There is a vacum powered actuator on the front differential housing on the passenger side. It pushes one way for 2WD and the other way for 4WD. If it gets an erratic vacum signal it can cause the clicking as it goes between 2WD and 4WD. It gets it's vacum from two valves mounted on the firewall just behind the battery(to left). The white line feeds manifold vacum to the valves. Check for vacum at white line with engine running. If no vacum there is a break in line from manifold (not likely in this case). If vacum check the pink and blue lines by applying vacum to each one. The vacum should hold. If not check lines from valves to vacum actuator. If both lines hold vacum check valves. Remove electrical connectors from both valves. Connect a wire from one of the terminals of the valve to ground. Touch a wire from the battery + to the other terminal of the valve. Listen for a clicking sound. If no sound valve is bad. Replace valves(s). Also have someone watch position of actuator shaft as you move the selector between 2WD and 4WD. There should be movement. If there is an intermittent problem sometimes it will and other times it won't.

it may be a bad transmission modulator valve located on the side of your transmission,vacum operated. a sudden downshift or forward shift when unexpected is sign of a bad modulator valve or a vacum leak to the transmission.best to shop around for a garage w/references when it comes to transmission work though. check all the vacum lines to your transmision,you need to look on the underneath side of your truck on the side of transmission for a loose or disconnected vacum line on the side of the transmission. when you feel the vacum line,follow it to the top of engine,the vacum line is about 3/8th line,and may be disconnected or losing air. to make this short,when you drive the car,start out in low gear and shift the transmission,manually from 1st to 2nd to 3rd does it do right with no slipping? if it does this right and shifts great manually,the modulator valve on the side of the transmissions bad,or a bad vacum leak in-between.thank you for choosing fixya.com

4 wheel drive doesnt engage


everyone has this problem at one time or another with these trucks, it is vacume controlled, and it will have a main hose comming into the cab on the passenger side engine compartment, its about an 1/8" plastice line, locate it, and put a smoke machine on the line. then locate where the smoke is leaking out of. if this is not the case, then the switches sometimes are bad as well.

Our Chevy S-10 ZR2 won't go into 4 wheel drive


under battery is a vacum operated actuator that pulls your 4 wheel drive in to front axle.Make sure it has vacum going to it .Sometimes the actuator will get a hole in the rubber housing and 4 wheel will not engage.You could also check your vacum lines going to a canister on drivers side fender as sometimes the will come un-pluged and your actuator under battery will get novacum to it.If not it could be your actuator motor which is on the transfer case and is electric controlled and expencive300-400 dollars.Also could be a vacum line

May need to replace the switch itself. Most new vehcile are all electronically engaged. Replace the switch. Cheap fix compared to going into the transfer case first.

Front drive, 4 Wheel drive won't engage


that vacume line goes back to the transfer case, the end that goes behind the motor hooks to a steel tube so it does not get hot from the exhaust., my guess it should be hooked up so it will feed vacume to the vacume ball so it can lock in the axels. if you start the car and shift into 4 wheel drive and listen under hood you should hear a hissing sound, that is vacume, if you can't hear it there, you may have to craw under the right side to hear it, probably came unhooked underneith the car

Touch a wire from the battery + to the other terminal of the valve. Listen for a clicking sound. If no sound valve is bad. Replace valves(s). If this doesn't lead you to the trouble it's probably a mechanical problem inside the differential. However most likely there would other noises.
