If you are driving in 4 wheel drive on hard surface then you have drive line torque lock up as there is no centre diff to allow the front and rear wheels to equalise out the torque . 4 wheel drive is for use when on dirt / snow / ice where the differences between the front and back are allowed to slip the tyres . Jack up a rear wheel and allow the torque to dissipate by rotating a wheel . A point from all 4x4 manufacturers is that you NEVER drive in 4 wheel drive unless you are on dirt or ice/snow conditions. You have probably been getting away with it as any bump that lifts a wheel from the road surface will allow the wheel to slip. Even running the tyre on the white painted line on the road or any wet patch on the road will help ease the torque loading

4x4 indicator light on even when not in 4 wheel drive


The sensor for the 4x4 shifter is stuck. Mine does it when there's a lot of snow and ice under the truck. Unplug it, unscrew it and clean it. If that doesn't work replace it.

sounds like transmission damaged. if forward gears are operational, suspect transmission failure. If nothing working ( either in 2 or 4 wheel drive) suspect transmission or transfer case.

I have a 97 mountaineer with no manual. I can't figure out how to engage the all wheel drive and its a blizzard out there. Help!!!


The truck(if it's a 4x4 and not a 2x4)has an automatic setting where the truck is in automatic 4 wheel drive when it's needed. If it becomes to harsh out with deep snow, the you must turn the dash mounted switch to 4x4 high, but do not drive in 4x4 high if the ground it dry. The high 4x4 is intended for deep snow or loose sand and dirt. The switch is on the dash just to the upper left side of your radio. If there is No switch, then you may have the FULL TIME all the time 4x4 type and then it's always in 4x4 mode. Hope that helps...

I have an automatic 4x4 it drives fine but will not reverse. Is this a gearbox problem ar something minor?


i have an 86' trooper and i put it into 4 wheel drive one day and reversed and it got stuck and wouldn't move until i put it back into 2-wheel drive and drove forward

the rule is your not supposed to back up when in 4x4 drive it's bad for the axles so when backing up put it into 2-wheel unless it's a major emergency. it's bad on all 4x4 cars, unless it's an awd car :] hopefully this helped

2WD OR 4WD? To buy or ot to buy!


On the plus side, 2wd gets better gas mileage, is cheaper to operate over time (no 4x4 transfer case or any 4x4 components to wear out or maintain). With a good set of snow tires and weight in the back, winter traction should be ok. The mileage 63k, is good too. If u live in southern New England, as I do, u can probably get by w/out 4x4.
On the negative side, If you have a job that requires u to be there no matter what the weather, and u live where there's a lot of snow, then maybe 4x4 is really necessary. How many days over the last few winters did you REALLY need 4x4? Around here, I'd say maybe 6 days a year. Do you really need it for 6 days?(or however many for your area). It is great to have when u need it, but u have to justify the extra expense for occasional need.
On a personal note, my 1st truck was 2wd, and I hauled a lot of stuff to the dump when I purchased a run down house. After loading up to overflowing, I got stuck in the yard, and had to unload everything to get out. I swore I'd never own a 2wd truck again. But gas was about 45 cents a gallon then, and now, 2 4x4's later, I avoid driving the truck due to gas prices, (I do plow snow, haul firewood, lumber, etc, buts after all this blah blah blah, I probably have u more confused than ever! GOOD LUCK, and let me know what u decide. countrycurt0
