Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

A rubber line

While under my truck I found a rubber line that has been rubbed into it looks like some kind of transmission line for my 4 wheel drive. I see where it goes to the rear but not towards the front?

It may be a vacuum line so look for a hose from the manifold somewhere.

SOURCE: 2000 F350 Super Duty Will not go into 4 wheel drive

I have recently had this problem with a customer. It seems the 4x4 low will only engage in neutral with the brake applied. And also check fuse. Then select drive and you will feel it lock in. Don't "goose" the fuel when attempting this.

isolate the reason for the dead short that keeps blowing the fuse. Look for a broken wire under body on a actuator or a wire that has rubbed through on the transmission .

Will the weight of 20inche rims hurt the transmission of a 2 wheel drive 2001 VW Passat, and I smell a burning rubber smell in my Passat when I turn the heat on and 15mins later it goes away,what is that...


No, the weight of the wheels isnt the problem. Jack the car up and look at the inside wall of your tires, they are probably rubbing somewhere. On some cars, when you install different rims, you need to buy spacers that go between wheel and the rotor. If you dont, the tires can rub. Sometimes they only rub when turning. See if this is your problem. Hope this helps

When i turn sharp while reversing (out of the drive way) the front end makes a very loud noise, sort of like a rubbing or something grabbing. Also when in 4 HI or 4 Low i can bearly ever turn without the...


if you are turing sharp, your tires may be rubbing. a way to check is turn your tires all the way to one side and look under on both sides and then turn them the other way and do the same thing. while you are looking under the vehicle look for any shiny polished metal. this will be a sign that your tire are rubbing.

As far as your problems with 4hi and 4low, if it happens on dry pavement, that is actually normal. your four wheel drive system is set up to engage to assist with traction. your tire while doing so will be rotating at different speeds as needed to ensure proper traction is achieved.

4 wheel drive will not engage - how do I troubleshoot


The vacuum switch on the transfercase is most likely the problem. If you remove it and the plunger is stuck in, replace it and your 4wd should engage again.

release the traction control if equipt.check to see if the trac control notification light comes on.if not i would check the transmission or have a trusted mechanic look at it.REMEMBER you dont always have to have a transmission rebuilt sometimes its just a clogged filter.

FRONT TIRES AND ENGINE.


Hi,

The tire noise will be due to the car needing a wheel alignment, just take it down to your local tyre dealer and they will check it for you if you are not sure.

As for the burning smell, if it's coming from the engine it could be a simple oil leak leaking onto the exhaust or could be more serious like worn rings or valve guides.

Good luck.

Vacuum lines for 4 wheel drive


if you look under the Jeep on the passenger side of the front axle you will see a vacume mod its kind of round shaped it should have a vacume plug on it wit ha few hoses going into it make sure its plugged in for starters these come off all the time if it looks good here simply follow the lines into the engine compartment and look for broken hose this should get you a fix most of the time, the mod could be defective but not likely.
