As long as the tires are the same size then there will be no problem.

    First of all running bald tires on any vehicle is dangerous regardless of all wheel drive, However It should not cause a transmission problem from that small of a size difference. It sounds to me that the transmission already has a valve body issue and needs to be gone through. any use of it at this point will cause further damage.

Can i manualy take it out of 4x4


Those older fords you have to put the 4x4 selector into 2H or 2 High on the floor shifter. Then go to the front tires and in the very center of the tire there will be a knob that say Locked and Unlocked. Turn the knob to unlocked on both sides. Then you will not have front wheel dragging on the drive train and only the rear wheels will be the drive tire. TO put it back in 4x4. Turn the knob back to locked on each front tire and put the truck in 4H or 4 High to get 4x4. Only use 4L or 4Low when your stuck to prevent spinning your tires with full power.


Now if your has the automatic locking hubs I would switch them out with manual ones because the automatic ones were problematic where they get stuck or not work at all. It requires replacing the locking hub assembly which isn't that hard to do.

Hi there:
Your VIN code refer at one 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 4.0L 6-cyl. Quadra-Trac, then, according with this, you must pay attention to the Standard tire size (in case of different tires in front and rear the dimensional data are valid for driving or rear wheels):
Standard tire size: P 215/75 R 15
Tire width (mm): 215
Tire sidewall factor: 75
Rim size (in): 15

Total wheel diameter (mm / in): 704 / 27.7

Hope this helps.

Wil putting two size tires on a isuzuvehicross make the transferre case go out.


Yes...
The tire sizes are important on any 4X4 vehicle... IF you engage the 4X4 ... or is you have an AWD vehicle...

If the tires are different sizes , front and rear... then the front and rear axles will turn at different speeds... not in sync with the gearing of the transfer case.

Unless this vehicle is being driven on snow , ice or mud.... while in 4x4 mode... this is very bad.... for axles and transfer case...

Honda passport 1998 problems 4x4 . I have noticed that the 4x4 lights on dash are flashing and when i went to use it i heard a click but the front tires arent taking the 4x4 . the last thing i did was put...


sounds like u are having front drive line problems. the press button 4x4s are not a good idea to have. transfer cases go out very easily. so check front drive line.

2000 jeep gc laredo 4x4 4.7 auto The front end shakes


if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

1. Are car battery posts different sizes? 2. Does tire wear(uneven)affect 4wd to 2wd transfer?


battery posts are different sizes. The positive one is larger.
Extreme wear of two front tires and new ones on the rear (or any combination similar) may or may not affect how your transfer case engages but it will put unwanted stress on the transfer case and driveline which will eventually wear or break something (more worn tires need to turn faster than less worn ones) If you have quadra trac, it will burn out the viscous coupler in the transfer case. On 4x4 vehicles it is always best to replace all four tires at the same time and rotate them to avoid any becoming more worn than the others. Tires must also be the exact same size.

Tacoma 4x4 not engaging


Do you have all 4 tires matched to each other? If you have 1 worn and 3 new, expect problems. Also, 2 tires on the front from 1 mfgr and 2 on the rear from a different mfgr will cause no 4WD. If all 4 tires match, put it in 4WD and tap on the transfer case and the front shift mechanism on the front axle. One or the other may be stuck, assuming that the 4WD fuse is good. The fuse is in the fusebox under the dash.
