I'm researching what a fair price is for a 2001 Excursion limited with a blown V10? Its a one owner who was a grandma that bought it brand new at the local Ford dealership and put 119,000 miles on it before a spark plug shot down into the block and burned a hole in it.

The leather is in great shape from front to back except for some small cracking in the drivers seat (she isn't a big lady). The Michelin tires have 3000 miles on them and brakes were done 19,000 miles ago when she replaced the shocks. Paint is in great shape with no body work needed. No aftermarket parts or accessories to worry about some hack mechanic screwing things up.

Long story short, this car would fall under the "Good" Blue Book value if it had a motor. Let me know what you think or if its even worth buying and replacing the V10.

Never heared about cases like this. A blown fuse every 10 miles... Please update when you find that weak spot. Thanks and good luck in your repair!  Wink

I would recommend Bilstein springs for front. On my Excursion I've also got shocks by Bilstein and I totally love the way these perform. Also I must say I love these suspension pieces for their durability, as once I had KYBs on an F-150 I had before, and a new shock leaked 3 months after the installation. Not sure what kind of springs they offer though.

Brand new to the group, LOVE my Excursion, and am looking for advice.  I bought a 2001 Limited 7.3l earlier this year and want to gain a little ground clearance.  I have a 2" lift now and want to go to a 4" lift.  Which lift kits provide the best results and performance?

I have a 2001 7.3 PS D Limited, What is with the stupid short arm rests? I am not a small person I'm 6 ft. I hate these arm rests Just to save other people the trouble I have tried that plastic piece of crap Arm Rest Buddy (Arm rest Extender) which does not fit Excursions. Has anyone else switched with a longer arm rest? Is there a aftermarket longer arm rest? What is the fix for these stupid soccer mom size arm rests. The engineer who made the arm rests was a elf or a IT desk jockey who never drove a truck ever in his liberal life. LOL

I have a 2000 XLT and I had an issue with it not starting.  All accessory power would come on, truck would crank but not fire.  Instrument cluster was inoperative also with the theft light flashing once every 2 seconds.

Tracked it down to the 10 amp fuse that is for the gauge cluster, and the security transducer.  Replaced the fuse.....GOLD.

Went for a ride and 10 miles in I noticed the gauge cluster was dead and the theft light flashing like before.  Fuse blown.  Replaced again....GOLD.

Another 10 miles......fuse blown.


UPDATE 11-14-16.  After speaking with several Ford mechanics I found one that had just addressed the same issue.  Turns out that the fuse also operates the Overdrive button on the shift lever.  I opened the column and unplugged the OD button from the fine.  Now I just have to find the bad spot or replace the button/ wire.
