AnswerJust a chance. I had a 98 that did this randomly. I found out that it was the idle air control valve. I replaced it myself in 20 mins. and saved $400 in labor. I don't know that this will be the case with a 2003, but maybe it will get the ball rolling.

The 2003 expedition is covered free of charge up to 80,000 miles, I know this personally, it happen to me at 79000 miles. they fixed it free of charge still under factory waranty don't let them tell you any different.

its not a recall but ford put out a service bulliten to the dealers, Its called the alternator wireing harness. If you follow the 1 of the two red wires that comes out of your battery one has a long black clip on it that says "fuseable link" just past this clip two smaller wires branch off. a short one that runs towards the front of the truck and a longer one that runs back towards the bottom of the battery, This longer one is resting on a aluminum AC pipe. Where the wire rests on this pipe, flip the wire over and you will see it is worn down to the bare copper threads, Tape it up and tape where it rests on the pipe or go to ford and order a new one, its a 10 min job you can do yourself. The part is under $40bucks

There are many reasons as to why a car may lose power while driving. However, the most likely cause is a bad fuel pump. This causes the car to 'think' that there is not any gas, so it begins to stall, and eventually stalls while driving.

I suspect you have a clogged fuel filter. If you are smelling something that smells like rotten eggs, it is your catilytic convertor.

No it cannot unless alternator is not charging the only power a diesel requires is for fuel cutoff solenoid

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

While driving, the dashboard lights will fall and the car will stall if the vehicle goes dead. This can be caused by a lack of fuel or mechanical failure.

No. A bad starter would cause the car not to start.
