Question about Ford Expedition
My 2000 ford expeditions starter got stuck on the start mode it made an awful grinding noise, they said it was the because the battery was too small, but then all the fuses were blown, the starter was bad the starter cylinode was bad then the ignition switch was bad and now they say the fuel filter isn't working all because of the starter being stuck is this possible?? please help this is costing me a small fortune and is taking weeks to repair
The flywheel could be bad. The flywheel is so big that it will only grind the teeth every so often when it is in that spot. If you are sure that the starter is bad, replace it.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition wont start
On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

I personally would check the fuel pressure. Then I would go back to the coil. I have seen brand new bad coils out of the box. The symptoms of a loss of power point to this component, especially if the car idles well, but loses power when accelerating. Please do not rate this reply - we all are left to grasp at straws since you have changed pretty much everything. Good Luck. Please post the final fix of the problem.

that sounds correct what happens is the starter still tries to engage the flywheel and grinds the teeth off both. Replace switch then worry about starter flywheel if it starts fine don't worry about it you may have saved it if you didn't let it run that way long

maybe you should weigh your options cause probably cheaper to replace that rebuild disconect bat before you remove starter take all wires loose remembering where they go dont mix up and remove 2 or 3 bolts that hold the starter in place then remove and replace in reverse order
