Asked by Jan 27, 2014 at 11:44 PM about the 1997 Ford Expedition 4 Dr XLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can't get SUV t move now. The car was in AWD, and then I put it in REVERSE and moved dial to  4 wheel low. Now dial will show AWD, but will not go into 4W HIGH OR LOW. When try and put it in PARK it makes a grinding noise. What did I break and how do I fix it?

the park pall engages to a toothed gear on the trans mainshaft. near the tail, if it grinds while running it is trying to engage a moving mainshaft that if connected would be driving the truck. now did you split the rear shaft yoke at the trans, or snap a rear axel, jack it up and see what's moving with a helper holding brake ,watch it checking this stuff can be dangerous if your not familiar
