Power drive delays the shift points for upshift of the automatic transmission. It will degrade fuel economy, but you'll get more peppy performance.

Winter drive will only engage if the vehicle speed is below a certain threshold (I think 23 miles per hour) - and only if the vehicle is in Reverse, Neutral, or Drive. It causes the automatic transmission to start off in 3rd gear (rather than 1st gear). The purpose is to provide power, but not torque to the tires. In winter driving, torque increases the probablility of the tires spinning. The vehicle will seem to be VERY sluggish when winter driving is engaged - which is completely normal behaviour. It will automatically disengage when vehicle speed increases above the threshold.

The vehicle also features the Torque on Demand (TOD) 4-wheel-drive system produced by BorgWarner.

I just bought a 2002 trooper, 142k miles. Where is the transmission / power steering dip stick ?


The transmission doesn't have a dip stick you will have to take some where and have them check it, unless you feel comfortable doing it your self. The power steering on the other hand. If you pop the hood look around you should see a black cap that says powersteering fluid, when you take the cap off it should have a dip stick attached to the lid if not there will be a fluid level mark on the side of the tank, which you took the lid off of.

We have a 1998 Trooper that had the same problem. The fix was an electronic switch for the 4WD - a vacuum sensor - on the front axle that just plugs in. You can see it - if you look under the car from the front, it's mounted in the middle of the front axle. It cost $175 from the dealer. We had somebody install it for $50. Don't know where you live, but they are exposed and can corrode. That's what happened to ours. Good luck - hope it's the same problem. This was an easy fix, and we were pleased.
