Question about 1991 Ford Explorer
My 1991 explorers 4wd doesnt always work...what would cause this? the previous owner replaced the bearings in the back driver side wheel...that couldnt have caused the problem right?
No, mostlikely its the "transfer case actuator motor" failing to engage the 4WD mode. its located on the outside of the transfer case @ the back of the unit and mount by 2 or 3 screws usually. You may need to replace it, but if you up to it, call a few trans. shops to see if they can test it if you were to remove it and bring the motor to them for testing. Its an electric motor that in most cases auto parts stores WONT take back for return if that doesnt solve the problem, thats why i recommend talking to a trans shop about having yours tested 1st.
