Right front wheel seems to stick when vehicle is in drive.

Is my truck stuck in 4 wheel drive. The switch in the truck dosen't light up any more. when in drive the right front side dips downward and feels like it's dragging. I noticed that the center bolt was loose and tighted it back but nothing changed.

Does it feel like its draging when you try to back up? and what do you mean by center bolt? do you mean the big nut on axel in center of wheel? i am going to take a guess here and say its the break caliber piston, where the break pads are, is not releasing from break rotor. witch means its like you got the breaks on. jack wheel off the ground and see if you can spin the wheel by hand. if you cannot spin it that might be it. you also said you tighten axel nut (at least i think thats what you ment)tells me maybe something else is going on here like axel bearing is tied up witch can happen too. when you get wheel off ground and it will not turn by hand pull wheel off and try to push caliber piston back in with a large screwdriver wedge it between the pad and rotor. sould go back fairly easy, you don't have to go back a whole lot just anought to get a gap between rotor and pad then see if you can turn it, if not then it must be wheelbearing. if wheel turns after you do this than caliber is bad and needs replaced. its not stuck in 4x4 even if it was it would not be doing what you discribed.hope this helps.

The indicator light for the four wheel drive stays on when disengaged from four wheel drive


There are sensors in modern AWD / 4WD vehicles and if it is truly disengaged, is probably just a bad sensor. Anyway, without the year, make and model vehicle - it's hard to get into specifics or help from someone that knows which vehicle you're asking abut.

2002 Kia Sportage 4X4 Just purchased. First big snow it seems the 4 Hi and 4 Low are not working as the front axle spins but the front wheels don't when I am stuck. Also is this vehicle rear wheel drive...


Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.

My 2000 chevy blazer is stuck in 4lo any ideas what the problem is


Try starting the vehicle , place the emergency brake on , switch from drive to nuetral. with engine running try to move the 4wd handle. If your handle moves in and out of 4 wheel drive and the selector handle moves into 2wd you need to drive the vehicle to get it out of 4 wheel low otherwise the 4 wheel drive solenoid may be stuck . This is located on the front axle . round with a vacuum line coming off it. Check the vacuum line at the solenoid or it may be the solenoid. Gook luck with your fix

4 wheel drive will not engage (1995 S10 Blazer)


I had this same problem a few years ago. In my case I didn't use the 4 Wheel Drive very often and the tranfer would hang in 2 Wheel. I fixed mine by tapping on the transfer case with a hammer while my wife switched back and forth from 2 Wheel to 4 Wheel.

Help... My four wheel drive High or Low will not engage on my 1995 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition. This is engaged "on the fly". The light comes on indicating they are engaged but they it is not.


Try at full stop in neutral switching to 4 wheel auto ,give it a few seconds and if you don,t here it engage try putting it into reverse and then back into neutral and then into drive. If still dosen,t work tranny switch is likely sticking . service or repair.
