1995 Xl 4x4
Recently picked up a 1995 F150XL Single cab 4x4, 5 speed manual, 300 6 in it. I was doin some 4x4ing through the mud with it, and all of a sudden it started jerking and wheels locked up. I am 99% sure transfer case nearly locked up. Only happens when I put it in 4Hi. (It has manual locking hubs on the front wheels, and a floor shift). The transfer case is covered in oil that looks like its been there for awhile, more like a grease. Is this sucker leaking? Strange that 4Lo works. Anyways if the transfer case has a leak in it, will this effect its preformance in 2Hi? This is our only vehicle at the moment. I had a 07 ranger been in a accident and my insurance went up from 2000 to nearly 6000 a year so thats how I scored this truck. No leaks from the oil pan/tranny. If it is infact the transfer case, can it be resealed with a liquid gasket without removing it from the vehicle? 4x4 light does not come on ever in 4Hi. But I do know the truck is in 4wd when I move the shifter to 4hi because of the handling. the Low range light does come on in 4lo i am just suspecting a bulb in that. Is the Cover on the dash over the guages hard to remove? or just simple clips like the rangers. ALso power steering whines when turning wheel and power steering fluid is showing Good on the dipstick. (Running at operating temp)
