2002 f150 4x4 linkage 4.2 liter man trans

Asked by Feb 10, 2015 at 08:03 PM about the 2002 Ford F-150 XL 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

just picked up a 2002 f150 v6 4x4 manual trans.

The 4x4 shifter is really stiff and tough to get in and out of 2h, 4h, 4l.  

What maintenance can I do to ease this up a little?  

Thanks

That is why the higher grade trucks have a transfer case with a servo motor to do the hard work. Try moving the truck back and forth a bit while trying to shift the transfer case. Slipping the clutch a little can help but sometimes it takes a strong right arm to shift manual transfer cases.
