1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee AWD full time 4wd but the front axle is not spinning. I just bought the car. The driveshaft is spinning and the cv's are spinning because the rear wheels are forcing them to spin but in the snow I feel like I'm on a sled and when it gets stuck you can see that only the 2 rear wheels are spinning.

I can't get the front differential out of my 1995 S-10 pickup. It is free from all other parts (axles, u-joint, frame, etc), but I cannot get it to drop. Do I need to lift the engine to create the space needed? I'm stuck and have exhausted every idea. Please comment, I'm at wits end.

My 2001 chevy 2500 is stuck in 4wd. I have installed a new selector switch, didn't help. Now when I press 2hi it blinks then switches back to 4h. I have checked the front axle shaft motor, when you press 2h it retracts then goes back to the extended position. I can hear the transfer case shift motor operating, but I don't know if it is operating properly. The service 4wd light is also on at this time. Anyone have any ideas where to go next!
