sounds like your axle isn't engaging. Check to make sure there is power to the axle servo.

Ppm is very high

Do you mean RPM? The vehicle is idling too high? It's probably a vacuum air leak---check all your air lines to make sure they are connected to the right place, and not cracked or broken.

2001 Ford Taurus low Idle at stop lights

I would make sure all connections on your filter housing is tight..Make sure theres nothing disconnected far as vacuum lines..If you have had your oil changed lately,,check the two lines that hook right where the air filter is..The jiffy lube places,,love to leave them off..If all is good i would suspect the idle air control valve

2002 ford f150 four wheel drive front hubs not going into fourwheel drive

Is the system ESOF ( Electronic Shift On the Fly ) or MSOF ( Mechanical Shift On the Fly ) ?

If you have already tested to find the front drive shaft locks into place, and the front axle is the cause, looks to the front vacuum disconnect shift motor.
Item #10 in the parts diagram below :

Close up of it ( this is a picture from another person's bracket that broke ) :

Chances are the vacuum lines to the vacuum disconnect motor are cracked, the vacuum solenoids are not working correctly, or the vacuum to the solenoids is having an issue ( the reservoir ) :
Vacuum diagram for the shift motor

The pink line is vacuum for 2WD operation ( unlocks the axle ) the light blue vacuum line is for 4WD operation ( locks the axle ).

You can test right at the vacuum disconnect motor with a vacuum gauge with the motor running. Unplug the shift motor, and check for vacuum right at the motor.

Could be the shift motor has a damaged diaphragm and not holding vacuum or has water in it ( saw that 1 time ).

Start with checking for vacuum. Also check the fuses for the vacuum solenoids, the power is always at the solenoid, ground is switched on and off by the GEM ( Generic Electronics Module ) to operate them

Rear air not switching between hot and cold, any suggestions?

the real air switch on the dash, check and make sure the vacuum lines have vacuum on 1 of them, the other goes to the rear air assy. usually that switch is going bad internally and wont hold enough vacuum to send back, esle it is the vacuum motor in the rear air.

Four wheel drive lights come on but no four wheel drive

The light comes on indicating that the transfer case is engaged in 4wd, but that doesn't mean the hubs are locked. If you have automatic locking hubs, you should check to make sure they are working correctly. This GM vehicle may be equipped with vacuum locking hubs... meaning there is a vacuum line running from the transfer case selector to the hubs on each side. The vacuum makes the hubs lock into place. If those vacuum lines are damaged or missing, they wont lock. If you have electronic locking hubs, they may need to be replaced. Good luck.

I need a vacuum line schematic for a 2003 Chevy Astro Van. My AC only blows out of the defroster vents. I've replaced 2 lines so far but it has not fixed the problem yet.

Replace the complete heater control vacuum line over the motor with rubber vacuum tubing.
The heater vacuum line connects on the drivers side of the engine halfway back on the intake manifold.Run the new line to the heater vac connection at the passenger side at the right front in the engine compartment.
I change 2 a week....this should be where your problem is.

What will make the engine idle surge up and down when sitting?? if you give it a bit more gas it evens out .It turns over like a champ but once it starts the idle is up and down,although when driving it...

definitely a vacuum leak. do a visual inspection to make sure all of the vacuum lines are connected. if possible, use a service manual to make sure they are all in the right places. make sure the intake manifold bolts are tight, as well as the throttle body/carburetor bolts. an easy way to check for vacuum leaks is to use a can of carburetor cleaner. DO NOT DO THIS WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT!! let the engine idle, and pray the carb cleaner around the vacuum lines and fittings. if you spray a leak, you will hear the idle go up very suddenly, or it may start to stumble and try dying. but it will be very noticeable when you do find the leak with this method.
