today i was messing around with some friends and i went to put my 94 bronco in 4 wheel low and it would not go no matter how hard i pushed down on my shifter so i spent about 2 or 3 hours this afternoon trying to figure out why it will not go in to 4 wheel low... i checked the linkage that goes to the transfer case but i didnt see enything wrong we oiled the little boot at the top of the shifter by puting a small slit in it and then oiled all of the linkages going to the transfer case but it will not go into neutrol or 4 wheel low any help would be apreciated... i realy dont wanna take it to a transmision shop

Yea, like gearhead said, make sure its in neutal. With mine even if the truck is parked(in park), It wont shift into 4Lo. I guess its the little bit of bind in the drivetrain, since Im always parked on some amount of incline.

as they wrote and;
our 96 needs (when on sand or in uneven surfaces) to be in N; rocked a little forward and rearward; and at times, the engine shut off and restarted then shifted to 4 L...all this is in the Owner's guide.

yo,

..stoked; he has the manual tc shift.
-----
Cody,
If lubing didn't help (see below for lube points) another poss. may be that the Transfer case shifter fork is worn out..it is a reg. maint. itme every 15k miles:
"...Lubricate transfer case shift lever pivot bolt and control rod connecting pins (4x4)"
...........
More info from the Owner's Guide:"
esp. this part:
"To shift between 4H and 4L:
"...let the vehicle roll slightly and/or turn off the engine (particularly on vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions)."
Then try to shift again.
This was a prob on the beach once w/our 96; how the heck do you roll it while going thru N?...had to rock it as when in snow in old rear wheel drive cars.
more below:
Stop the vehicle and place the automatic
transmission into NEUTRAL or depress the
clutch on manual transmission vehicles. Push the
transfer case shift knob down (toward the
ground) and at the same time pull or push the
lever straight forward or rearward (depending
on the desired position, 4H or 4L) in order to
shift the transfer case. This shift should be in
one continuous motion without pausing in the N
(neutral) position. Pausing in the neutral position
can result in gear clash and difficult shifting. If,
while shifting between 4H and 4L, the transfer
case gets stuck in the N (neutral) position or is
difficult to shift into either 4H or 4L, it may be
necessary to let the vehicle roll slightly and/or
turn off the engine (particularly on vehicles
equipped with automatic transmissions).
To shift into and out of N (neutral)
To shift into N (neutral), stop the vehicle and
engage the parking brake. Place the automatic
transmission into NEUTRAL or depress the
clutch. From either the 4H or 4L position, push
the transfer case shift knob down (toward the
ground) and move the transfer case shift lever to
the N (neutral) position. The N (neutral) position
should only be used for vehicle towing.
NOTE: Dash mounted four wheel drive
indicator lights are off when your
vehicle is in neutral.
To shift from N (Neutral) to either 4H or 4L,
stop the vehicle and engage the parking brake.
Place the automatic transmission into NEUTRAL
or depress the clutch on manual transmission
vehicles. Push the transfer case knob down
(toward the ground) and at the same time move
the transfer case shift lever to the desired position. If it is difficult to shift into either 4H or
4L, it may be necessary to let the vehicle roll
slightly and/or turn off the engine (particularly
on vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions."
