1994 Ford Aerostar
I'm helping a friend sell his 1994 Ford Aerostar. How do I know if it is RWD or 4WD?

There will be a transfer case in it with a front drive shaft.

It will have a front differential.

There will be a mechanism inside to shift the transfer case into 4wd.

Most have information about the 4wd
On the visor.

There will be a set of hubs in the front wheels. Either automatic or manual.

Dana supplied an unusual 4X4 system for some years, in which TWO front driveshafts came out of the transfer case, each driving one front wheel with it's own gearbox. I forget it's name, but suspected it was used in Aerostar 4X4.

Do you remember it, or it's name? imp

Usually on the fenders there will be a badge that says electronic all wheel drive. If it has a 3.0L engine it will be rwd.
