More than likely the automatic idle speed control valve is dirty along with the throttle valve, clean them as outlined below.

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

My 1995 GMC z71 when the motor light comes on it starts idleing up and down it. Shifts ruff from reverse to drive and u have to put it to. The floor to get going and solutions?


Does it shift rough due to the idle speed of the engine? If I had to make a guess, it sound like the distributor cap has water in it or has melted a bit. Check into that. Could be a bad spark plug or wire too.

How do you put the jeep in 4 wheel drive?


if the hubs are manual you will have to turn them to the locked position, get in the vehicle put it in neutral and pull the shifter into 4h. put the vehicle in reverse with your foot on the break and then put it into drive. if it has auto locking hubs then all you have to do is out the vehicle into neutral and turn the knob to 4h place the vehicle into reverse with your foot on the brake and then into drive and off you go. have fun

I have a chevy pick-up truck the year 1995 Z71. I put the truck in 4x4 high for the first time this year and did not get a light near the gear lever nor did it go into 4 wheel drive. I check the transfer...


check on the frontend, some of the chevys have an electricl controlled vaccum actuator that locks the frontend in, it will be close to the punkin. if the vaccum line is off or has a hole in it, it will not engauge in 4 wheel drive. hope this helps

My 97 z71 wont shift from 4wd back into 2wd


sometimes you have to reverse for it to kick out of four wheel drive. Make sure you put the truck into neutral before you switch out of four wheel drive into two wheel drive. If that doesn't work, your transmission might be sticking.
