Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Truck makes a grinding noise, on drivers side. I think it could be the transmission.
You should check the drivers side wheel bearings and front axle shaft its very common in these trucks

Yes sounds like the valve body is sticking and possibly a shift solenoid

get the truck where you can service it and have a transmission service done this will include: new fluid and transmission filter
because it sounds as if it has not been changed in awhile open the hood and if the transmission fluid smells cooked change it right away

Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.

Is your tyre's all the same size. Incorrect tyre's will change the racio from back to front and both driveshaft's are'nt turning at the same speed then it will grind. When trying to take it out of 4WD their will be preasure on the driveshaft's and this will leave if hard to disengage. Put it in 4WD drive it forward try the gearshift if it's hard to move then reverce a bit and try again it should come out easily. For all 4WD systems it is recumended thet the vehicle is reversed a few mitre's tto fully disengage the 4WD

My 1995 ford f150 doing it, i believe, either because of a loose plug on the transmission and/or vaccum leak, but very annoying. I dont think the transmission itself is bad because when the overdrive is not flashing it works perfect. going to have the electrical plugs and vaccum hoses looked at. The container in the engine that holds gas vapor may have something to do with the conditions that control this particular models transmission response, I.E. "kick down".
