Transmission problem
2001 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 111000 miles

When I put my truck into 4WD, I hear a thump when driving. I think my transfer case gears are broken. What is the cost to fix or replace?

have the same problem?

Are you sure the noise comes from the transfer case and not the front axle? Does the 4wd work?

It does work, however there is a loud thumping noise when it is engaged while I drive. Mechanic said it probably is a broken tooth on a gear inside transfer case and wants to rebuild/repair it for $1500!
