1997 Ford Explorer 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 158000 miles
At low speed (mostly parking lots ) while turning there is a grinding/ groaning noise that ends up with a clunking noise as you turn sharper. At the same time it seems that the transfer case engages by itself until I am back on the road and driving 20mph or more then all is well, even when I pull into a parking lot or driveway. After stopping or turning a few times the problem starts again until I 'm on the road again. Seems like all is well while driving straight. This happened once a year, then twice then often, now I just start it and pull out of my driveway and it's back. I've had it to a tranny shop, they said that they got a code that the ignition switch was the problem, took it to a Ford dealer, they said that hubs, bearings, transfer case, etc. All looked okay but I don't think that they really heard the problem as it was only doing it every week or two at that time. My 4wd and 4wd low flashes 6 times on the dash always at any spped but I read on your website that that is a fault code in the drive train control modulepart of problem? THX
have the same problem?
