I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

No probably not, first check the fuse for the 4wd in the fuse box if that's OK its likely the actuator on the front axle..........providing the shifter handle moves to the proper location and if its push button the lights light in the switch when selected...the actuator plugs into the wiring harness and screws into the front differential.an easy remove and replace part even for a novice.

solenoid switch that engages the 4WD more likely will need replacing. fairly cheap to fix replace.

Hi there! Check out this link.

this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

Was driving my 2004mountaineer tool light came on and jumped out gear now won't do nothin bug grind


There are several possibilities. If you have a 4x4, the unit could be between the 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive modes. There is also a 4 wheel drive low and 4 wheel drive high mode. On some models the selector switch is similar in appearance to the blower motor selector switch. Someone could reach for the blower speed and turn the 4 wheel switch instead.

Another possibility can be a burned out led indicator switch on models which use electric shift solenoids to position the drivetrain between 2 and 4 wheel drive. The voltage gets messed up because of the burned out bulb and the shift plunger does not go into the correct position.

I have a burning rubber smell coming from left rear on my 2001 silverado after driving


You may have a stuck brake shoe. The smell is more likely a burning carbon smell, which would be the break pad itself. You will need to crawl under and see if any visible burn marks or burned wires are present. Outside that, move to the actual break. 1 possible sign would be large amount of "dust" on the wheel and around the actual break, more than with the other 3 wheels.

Burning smell by back tire on driver side


This smell may be one of two things, first take a look at the exhaust to make sure you didnt get a plastic bag or something like that stuck on the hot exhaust and its burning off, that would cause the smell and i have seen this many times. if theres nothing on the exhaust then the next thing would be the brake . jack the car up after a drive and you smell the burning and see if the wheel spins freely, if the wheel is hard to turn then you have a brake problem in that wheel and you will need to remove it and take a look at the brakes, if the wheel spins then still remove the wheel and check for a leaking wheel cylinder as if that leaks on the hot drum and shoes it will cause a smell. and could run low on fluid or blow out and then you would loose most of the braking. good day.

The van smells and the lug nuts are gettign burning hot after it is driven for only 10 minutes.


my best guess would be a brake pad or caliper that is sticking on the "on" position. This will cause the brake to generate a high amount of heat and it will heat up the lugnuts. the smell should smell like burning brakes because that is what is happening. the smell itself is hard to describe . if it gets extremely hot you will see smoke coming from the brake that is not working correctly. if it is one brake doing it the steering should also "pull" to the side of the problem. right wheel brake dragging will cause the vehicle to "pull" or verr to the right side.

I have a grinding noise near the back drivers side wheel it comes and goes sometimes whilst driving and driving at low speeds it also happens when i go round corners. There is a burning smell near rear...


Sounds like a broken bearing. If your wheel is beginning to wobble it will make contact with the brake shoes and this will them very hot to the point of giving off a burning smell

I have a 2003 Yukon XL that will switch from Auto 4 wheel drive to 4 high or 4 low on its own. The service 4 wheel drive indicator comes on when it is in 4 wheel drive. The fluids in the transfer case...


My 2003 yukon xl does the exact same thing. Sorry that I do not have a solution, but I figure its the same reason the daytime running lights always burn-out. The SUV in general has be an absolute POS and I will never buy another.

FRONT TIRES AND ENGINE.


Hi,

The tire noise will be due to the car needing a wheel alignment, just take it down to your local tyre dealer and they will check it for you if you are not sure.

As for the burning smell, if it's coming from the engine it could be a simple oil leak leaking onto the exhaust or could be more serious like worn rings or valve guides.

Good luck.
