Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2003 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
I took my Ford Explorer 4X4 off road yesterday. While I was out in the middle of the field I thought I might need 4X4 so I engaged it without any trouble but when I needed to make a few sharp turns the front end would make a loud popping sound and the front end felt like it was binding. When we got back on pavment and I turned off the 4X4 the truck acted fine again.
Are my U-joints going out on my front drive shafts? That's my guess but I've never owned a 4X4 before. Is this an expensive fix? If I were to attempt to fix it myself would I need any special tools?
have the same problem?
