We thought all along it was working until we got hung up 2 weeks ago in a drive way and the front wheels would not move. So maybe your tcc is going bad or also check your gear oil see if it could be low not exactly sure if this could effect it or not, I'm not an expert at second gen. Are there any videos of doing a front diff fluid change out there? A remanufactured case from a reputable company should cost about a thousand bucks. So I pulled back in and said I would come back in the daylight and look at it again. Safari Rack, and 6 Hella off road lights.
They are not hard to install so the additional 400 bucks for the install seems a bit high. She hadn't driven it in forever, but had to take it to run an errand and the noise it was making was horrendous. Is doing that going to get her to Florida? Have you tried any short-longterm use while in the 4X4 position to see if maybe you get a smell of low gear oil or something or to see if it can climb a good embankment without having trouble? Cool, thanks for the video link. As the shift cam assembly turns, it positions the reduction shift fork 7289 for desired transfer case operation. I had the car towed to my mechanic who later confirmed that it was my transfer case that had fallen from the bottom of the car.
If your estimate is at a dealership, get an estimate from a good repair shop. I've read the explanation of how this transfer case works, including looking at the assembly drawing of it. High and low light up on dash board and when put in drive, it makes the thump as though it is in 4 wheel drive. Her ex-boyfriend has taken it to Firestone again and they are still saying new wheel bearings. Lost a brake pad and I had to go fix it for her. She is moving to Florida from Kansas and needs to drive the truck. Anyway, I put the spare on and after a couple of weeks she finally asked me to help her look for some used tires.
Got to thinking about the fact that she still only had 2 decent tires on it, noticing that the rears are going to start showing belts really soon, and decided to measure the tires. I've been reading threads for the last couple of days about the transfer cases in the Explorer. She bought a small car and drove it. The drive sprocket turns the drive chain 7A029 that rotates the front output shaft and the front driveshaft 4602. The bearings were and still are fine.
Remanufacturing is a total different process. She says she did notice that something was weird. The tires were shot and she was always short on money so she just drove it with bald tires for I'm not sure how long. So, a few months goes by, and she tells me that it's gotten really bad. I am assuming the explorer is the same as far as the diffs go.
But it wasn't getting the gas mileage she had hoped for. On the evening of June 7, 2004, as I was driving on 85S, my car began shaking violently. A rebuilt case or a remanufacturered case. Anyway, if you stuck around this long, here's the question. Still fine, but I figure if the truck is making a really bad noise when driving, I should be able to find something.
Initially, all of the service people around thought that it was my transmission that fell out. If she can make it there, the truck can fall into the ocean, as she has transportation available there. Well, of course, she didn't. We went and found 2 tires, but couldn't find a set, so I said that she could do that, but I wouldn't do it for very long. Or does she really need to find a way to fix this thing? I'm not sure what she really hoped for, but whatever. But still doesn't have much money. Also, do you have to use a suction gun through the fill plug on the front diff like on a Ranger? Personally I do not purchase rebuil anything.
Doesn't seem like there is enough room to get the cover off. My mechanic is in the process of creating an estimate for this work. I have also read that this transfer case may or may not allow the vehicle to creep when in park. She needs to find a full set soon. But her ex-boyfriend needed transportation, so being nice, she let him drive the Explorer.
Most often when something is rebuilt it means the item was repaired up to its failure. I'm not sure anymore which information applies to which transfer case anymore, if I ever was. I get there and the key is not at the house, so I can't drive it, but I jack it up and check the wheel bearings again. Am I being taken for a ride??? This allows for the slight difference between the front and rear driveshafts which occurs normally when negotiating a corner on dry pavement. Tonight I went back over and pulled the prop-shaft off and of course the noise went away, confirming that the drivetrain was binding. As I was trying to get out of the way of the traffic, there was a huge boom from my vehicle and the car stopped.
Black Limited, De-badged, Gold 5. When i have it in auto i am used to taking off from an intersection in the snow and moving right away not getting wheel spin but lately it feels like the rear tires only are spinning but when i get into deep snow to test that theory. I think it was broke before the 36000 mile warranty expired. Don't drive it 'til then. I decide to take it around the block to test drive it and I don't even make it out of the driveway. I have a friend who bought a 2000 Eddie Bauer Explorer about a year ago. I do kick it into 4x4 low and 4x4 hi every 2 months or so.
