if ya hear your 4x4 motor click,its prob okay, if ya see frt driveshaft turning, and frt axles not turning, hub issue! got a cheap and quick fix,cause hubs are expensive! pop hub caps off, turn center part of plastic hub counterclockwise, then cut mesh/plastic center out,and reinstall,now ya got a push button 4x4 hub, quick and cheap!push all way in and release,then engaged, push half way in until light click noise, then disengaged

I`m new here. Ford Ranger 06 has 4x4 Problems. It will engage H & Low. After a mile or So it sounds like You are Running over Sticks or Bumps. Then it will Settle out and Do it again . 2 Major Snow Storms in Pa. It will Run Fine out of 4x4 . Any Ideas ? I have also Had Wheel Lock up . So I don`t use the Parking Break Much . Just leave it in Gear to Park. I had an 98 Ranger it also Locked up. Had to Get new Emergency Cable... Is this going to be a Costly Fix. Thanks for Your Time

My 2003 is doing the same thing. I have heard everything from one tire is wore worse than the others and that is causing it to the u joints are bad. Has anyone fixed this problem. I do not want to start throwing money at it and not fix the problem.

I was wondering if the hubs from ebay fixed your problem. I have a 97 that does the same thing you mentioned, I have automatic hubs, can I change them to manual or should I go back with automatic?

I have a 1997 ranger 4x4 with automatic hubs, everything is working on the 4wheel drive, except the hubs are not engaging. can these be changed to manual hubs or should I go back with the automatic hubs. I found some manual hubs on ebay for $265, it comes with a conversion kit to change them over.(not sure if that works) or I can get some rebuilt automatic hubs for $225.

I went to the Ford Dealer today . I took my Wife and engaged the 4x4 on the way in. She also noticed the Bump noise. The Mechanic took it on a 15 mile Ride and Could not hear any Problem. Ran a Computer Test on it and said that the 5 & 6 spark plug /wires were showing up on the test.... I said I would Do the Work. I pick up Plugs & Plug Wires. Change out 2 Tonight. 5&6 . Will Change out the Rest Tomorrow. He seem to Think that the Engine was Lugging down when in the 4x4 Mode causing a problem. ?

I had a 98 Ranger and it would do the Same Thing. It would Read that it was in 4x4 HI and not engaged. I t was bitter cold out that Winter . No Garage and the Pneumatic part Froze up. When it Thawed out it Worked. I had a Friend who was a Mechanic and Said just get the Hubs that you Manually Lock in / out . Just a Thought.

Still working on the 4x4 Problem. Changed out 4 of the 6 Plugs/ Wire so Far ... 2&3 are a Real Bear to Get To. Anyway It Ran smoother but still front end noise only when engaged in 4x4 . Runs Great out of 4 Wheel. ???? III JOHN 2
