2003 mercury mountaineer awd

Asked by Jun 28, 2018 at 10:50 PM about the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My awd mountaineer was pulling really hard when
turning sharply. Like a 4x4 in 4low. Could not figure
out why. Then the other day it busted a big chunk
out the bottom of the front differential. An busted
the drive shaft off. I'm assuming it got hot in order
for it to blow a huge hole in the differential casing
like that. But why? Why would it get that hot unless
low on gear oil? If low then where did oil go
because I was just under it a week ago an did not
see any signs of leaking. An why would it b pulling
so hard when turning sharp? Trying to figure out it
there is something else I need to fix or replace
beside the front differential an drive shaft to
prevent this from happening again
