Do a spinout in some dirt or snow and have a friend watch! Step on the gas and peel out, then hit the brakes and see where the skid mark is!!! lol
the easiest way is to look underneath. If there is a long tubular drive shaft from the transmission to a rear gear differential, it is RWD.
If there is no rear differential, it is FWD.
Look at the engine too... if it is linear to the body... RWD. FWD engines sit sideways and have 1/2 shaft axles coming out of them with rubber boots.

What is it that engages front drive. Is it front gear box or in transmission?


Depends on what sort of set up you have.

If there's a transfer case - it's like another gearbox on the transmission - it's the transfer case (I.e a gearbox..) that supplies power to your front wheels.

The transfer case is itself powered by the transmission. You will have a propshaft (driveshaft) running from the transfer case to the front differential.

I have a 1985 toyota pickup 2wd. the passenger rear end brakes locked or freezed and dont know how to fix it


Rear wheel cylinder by that are often bind up from corrosion.
But by turning the adjusters down, through the port in the back of the backing plate, you should be able to get the drum off. Then you loose then brake line, remove the shoes, take the cylinder retaining bolt out, and the cylinder should come right out.
When you install the new one, fill it with brake fluid first, and there will be less air to bleed out.
If you want to be cheap, you can probably leave the old cylinder in, take it apart where it sits, hone it out, and put in new rubber seals, use a lot of brake grease, and you can do it for about $10.

When in 2 wheel drive ,where's the drive ? ? front or rear,?? when driving the 4 wheel auto trans from what I understand, the 2 wheel drive drives from the rear. Does the 4wheel auto drive from the rear ...


you can tell by looking underneath the vehicle-if it is rear wheel drive (primary) the rear axle will have a 'pumpkin' in the center of the rear. I do not know of any 4wd that is primarily fwd-so I would think yours is rwd.
