I feels like my Sport Trac is in AWD all the time but no AWD light on.

    I'm getting a vibration from the floor board and it feels like i'm in AWD. Anybody have this before?

    you can simply pull the 4wd fuse ( 20A under the hood) and then you will know. BUT it sounds like the driveshaft carrier bearing is shot and causing a vibration.... Have to go under and look.... Could be an axle mount or something else too.... Get it looked at.

    the fuse box is upside down rom the diagram, make sure you have the right one.....IF so, its got to be a bad Diff, transfer case, or drive shaft binding or broken....

    you can take the 4wd motor off and see if it springs back to 2wd...

    Ok, its not the AWD. Both drive shafts feel nice and tight. And its not the rear diff. It is speed oriented not rpm oriented. Could it be my front axel/ spindles. I have 65k miles and many here have reported issues around this mileage. Again,,,, its a small humming/ minor vibration that is felt on the floor board and slightly thru the steering wheel.

    Body mounts, Transfer case, Front diff ( check oil) and wheel bearings.

    Thank you guys for your knowledge and reply's. I work the midnight shift so it takes me a while to get back. No oil on my driveway floor. How do I test the hubs?
