Four wheel drive in cold

I have a '07 chevy colorado and recently have been having a problem with the four wheel drive. Anyone familiar with the colorado knows when you push the four high button it flashes a couple of times then engages. When it is real cold out and i push the button it will just keep blinking and will never engage After i drive it for about 30 minutes it works fine. Wondering if it's just the cold or something more serious if its just the cold is there anything i can do to fix this

It is due to the cold weather,The fluid is to thick when cold for the actuator to engage the 4wd.

Probably find the torque converter driving the four wheel drive has seized and as the tyres are not exactly the same diameter, they are wearing badly.

2000 blazer 4 wheel drive problem


It's most likely the "four wheel drive actuator" This is located on the front differential housing. It's cylindrical shaped and has a large hex (about
1-1/4") and two wires coming out of it. Usually they short out and blow the fuse but, I've also seen where they just quit working and sometimes they just get slow to work. The "actuator" has a heating element in it and it warms up, some sort gas, causing it to expand thus engaging the front wheels. In cold weather it may take a minute or so for it to engage, so put in four wheel drive and wait for a bit and see what happens.

Only the passenger side wheels will turn in four wheel drive high or low. Why?


you have whats called open differintials. this makes cornering easier and reduces tire wear. if you truely want all four wheels to turn you need to have lockers installed. these can be found in most 4x4 mags, but are not really easy to put in
