SOURCE: awd 97 ford explorer grinding noise going forward

I ran into this problem, and discovered that i had a faulty front shaft speed sensor. The grinding I had was that the transfer case clutch packs were trying to lock up and engage the front wheel drive. Replacesment of the sensor has not fully rectified the situation though, as it still does it intermittently. It seems to do it at low speed turns and on acceleration. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but it could be. A scan of the computer can tell you if it is the issue though.

explorers have an issue with the transfer case if this is a awd version it has a viscus fluid coupling that can slip and allow the vehicle to
roll away slowly find a steep hill and put it in park no e-brake and see if it slips down the hill on the automatic 4-wheel drive system the systen can also slip but it works different their is a mechanical connection to the transmission then it would most likely be the parking prowl

Right front wheel will not roll and makes a scraping noise


It sounds like the brake is locked up and not releasing when you let off the brake. The rubber brake line can be collapsed not letting the pressure off or there can be a rough spot in the caliper not letting it release. If you can release the pressure by opening the bleeder valve then the hose is probably the problem.

park on level ground engage emergeny brake and chock wheels
locate transmission cable at trans linkage on side of trans. loosen the
cable clamp push cable+linkage arm all the way into the park posistion
tighten the cable clamp it also helps to have an extra pair of hands up
top to move shift lever so you can inspect it from below also make
sure linkage arm is not slipping on the shaft that go's into the trans.
if you have to jack it up for extra room please use a JACK STAND.
if you need help locating any of the parts mentioned stop by any
auto parts store and pu a haynes repair manual for your trk. it will
give the step by steps and diagrams for this job + many that may
come up in the future.
hope this helps any other ? gimme a shout good luck

I have a 1999 e-450 that sometimes rolls when its in park.


Your linkage is out of adjustment or worn bushing. There is a series of links and rods that accomplish the changing of gears,(especially with a column shifter). The links sometimes have plastic or nylon bushings. They become worn or broken and allow for maladjustment--not going into gear or park fully.
If it isn't going into park and the linkage is correctly adjusted with no damage, you should suspect internal transmission damage.

If you don't feel comfortable about this repair, a respected shop is your best bet.
