If gas is coming out of the top of the tank and you don't mean the filler tube, You have a bad gasket on the fuel pump. There are several You-Tube videos on replacing the pump. Remember, you are working with gasoline! make sure tank is as empty as possible and work in well ventilated area when you pull the tank. Here is a link to the 1997 Ford Expedition manuals https://www.motorcraftservice.com/OwnerInformation/Get
