Question about 1989 Ford F 150
After shifting back to 2wd from 4H, 4wd light goes out but I hear a slight grinding like it has not fully disenganged and front end clunks when slowing to a stop. When turning front end grabs like it is still in 4wd. This has happened in the past and goes away over time until I use it again. What gear should I be in to shift from 2wd to 4wd and back? Park or N?
ASE mechanic here:
check the king pins in the front end and the u joints for any kind of play. sounds like front end play while four wheel drive is engaged and stills is affected for a while when two wheel drive is activated. this year truck most definitely has a manual four wheel linkage that could be the problem too. try lubing up any moving linkage and i would shift it in neutral. keep me posted
