Question about 1997 Ford Aerostar Extended
I hope you made sure you had adequate fluid in the transaxle before trying to drive it! Did you SEAT the axles into the inner hubs (past a spring clip ring), or did you just slide them in until they stopped moving? Did you TORQUE the outer nuts to spec? There IS a possibility, that if you REMOVE the outer nuts and STRIKE the end of each shaft with a hammer, you MIGHT be able to seat the axles correctly ... assuming you did not do that before reassembling all the outer stuff.

First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.

In order to properly replace a C.V. boot you need to disassemble that side of the wheel assembly and drop the C.V. axle. The new boot(from parts house or Dealership goes right back on. You will need to clean the area really well and get all grit out because this is what damages the axle itself. Repack the boot with C.V. grease and you're on your way. It can be a tough job sometimes so I recommend investing in a repair manual(like Chilton) to ease the process. The parts houses sell what I call cheater boots now and basically it is a shorter term solution. They install by basically wrapping around the old boot area and then screw together. I installed one for a customer once at her request and it lasted about 10,000 miles. When she had more money she had me put the permanent one on. I will say this about these, if you can't do the permanent repair right away for whatever reason it sure can save a C.V. axle from being destroyed - temporarily. Good Luck

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

I ran into this problem, and discovered that i had a faulty front shaft speed sensor. The grinding I had was that the transfer case clutch packs were trying to lock up and engage the front wheel drive. Replacesment of the sensor has not fully rectified the situation though, as it still does it intermittently. It seems to do it at low speed turns and on acceleration. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but it could be. A scan of the computer can tell you if it is the issue though.

Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.
