Fix 4 wheel drive


You have a major failure in that differential, and it needs fixed (overhauled) very quickly, or you will need more that that fixed.
You may wind up needing a whole new front axle, if it is not too late already.
God bless your efforts.

Can 4 wheel & differential be used together


If you have four wheel drive engaged, engine power is routed through the transmission to the transfer case to the front and rear differentials. When four wheel drive is disengaged power goes only to the rear differential.

How to rebuild dana 60 front?


Fully rebuild, or partial rebuild? Pinion, ring, spider gears, pumpkin, bearings? Rebuilding it FULLY and PROPERLY is a big story, one too big to relate here, and it takes quite a lot of special tooling (differential spreader, dial indicators, etc). Please don't attempt this unless you have a well equipped shop.

If you just need to replace the spider gears, that's easy. Drain the oil, remove the cover, rotate the pumpkin until you can unbolt the crosspin. Push/pull the crosspin out, rotate the spider gears until they come out. Remove the side gears. Remove all four thrust washers.

Replace all four thrust washers, then the new side gears, then mesh the new spider gears with the side gears & rotate them into place. If the crosspin hole won't line up, rotate one axle shaft until it does. Install the new crosspin and bolt it in. Replace the cover gasket and cover, refill.

Going further requires a LOT more work, but you'll need to remove the spider & side gears first anyway. If you're replacing bearings or the pumpkin or the ring & pinion, you'll need a bunch of new shims to work with until you can get the ring-pinion clearance exactly right. You'll also need a differential spreader to get enough space to remove/install the pumpkin with its bearings in place. If you're replacing the pinion gear, you'll need to take some painfully exact measurements or you'll NEVER get the ring/pinion clearances correct.

97 ford explorer/bad front differential..can I remove it completly with the cv joints and let front wheels freewheel?


Yes is the short answer. Did you blow the gears in your front differential or you going to put a whole new pumpkin in? If you are replacing the entire pumpkin drain it first. Then make sure to support it with a transmission jack first. Remove the tires. Then remover the CV axles and lower the pumpkin. Your vehicle requires a 75w90 synthetic axle lube for a refill. Good luck.

I have vaccum to the accuator and the accuator pulls the cable but still no four wheel drive. The four wheel drive lights up but not the front wheel lights and it is not locking in. help......


There is a clip on the pumpkin (front diff) that the 4wd cable connects to that is common to break. Easy fix, inspect the cable where it connects to the pumpkin and repair any damages found.

Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

How do I determine if the car is front wheel drive or rear wheel drive?


Generally, trucks, vans and large cars with big engines will have rear-wheel drive. Smaller, economy and compact cars are most often front-wheel drive. But you don't have to guess which one you have - find out for yourself.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions

  1. Understand that front-wheel drive means the power from the engine and the transmission goes to the front wheels; rear-wheel drive means the power goes to the rear wheels. Four-wheel, or all-wheel, drive means all four wheels are powered.

  2. Open the hood.

  3. Find the front of the engine. The front of the engine is always where the belts are located.

  4. Look to see if the front of the engine is by the fender (side of the car). If so, then you have front-wheel drive.

  5. Check to see if the front of the engine is by the radiator and the grill (front of the car). If so, then you have rear-wheel drive.

  6. Look under the car near each front wheel. If you see an axle with a rubber boot (called the CV boot) on either end going into the wheel, then you have front- wheel drive.

  7. Look under the car between the rear wheels. If you see a large, metal, pumpkin- shaped thing (it's called the differential) with two axles coming out either side, then you have rear-wheel drive.

  8. Check both under the hood for the position of the engine and under the car for the axles to be sure, because not every car follows the rules for engine position and front- or rear-wheel drive (see Tips below for examples of cars with variations on this rule).


Good Luck

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.

Thinking about an engine swap


yes you will have to change the computer. the rear diff wont have to be changed if the front diff has the same gear ratio.the entire front end suspension will need removed so tha you can mount the four wheel drive differential this most likely will require custom modifications. and the whole process will be very time consuming and expensive
