#115 of 209 2004 ford ranger four wheel drive
Oct 01, 2009 (4:44 am)
I am working on a 2004 ford ranger 4 x 4, my four wheel drive is not working, I can remove the tires and manually force the hubs to engage and it it works fine and then I have to remove the tires to take it out of four wheel. It works fine when it is in four wheel, I have been told it is a vacuum hose causing the problem, I can't find a vacuum hose diagram to show me where to replace these hoses. Does anyone have a vacuum diagram or would it be something else? Thank You for all your help.

I have a 2000 ford ranger 4x4, 3.0 liter. When i shift into 4x4 high there is a hard snap and it feels as though you run over a deep crack in the road. This happens approximately every 10 seconds or so. when i shift back to 4x2 it happens one last time. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it, Thank-you.

My 97 ford ranger auto won't shift into 4 wheel, lights come on and I can hear it click in but nothing else the tires don't go. the overdrive won't work either. I don't know if this is related or just a different problem

Is there any way to install manual locking hubs on a 1998 Ranger 4x4? I've had the electronic/hydrolic hubs fixed three time - they work for a while and then quit, usually when I'm on the beach! I'd have no trouble getting out of the truck to lock or unlock the hubs. Anything to keep it in 4 wheel while on the beach. Thanks for any help --
#119 of 209 4x4 out-no drive

I am trying to find out if i can disconnect the front and rear drive shafts, remove the transfer case, and replace with a longer drive shaft to perform a 2x4 bypass function only.
I am looking for feedback. This is what I want to accomplish, and here is where i am starting.
I have had a few issues with the transfer case, and i do not have the cash to spend on a new or replacement transfer case. Is there any way to bypass the transfer case when it is COMPLETELY disconnected to any moving internal gears.
It does not park when in park, the drive train up to the transfer case turns but there is a gear disconnected on the inside. it does not exhibit any transmission problems. just will not engage in the transfer case AT ALL.
History: about a year ago, my 4x4 was damages and "stuck" in 4x4 High. so to save gas, i disconnected the front drive shaft assembly. i have not had any problems with noise, vibration, etc until about a month ago. The transfer case made a crunching sound (obviously not good) and I figured i will just drive it like a truck: into the ground.
So now the transfer case is the disease. I want to bypass or isolate it, or if anyone knows where to egt the model below cheap, then I'll replace it.
Ive got plenty of depot level manuals, I'm mechanically inclined. So please leave the stupid comments to the dumb girls who think they need 2 transmissions and "halogen" fluid.

I don't know much about 4 wheel drive, but I think I've seen lots of people that converted to manual hubs. Don't know brands, etc, but it seem to be an easy conversion. And, don't think it costs too much.

Haven't heard from anyone. Maybe no one but the 2 of us has this problem. I put my winter tires on a couple of weeks ago and it seems to be doing it less now. Summer tires aren't wore very bad though. Are your tires in bad shape?
