99 awd expedition stops when turns 4X4
I have a 99 expedition Eddie B edition 137,000 miles i paid 700 bucks US dollars for.
It stops when I turn the wheels. My old Jeep did this too and never found the problem. Its AWD if I coast and turn the wheels it stops. if I throttle it hops and jumps around and binds up somewhere in the drive train. It also vibrates bad when driving straight. I took out the front drive shaft it stops binding but still vibrates. I have checked all cv axles seem ok. The fluid is horrible BLACK everywhere front diff, transfer case, rear diff, I think they was never changed all 137000 miles. I changed all the fluids 90w, transfer case takes trans fluid, still not any better. so I took it to shop they had no idea they wanted to toss money at it to make it go away. So I took else where same thing. took to Ford paid to have it checked out they said the transfer case or axles are bad ?????? witch one I asked? we don't know (lets toss money at it and it will go away) hummm
So friday I took and lifted it up and checked things myself I replaced inner outer tie rods,idle arm, pitman arm, no luck they was bad anyways took for front end alignment saturday, done good, told them It about my problems they test drove and jacked it up and they don't know what is wrong. front end alignment didn't fix it.
I was thinking that they front shafts are bad. But I can't really afford to toss money at it since I am laid off from work like so many other people are in this country. I was hoping that some one on here had the same trouble and was able to fix it with out tossing money at the problem. I don't have a problem with changing the part I just don't want to have to spend $120 for new front cv axles if the transfer case is bad. or 375 for a junk yard t case and then if its the axles how would I know the case is good?
This was a very clean SUV till I hit the fender with a hammer on accident getting the left outer tie rod off and runs ok needs a tune up misfire on #5 had a trans code it wasn't reading something i forgot what the code meant it was p1205 I found wires messed up on the harness for the trans. and repaid as needed that's all good now. I did a compression test all cyls are in good range. Changed the fuel filter that was a PITA to change checked the front and rear brakes they look like they have about 10 miles on them both with new rotors rt front hose & caliper new. The past owner moved to TX. didn't want it anymore. A nd his brother sold it to me for $700 I think I did good but wife is complaining of front end.
Thanks everyone for putting up with my rambling If you are unsure what I am talking about please just post and I'll try to explain it better
