Ford Explorer Transmission Questions
#346 of 398 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Transmission
May 06, 2012 (6:24 am)
I have a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport with over 180,000 miles. I recently had it in the shop for a tune up and replacement of the intake gaskets (Check engine light was on). Now, the engine sounds like a diesel truck at idle that is worse when I first start the truck and sometimes eases up after driving it for awhile. At other times, the noise remains. In addition, the transmission sometimes gets stuck in 1st gear. Turning the truck off and then back on usually takes care of that. Does it sound like these two issues could be related? I donít know whether I should take it to the transmission shop or my regular repair shop or if it is even worth putting more money into this truck. Thank you for any advice you can offer.
#347 of 398 96 Explorer Wierd Transmission Issue
Jun 07, 2012 (1:36 pm)
My explorer would not stay on unless my foot was on the gas, leading me to believe there was a fuel issue. The car cut off at a red light so I waited until it changed to turn it back on. I had my feet on the gas and brake as I shifted to drive. Once I took my foot off of the brake the car jerked and would not move. But now it woupd remain on without a problem, just would not drive or reverse. The car knows which gear it is in because I can push it if it is in neutral, and remains still if in park. Can someone please tell me what component(s) can be related to cause both of these issues and how I should proceed... Thank You

I have a 1997 explorer 4wd with a 4.0efi in it and I have a 2000 explorer 4wd with a 4.0L. The trans on the 2000 went out and the transfer case on the 97 is bad so I want to put the 97 trans in the 2000 but was told by a friend that they wont swap-out. He said they changed something in 1999 and they wont work. Is this true?

I have a 1997 explorer 4wd, 4.0l,
When Im driving down the road, I get a noise like a clunck and I feel it as well,
the tranny shifts ok, no rpm spikes like slippage, it goes into 4x4 ok, but I keep hearing and feeling the tranny or t-case cluncking like something is binding or snapping, you can hear it good , some times it does it every 15 seconds.
I took it to a tranny shop and they hooked up their snap on tool and drove it, no codes and I was told it was the t-case, like the clutch pack in t-case and gave me a estimate of $950.00 to over haul it.
So I went and got a different t-case and replaced it, took it for a test drive and it was fine until I got about a mile from my house and it did it again, but it isnt as bad as before.
I have no idea what could be causing it.
I plan on taking the front drive line off to see if changes.
Any ideas, like I siad, tranny shifts just fine no codes and no flashing o/d light.

Is there a sensor on the tranny like the output shaft sensor or O/D drum sensor that can cause this problem sending a bad signal ??

I replaced the transfer case and it took care of the problem , I want to thanks myself for answering my own question since no one else could or would on ether forums.
cfsdir , if your`s is doing the same thing mine was doing, you will need to replace the transfer case or have it rebuilt.
