SOURCE: chevy s10 4 wheel drive will not engage

There is a vaccuum operated switch located on the transfer case that sends vaccum to the accuator that pulls a cable that locks the front end in. Check for vac coming in and out of this switch if no vac out replace it. This switch is a very common problem. You can find them at most parts stores in the help section #49315. please rate.

A low speed vibration is likely caused by a tire. Check to see if any rims are bent. Have the tires checked and replaced as necessary. If the tires are worn unevenly have an alignment done. If this is an AWD model check the driveshaft and support bearing.

SOURCE: drive shaft

8 months of trauma! The original d/s has a double Cardan style...other wise known as a constant velocity u-joint, at the pinion end/rear end connection. My Ford dealer had it to the d/shaft re-build place and they did a new d/s w/single u-joint at the rear end. WRONG! The OEM shaft has a needle zerk on the Cardan joints and most shops don't know about it and don't see it and so it never gets grease. What you need to do is just re-build the original c/v Cardan and the prob. goes away. My dealer finally installed a double/double Cardan d/s!!! $1200. NO CHARGE TO ME! Problem solved! The OEM as I recall, has a double cardan at the rear end only. This one has a double at the hanger bearing and at the rear end!! I also installed the S-10 extended cab drive shaft alignment kit from Stealth Conversions. They claim even if you have the double cardan this kit will make it last a lot longer. $42. for the kit and $200 for the install by my gar. guy. I would have done it myself but the bolts on the rear end needed to be heated to get them off and install the 2 degree shims. No way I'm laying on the floor w/a torch 2 inches from my nose to do that!! Now it is as smooth as silk! What an ordeal! This is the ONLY way to solve the vibration problem. You need,at minimum, the OEM double cardan (C/V) system at the pinion connection. You probably don't need the double at the hanger bearing. Hope this helps.

My 1996 Chevy Suburban is experiencing low, intermittent noise and vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel and seats. This only occurs at 50 to 55mph and not constant like an unbalanced


possible wheel bearing at fault. if it heard/felt more when turning or swerving and is a growling type noise, more than likley is. possible bad tire shouldnt be over looked. is abs light on? most often when wheel bearing is bad a speed sensor ( within wheel bearing ) will go open, setting abs light. vehicle needs to be ran on a hoist to try and duplicate noise/vibration.

I have a bad vibration that appears to be coming from the rearend. Started out only at certain speeds now it's all the time. Stops when you let off the gas. Shakes the entire vehicle.


A couple of things to check. It may be a wheel bearing, shock, cv joint, or a very common cause is that one or both of your back tires are worn irregularly. This causes the car to shimmy and get progressively worse as you have explained. It usually happens on the front end of the car, but can occur in the back.

Front end vibrates at high speeds Some vibration at low speeds too



Hi there,

When front-end vibration is more apparant at higher speeds, this usually indicates your front wheels are badly out of balance. This can occur if you regularly drive on unsealed roads, or the wheels have hit the curbside etc.

Have your local tire fitter balance your wheels for you - this involves clipping tiny weights to your wheels, to keep the wheel centred during rotation.

Cheers,

Scott

2002 ford escape 3.0L DTC P0305and P0306 what would you ck


P0305 - Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected

When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate. If the engine speed fluctuates enough to cause the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor signal to vary, The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) can determine that a misfire is occurring.

When is the code detected?
- Engine Cylinder #5 and #6 is Misfiring.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #5 and #6
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #5 and #6
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #5 and #6
- Fuel injector #5 and #6 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cyli

Possible Solution:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #5 and #6
- Replaced Injector #5 and #6
- Replaced Ignition Coil #5 and #6

Hope helps.

A good thing to check is the universal joints on your rear drive shaft. When they get worn, one of the first symptoms is a noise/ vibration that only occurs at certain speeds. Sometimes you can visually inspect them, and see signs of rusty powder coming out of the bearing caps.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving


If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.

On my chevy S-10 blazer I get a vibration. Its been tuned and I even changed the harmonic balancer. could the vibration be coming from an out of balanced torque converter?


You can eliminate it by removing the bolts between the flywheel and the torque converter. A weak cylinder can cause this also. Do the basics, check plug colors, compression test, and even a leak down test to start.
