Probably you have a bad encoder motor on the trnasfer case. Try "thepartsladi" on eBay for OEM part, beware aftermarket! Also, make sure the transfer case is using only "blue" GM Auto-Trac II fluid. Change it twice after a week of driving if it is not "blue" fluid when first checking.

When putting my '04 Mountaineer in reverse or drive, with the steering wheel turned, the car fights very hard to move. Driving straight if fine. Any ideas?


Hello, Yes, It sounds like it is in 4 Wheel drive mode. Your vehicle will not make as sharp of a turn when in 4x4. You should be in 2 wheel drive on dry pavement. If you have the other system called All Wheel Drive, yours would be binding when it should not.

Check your Range Selector for the different settings. When in 4x4, the vehicle is made to take gradual turns so you don't flip it on a hill. Sometimes people mistake the Range knob for the Fan Blower switch.

it is difficult to make sharp turns while in 4 wheel drive on a hard surface. If you are able to make sharp turn easily in 2 wheel drive then everything is probably OK. Check your owners manual and review the 4 wheel drive section, there is much to learn.

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.

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.

When making a slow tight turn, the front wheels lock up and push.


This is a common problem on 4x4 trucks and jeeps, it is cause by stress building up on the axels, An easy way to relieve the stress is to drive in reverse for a few yards, this relieves the tention that builds up on 4x4s. I know it sounds crazy stress and tention?? it has to do with the ratio on turning radius, the outside wheel has to travel farther than the inside wheel and this causes stress and tention on the axel/front end.also try and not turn so sharp.you will notice that goes away if you dont turn as sharp...
