4 wheel drive

I have a Ford Ranger 1999. My 4 wheel drive is not working. I would like to know if there is a way to change the hub and make it a manual 4 wheel drive instead of automatic?

    Just bought a 99 Ranger Super Cab, it feels like the 4 wheel is working when I turn it on moving at around 30 mph but when on ice the front tires dont move.



    I found the Manual locking hubs on tellico4X4.com. the hubs are for vacuum activated hubs, will not work with live axles, how do I know which type my truck has?

There is a way to do that.....all you have to do is go get the manual locking hubs and switch it over...not that hard....did it to a early 90s f150....pretty easy.

If you are seeing the front drive shaft turn,Then it is in four wheel drive,
Your truck has automatic lock in hubs,The most common problem with Rangers is that the lock in hubs get worn and wont keep the axle engaged to the wheel,
If you go to Auto zone they have new lock in hubs for around $50.00
Or you could up grade and get hubs that you manually turn and lock in.

Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

Put manual lockers in it. And remember, you have to back up 50 feet to lock in the hubs, automatic or manual. Not doing this could cause your problem.

99 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4 The 4 wheel drive won't always kick in Looks like the electrics are working but the hubs just won't always kick in.


I had the same problem w/ my 99. If you have auto hubs, they work off a vacuum pump which is located under your air filter box..check to make sure it is working..is that is working it's on to the hubs..the locking hubs are the black caps in the center of each from wheel..they snap on and off..hard to take off without breaking a few tabs..the seal one or both may not be holding the vacuum created by the motor under the airfilter box. if one of the hubs has a vacuum leak neither side will work, it's all or nothing..aside from the electric parts on the dash and side of transmition that's about everything there is to know about 1999 ranger four wheel system.

I am not sure of the size, but you should be able to reach it with an adjustable wrench, and it shouldn't be tight at all. Hope it works.
