SOURCE: ford auto locking hubs

you can convert auto to manual hubs warn hubs or milemarker makes good hubs. As far as lift a suspension lift is better. This really depends on what you want to do with truck. I had a 97 f250 diesel 4x4 and put front leving springs on it and new poly spring bushings and was able to clear 35" tires on factory wheels. The best exhaust upgrade is going to be a new down pipe from turbo to exhaust as far as straight pipe or muffler it depends on personal preference

SOURCE: When in auto hubs the 4 wheel drive doesn't work

They are operated by vacuum. Check to make sure the vacuum lines are connected and not ripped or anything. If that checks out fine, remove the vacuum line from the hub and apply vacuum to the hub, if the hubs lock then the problem is in the vacuum line or switch.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive (auto locking hubs) seems to be trying to engage.

I had the same thing happen. The automatic locking hubs are faulty, causing one or both hubs to try to engage or disengage onto the front driveshaft. This makes the clicking noise and loud clunking that you hear. You may notice your steering pulling to one side of the road,because one hub is locked in. Replace the automatic hubs with new ones, do not try to fix the old ones. I liked the
convience of automatic hubs but replaced mine with manual hubs, there just way more reliable.

F250 4X4 MANUAL HUBS WILL NOT ENGAGE ALSO HAVING


im not sure if a 2000 f150 and a 2000 f250 have the exact steering column,but incase it is then check at the base of the column inside and you may see a triangler shape bracket that the shift cable connects to,there will be 2 torque screws holding the bracket to the column,either a t-20 or t-25 not sure,they may be loose so the shifter will be sloppy...my 2000 f150 had that problem and i stumbled upon it,it seems to be a 2000 year issue...about the manual hubs,try locking them in and drive forward and reverse very slow a few times,if they lock in then they are sticky and it takes time for the spring inside to push then together.lock the hubs in first,then after a while shift to 4x4,because if they are just sticky,it may strip the teeth on the lockouts from the axel turning against the inside of the lockout.

1989 isuzu trooper right front wheel clicking and does not engage in 4 wheel drive (when all four wheels are in the air)


Check the automatic locking hub on the right side. BEWARE: You MUST have the appropriate special service tools for this job!!!!!

The vehicle will not engage in 4WD operation when the vehicle is off the ground, as the automatic locking front hubs require front wheel load to engage. When the hubs DO lock, it is normal to hear 2 to 3 soft clicks. Anything after that indicates a problem.

If memory serves, there is a cam bushing behind the plate that will wear out, and if the plate is worn out, the hub clicks and will not engage.

Four wheel drive not engaging


Check the front wheel bearings for play and also while the wheel is off the ground lock the front hubs, grab the axle behind the wheel and see if it is engaged. If not then you will need to take the hub apart and find out what is broken.

Was driving onto a paved access road to beach. put switch in 4 hi about 40 yards from sand , increased speed to about 10 mph heard a sudden bang in front of truck. Truck came out of 4 wheel. 4 wheel lights...


Your automatic locking hubs are broken. Very common on ford trucks. The front hubs are geared with hard nylon gears, and are easily broken. If you replace your front hubs with "warn (name brand)" manual locking hubs, your issue will be resolved, and you won't have that issue again on your truck.

If you replace the hubs with manual locking hubs, you will have to stop, get out of the truck, and manually lock in your hubs every time you want to engage your 4 wheel drive. It beats getting stranded somewhere with no 4x4 at all; like you have now.

If you replace your hubs with the factory automatic locking hubs, the issue will return again in time.
