SOURCE: Front wheels do not turn

I did run the vehicle on the lift in 4wd. The actuator is trying to engage. I removed the right side axle housing and found the shim on the end of the shaft had fallen out of place. The small roller bearing in the shaft was damaged as well. This may have happended on a previous axle seal replacement. A new shim, and bearing fixed the problem. Thanks for our reply

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive (auto locking hubs) seems to be trying to engage.

I had the same thing happen. The automatic locking hubs are faulty, causing one or both hubs to try to engage or disengage onto the front driveshaft. This makes the clicking noise and loud clunking that you hear. You may notice your steering pulling to one side of the road,because one hub is locked in. Replace the automatic hubs with new ones, do not try to fix the old ones. I liked the
convience of automatic hubs but replaced mine with manual hubs, there just way more reliable.

I think you have a separate actuator on the front diff which operates off vacuum. The vacuum can is under the battery tray and any lines leaking can cause this issue.

Transfercase engages but hubs will not lock 97 s-10


This is a difficult problem to solve without trouble shooting alot of things. There is sometimes a electrical relay for the locking hubs test it. Also sometimes you have to be able to back up to engage/disengage the hubs. Make sure your transfer case is full of the proper oil and that the driveshafts are not loose at all. If all of these items work properly and the hubs will not engage still i would suggest checking into a repair shop and finding out the cost of hub replacement. Then check with your local parts store and find out the price of new hubs and a Haynes manual. The manual can walk you through step by step on item location and repair techniques.

4x4 indicator light flashes continuesly


Hi, on the front axle is the actuator for the free wheel hub. This actuator works with vacuum. You will need to establish if you have sufficient vacuum on the actuator. You should have vacuum on one side of the actuator in 4x2 mode and then the vacuum should change to the other side when 4x4 mode is selected. If your vacuum is fine and the actuator moves far enough, then you should look at the freewheel sensor situated on the front diff. The sensor might be faulty which gives the control unit the wrong info.

When I shift to 4 wheel drive the indicator light comes on but the front wheels do not lock. If you manually lock the front hubs the 4 wheels lock and work fine. what is the fix for this problem.


The autolocking hubs are vacuum actuated. If they don't lock then you most likely have a vacuum leak somewhere. This usually occurs where the vacuum line (black rubber hose) attaches to the knuckle on the inside of each front wheel. These hoses get dry and crack. Another simptom of this leak is the AC changing from front vents to defrost vents when you switch to 4x4 so check for this. You could also have a vacuum leak in the hub diaphragm or one of the orings in the hub could be cracked or broken. If you cannot find a vacuum leak then the vacuum solonoid valve may be bad.

Do you have the front hubs disengaged and the shift lever in 2wheel drive. If this is the case, the tyres will fight against each other while turning on bitumen.
