    I've got a '94 Explorer with "on-the-fly" 4WD. According to the manual, (unfortunately I don't have it with me) in order to fully disengage 4WD, you need to put the car in reverse for 10 feet after you've pushed the 4WD button.
    I thought I went at least 10 feet in the opposite direction before I parked my
    car. But, when I went to start it this morning, I stepped on the gas and nothing happened. Then, all of a sudden, I heard this LOUD pop(like someone crashed into me) and off I went. Can anyone explain this?

    Also, do you have to start the car in 2WD or can you shut it off in 4WD?

    Im wondering why trans has to be in neutral/column before shifting transfer case/4wd to 4h or 4l in older trucks. If it has to be in neutral, how can you use reverse on the trans/column ?
