Wondering why my 04 mountaineer front tires didn't turn when it was stuck on a slight uphill grade.

Asked by Jan 29, 2014 at 04:02 PM about the 2004 Mercury Mountaineer 4 Dr STD AWD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

4,415

AWD works a little differently than 4WD in that it uses the ABS feature on the vehicle to "brake" a slipping wheel. So, if the sensor detected that you were slipping on any wheel, it would tell the car to stop trying to grip on that tire. Hence you would detect no "spin".
