I have a 2003 kia sportage with free wheeling hubs. The 4wd stop working and my mechanic said the problem was I needed new hubs. At much expense I bought them and he installed them. The 4wd still did not work. He checked the drive train and all is working correctly, leading him to still believe it is the hubs. The replacement hubs are factory KIA parts in perfect condition. There must be something he is missing. Any ideas?


Yes, get a refund, do not pay the bill. He obviously is not qualified to fix this.. Take it to another shop if he refuses since he is still just guessing. As far as an answer only diagnosing will come up with the correct answer and we can't do th ... Kia Sportage

I have a 98 dodge Durango 5.2 v8 4wd and every time I go to use the brakes and the car is coming to a start(normally around 10-5 mph) my abs pump starts to run. I have replaced the front wheel sensors with new wheel hubs and i have replaced the rear axle speed sensor. The problem still occured. So I had my abs module sent out to get it refurbished with a lifetime warranty hoping that was it...and the problem still occurs. Does anyone have any other idea of what else it could be?

I replaced the right front cv axle on my 2000 Chevy Tracker with a new axle. The axle keeps pulling away from the wheel hub pushing the snap ring on the outer portion of the shaft out of its groove. I've tried 2 new axles and they both did the same thing. The snap rings are replaced with new ones each time. What could be causing this problem? Is the auto parts store giving me the wrong axle? I am contemplating getting a remanufactured axle instead, at least I would know for sure it had fit and r

I have a 2006 Ford F-150 5.4 litre the 4x4 will not engage. I can **** into 4x4 and I can't turn the front shaft, in two wheel I can spin the shaft and I can see both sides of the axles turning up to the hubs which makes me think the hubs aren't locking in, these are automatic locking hubs. How can I tell for sure what the problem is?


The hubs on this vehicle are vacuum operated and controlled by a module and a solenoid valve. When there is no vacuum applied to the hubs they should be locked in. The hubs will unlock with vacuum applied. Disconnect the vacuum lines at the hubs and ... 2006 Ford F-150

I have a '94 toyota 4WD truck. When I put it in 4WD the front wheels are not engaging. The driveshaft from the transfer case is turning, but the front wheelsare not engaged. My mechanic said the "automatic hubs" were not functioning, so I had him install manual hubs. When in 4WD with the manual hubs locked, the front wheels are still not driving ! Are there any electronic switches or vacuum lines that might be the problem? It is a 5spd manual transmission. Please help. Thanks, Kurt


What I bet is happening is the locks are working and that is what is turning the front drive shaft. If the hubs are locked then that will lock the differential and the driveshaft will turn. You really need to put the truck on a lift to put in gear to ... Toyota Pickup

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

4 wheel drive not engaging correctly. placed vehicle on jacks and attempted to engage 4wd. grinding noise from passenger cv joint, both back wheels spun independently but neither of the front wheels would spin. Able to spin the passenger front wheel but the cv joint does not turn with the wheel however the drivers front tire and cv joint do turn as they should(together). Could there be a problem with the vacuum assist for the 4WD system as well. I'm pretty sure I'll need to replace the cv joint

I need some help on puting back together a passenger side front wheel axle for a 1995 volkswagen passat glx. i ordered this axle from a junk yard throght the mail and when it arrived it had all the ball bearings out of it. i tried putting the bearings back in the housing and adding grease and then i installed it on my car. the problem is that the axle will not flex at the transmission end so it can bend down some so it will go into the wheel hub. i suspect that i am not assembling the bearings i


It is recommended that the balls go back into the grooves each of them came out of. You cannot do this since it was already in pieces when you received it, It is therefore preferable that you rather replace the joint with a new on. (Using 2nd hand o ... Volkswagen Passat

What you will need to do is to remove the whole wheel assembly. There will be one nut at the bottom of the assembly that holds on to the control arm, then you will need to take the nut off the bottom of the tie rod that attaches to the assembly (take ... Honda Civic

My 91 Ford Explorer 4WD is exhibiting some steering and suspension problems that I am having problems diagnosing. I am not sure if there is one or multiple problems involved. Where should I start? I do most of my own mechanic work. All of these symptoms come and go. 1.

Orange 4x4 lock light not coming on: When I turn into 4x4 the 4 wheel lights come on but the orange light does not come on. I am not sure if the car goes into 4wd or not?

I noticed that this happens when it's cold out (snow) Seems after a while the light will come on? wondering if this is a sensor problem or if my 4wd is working. Any way to tell if the whe


Your 4x4 is probably engaged when you shift the transfer case. If after the initial change to 4x4 you can shift from 2 to 4wd on the fly, this would be and indication that your hubs are locked. To unlock you stop the vehicle, put in 2wd and back up ... 2002 Nissan Pathfinder

Problems with front free wheeling hub

Need to replace broken front driver side wheel stud on 04 impala - seems like i have to remove hub to make room to push stud through? can someone confirm? if so, how do i get hub off - is it just a matter of removing the axle nut? I don't have a socket big enough to do that, so don't want to buy one unless i have to :). Also, sure would be nice to find an exploded view digram somwhere which names the various parts! thanks!


In the perfect world you are to remove the hub and bearing assembly and yes you would take the axle nut off,but when you are paid flat rate as a mechanic you must beat factory quoted time to make money,so with that said,remove the wheel after c ... 2004 Chevrolet Impala

After our suburu outback warms-up, there is a thumping noise from the front axles when I turn to the right or left. Our mechanic wants to change the transmission, but I am not sure that is the problem. He has ruled out the wheels, but says there is a slight chance that it is the axle.


If its all wheel drive, you will have CV joints in the front. if the boots on the cv joints are damaged, torn ripped etc, then dust and debris will have entered into the cv joint and wreak all types of havoc on the bearing. To test, go into a parking ... 2002 Subaru Outback

2001 Kia sportage. When I shift to 4WD the light comes on and the front axle is turning but the wheel don't. Is this just worn hubs? I have purchased a used set of OEM hubs. Hopefully that is all it is. What do you think?
