I would change the thermostat and radiator cap. The T-stat is what controls the engine temperature and is is probably stuck shut. This part is man made and will fail sooner or later. The rad cap is cheep and should be replaced when a T-stat is changed.

Replaced 4 wheel actuator on a 1999 chevy Silverado lt 350 and still does not shift into 4 wheel drive


There is an electric switch on a brown wire that goes to the trans. insure it is hook up or the plunge on the differential will not work. also some models require you to back up to lock the 4 wheel drive in.

I just bought a 2000 Nissan Frontier and I'd like to know the correct way to shift on the fly into and out of 4WD? I don't want to mess it up. Also is it ok to use 4WD if pavement is just wet or will that...


you can shift on the fly from 2 hi to 4 hi at any time as long as you are not under power or in other words on the gas. Hold at a steady speed or let up on gas pedal a little bit then shift, DO NOT shift truck when vehicle is speeding up or taking off. Also do not shift when wheels are spinning or when you are turning a corner. The same goes for shifting from 4 hi to 2 hi. ** Now to shift into 4 lo the truck should be stopped and put trans shift into nuetral then shift transfercase into 4 lo, and never exceed 25 mph in 4 lo position !!!!!!! To shift out of 4 lo and go to 4 hi or 2 hi stop vehicle and shift trans into nuetral then make your 4x4 shift then put trans into forward or reverse gear and VROOOOOM your on your way. Remember to NEVER and i mean NEVER shift into 4 lo while vehicle is moving forward or reverse as you will do serious damage to any and all parts of drive train. You should not run 4x4 at all unless you need to pull something where you need extra traction like a boat out of water,a stuck vehicle,or if roads are slippery, or muddy. also don't be alarmed as sometimes when in 4 wheel drive and you turn corners you will notice a binding or jerking motion, this is normal and if this is occurring i would recommend going back to 2 hi position. HAPPY TRAILS to you with the new toy. I only buy vehicles with 4x4 and have never owned a 2 wheel drive in my 31 yrs of driving. I love the idea that i have extra power and traction options when i need it,the only bad thing is your boss says " what do you mean you can't make it in,you have a 4 wheel drive!

Automatic trans? Sounds to me like the trans is either busted up or damaged in such a way that the gearing won't rotate or things are binding internally. With the drive shaft off, transfercase in 2WD, and trans in anything but PARK, the driveshaft should be able to turn by hand. Of, course, a drop of the pan can also give a indication. When gears bust up in a 4L80E, there is evidence.
