    Could you elaborate a little more please? Does the rear wheel not turn at all? Under what conditions is it not turning? Brakes on or all the time?

Why do Both my back wheels turn in opposite directions


Hi Anthony. This is a reaction called "Torque" Commonly, most rear wheeled vehicles have what is called "Limited-Slip Differential" What happens is, as the vehicle makes a turn, the inside rear wheel rotates slightly slower than the rear wheel on the outside of the turn. This ensures even power distribution to the rear wheels from the transmission. If you have a "Positive Traction" (Posi) rear wheel drive, then when you accelerate, both wheels turn at the exact same rotational time. The consequence of this is, when you turn, you will hear a rear tire squeal on the pavement. There is also the "Semi-Posi" that acts like an Limited-Slip, until you apply power. Then the rear wheels turn at the same rotation, but only under power. To experience what it would be like if all wheels turned the same direction at the same time, find someone with a 4 wheel drive (4x4) with manual hubs, and on pavement put it in 4 low and try to turn. 2 of the tires will squeal on the pavement, and you will notice it will slow you down very quickly during a turn. I hope this gives you the info you wanted. ^^

Are there cv joints on the front


constant velocity joints are for front wheel drive cars to transfer the power from the transmission/engine to the front drive wheels that turn around corners , your car is rear wheel drive , rear wheels do not turn around corners so it does not need any type of joints , its a straight drive axle , incidentally your car has the 3.o jaguar engine id bet since they were a deal ford did when obtaining jaguar (let them use them in there lux cars)

What causes rear wheels not to engage whether in 2 or 4 whhel drive? Front ones only turn when in 4x4.


If the shaft is powering out to rear end then internal on rear possibly broken differential. If no power from case to rear then broken in case.

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

2005 Kia Sorento - in 4 wheel drive, on dry pavement, going slow in forward, turning a corner to the left the rear drivers side wheel tries going in reverse and when turning right the passenger side wheel...


Hi,
Yes, this is normal while in four wheel drive on pavement.
I will try and explain why.
In four wheel drive the front and rear drive axles are linked together by a chain in the transfer case and gears in both axles. This is a direct link with very little play between the front and rear axles.
When cornering a rear wheel will spin faster, or slower depending on the direction of the turn. this causes a binding in the drive line because the drive line wants all the wheels to turn at the same speed. So the wheel "skipping" going in reverse, is the drive lines way of compensating for the different speed of the wheels turning.
Never should a four wheel drive be used on dry pavement. I could cause a break in one of the drive line components. On a slippery surface , snow, mud, gravel, grass, There is enough slippage in the surface to aloow the driveline to compensate for the different speeds of tire rotation.
So do not try at highway speeds on dry pavement.
Your four wheel drive system is working just fine.

No power to rear wheels on a 98 Forester w/ auto trans.It runs and drives fine without any noise, shifts through all gears smoothly but will not distribute any power to the rear wheels. Anyone know?


just looked up the 1998 Legacy, and the all wheel drive is a constant drive system, so if you don't have any drive to the rear, there is no electrical switches or solenoids to turn the rear drive on or off the system is all mechanical, so you need to take a good look at the drive shaft going to the rear wheels, Jack the car up all 4 wheels and install jack stands under all four lower a-frames then have some one start the car and put the trans. in gear and watch the rear drive shaft to see if it is turning, if it is not you will have to have the trans-axle checked out for a bad rear drive gear, if the drive shaft is turning but the rear wheels are not you will have to have the rear differential checked for a broken ring or pinion gear, but what you may find is that the drive shaft may have a broken u-joint and that you can fix yourself, pay very close attention to were the drive shaft attaches to the trans-axle and the differential.......i hope this helps let me know if there is any thing i can help you further with.

FRONT WHEEL DRIVE IS THAT THE FRONT WHEELS ARE WHAT DRIVES THE CAR AND THE TRANSMISSION IS IN THE FRONT REAR WHEEL DRIVE MEANS THAT THE REAR WHEEL DRIVE THE CAR ALLWHEEL MEANS THE THE FRONT AND REAR WHEELS DRIVES THE CAR FOUR WHEEL DRIVE MEANS THAT YOU CAN HAVE ONLY TWO WHEELS DRIVE THE CAR OR AL FOUR WHATEVER YOU PUT IT IN

Hello, with all 4 wheels off the ground,engine running and in gear only 3 wheels are turning. The right front does not. is this normal?


Unless you have a positraction rear differential, I'm surprised that even three are turning! Four wheel drive is really two wheel drive because both differentials are "open" type. In an open diff, only one wheel has power at any given time. With a positraction, or "limited slip" rear diff, both rear wheels push with fairly even force but the outer wheel is allowed to slip when going around turns. Only true four wheelers have either a limited slip on both ends or "locked" units but it is impossible or really difficult to drive anything like that on the street. If you hold the left front wheel from turning unless the locking unit is broken, the right front should turn.

Rear scraping sound, Also when placed on lift and in gear (all wheel drive) the rear left wheel does not spin


Take it in for proper diagnosis - that's not supposed to happen in an 'ALL WHEEL DRIVE' - all WHEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO TURN.
