Check cv/"U" joints in axles and drive lines If you are on hard surface do not engage 4wd as it creates torque wind up in the transmission and diffs and drive lines. It is to only be used on slippery surfaces that allow the wheels to even put the torque wind up by slipping on the surface

SOURCE: Grinding sound in the front end

I had this problem in my 2005 F-150 twice! The first time was covered under the warranty and the second time was out of my pocket! ( close to $500.00!) There is a solodoid u[pp on the firewall that gets water into it then it corrodes the lines and such. Ford dealership replaced 2 valve assemblies, 2 actuator assemblies, and the IWE Solonoid to fix mine. They claim the problem will not come back but that remains to be seen.

SOURCE: 01 f150 4x4 4whell drive will not engage lights on dash come on

I am going to assume that you have auto 4x4, and not manual shift base model.. it just sounds like the servo motor that shifts between 2x4 and 4x4, has gone bad

question:
does it still engage into low range, even though it is stuck in 2x4?

SOURCE: Hello, 1986 Toyota 4X4 Truck

I've seen a similar issue on other transmissions where the shifter slips out of the slots in the shift forks, either due to shifter bushing wear or just general wear on tte trans. It can usually be remedied at least temporarily by popping the shifter top off the trans and resetting the forks all back to nuetral and then reinserting the shifter. It gets jammed when two forks are trying to engage two different gear sets.
On one of the 4x4 sites, they tell you how to replace the shifter bushings, cheap fix if you are lucky.
Good luck.

SOURCE: won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?

If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

Was driving down the road and car didn't want to go.....have no reverse or drive now. haven't had any problems with transmission at all has ran great. fluid is full


Well you have one now. Your transmission pump has given way.If the torque convertor recieves no fluid from the pump it cannot engage the clutch pack and transfer power.

Grinding noises when 4x4 is engaged


Most likely wheel bearing or cv joint issue. look for a ripped open cv boot. I believe that year used cv joints instead of regular u-joints. Hope I helped. Thanks

check the rear differential as well as the transfer case...you may have broken something in both of them...i have seen it happen...since 4low uses a different gear it is possible for it to move in low and not 4 high
