I engage the four wheel drive in my 2005 Ford F-150 when we had a snow storm this week.Now when switching out of fourwheel drive the transmission wines until you switch it back to fourwheel drive high.Tried putting transmission in reverse & switch from 4wd to 2wd High.that works until you reach 25 mph & starts wining again. Any suggestions before taking to dealership.

The four wheel drive uses vacuum hub locks. there is a vacuum solenoid on the passenger firewall in front of the battery box. sounds like you need a updated solenoid and possibly one or both hub locks. what happens is the old style solenoid vent allows water to get in and the hub locks freeze or stop working because of the water. the new style has a cover over the vent to prevent water from getting in.

My 2005 Ford F-150 was running fine and last week I had to use the four wheel drive a couple of times . Science then when I take off from a stop I gent a loud Chungking noise with a jolt until I get moving...


Something has let loose in the transfer case. Probably bearings. Better get another or have that one fixed. Keep driving it and the case will blow a part. This could damage the transmission also.

I don't have the owners manual, and have never owned a 4x4 in the past, as stupid as this sounds i don't know the proper procedure to engage 4 wheel drill hi


you have a lever or switch that engages 2wheel normal driving 4 wheel high for wet slippery conditions ,then you have four wheel low for real muddy and deep snow conditions
normally change from 2 wheel to four wheel high on the move .important nearly all 4 wheel drive vehicles must be stopped to engage low otherwise do damage to transmission

Fourwheel drive works but when i take out of fourwheel drive i have a howling noise in front end but when i put it back in fourwheel drive it goes away


There is a TSB for replacing the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) solenoid, as the 1st design can ingest water and introduce it to the IWEs, causing low vacuum, and the gears for the IWE are grinding.

http://my.voyager.net/~sscully/file_tsb06_08_15.pdf

To cure this until you get the new IWE solenoid ordered and installed, pull the vacuum lines from the IWEs and plug them. This will leave the IWE gears engaged, so they are not trying round off the teeth.

There are 2 lines to the IWE, 1 is the vacuum line, the other is a vent line, that routes into the engine compartment, with an open end, make sure you pull and plug the correct line.

This will have the front hubs engaged to a dead axle, so it will decrease mpg, and you will feel a bit of loss of power, but better than ruining a set of IWEs that will cost ~500.00 to replace.

The transmission is automated along with the 4 wheel drive the only way to force 4 wheel drive is to push the switch thats located next to the shifter that says ECT Snow.

ECT snow feature Toyota Highlander 2005


Turn vehicle on, with foot on brake put vehicle in NEUTRAL. Still holding brakes move 4x4 switch to 4 wheel drive, it should engage. The ECT snow is just s feather that make the transmission take off in 2nd gear so its not a fast take off and you wouldn't skid. Good Luck

My 2004 F-150 Ford Truck will not engage into 4 wheel drive low.


I am going to ask a dumb question....do you have it in neutral and the brake mashed when you switch to 4WD LOW? I believe that is what my book says to do.
