I have a 2001 jeep cherokee with 4 wheel drive the front right tires is making a grinding noise and when im driving it feels like the car is in 4 wheel drive I put it in 4 wheel drive and the took it out...


DO not use 4wd on dry pavement. do not. its for
ice, snow,or dirt.
if you do that and make a turn , it winds up the driveline. damage.
put in the dirt, at side of road, and get it out of 4wd.
read the manual on part time 4wd, its not AWD and has no center diferental to drive on hard pavement.

see stop driving. ..here

2004 Chevy 2500 HD I dont' know if it is a transfer case problem or not, but i was driving in snow the other day, put it in 4 wheel drive, and a loud pop happened when it went in. It then began popping...


How many miles are on the vehicle?and how often do you use the 4x mode.The worst thing a person does is not use it at all for years and then expect it to work perfectly.I always use mine even on a dry pavement going down the freeway,about once a month ill activate it and drive for 5-10 minutes with it on.Does not hurt it if its a somewhat straight piece of road or a wet surface is better.

On a 1999 pathfinder, what 4 wheel gear do I use in the snow


Unless your climbing big hills, I'd leave it in 4 high, for normal roads. If you happen to get stuck, better to shift to low, to get out, then when back on highway, or main roads use high. Remember, 4 wheel drive might get you out of the snow or whatever better, but it will slide sideways, and stop the same as 2 wheel drive, so don't think you can go faster than those ahead of you with 2 wheel drive, if roads are bad. Sorry, I know, you know better, but I see more 4 wheel drives in the ditches around here in Canada, than 2 wheel drives, in fact I've seen 2 beside each other in same ditch, as I slowed down for ice patch, and drove past them. Yes I did check to make sure they were o.k. though.

My jeep will not switch back out of 4 wheel drive and is load while in 4 wheel drive. I am switching while driving down the road is this right??


yes but sometimes you have to pump the gas while driving to get it out of four wheel. you might even have to stop and put the reverse.

hope this helps
please rate good.

I need to find out if I need to activate the 4 wheel drive for snow driving on the freeway. I have a 1986 Grand Cherokee. V8 5.2, with abs. There is a lever for lo/hi but I think that is used only for...


That is up to your preference in my opinion. 4 wheel may give you a little more traction, but it can also lead you into a false sense of security. If heavy snow, and you need to get through it, you can only go as fast as the guy ahead of you anyway right? Up here in Ontario Canada, I passed by many a 4 wheel drive in the ditch, because they assumed they would have a better chance on icy roads than me, with 2 wheel drive. Remember this, no matter what you decide, you may be able to go a little faster in 4 wheel, compared to 2 wheel, but when you have to hit the brakes, or go into a spin, 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, your not going to be able to stop it any faster. Your going to use more gas in 4 wheel too. Yes there will be times when you need to use it, but like I said, when it goes sideways or you have to lock up the brakes, because you were pushing the envelope too much,? At least with 2 wheel, you feel the back end break loose, to warn you how slippery it is, and you may not feel that soon enough, with 4 wheel. Just my opinion, but maybe some 4 wheelers have a different opinion. It's just like the experts from the skid school said up here about mandatory snow tires being talked about. If putting snow tires on your car is going to make you drive a little faster, your defeating the purpose.
