I have 2 2003 expeditions and one of them had the same problem. My mechanic found a bad fuse box. The fuel pump relay is permanently attached to the fuse box. So the relay would loose connection and stall. After he replaced the fuse box it never had a problem with it again.

Thank you for your response! I will suggest the next mechanic check that out. It is frustrating taking it in and they can't find anything wrong. They are kind of at a loss at this point.
