Yes based on this you may have a problem in the transfer case or a broken output shaft from the transmission, tear it down and inspect it.

SOURCE: 1992 ford explorer not shifting right

ok... there is a problem with these sorts of things. sometimes the clutch will ge a condition called clutch dust. and its caused by grinding and hard shifting. sometimes poor alignment. take your vechile to a tranny shop and have them do an inspection on your clutch.

SOURCE: transmission/ transfer case

As funny as it may sound in alot of instances it must be reset. try turning the key on and off about 60 -70 times. seems rough on the starter but has worked for me in the past. not sure if it works on fords but works well on all mopars.

1996 Ford Explorer front end makes noises after putting it in 4wd lo and red lining the engine, whats wrong with it?


You have to be in park or be in drive or moving slowly to
engage 4 wd

You can not have the trans in neutral to use 4wd or have the
transfer in neutral to shift trans

Either combo you grind gears in trans or transfer

i would seriously inspect the neutral safety switch connector located on the side of the trans also make sure you have good clean connections at the starter lots of times this is damaged during trans removal but not usually when transfer case is removed but working in that area anything is possible and it seems to have developed after the recent service one quick test to see if the neutral switch is out of adjustment is try to start it in all gears it should start in neutral and park only. try holding the key in the start position and slowly move the shifter through all gears

I would suspect the transmission has failed not the transfer case. Have Aamco diagnose it, they do this for free in most cases.

My 2002 2500HD 4x4 front axle not engaging


Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.

1995 k1500 suburban will shift into 4 wheel drive but then it jumps or bucks as you start to accelrate acts as if though it is not fully engaged. afraid it may damaged gears. any ideas?


My 95 did the same thing and it ended up being the Transfer case itself there was a missing tooth on a gear inside there.Jack the vehicle up and put it on stands remove the front drive line then spin each of the front tires if you don't hear any noise there then start working your way to the T-case,block the rear wheels very good and set the parking break put the vehicle in neutral and try to spin the output flange to the front axle listen for noises,if still nothing put the rear up on stands also and put it in 4wheel drive and trans in neutral spin rear drive line by hand and listen hopefully that helps to get you started in the right direction

We have an 87 4Runner. We replaced the turbo 4cyl


It should only start in P and N. Is this a 4 wheel drive? Check the transfer case if it is. If not check to make sure torque converter bolts were put in. If they weren't it won't do anything.

1999 EXPLORER,WONT GO INTO REVERSE ONLY PARK AND DRIVE,


If it acts like neutral in reverse, the low/rev band is likely broken. I've seen it before. If everything is good forward. Pulling trans is the only way to fix it

2002 explorer will not go into gears except park


This must be a 4X4?
Problem is in the transfer case since speedo is reading(this means outputshaft in trans is turning).

if the speedo still works then it will need a spedo unit if the speedo doesn't work it is either the cable or the gear in the trans to check the cable unthread from trans and attach a drill to the cable innereds spin the drill if the speedo does not move replace the speedo cable

Place the trans in nuetral then put the transfer case in 2HI.
when you drive on the road always have the transfer case in 2HI UNLESS you have a transfer case that has an alltime 4WD option
