I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

1998 Chevy S10 front axle will not engage when put into 4 wheel


Normal thing that happens as long as onone (worked) on it, is the vacume hose going to the engage sevevo under the battery box has fell of on either end or is brocken on the way there. Then the once or now leaky battery acid ate up this same servo. then the cable going to the front axel breaks sticks falls off or even someone needing one climbed under your truck while parked somewhere to get one to replace their brokeen one now you don't have one then theaxel engage arm or gearset is damaged

Replace the push button selector assembly. Common failures. If that isnt the problem then the encoder motor on transfer case has failed. Try switch first.

Four wheel won't engage


Theres a vacume dash pot under the battery box. It pulls a cable that engages the front diff. Put the vacume line and you'll have lights and four wheel drive. (it happened to my blazzer)

I have a 1988 chevy pickup. The 4 wheel drive does not work. the transfer case is kicking in but the hubs are not. The front shaft is spinning in 4 wheel drive bu the hubs are not engaging


OK If you have manual locking hubs, one could be acting up. Jack the rear wheels off the ground and block the front wheels. Be sure you have the trucks back axel supported, not just on jacks! Then, with a person in the drivers seat, put it in gear. The 'driver' will turn the steering from lock to lock, while you check [from outside the truck, not under]] for the shaft at the front wheels that is spinning. This is the prob ! Frankster016

the connections near the front axle that activate the motor to engage the system aren't melted? That's a comon problem for that body style. If there good, sounds like it could be that motor itself. To figure out if it's you motor or transfercase, jack up the rear end, have a friend inside shift into 4 wheel drive, or try to, and put it in gear and apply some gas. If the front driveshaft is turning then it's something with the front end. If not, farther back in the system.
