Hi, I´m having trouble with my 2010 Transit 2,4 140ps AWD that I bought last year and kept in storage since.
Straight forward slowly driving no problem , but when turning sometimes strange noise an wibrations and stering stiffens up.
Hard to say when sitting in car , but it feels like front diff locks up and wheels turns same speed.
I had the same noise and behaviour one a 1991Toyota Hiace RWD when the guys at the garage put wrong oil in the differential,
cracking rumble when turning and straight forward ok. They used the same oil as they used in their racecar with LS-diff but for some reason it didn´t coope with the Toyota LS-diff, new oilchange , got the right oil after consulting the local Toyota dealer, it was some Shell-oil , don't remember the specs , but it fixed the problem after driving about 30km ( approx 20miles )
Could it ber the same problem here ? I have no information about what previous owners have or havent done in case of service/oilchanges
Going to try oilchange tomorrow, that's the cheapest repair , if it works.
Got Comma "MVMTF Plus 75W-90 GL4" from my local spareparts-shop , and now hoping this fixes the problem.
Have anyone experienced the same problem?
I would say that otherwise the AWD works, hard to say by the way , when using excessive trottle and turning on gravel I would say that first a slight wheelspinn on backwheels and then , as if a second clutch was to be released, frontaxel kicks in an wheelspinn stopps and stability reoccurs, all in fractions of a second but enough to feel.
I havent got all markings of the diff but some text , Getrag manufacurer and Ford County label on it , but this shouldn't be of any matter as it,'s a standard Transit AWD ,obviously all stock and standard .
Any ideas anyone?
Otherwise , Have a nice day
ps. Writing from Finland , sorry if I miss-spelled some of my words but hopefully You gett my drift anyway.
