2002 Explorer problem.
Ok, so this stupid truck(02 explorer w/ 4 wd) has been in the shop 3x since feburary for the same problem. They say the computer isn't throwing a code and that it isn't acting out with them. Guess they don't know how to be a real mechanic, they just rely on a computer.
Anyway the 4x4 high light has been flashing and when changing gears(either from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd) it will make like a really low screeching sound, lag in shifting and then jump when it does shift. They replaced the 4x4 module this last time but it didn't fix the problem.
The first time it acted out i was going into the gas station and there was a small pot hole. There was a car coming the oppisite way so i couldn't miss it, i slowed to about 5 MPH and hit the pot hole. The explorer threw itself into 4 WD , so i slowed to a stop, put it in neutral, and tried to get it out of 4 WD. Well, it wouldn't come out of it, so i tried putting it in park and all it did was grind. Tried to put it back in drive, thought i'd just drive it the 20 ft to the station and park it, IT WOULDN"T MOVE!! I put it back in neutral and it finally kicked out of 4WD.
Anyone have any ideas of what needs to be done to fix this??? It is still under warranty, and i figure they are just trying to ride it out so they don't have to do some expensive repair under warranty.
