2003 Ford Expedition XLT 4x4 195,000 miles

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this from a good friend and it has not went
well. She said new tires but I found out they were all
dry rot. I’m a female but still should have looked
and not trusted so much. Also, drove it from
Michigan (where purchased) to Kentucky) barely
made it and had to replace two cylinders on the
motor. Picked it up from shop and oil light came on.
They said all oil lines needed replaced and needed
brakes ($1800 quote!!) I could only afford the back
brake line repair where the brake fluid was literally
pouring out. Fixed that, got it back and now it
immediately has a clunky sound coming from the
front end. I’m too afraid to drive it of course. Any
idea what this could be or how serious of a fix it is?
I would like to try to sell it to someone and give
honest information of what is wrong just because I
can’t fix all this stuff and don’t know anything about
vehicles and it has cost me too much. I also had to
replace the front window that was cracked that I
didn’t know until I got there to pick the car up. Any
advise on what the clunk might be would be
appreciated. It does it every time I try to move it
and also made the same clunk sound after it had
sat in my driveway after being turned off when I
thought I should raise the hood and try to see if I
can see something obvious. I couldn’t see anything
that looked broken. It starts right up every time.

You most probably have some worn suspension component. I hope you purchased this vehicle super cheap and is your good friend a friend anymore?
