Just bought a 1989 suzuki sidekick and the 4 wheel drive does not work. what are common problems with that? or what should i look for to figure out the problem.


Assuming that the front prop shaft turns when you put it in 4WD, then I would start by checking the locking hub mechanisms. These should be regularly serviced and greased, but seldom are, and so rust builds up and locks it engaged or disengaged. Ther ... 1989 Suzuki Sidekick

I have a 2006 subaru Impreza, regular economy model (2.5i I think)... It was recently towed with the front wheels in the air and the back wheels on the ground. The back wheels rolled smoothly and it didn't look like anything was being damaged and the tow truck driver assured me it wouldn't do any damage. However the manul and everywhere else I've read says to never tow with only two wheels on the ground. The car feels like it drives fine, however I'm not sure if any damage was done or not. Pleas

I have a 2003 Silverado Z-71 4 wheel drive. When towing trailer in 2 wheel drive and the "tow" switch is engaged it does not seem to make any difference in the way the transmission shifts. If the accelerator is held in a steady position, the transmission feels like it continues to shift up and down, not staying in either gear for any length of time.


According to GM...you should use it when you have a load that is 75% of your GCVW. Holds shifts longer and makes them firmer. Also reduces the amt of "hunting" for gears if you are running in OD. The trans still go in all gears 1-OD p ... 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

My auto hubs will not lock into 4 wheel drive. Hubs work as I tried them on my sidekick and they worked fine. Does the x90 have a vacume lock system? If not what could be the problem, The transfer case seems to go into each gear as 4 low will make it go slower though in two wheel drive. Got under and turned axles and they seem Ok. I am not a mechanic, but sidekick auto hubs never gave any problems. Thanks AL
