Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 19997 NISSAN truck 4x4 and i do not drive it often. It seems as though the brakes are grabbing in the front of the vehicle or the hubs are slowing the vehicle down. I am able to sit idle with the truck in neutral on a slight decline and the vehicle will not move forward. When i put the truck in reverse, the truck responds sluggishly to move. Suggestions? Also the vehicle has had the hubs in a manual locking position for a couple months but the vehicle has not had much use.

My 1997 GMC jimmy is making a loud noise it seems to be coming from the passenger side front tire I check the hub it spinng good


If the problem is at the wheel, two possible causes are a bad wheel bearing or worn brake pads. Both of these noises will only be experienced with the vehicle on the ground and moving. Also, if this is a FWD truck and it only occurs when accelerating, it can also be caused by a failing drive axle or bad transfer case bearing.

Check all the plastic cowlings and air dams to make sure they are not loose and rattling in the wind when you drive down the road. Check the exhaust system for any broken or loose hangers. Hope this helps.

Push the 4x4 button, as you drive there is a bang sound from the front end, sounds like the drivers side where the noise is coming from, Under no load not so noticeable. Universals seem fine, could it be...


I just purchased a 1992 Ranger XLT and had taken it into a shop to have some alignment and brake work done before giving it to my grandson for his 18th birthday. Upon picking it up, I noticed a similar banging noise coming from the front end mostly when making a hard-right turn. I took it back to the shop and upon further inspection was told that I needed to replace the hubs as the drivers side hub lock had ceased up (the 4X4 lock knob) and if they weren't replaced soon, it could cause major problems with the axle. I was told it would cost around $400 and since they're sold in pairs, you may as well replace both even though only one needs it.

I hope this helps.

I have a 1993 ford f150 4x4 i cant get it out of 4 wheel drive it still drive in 4wd how do i fix this problem


if it has automatic lock in hubs only!! start truck, put truck in neutral, push button for 2x2 shift into reverse,back up 5to 10 feet,truck should shift back into 2x2 automatically. shift into drive and the 4x4 light should go off. if you have manual lock hubs you''ll need to unlock those manually on the 2 front wheels.w/truck in neutral and emergency brake on or someone holdling brake inside truck,go to front and rotate the locking hubs to front tire or wheels in centerof hub to free wheel.they will be marked,or should be. if not,then try turning the center of hub switch counter clockwise until it stops turning,then go to passenger side and turn it counter clockwise. thank you for choosing fixya.
