Drive train locked up while driving in 5th gear. Vehicle would not move unless clutch was engaged will in neutral.


Hi Tom:
If you're lucky, a linkage has become disengaged. Trace from the gearshift to the transmission.
What happens to the gearshift lever when you try to shift?
If it won't move and the linkage is not disconnected, try to manually move the shift levers where they enter the trans.
Also if you have a custom shifter it is possible that a pin has slipped.
Have fun chasing this one.

Loud noise when 4 high button is pressed while driving in 2 high


engaging 4wd at speed is not recommended as the syncro set up is for low speed operation only Using 4wd on hard surfaces especially with your tyres does not allow the wheels to slip and so you get torque wind up in the transmission. This prevents the gears from disengaging as there is excessive load on the teeth. To unload the wind up either drive on a grass/ gravel/ slippery surface or stop and allow the vehicle to run backwards. IT all amounts to driving technique and knowing when and where to engage 4wd. There are plenty of books /magazines that explain the damage that will be done to the vehicle running gear if run in 4wd for long periods on hard surface roads.

4wd wont engage on my 86 bronco II. Push button 4wd isn't working and I can't find the fuse (inline) to check if it's blown.


Engage the 4wd and go underneath and tap the 4x4 motor to engage it, it is probably just stuck. More than likely its not a fuse.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont come out of four wheel drive unles it sits over night, what can I do?


With any four wheel drive you should always stop and back up ten feet when ever taking it out four wheel drive. This helps to unlock the gears so they can disengage and helps ensure that it isn't still in 4WD.

Slips out of gear when in 4WD


Check the oil level in the shift on the fly (sotf) part of the axle thats the left of the front one - it holds about 1 pint of gear oil and gets missed at service time .

97 Ford Power Stroke, starting problem.


Does the starter engage the drive gear with the action of a solenoid? It may not be pushing (pulling) the gear far enough. There may be a slipping ring gear on the flex-plate. If you pull the starter again, you can try to see if the ring moves in and out or appears to be slipping around on the flex-plate. The flex plate could be loose on the crankshaft. In any case, the engine or the transmission would have to come out. Check the starter engagement before removing the torus and flex-plate.

Transmission wont pull in reverse and takes a second to catch in drive overdrive and second gear


you need it rebuilt. lol the clutches are worn out in forward gears, producing the late engagement and slipping, and reverse is burnt out. The fluid probably isnt red anymore, check to find out, but it needs to be removed and serviced before the etire transmission gives out.
