Have a 1985 chevy s10 pick up & the 4 wheel drive wont engage. I already replaced the solenoid on top of the transfer case, & it still wont engage. I can hear the transfer case engage & I have vacum at the...

Make sure that the vacuum hose connector is connected AND connected correctly at the transfer case and at the front differential. If that is all right and the front differential still doesn't engage, then you need to test the vacuum actuator at the front differential.

I have an 87 s10 pick up 2.8 v6 and i think its getting to much fuel. the air filter is soaked and it chugs and backfires. i just replaced the map sensor. thought it might be the injectors. i also dont...

Good Lord! The FILTER should never be fuel soaked. I would have it given a full tune up, have the carb tuned, and then, for heaven's sake, check the distributor timing. That, and less importantly (I doubt it's the valves if it runs) the valve/cam timing. But mostly check that distributor!

1987 2.8 S10 pickup; wont engage in 4WD. drive.The vacuum canister dose not move . Dose the vacuum line go right to the shifter? And is there any type of relay involved? Or fuse ,or anything else?

There is a vacum actuator on the right side inner fender or under the battery box. Vacum line in one end, that operates a cable on the other end. This
cable engages and disengages the front axel.
Hope this helps.

sounds like either a fuse or the do u have locking hubs that need to be engaged also when using 4 wheel drive there is actually only 2 wheels turning usually passenger front and driver back sometimes u also have to drive backwards to engage and also disengage 4 wheel drive finally it may be a transfer case problem check drive shafts and u joints make sure they are engaged

Stuck in 4 wheel drive and wont come out.

hey there i cant tell you what you are missing but i can tell you how to disengage the front wheels . ok you have a vacum line that runs right under the battery and a line that comes up from the front diff. to the same place ( you may have to remove batt and batt tray to get full access to this) un bolt it and temporaly put batt and batt tray back in start it up and decompress this and see if it comes out .... you should here clunking noise if it goes back in ... if thats the case just pull that big vaccum line off .... to test get all four tires off the ground and have some one put it in drive but dont hit the gas it should turn on its own ...if that dont work check the cable that runs down to the differental

Four wheel drive not working on 1994 chevy blazer

I had a 90 S10 4X4 so I hope I can help. The front axle on this truck is locked by cable. The housing for this cable is found behind/around the battery. I found the vacume hose was falling off the plug and was not locking the front axle. When the truck is put into 4wheel, you can check the locking of the front axle here. Now if everything is working there, you might want to check the the transfur case is working. If the truck has electric it will have a electric motor on the side of the transfur case. If you have a manual shift on the transfur case then you would have to make sure that the rods are moving and locking into place. Hope this gives you an idea as to where to start looking.
