i'm new to this forum and don't know how to post..
here's my problem..i have a 1997 ford explorer xlt. has a 4.0 ohv automatic trans with over drive. it is 4wd 8th number on Vin is x if this will help.. OK now the problem is we was out driving and i turned in a ally that went up and was steep i slid in rwd so i engaged the 4wd hi. it made a weird noise but went in and went up slow while i was accelerating..? so i finally toped the hill and went around and came up it again to see if it would act that way again...answer no it did fine..well we left that spot disengaged 4wd and proceeded home a couple block's away..i pulled in my drive way and pulled up to the house a little to far..i put it in reverse and it didn't move so i gave it some throttle and it acted like it wanted to pull forward.?? so i put it in neutral it took off forward..?? i was stumped as it's never done this before.i put it in park and revved it a little and it acted like i was power braking it and rocked forward..every gear goes forward but i had to push it backward's out of my drive way shut off in neutral but when i started it in park it jumped forward when it started.i put it in drive with o/d on and it drove fine put it in neutral at a stop sign and it drove but acted like i had it in first gear but wouldn't shift i put it back in drive it done great..stop put it back in park and it did the same thing as earlier..i'm confused don't have a lot of money and it's our only vec. so anyone understanding this or has had this before please help..
