Sounds like the acuator on the axle isn't locking the axels together and allowing them to slip you can check it by removing the actuator and looking at the collar and splines on the shafts.

Wow. A snapped side shaft sounds serious. If you lift the front end of the truck, (or the rear end for that matter) the wheels will appear to be counter rotating, it is the way a differential works. If you turn the left wheel forward, the right wheel will turn backwards, and vice versa.
When you change to 4wd the front end does make a rather loud clunking sound as the gears engage. You should therefore change while the truck is stationary, then slowly move forward or back until the 4wd engages, then take off.
If your truck went OK on ice, it should go as well on pavement, just don't try to engage 4x4 while moving.

4wd messed up in dodge 1500


inspect for worn components from output of transfer case to front diff input. If everything is tight and solid from those two points, everything else points to being transfercase internals. Make sure your actuator isn't faulty causing a "4x4 to 2x4 shift on/off"

4x4 does not engage


You need to take back to trans shop or where
ever.

Sloppy work is very common on trans repair jobs

They just never put it all back together AT ALL

I got a 96 chevy 4x4 and my front wheels aren't pulling. i replaced the acuator and still nothing. everything sounds like it is engaging but no turning of the front wheels. do 96 models have auto locking...


96 chevys have a ifs (independent front suspension) this give it more ground clearance but does not have lock out hubs, the cv axles go into the front differential an spin freely until you put it in 4wd, how this works is your transfercase spins the drive shaft that goes into the front differential an while you put it in 4wd it sends power to the actuator to lock the front differential. if your front end isnt pulling you either popped your 1 of your cv axles but if you did this you would know because it makes a very loud thunking noise while you're driving, my guess is you have a short thats not sending power to the actuator. check to see if the wiring harnesses are connected and check if the fuse that operates the 4wd in the cab of the truck is not blown. also actuators for these trucks are horrible they go out alot

When 4WD is engaged, get a loud "rubbing" sound


Sounds like it could be a front hub slipping or the front to back friction differential.
Jack up all 4 wheel on good solid jack stands or something safe, and listen for the source of the noise with a hose.
A slipping hub will be from one of the fronts, while the differential would be in the transfer box.
Check fluid levels while you are at it.

1994 4x4 V6 rodeo isuzu squeaks every time I turn the wheels could it be the cvjoint


Possibly. Could also be wheel bearing, brake pad, or other component. Isolate the noise, if you can, by driving slowly and turning left and right, seeing if the noise changes in either direction. A noise that gets louder indicated a problem with the OPPOSITE side or outside components on the turn, as they have to turn slightly faster.

CV joints usually make horribly loud grinding sounds. See if the sound is worse when 4WD is engaged or goes away. It is also possible that the auto-locking hub could be a problem. The hubs were a large problem in the early days of the product.

2002 f150 4x4 won't engage and indicator light doesnt come on. stick on floor used to engage 4x4


Check your owner's manual and follow the procedure to the letter. You have to be moving the correct speed and may have to pop the trans into neutral before it will engage 4x4, read your manual. If it acts as if it is frozen in place (the stick) maybe the linkage rusted up. Do you live on the ocean or where they salt the roads and rarely use 4x4?

Take the hubs apart, inspect them, and clean them, especially the one that you heard a clunk, something might have broke in the automatic hub lock. Make sure everthing gets put back exactly the same, or you'll have more problems. If that doesn't work, then there is something wrong somewhere in the transfer case.
