Question about Cars & Trucks
I recently hired a Mitsubishi camper van in Australia and on the first day I put it into 4 wheel drive, drove for about 200 metres and then changed back to 2 wheel drive. it appears that the transmission stuck in 4 wheel drive even though the gear lever was in 2 wheel drive. I continued my journey not aware that the gear box was stuck in 4wd and the gear box failed. Has anyone had a similar experience. Thee were no warning lights to show the gearbox was in 4wd.
never drive, part time 4wd on pavement, unless said pavement
is ice or snow covered.
only AWD allows pavement (tires direct upon) driviing.
part time 4wd is for offroad , off pavement driving,
this is because 4wd has no center differential.
and with out such, winds up the drive line fast. and breaks it.
wiki states (no year stated by you)
Part-time four-wheel drive was standard on all models. to 1991
4H (high-range full time four-wheel drive), 4HLc (high-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential) and 4LLc (low-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential
so do not use LOCKED on pavement. on active track. only 4H
the wiki states the Super-select is retained 2006 to present.
Super-Select 4WD II
read the glove box manual under 4wd

if the shift is being made and the car is in gear it will not change ,in some cases it is necesary to reverse a few times to allow shifts to occur if this still fails you could have a sticky solonoid ,these are mounted on the r/f inner guard there are two of the next to each other make sure there is vacume at the solonoids as the car will allways fail in 4wd mode it requires vacume to allow it to disengage the front diff on start up,that is why there is a grinding noise if you switch off the motor and free wheel to a stop the front diff tries to engage
