#180 of 209 Re: HELP ME !!4x4 while driving feels like hittin bumps that arnt there [ttp]
Feb 07, 2011 (4:55 pm)
Good evening, Replying to cschwartz2
I have a 2006 Ford Ranger 4x4 . It still feels like it Bucks or hits bumps that are not there. on snow Covered Roads or Dry Roads. That should not be an Issue . Lets say it snows 4" and You pull off and engage the 4Hi and it starts doing that again. When I first bought the truck 2 years ago . Used & Low mileage . It did not do That at all. So what Changed? I only use the 4x4 when I really need it. Some times the Front locks up. If I do not take it out of 4Hi and Use the Emergency Break. Now I just park it in Gear / 2wheel I don`t seem to be getting any answers to this Problem. It runs fine in 2 wheel. It has been very Frustrating to find an answer. PrayerHiker

Mine is a 2002 xlt. That is odd. Mine is a automatic. Maybe that has something to do with it, possible not fully engaging for some reason. Before mine locks in totally it sometimes grinds or will have a hard time moving if going slow(5 MPH). But it will engage and be fine. My truck has 68,000 miles, What does yours have? Have you had anybody look at it? Have someone also check your 4x4 control module. Small brain on passenger side under kickpanel that controls 4x4. Mine was shot costed 200 to replace it. Works perfect again. Good luck!! Also, I'm tired of my small truck! Anyone want to buy it!
