Generally speaking, no.
The computers are pre-programed at the factory for each year and engine-trans combo.
Not to say one truck won't run with the other computer, but the check engine light may stay on and performance may suffer.

SOURCE: Strange loud buzzing noise on 1997 Ford Explorer XLT

Only thing that comes to mind with description is maybe heat shield on exhaust, getting loose. Wait until vehicle is cooled off and get under there & check any heat shields you see wrapped around or near exhaust, above it attached to floor of vehicle etc, and give them all a little shake or rap with rubber hammer or similar to see if any rattles are present.

SOURCE: Drain plug for 1998 Ford Explorer auto transmission 4x4

It does not have a drain plug. You have to loosen the bolts that hold the drain pan and let the fluid drain out that way.

My 1997 ford explorer 4x4 when running 30 mph 4by want to kick in when in auto also no reverse on auto or high4x4 only works on low4x4 WHAT CAN IT BE . ?


May be the electronic control of the 4x4 has a problem. Remember that when in auto, the 4x4 wil only hook if necessary. Try going on bad roads to see if it works. The differential should probably work in 4x4. The electric motor for the transfer should also be checked. It is important to see if the cubes of every side at the front axe is lubricated.

On my 1998 Ford Explorer, the 4x4 light flashes on and off sometimes and it won't engage in 4 wheel drive. Do you know what might be wrong? Thanks.


when this light is flashing it means the the actuator for the Transfer case has a problem or the transfer case is locked up, the only way to determine the cause is to remove and test the motor and see if it operates, the electric motor driven actuator is under the truck attached to the transfer case at rear of transmission.

My 1998 ford explorer 4x4 while accelerating has a bumping feel


We had a 1997 Ford Explorer that did something very similar. We thought the transmission was going out, but it was the exhaust manifold gasket. Cost us a couple of hundred at the dealer to get it fixed, but that was a few years ago.
