Not a problem as much as an answer. Are both wheels rear wheels engaged at all times on my 4x4 87 ranger?


this is a rear wheel drive vehicle and as such the rear wheels are always engaged.when in 4 wheel drive the transfer case in gages and the front differential connects and is engaged.unless the 4 wheel drive is engaged the transfer case just free wheels.

A howling noise in the rear end.


The final drive (diff) could be low or out of oil. Have a look around inside of the rear wheels for any oil leaks. Also ckeck the pinion seal. But get oil into the filler plug before you do anyting else.

I have a 1996 ford ranger how do i put gear oil in my gear box


Im guessing you have a 4x4 well in the rear of the transfer case you will find two plugs that have a square center one is higher than the other the upper one is the fill the bottom is the drain it require u to use the ratchet square drive by itself to remove the plug,now if you are asking about a 2 wheel drive standard transmission its the same thing but located on the side of the transmission,the way to fill it is with a pump container in some cases sold with fluid already in it ask for a pump at the auto parts. hope this helps you..

I have a 1990 Ford Ranger Extended Cab with a M5OD V6 manual Transmission. I really like to know if there is a V8 that will bolt right up with out changing up the motor mounts.


There are no V8s that will bolt right up to your existing drivetrain. The swap would require modification of motor mounts, heater fan box or firewall depending on your motor of choice, a larger capacity radiator, splicing into your existing wiring, a v8 transmission (ie C4 if automatic) and a v8 transfer case if 4x4, and a minimum of a 8.8" ford rear end (preferably a 9" ford rear end)/dana 44 front end to handle the power.

There are many books out there specifically detailing how to swap a v8 into a Ford Ranger. Refer to this site if you are really interested in undertaking this project: http://www.jamesduff.com/broncoII/v8conversion.html

What kind of oil do I put into the transfer case? Is that why the computer keeps saying check 4 wheel drive?


no, DO NOT use gear oil. The transfer case uses the same type of automatic transmission fluid that the transmission uses. Is the display saying "service 4x4 switch"? If so it is common and the 4WD indicator light switch is bad and needs replaced. It's only purpose is to tell the driver info center what 4 wheel drive mode the transfer case is in. This switch will not affect the function of the 4 wheel drive. The correct fluid for the transfer case is +4 automatic transmission fluid.

I have 1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer and i was wondering is their a switch are a plug that you can disconnect the 4-wheel drive in any kind of way


Power for both front and rear come through the transfer case. Even when the front is not engaged, part of the unit still needs to turn to put power to the rear wheels. Therefore, you can't just shut it off. It is possible to remove the transfer case, replace the tailshaft of the transmission and find or have a driveshaft made to convert it to two wheel drive but it likely would be more complicated and expensive than repairing whatever is broken now.

Broken seal


If I understand you correctly, the pumkin came out of the transmisson or rear end. If your lucky shove it back in and make sure it doesn't come out. then check all your fluids including that always forgotten rear end, then the transfer case and transmission. If your lucky you just lost some fluid and there is no real problem.
