1994 Blazer K1500 The 4-wheel drive stopped working. Lights don't light up to show it is going in, does nothing. Changed the actuator and still does not work. Any ideas?


under the battery there is a diaphram that has a cable that runs to the front differential, if you can squeeze in there and pull on that cable and make it work you would likely have a vacuum problem... they come disconnected from the back of the intake manifold some times, and have seen the vacuum lines come loose at the transfer case.. anyway there is a starting point!

My 2001 F-150 will not shift into 4 wheel drive. I've checked out the vacuum shift motor and the vacuum shift silenoids and they seem to be working properly (confirmed visually the motor moving in and...


Just to verify, have you removed the hubs and verified they move freely in either direction? and that the vaccuum diaprhagm inside the hub is working? By stating the vaccuum system, you do have AUTO hubs correct? I have fixed these problems many a times and found it is usually the auto hub assembly itself is not properly operating.

Front drive shaft not fully engaged in 4WD, with truck on stands all 4 wheels do rotate but if i stop front wheels the front drive shaft is not engaged


Hi,
Do you have auto locking hubs on the front wheels, or manual locking hubs?
If you have auto locking hubs chances are they are not engaging properly and will need to be removed and spline sets checked for broken teeth on locking hub and locking shaft.
If you have manual locking hubs then check that they are firm when turning to engage them in the lock position.If they are light when engaging them to the lock position then they my have broken/worn out the locking hub and spline. Also check that the engaging spring inside the hub has enough tension to engage the hubs they may be broken. If the hub are all ok then you have a problem in the transfer box, where the 4WD lever is not meshing the transfer box properly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

First of all try checking your fuse box and make sure the 4X4 fuse is still good. If the fuse is good, move the shift lever for the 4X4 on the floor into 4 high, then get a friend to watch underneath when you move the vehicle a little bit to see if the front driveshaft is turning. If the front shaft going to your differential is turning the problem is probably the electric actuator on the differential.

Noise in front diff


Three probable issues;
1-The transfer case is low or out of fluid.
2-The drive shaft may be out of alignment due to worn front or back U joints (thus the clunk on shift)
3-the shift lever is out of alignment with the shift mechanism on the transmission housing.

Front wheel will not engage for 4 wheel drive


very possible. Put your jeep on 4 jackstands and put in 4 wheel drive. if the front drive shaft turns pull the vacuum disconnect and check the shift fork. They usually break before the shift actuator.
