Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

1996 AWD Ford Explorer wheels locked up while driving. No noise no indication, took a left and the car jerked as if the brake was stuck on. The entire front end is all brand new ball joints new also. Car won't move but if it's in neutral I can push it fine. Tranny shifts fine. Maybe the transfer case? Can a u-joint freeze?

2004 Ford Explorer AWD. what could be wrong? abs light is on, 4 wheel drive ligh is flashing, truck is stuck in 4 wheel drive


Sounds like you have an electronic shift diff to put it in 2 or 4 wheel drive. You could have a bad position sensor, or shift motor/linkage problem. Unfortunately, unless you have the diagnostic tool to see which is the problem, it is best to take it too a good tranny shop.

the brakes have not been set properly. may be something stopping the pistons going back in. failing that the disc's are bent, can happen when over braking down hills etc. you would need the alinement checking.

My 97 explorer has a vibration in the frontend like its in 4x drive but i can feel it engage and disengage


Does dash indicate whether it's in 2 wheel, 4 hi,or 4 low?It sounds like it might be in 4 wheel low.With the car running in Park, try turning dash knob from 2 wheel to 4 wheel low and then back to 2 wheel..now depress the brake pedal. Instructions to to do this are usually on the driver's side sun visor.

1998 ford explorer awd make niose left front wheel, and when all 4 wheels are off the floor and in drive, left wheel apears to ingage and disingage from having power to it


Having owned a trans shop years ago,I would suggest you never engage the front wheels on a 4x4 or all wheel or run any vehicle, off the ground, that has drive axles and cv joints.
You may not have any problems,but without the wheels on the ground, it seems you do.
There is no true 4x4. Only one wheel drives in the front and rear,on any vehicle,except in theory.
Keeping in mind, that most veh have ABS Systems, that control drive and braking systems,your most likely disabling and confusing those systems,when it is off the ground.

turn your wheel all the way left or right, hold it there and make a turn at 15-20 in a parking lot.if you feel the car shake and the front wheels kind of jump then your in 4WD.
