When you select 4wd you bring into use a front drive shaft . It may be advisable to check the drive shaft "U" joints for wear and the shaft slip joint for wear. Check the front hubs for proper engagement as they may be 1/2 engaged and jumping in and out of operation

SOURCE: 4wd makes loud noise, also pops out of 4wd

Sounds "used and abused"!!! Likely you have more than one problem. Transfer case may need linkage adjustment or rebuild. Grinding from where? Wherever the noise is, look for a problem. Pulling can be from any number of front end component failures. Your best bet is to give everything a careful inspection or have a reliable shop go over it for you. There are so many variables in this I couldn't possibly give you any real answers!!!
good luck!

Why don't my front tires turn qhen in 4wheel drive


Clicking is a problem. Do you use 4WD often? My rule of thumb is every month put in 4WD and drive for 10-20 miles. Keeps pumps working and lubes internal parts. Sorry, but have always had problems with GM 4WD. Try this in neutral or park turn switch to 4 wheel, wait for the light tho go off or noise to stop. Do the same in AWD then back to 2. Drive a mile or so in 2, then in all other functions. Oh yea also drive in reverse in all modes as well

Loud thumping and whinning noise


It sounds like you have a lot of wear on your ping and pinion gears in the rear end. Ford has a product you can purchase from their parts dept that will help with the noise but eventually you will need to get the gears replaced. The product is a friction modifier designed just for rear ends.

1999 ford explorer limited whining noise in front end


Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

1998 ford explorer 4wd makes a clunking noise when i turn and the 4wd lights flash every 2 min. like it wont go out of 4wd or something?


The clunking noise could be coming from three different areas. Either the front or rear differentials could make that noise along with the transfer case. I would initially be looking at the transfer case as the culprit since you mentioned the 4wd light coming and going. My thinking is that the 4wd engagement solenoid is malfunctioning and trying to bring in the 4wd, then releasing it. The only good way to check the function and noise for this is to put the car on a lift.

Loud clicking noise when 4wd is engaged on left wheel when turnin


Check your cv (constant velocity joint) , It may have a big clearance which is the source of the noise when turning left or right and when 4wd is engage. Juts like front wheel drive cars, if the cv joint is with clearance it will tend to sound in the left or right turns. It is not exactly clicking sound , nmore like knocking sound , low in pitch, but not heavy.
