would take a few minutes.

I checked electrical, fuses, gas pressure, pump - everything. Turns out, there was a short in my starter - it also just happened to by my ORIGINAL starter(185K miles), with just a solenoid replacement in 2003.

Check your starter and the power lines running up to it....bet you that is the problem.

Oh, by the way, 1999 Expedition. Bought it in 2001 with 29k miles on it. I am pushing 190K right now. I have fixed every problem that has ever come up on it.

Let me know how it turns out.
