Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
There a few differnt things to look at.
First look at the univeresal joints make sure they are ok then I would pull the rear differential cover and see if there is any gears broke in it ( a little messy). If you are convienced that it is the transmission take the pan off and see if there are any metal shavings in the pan (messy as well). There is a magnet in the transmission pan that will collect the metal shavings ( note there is also a magnet in the differential for the same purpose). I do not know your skill level of mechanics but, a transmission does take a lot of specialty tools and they are not cheap so I would recommend take it to a transmission shop. If you do it yourself there is no warranty if something happens. Most reputable shops have good warranties. I hope this has helped you and good luck.
