FORD:
2000-2002 EXPEDITION, F-150

ISSUE:

Some vehicles equipped with the 5.4L-2V engine may exhibit a lack of power condition when operating in ambient temperatures above 38C (100F). This may be caused by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) calibration which retards the ignition timing to prevent detonation when the Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) reaches 60C (140F) or above. This may be more pronounced during stop-and-go driving.

ACTION:

Verify the condition. Reprogram the PCM with the latest calibration and on 2000 and 2001 F-150′s, install body plugs behind Coolant Overflow Bottle if missing. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

For 2000-2002 F-150′s and Expeditions equipped with a 5.4L 2V engine, if a lack of power occurs only when the IAT is above 60C (140F), reprogram the PCM to the latest level calibration listed in this TSB.

For 2000 and 2001 F150′s, install Body Plugs (383181-S and N807093-S) behind the Coolant Overflow Bottle. Refer to Figure 1 for location and plug button installation. These plugs will reduce the engine compartment heat moving into the air cleaner inlet area.

Body Plug Installation

  1. Remove air cleaner inlet. Refer to Section 303-12.
  2. Remove jack handle.
  3. Remove upper radiator sight shield.
  4. Disconnect radiator overflow hose from radiator to degas bottle.
  5. Position degas bottle away from body plug hole area.
  6. Install body plugs in location shown in illustration.
  7. Position back degas bottle Torque to 9 N-m (80 Lb-in).
  8. Connect radiator overflow hose.
  9. Install upper radiator sight shield.
  10. Install jack handle.
  11. Install air cleaner inlet. Refer to Section 303-12.
