Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a problem and think I've got it narrowed down to the splines in the front axel. A friend said Ford used a hard plastic kind of spline which commonly strips out . I am going to try warren manual lock ins and see how long that lasts. This model of 4wd is one of fords poorest designs and know of several ppl who have experienced the fantasy 4wd effect such as i have. My first 4wd and the damn thing doesn't work. Go Figure huh! LOL

It doesn't surprise me that plastic was used in the 1997 Ford Ranger, as lots of things have gone in that direction especially in the 1990s.
I wish you luck in your repair.

How do i change the rh diff axle seal on a hyundia accent 2002 auto


place the vehicle on a lift (preferred) and remove the RH front wheel. Remove the driver axel retaining nut (1 1/4" nut) and washer. Remove the lower ball joint retaining nut (17mm nut). Using a 10 oz hammer, strike the nuckle where the lower ball joint is attached to it (be careful not to strike the grease boot) while applying downward force on the lower control arm until it pops loose. Once loose, pry down on the lower control are while simultaneously moving the strut to one side untill the joint is clear/away from the knuckle. Now remove the drive axel from the the spline of the hub bearing. Using a pry bar, pop loose the axel from the transmission differential. Installation of the new axel is in reverse order.

2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear


first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.
