      I have a 2000 explorer sport 4x4 v6 4.0L and when switching into 4X4 low, it makes a noise as if it is engaging. I was just wondering if this is normal. No noise is made when switching into 4x4 high. if it is not normal what is the possible problem.

      Well you have to be in nuetral when you switch to 4WD Low. If you hear a big clunch noise it's the electronic shift motor putting it in the lowwer gear. No noise is heard when in high because on some models (the ones that read AUTO, 4WD HI, 4WD LOW), it's like it's always on 4WD high because it's all wheel drive. Anyway, I probably confused you, but if you only hear this noise when shifting in and out of 4WD Low, it's normal in my opinion.
