Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo

1996 Rodeo Isuzu - I put it in Winter Drive and now 1 rear wheel

Doesn't spin, or it's really slow compared to the other rear wheel tire.

We had ice/snow here yesterday and I put the Isuzu in Winter Drive for a few minutes and then came to a complete stop and now it will hardly move because the driver rear wheel won't turn (or is barely turning), while the rear passenger wheel is spinning like crazy. It works in reverse fine.

Based on another similar problem and it was fixed driving backwards, that's exactly what I did. I drove the Rodeo backwards and then would stop and put it in gear and did this for 10 minutes until I worked the 4x4 gear loose and now all four wheels run. I must say, I created quite a sight driving backwards in a Wal-Green's parking lot for 10 minutes.

Tip

Winter driving tips.


WINTER TIRES
As a mechanic and a shop owner I get to try out various types of vehicles during test drives. So we get to try out different types of tires too. We learn what works well and what doesn't.
Don't kid yourself, all season tires don't come close to a quality winter tire on ice and snow. And when you add studs to a winter tire it makes them incredibly good. I hope they allow studded tires where you drive.
All season tires work well when they can contact the road surface directly, but when isolated from the road by ice and snow they just don't work. The compound of the tire is generally harder to resist summer heat that wears tires out and with the colder temperatures they just get stiffer.
The winter tire compound is a little softer which allows a better contact patch with whatever is under it and the larger tread gaps pinch the snow to gain traction.
Another big misconception with tires is putting them on the drive wheels only.
OK, why not you ask? Well lets start with one of the most common vehicles on the road today, a family sedan, front wheel drive.
On these cars your engine and transmission is front mounted, so a good part of the weight is front biased. So that puts lots of weight on your front wheels. Weight =traction, right? So you put your winter tires on the front and your already used all seasons on the back.
Imagine now cruising down the freeway in 4 inches of fresh snow, "man these winter tires are awesome !" But you need to brake in a hurry for a deer coming out. Well those fresh winters do their job OK but the lightweight back end of your car hasn't the traction to handle the maneuver, the back end is sliding around sideways...hang on to it!!!
Well you get the picture now. You need all 4.

DONT SPIN YOUR TIRES

How many times do you see it each slippery day? You know, the drivers wheels howling for mercy as they attempt to accelerate.
Many vehicles today are equipped with traction control, there is a good reason for this accessory to your vehicle. If you can accelerate without spinning you will get moving faster than someone who is, and under more control too. A spinning tire will often create a hot spot under itself, melt the ice or snow and make it even more slippery. You even run the risk of getting yourself stuck in the rut you create.
A spinning tire also will go sideways easier, as it loses traction it also loses some direction.
Granpa said to me sometimes...slow down and go faster ...I now have seen the truth in it.

My 1999 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 four wheel disk rear wheels will not come off even without the lug nuts, why?


Because the wheels are corroded to the hub, causing it to seize. Leave one nut threaded on just a few turns (so your wheel doesn't go flying), get a big hammer and hit the inside of the tire with a good solid shot. That wheel will break loose pretty quick. Good luck!

I have a 2006 isuzu rodeo and i cant get it out of four wheel drive low i have try to put it in 2 wheel drive high and four wheel drive high but it still coomes up on dash that its four wheel drive low...


I have 2002 and I find that you have to come to a complete stop, put it in reverse momentarily, and that should take care of it. Cheaper than going to the dealer and having them really fix it!!!

2005 Kia Sorento - on dry pavement going forward in 4 wheel drive at slow speed turning left the rear wheel driver side seems to be trying to go reverse, can hear is catching or locking on the road,...


you shouldnt use 4x4 on dry road its made for pulling or snow mud etc type situations if you feel its ok then check tire size are they all the same size tires and the pressure all the same if you dont have a check eng light on then there is nothing wrong with the 4x4 but dont forget all wheel drive works with abs tcm if one wheel spins faster or slower then the rest it puts on the abs to slow it down or the trans shifts up to speed it up so there are a few things to check

My 4 wheel drive isn't working. why are my tires spinning on the littlest patch of ice?


Hi Correia,
Having four wheel drive built onto a vehicle gives traction through all four wheels, meaning that if one of the four wheels looses traction all the driving motion is directed through that spinning wheel. When driving on snow, ice or mud, gently does it all the time! Gentle acceleration and slow down using gentle gear changes. Use the brakes as little as possible. Remember if you lock up the brakes and the vehicle begins to slide you'll have no control at all! Traction control is entirely different than four wheel drive. Traction control will control any wheel which begins to slip and thereby keep you in control.
