Can I Drive my 2000 Mercury Mountaineer all wheel drive 5.0 liter SUV. without the front drive shaft, can I remove it and still drive it for a week or could this damage the transfer case


it is all wheel drive so realistically the answer is ---no
However if you have a center diff lock switch to make it 4wd then --yes -- you can as that will lock up the diff in the transfer case
Will it damage the transfer case ---no--as there is no front drive shaft( you took it out) to cause a torque wind up problem in the drive train
AS to the park selection -- that is a physical connection of a pall in a ring gear in the transmission and the park action would be the same as in a 2wd vehicle
remember that is a requirement by law to engage the park brake and not to rely on the park selection of the transmission

On a 2001 town and country can i remove the rear driveshaft and run it only as a fwd?


yes you can
1. Raise the vehicle.
2. Disconnect the drive shaft to the rear differential.
3. If the drive shaft has a carrier bearing, loosen the bolts securing the bearing to the vehicle frame. Support the bearing so the drive shaft does not fall.
4. Disconnect the drive shaft from the power transfer unit on the transmission. It may be necessary to remove a cover to gain access.
5. Remove the drive shaft from the vehicle carefully so you do not hurt yourself.

Why is my AWD subaru only 2WD?


you will likely need to replace the following:
Duty C Solenoid
Transfer Clutch Pack
Reduction gear
All of these parts are located in the tail end of the 4EAT automatic transmissions. The reduction gear can separate from its hub and damage the above mentioned parts too.

Can a 2005 awd territory be driven on rear tail shaft only


With an AWD vehicle there is a diff in the transfer case that allows different speeds between front and read axles . If you have 4wd button (lever ) that allows the diffs to be locked for slippery /off road conditions then it can be driven with out the front drive shaft if you have it in 4wd. If you do not have that option then without the front drive shaft it will go nowhere.

Transfer case removal


Suzuki Samurai/Sidekick/Tracker 1986-1998 Repair Guide
Transfer Case Assembly - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Samurai Models
Even the 2WD Samurai uses a transfer case. Rather than use a straight line driveshaft from the transmission to the differential, the Samurai leaves the transfer case in place and replaces its internal working with a simple offset gear mechanism, thus keeping 2 of the 3 driveshafts used in the 4WD vehicle.
  1. On 4WD vehicles, remove the transfer case shift lever.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Drain the oil from the transfer case.
  4. Matchmark and remove the driveshafts from the transfer case assembly. Not all of the driveshafts need to be completely removed from the vehicle, just unbolted from the case flanges. In most cases, the shaft or shafts on one side of the transfer case can be repositioned and supported out of the way.
  5. Support the transfer case using a suitable transmission jack.
  6. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the transfer case.
  7. On 4WD vehicles, disconnect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  8. Remove the three mounting bolts and/or nuts securing the transfer case to the chassis, as applicable.
  9. Carefully lower the transfer case from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position and install the transfer case. Tighten the mounting bolts to 159-248 inch lbs. (18-28 Nm) and/or the mounting nuts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (25-34 Nm).
  2. On 4WD vehicles, connect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  3. Connect the speedometer cable to the transfer case.
  4. Properly refill the transfer case with an approved type of gear oil.
  5. Align and install the driveshafts to the transfer case.
  6. On 4WD vehicles, install the transfer case shift lever.
  7. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
Sidekick, Tracker, Sidekick Sport and X-90 Models
On these models the transfer case is bolted to the transmission and takes the place of the 2WD transmission's extension housing. Therefore, transfer case is removed or installed as part of the transmission assembly.

Hope this help (remember rated this and comment).

What do i need to do to convert my c-6 4x4 tranny into a 4x2 tranny


get a 4x2 tranny, and replace the 4x4 tranny and 4x4 transfer case with it, you will also need to remove your front drive shaft, that operates your front FWD, and replace the drive shaft for the rear axel.....

Find a good Salvage yard and see about trading parts to convert to 4x2

The only real differences between AWD and FWD are the transmission, rear axle and the driveshaft that connects them. There may be a different ECM for for engine tuning, but replacing the transmission and rear axle with FWD parts will accomplish what you want to do (transmission for your engine size). This is a big job, not for a DIY tune-up guy. If you just don't want AWD, remove the drive shaft to the rear axle.
