Try friction stabalizer (motercraft) in your back axel. It smells real bad but easy and cheap to use about $15 for two tubes. Accses the bolt on your back axel with a 3/8 wrench (takes a little strengh) once you get it open you just squeze the stabalizer in. I have 2004 150 lairet was having a bit diffrent of a problem that was caused by gaers sticking together (which may be your problem?)last week when buying out my wifes explorer lease I was able to talk to a very experienced tran. mech. who told me to try this or spend $1500 to have my axel ripped apart and repaired, most of cost labor. This worked for me, the mech. said it would take about 150 miles to work it self through but took my truck about 80 miles good luck to you my ford truk brothers.

My 2005 Ford F-150 was running fine and last week I had to use the four wheel drive a couple of times . Science then when I take off from a stop I gent a loud Chungking noise with a jolt until I get moving...

Something has let loose in the transfer case. Probably bearings. Better get another or have that one fixed. Keep driving it and the case will blow a part. This could damage the transmission also.

My ford explorer 2004 makes a loud banging noise while turning and the 4X4 high light flashes on and off as well as ABS light stays on

One loud bang is usually a ball joint. Jack up one side of car and shake tire to see what is loose. Shake each steering component while the side is lifted. Do both sides of car.

have your cv shat checked or changed, those clunking noise is a sign of "constant velocity"CV joint failure, sometimes the noise stops because it is caused by damaged bearings. you should have it checked or changed before it fails on you, once this happens you will not be able to move your vehicle unless towed.
