Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I am having problems with my 2000 Mercury Mountaineer front differential. I removed the front drive shaft to see if I could just resort to having rear wheel drive, but that was not the case. My front wheel will not move at all because of the damaged shown which is what I figure out. Need opinion or expertise to enlightened me on my options that I believe I do know already, but seek a second opinion. Thanks to whom ever may respond!!

How a bad drive shelf will act and my 2003 mercury mountaineer and its jumping like it wants to cut off

Don't quite under stand the question. Bad drive shelf? Shaft maybe? A shaft will cause vibration when going bad. But won't act like it will shut the vehicle off. If it is jumping when turning corners, it is the transfer case. Remove the front drive shaft to get rid of the jumping, until you can fix the T case. If you don't, it will destroy the front differential also.

Can I Drive my 2000 Mercury Mountaineer all wheel drive 5.0 liter SUV. without the front drive shaft, can I remove it and still drive it for a week or could this damage the transfer case

it is all wheel drive so realistically the answer is ---no
However if you have a center diff lock switch to make it 4wd then --yes -- you can as that will lock up the diff in the transfer case
Will it damage the transfer case ---no--as there is no front drive shaft( you took it out) to cause a torque wind up problem in the drive train
AS to the park selection -- that is a physical connection of a pall in a ring gear in the transmission and the park action would be the same as in a 2wd vehicle
remember that is a requirement by law to engage the park brake and not to rely on the park selection of the transmission

remove the brake caliper and rotor then undo the axle nut and disconnect the lower ball joint and separate from the spindle assembly. pull the outer cv joint out from the spindle and pull out the half shaft. you may have to remove the speedometer drive gear before removing the half shaft. installation in reverse order.

Front differential broke in my 2003 mercury mountaineer v8 how much to fix

Depends I had a whole new used one put in for 1300...I had the front diff replaced 2x and the front driveshaft 2x a Drive shaft by shaftmaster is about 340. Some type of frame tweakage that throes it off. Always make sure you have the same tread on your Mountaineer if you have AWD.
