1997 isuzu rodeo 4x4 problem

When i shifted into four wheel drive today to get out of a snow pile, only my rear wheels were spinning. i looked up the problem and i feel it may be that my hubs are not locked, i have an S model rodeo and says it still has manual locking hubs, how do u lock the hubs if this is the problem?

Only the "S" model has the manual locking hubs.
Auto locking hubs look like normal center on a whel; only bigger. Manual locking hubs woul have and indent in the middle of hub and a raised ridge to grab with your finger to rotate the hub into the locked position. There should be some writting on the hub edge telling you which way to turn to lock and unlock.

is that it.
?????
there are only 2 ways, 2 lines

I have a 97 isuzu rodeo 4x4 v6, the other day I switched from two wheel into four wheel high and after trying to shift into two wheel again it won't but shifts between 4 hi n 4 low


the operators guide tells tells you, dont do that.
its not AWD, its part time system. like jeeps.
if not on ice or dirt stay out of 4wd. its only for that.
never on dry pavement.
and the dangers to you and transfer case.
im sure your car is not AWD or Full time 4wd.

so this page applies, (posted over 100 times but no one searches)
your car has no center differential, so..... stop expecting one.

so drive to dirt../sand, gravel or grass and shift out steer gently.
or jack up one tire, and shift out.
2 choices to recovery,
post 101..... LOL

How to determine or test why four wheel drive stop working


Check all applicable fuses. If you don't find a bad fuse, you would need to check the 4x4 actuator underneath

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!

How does the 4x4 drive work


normaly you drive in 2 wheel dive rear whee lls driving jeep
when you select 4 wheel high or 4 wheel low you engage all 4 wheels bring intthe front axle and all 4 wheels drive high box for slippery roads ice snow etc
important low box only for extreme conditions such as heavy mud deep snow etc
LOW MUST BE SELECTED WHEN STOPPED OTHER WISE DAMAGE TO TRANSMISSION
hope this helps

make sure your in nutural, or park then if you have hub locks turn them to locking position. then shift small shifter if available into 4 wheel low or high. or may have just a push button to engauge. then shift into low or high. then you may use your regular stick to shift or just shift into drive w automatic.

Four wheel drive locking up in tight turn. loud clicking from front


Hopefully the CV joints have not been damaged, What you are experiencing is called torque bind, it happens when you drive on dry pavement in four wheel drive. Unless you have an all wheel drive system that has a way of allowing the front and rear wheels to slip or turn at different speeds, a standard four wheel drive system will destroy itself if it is used on a non slippery surface. Never drive on good traction surface unless you have selected 2WD, 4WD is only for snow, ice and gravel

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


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.
