Banging in 4 wheel drive
Hello, I am experiencing issues with my '04 ford ranger.
Let me first begin with that I bought this truck at a dealership in Anchorage, Alaska and I am currently driving it at the University Of Alaska Fairbanks. Ever since the winter I bought it, I am having troubles while in 4wd.
It experiences problems when it is: Decelerating, turning (around 20 degrees), and moving at slower speeds.
This Banging, shakes the entire vehicle. I took it last winter to a ford dealership and they said it was the T-case and that it would cost 1600 dollars to replace. I am a college student not a lawyer. So I took it to a local mechanic shop where they explained that the used studded tires were so worn out that the vehicle was constantly account for slippage so it was popping it in and out of 4wd. So they suggested new tires.
I bought new tires this spring (All season tires) and to my surprise the banging still continues on snow and ice. This is why I am here, can anyone please help me or perhaps explain to me the directs problem from those who have had a similar issue.
Manual, '04, New tires(no relative wear), Tires have been rotated and balanced.
Thank you for any help.
