2004 chevy blazer drove through lots of water on the freeway but now it won;t start?

It IS possible that you went thru a bunch a water that may have slipped underneath the back hood seal, which could of gotten inside the distributor cap located right under the seal. Symptoms of this: will turn over, but not start. An old trick is to take the cap off and spray WD40 under the cap on the contacts and the rotor. The WD in WD40 stands for Water Displacement, so completely safe for this use, used it many times myself. In my case it was on purpose offroading in mud/water. :) Careful while taking the cap off, the tabs that the screws go into are plastic! Will break easily if not careful when re-installing.

front vibration at 55 goes away at 60 reapears at 65 mph

It could be a damaged tire or just out of balance. If you have been offroad it could just be mud buildup on the inside of your wheels. It could be a wheel bearing issue. If you don't have the expertise to check these out yourself, a good tire shop should be able to quickly troubleshoot this for you.

Difference betweeb 2wH part time 4wd and 2wH + full time 4wd

The difference between 4WD Full-Time and 4WD Part-Time is not exactly what one would guess simply from the names without knowing. The main difference is basically an added differential in the transfer case vs. the front and read driveshaft being locked together.

Here's what that means to you.

4WD Full-Time (open differential in transfer case)- Is great for snow and ice. It is safe to leave locked into this mode anytime, even on dry pavement or highway.

4WD Part-Time - This is the traditional type of 4WD that you have in vehicles. It will give you added traction offroad, it's good for mud, rock climbing, snow... It is actually not as good on ice as 4WD Full-Time. Do not drive on dry pavement, especially around corners, in this mode. It can cause major damage, and at the least will cause unnecessary wear to the components.

I hope this helps.

Mud in fog lights

you can take the bulbs out and wash them out from the holes, a good way of preventing this is to use silicone around the bulb connector but then you have to clean all of the silicone off when replacing the bulbs
