Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps

did you seat the torque converter IN THE TRANS before installing the tranny? If not you broke the pump in the tranny. Also DO NOT tip a used tranny upsidedown it sends all the clutch and band debres into valve body. I hope this helps CJ

96 explorer disengages 4wh low but does not engage 2wheel

Does it shift to 4wd high range ? If so then shift to 2wd . What is going on here is the transfer case motor is stopping due to the motor position sensor has gone bad which means that you replace the transfer case motor assembly. But if you wish to make it a 2wd for awhile then remove motor and manually turn shaft . This can be done by raising and supporting rear axle truck in park remove motor turn shaft slowly with pliers and rotating the play in drive shaft. There are stamped markings on back of case showing gear positions..

04 tahoe z71 the allwheel drive,2wheel drive,and 4hi,4lo buttons don't alwas work sometimes it's in 2wheel drive then go to 4lo and when i push the 2wheel button it just blinks and the 4lo button stays on...

Pulling code's from the 4X4 control module would point to a diagnostic procedure . Do you own a professional type scan tool that can read DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the 4X4 control module ? Autozone , advance etc.... can not read these code's .
Which transfercase does it have ?
Transfer Case - BW 4482-NR4
Transfer Case - NVG 246-NP8

How many buttons for 4X4 three or four ?
The BW 4482 transfer case features a 3-button shift control switch located on the instrument panel
The NVG 246 EAU transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel
When the ignition key is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module monitors the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/range position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position will begin flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/range position. The lamp will continue to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/range position has been reached, or has been engaged. Once the new mode/range position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position will remain ON constantly.The 4X4 system with four button shift control can set a number of DTC'S
DTC B0790
DTC B2725
DTC C0300
DTC C0305
DTC C0306
DTC C0321
DTC C0327
DTC C0359
DTC C0374
DTC C0379
DTC C0550
The three button switch can also set an store a few codes
DTC B0790
DTC B2725
DTC C0306
DTC C0327
DTC C0329
DTC C0359
DTC C0550
Without knowing if any of these DTC'S are stored can't suggest any type of repair .

Truck is stuck in 4wd low how do i get it out? it is a 2004f-150

This will require the help of a assistance. With the engine turned off, set parking brake . Have your assistance turn the key to the on position (motor off) and turn the 4 wheel drive switch to 2 wheel,next apply brakes and shift vehicle into neutral. While your assistance continues to hold brake petal on crawl under your truck and locate the transfer case. on the back side of the transfer case there is a electric motor, using a hammer moderately rap on shift motor (ON the area of the motor its self) If you now hear it shifting and it shifts back to 2wheel drive your transfer case motor needs replaced. thanks for using fix ya

Trying to find way to fill transmission fluid

To change the fluid in the transfer case you must go under neath the vehicle ,on the side of the transfer case you will see a nut on the side ...that's is where you fill it ...on the bottom or some times on the side you will see another nut to empty it ...I recommend putting transfer case oil synthetic ....if you ever go through a lot of water while 4 wheeling,i recommend changing the fluid in your transfer case as soon as you can ...also check your rear end to see if there is water in resovle problem ...add a longer hose ,so it will not take on any water ,hope this was help full
