Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I could do that
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok off the ground
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 7 months ago
Does the shifter move into the correct position or are you saying there is some kind of binding where it won’t move?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The shifter mioves freely, it was worn out, but we replaced it. It goes into 2h position, but the case doesn’t not go into 2h. We gave got it to go into 2h beifly, but pops right out
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 7 months ago
Will it stay in 2h with the shifter disconnected? Manually moving the lever on the case?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, I disconnected the shifter and same thing. It will not go the last bit to engage. Looking below at the shifter, you can see an 1/8” gap like it is not all the way. Even disconnected the lever on the transfer case is not fully up in a vertical position
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Do you think it might be the auto hubs ?
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 7 months ago
If the wheels are off the ground, shift into 4x4 and see if the front driveshaft is locking. Then try again in 2wd and See if the driveshaft turns freely.

Does the truck have a suspension or body lift?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
One front auto locking hub was stuck in lock position. A shop had greased the hubs and damaged them.
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 7 months ago
everything is working correctly now?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
One front hub was stuck in lock preventing the switch to 2 high. Replaced the hubs with manual locking and all is good.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
