Hello Sir I have an misunderstanding about 4 wheel drive and because I don't understand it, I would normally drive in ( D ) which means drive but every time I put it in drive and start driving it pretty much drags like the transmission is not in place, the hi/low of my 4 wheel drives just blinks and I press low so it can drive normal, but that doesn't work, so that leaves me with no option, to only drive in ( 2 ) which is the only way I can drive because I don't understand the the 4 wheel drive

I have a '91 Jimmy and when I am in 2 wheel drive I hear a rattling and slight grinding noise. I believe its from the transfer case. I used to hear this noise after coming out of 4 wheel drive, but then it went away. Now the noise is back, but isn't there if I am in 4 wheel drive. Is there a gear that's rubbing inside the case when I am in 2 wheel drive? Could the gear be slipping into 4 wheel drive? Whats keeping it from slipping into 4 wheel drive? Will adjusting the 2-4 wheel drive lever fix

2002 2500 silverado - 4-wheel drive makes clicking noise some times, mainly when cornering. Now the nose went away, and no 4 wheel drive anymore. 4-wheel drive light is on, but no 4 wheel drive. Vehicle on jack stands, start engine, put into drive, then enguage 4-wheel drive. Light flashes and clicking sound comes from transmission. Is the transfer [art pf the transmission out, or just a actuator? Is there a way of enguaging the 4-wheel drive manually?

When in 2 wheel drive ,where's the drive ? ? front or rear,?? when driving the 4 wheel auto trans from what I understand, the 2 wheel drive drives from the rear. Does the 4wheel auto drive from the rear when in 2 wheel, or the front ??


You can tell by looking underneath the vehicle-if it is rear wheel drive (primary) the rear axle will have a 'pumpkin' in the center of the rear. I do not know of any 4wd that is primarily fwd-so I would think yours is rwd. ... 2002 Kia Sportage

08 f150 4x4 on front end only one side is disengaging when in 2 wheel drive. The problem is when engaged into 4x4 wheel drive the front drive line spins and both sides engage but only the back wheels spin and when disengaged only the right side disengages. It doesn't make sense when front is engaged in 4x4 wheel drive and the front drive shaft spins and it only acts like it is in 2 wheel drive. What do you feel is the problem?


If I read this correctly ( which I might not have, bit early for me ), the front drive shaft will engage ( from the transfer case ) but the front wheels are not engaged ?If so, sounds like either the vacuum from the IWE ( Integrated Wheel ... 2004 Ford F150

Car cuts out sometimes when you are driving. Car sometimes struggles to start. It does start eventually and can drive perfect for a few days, then it suddenly cuts out when you are driving and it appears to be when I am slowing down for traffic lights etc. If I wait a few minutes, the car starts and I can continue driving and ir may drive fine for a few more days. On the other hand it can cut out twice in a day.

Idle loops after highway driving, the engine idles "loopy?". when I come to a stop after highway driving the engine almost cuts out over and over, but does not stall. I only experience this problem after highway driving, not when I start the engine and let it warm up, and not when I am driving regular surface streets. It might be because the engine gets hotter after driving 70mph for a few miles.
