1997 ford f150 4x4 with MSOF jumps out of 2wd while driving. 4 wheel works fine.


It sounds like you have different size tires on the front than on the back causing the t-case to bind up. If not, your having an engagement/disengagement issue in the t-case or the shift actuator for the t-case

I am hearing a grinding noise when turning the ignition on my 2005 dodge ram 1500.Truck is automatic and runs fine when in driving.


Have an auto electrician look at the problem but I suspect that the starter solenoid is starting the armature spinning before the pinion gear is properly engaged in the flywheel teeth. If so the starter can be repaired either by a new solenoid or adjusting the pinion movement before the armature gets power.

Will not start, have replaced battery, Starter, sounds like starter is not engaging.


Does the vehicle crank over? or does it make a grinding sound like the gear isn't contacting. If your hearing a grinding noise chances are the flex plate are missing teeth that the starter engages. Only way to replace that is to remove transmission. If your hearing a clicking noise check to make sure the battery connections are tight and the terminals are clean.

If the noise goes away when you touch the clutch pedal the clutch fork pivot ball is dry and should have been updated to recieve a grease fitting on the bell housing.

The knocking and grinding is not a good sign for the engine itself.

If the starter tries to start a seized engine, it will click and not turnover.

The engine may have to be overhauled or replaced with another.

1997 dodge ram pu 4x4, when I turn corners or start moving I hear a grinding noise coming from the rear end area. Any idea what would cause this and estimated repair?


most common cause is rear pads sticking (rust) and when you move, it has to break the rust from the rotor,hence the grinding noise.as long as it only does it when you start moving or turn first thing do not worry.....
