I have a 1998 Ford Explorer with on demand 4WD. I have had the vehicle looked at by Ford repair shops as well as independent shops and have had numerous fixes applied costing me lots of money but the problem remains unresolved. When starting down a mountain road right after turning the car on I engage the 4WD low in 1. The vehicle starts to walk down the road but only gets 1/4 mile down before the 4WD lets go and I find myself freewheeling down the road. I have to apply brakes from that point on.
All the shops engage the 4WD on flat surface or on a lift and see the four wheels turning and tell me they have fixed the problem. Since there are no significant hills where I live I cannot demonstrate the failure to them. Any ideas on what to point them to so they can fix this right
have the same problem?
