    I have a similiar problem. Have you changed a tire or are they all the same pressure. They tell me they all need to be the same size and brand of tires and properly inflated

    2008 does the same thing. Dealer explained that this is normal giving there is a little play in the front differential due to 4X$ configuration. Don't think I buy it though???

    my 2007 is at the dealer right now because of the rough shifting. since the 4 wheel drive button is at my cup holder, it changed to "auto 4wd" without me knowing. dealer said it's a common problem.

    does it damage the engine to have the car in auto 4WD all the time? shouldnt it only come on when it's needed??

put it back into 2 wheel drive, then reverse 10 or 15 feet, this should unlock the hubs.

SOURCE: my 2004 lincoln aviator is jerking when I excelerate.

First go to the part store and have them check for codes on the computer. Check spark plug and wires. Hook up a timing light to each spark plug wire and see if the light skips. If so then change coil packs.

SOURCE: engine whinning

I had the same problem on my 2005 Envoy. Turned out to be the idler pulley bearing. It is just a pulley the belt rides on. The bearing in the pulley was what was making the high pitched whine. I replaced the bearing, and the noise went away.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD

Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When in auto hubs the 4 wheel drive doesn't work

They are operated by vacuum. Check to make sure the vacuum lines are connected and not ripped or anything. If that checks out fine, remove the vacuum line from the hub and apply vacuum to the hub, if the hubs lock then the problem is in the vacuum line or switch.

SOURCE: slowing down at around 40km/hr, the transmission jerks.

2008 Tucson? It should still be under warranty. Does it have more than 100,000 miles on it? Are you the original owner? If not, does it have less than 60,000 miles on it?.. If so, it's still under warranty - take it in to get fixed under warranty.

Noise from rear of when in auto 4 wheel drive


First of all, the noise is not coming from the rear. The noise is only happening in 4WD mode, that involves the transfer case and front differential.
When was the last time the transfer case fluid change, it is recommended that it be changed every 50K miles. It is possible that you have transfer case issues. It is not recommended to operate the drive system in Auto mode constantly, this will wear out the internal clutches.
If the road surface does not warrant 4 wheel drive, keep the selector in 2WD.

I have just had to replace the transmission in my 2002 Envoy and once the change was made the check 4 wheel drive light (wrench with 4 wheels)is on the dash and wont go away. My mechanic had to disengage...


Apparently during the transmission service work something was disturbed, such as a connector. The mechanic should recheck his work and scan the system for fault codes.

How do I replace the 4 wheel drive selector on my 2006 Envoy Denali.


If you have the selector dial, you will have to pull the plastic cover from the console. Plug in new selector switch and hope that it works out for you. I have a 2004 and it doese not look too hard. Be careful and not crack the plastic.cover.......
