    I have a 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0 4x4. The problem is when I take it out of 4x4 it makes a grinding noise. Do you think that it needs a new 4x4 switch? Thanks

    hey i noticed when i test drove a 4x4 ranger it did the exact same thing... it did it twice i read the manual and it said i was going into the 4x4 the correct way.. stopping and putting the car in neutral then switching it over or whaever and it still didnt work... so i decided not to go with that truck.. you could try the switch thing but if you can just take it up to some people at a shucks or an autozone.. in my area they are glad to come and check things out for free adn usually save me a couple bucks when im looking to fix up my car!
    sorry if this wasnt much help but i tried!
