SOURCE: 2002 kia 4x4 wont go into 4 wheel drive

Hello
A VERY COMMON FAULT!
Kia us a dim design that works on air, so the light on the dash may light up green...mine does...but no 4x4.
Test one, look inside the engine bay,(2Litre petrol) on your left hand side, to the left of the actual engine is the solenoid device that "switches on" the vacuum to the front hubs. This is easier that you would think. If you look at the left side of the engine, there are two pipes coming out (left side) one is thick (break system. DONT touch) one is thinner and soft rubber. Follow this tube, it goes into a small black cannister which is a resvoir and one way valve...the tube then outputs into another device (solenoid) which has 2 wires on. The tube then splits under this in two. The test is simple, with the engine running, and 4 wheel drive engaged pull the tube apart after the solenoid. Put your finger there you should feel a nice strong ****. If it does **** put it back on. If it does not **** it needs to be removed and cleaned. This is simple to unbolt and all you do is pull the rubber bung of the bottom, and the two tubes and spray break cleaner inside. reassamble until you get to feel the vaccum.

test 2 Now look behind each wheel, you will see a thick hose wrapped in a spring, this is the break system, do not touch this. There is a thinner flexible hose attached behind the wheel, you will notice that these have no securing system just push fit. Remove each of the in turn and test for vacuum.

Leaks here are common and easy to fix.

The bad news if you have vacuum, and still no 4 wheel drive one or both front wheel hubs has a leak, and the bad news is, it needs a garage to fix it, and to replace the seal a £5 part you have to ruin a £100 part.

Test the vaccum, pray. Otherwise ask, doe you really need to spend £250 to sort this?

Good luck

2003 kia sorento with the auto 4x4 while driving it kicks in and out of 4x4 almost like an engine miss and makes a clunking sound it goes into 4 low just fine any ideas? thanks in advance


check that the actuator is moving the gear dog into position fully for complete engagement
it indicates that the connection is not complete and the pressure on the teeth is making if jump out of the engagement
have an accredited transmission shop check that adjustment
the symptoms indicate a failure to properly engage --adjustment--or worn teeth of the dog--- new parts -- or misalignment of the shafts --- new bearings and parts
have a proper diagnosis done first as replacement parts gets to be an expensive job

My kia soernto 4x4 light flishing


I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high
