Did you get out of vehicle and lock in the front hubs?/ or is it supposed to be automatic? if you have auto locking hubs than you have a vacuum line disconected.

SOURCE: jeep stuck in low four wheel drive

Put the transmission in neutral, emergency brake off, foot off the brake pedal, now try shifting out of 4 wheel drive low. If that doesn't work, drive forward, and again do the above, trans. in neutral, roll to a stop, foot off brake, try to disengage. What you're probably experiencing is called drive shaft 'wind up', and it is very difficult to disengage, but do the above and it should shift out of 4 low. countrycurt0

SOURCE: 1998 chevy blazer won't go in to four wheel drive

It sounds like the encoder motor. That's the black plastic box on the driver's side of the transfer case. But just to make sure, the control module for the encoder motor is located behind the passenger side kick plate (inside the vehicle, passenger side, where your feet would be, outside side). Disconnect it for a few seconds and then reconnect it. If the problem still exists, you will have to repair or change your encoder motor. I grabbed one at a scrap yard for less than $100.00.

What are the torque settings for a 99 jetta rear wheel bearing?


Snug them up, then back them off about two increments where the cotter pin goes in. Wheel should spin freely. If not back nut off.Take a short test drive, a km or so. Feel the wheels in the center, warm is normal, but not hot. If hot back the nut off.

My 92 jeep wrangler, when in $ wheel drive, only spins 3 wheels. the 4th wheel never engaged, i figured it might be a limited slip thing, but I had it free spinning for awhile, and I would have thought the...


Most vehicles with four wheel drive and positraction in the rear will have an "open" style differential up front. (unless modified for off road only use). An open diff will only spin the wheel with the least traction. The only way the other wheel would have spun is if that happened.
Reason front posi units aren't used on the street is that they make steering difficult.

How does the four wheel drive on my jeep work or lock in?


If you have a CJ or Cherokee, when you move the 4x4 lever, it engages the transfer case which then transmits power to the front as well as the rear wheels. For most (99%) of all four wheel use, you use the front position on the shifter one notch behind the two wheel drive setting. Use 4 low only for pulling vehicles out of mud etc and don't drive in that range. If it sticks in 4wd after disengaging it, usually backing up about twenty feet will help.
If you have a Grand Cherokee, the 4x4 usually is a quadratrack unit. That one stays engaged but only goes into 4wd mode when the rear wheels begin to slip. (by itself). Rules for using low are the same.
It is very important to run the exact same size and style tires on any 4x4. It is mandatory on quadratrack units. Use of odd sized tires can cause driveline damage.
There are variations on different year vehicles but the basics remain the same.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont come out of four wheel drive unles it sits over night, what can I do?


With any four wheel drive you should always stop and back up ten feet when ever taking it out four wheel drive. This helps to unlock the gears so they can disengage and helps ensure that it isn't still in 4WD.

4 wheel drive doesnt work.


Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.
