SOURCE: I have a 1992 wrangler that when put into 4 wheel

Your 4-wheel drive is activated by a vacuum mechanism located on the front axle. That has probably failed or it could be the vacuum line.

I have a 2005 ram 1500 4x4.when i put it four wheel drive high it feels like its in low and back tire on driver side skids


There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.

Front wheel bearing instalation


Engage the emergency brake. Place the socket end of the tire wrench over the lug nuts and turn 45 degrees to break the nuts loose. Do not unseat the wheel from the wheel hub.
  • 2Jack the Sentra into the air using the factory front jack point. This is located behind the radiator.
  • Finish loosening the lug nuts and remove the wheel.
  • 4Unbolt the upper and lower caliper mounting bolts and lift the caliper off the brake rotor.
  • 5Secure the brake caliper to the coil springs above the brake system with zip ties.
  • 6Slide the brake rotor off the hub assembly.
  • 7Remove the bearing cap on your Sentra. To do this, you need to use channel locks. Grab the bearing cap with the end of the channel locks. Then, twist the channel locks back and forth. You will eventually be able to loosen the bearing cap so that you can pull it off.
  • 8Grab the end of the cotter pin on the spindle nut with pliers and pull it out of the nut. You may need to pull fairly hard, but the pin will come out.
  • 9Turn the spindle nut counterclockwise to remove the spindle nut.
  • 10Tap the wheel bearing out of place with a rubber mallet or a hammer.
  • 11Tap the bearing races out of the hub with a hammer and punch tool. You need to do this for both sides of the hub.
  • 12Clean the inside of the hub, the spindle, as well as the spindle nut brake parts cleaner and wipe them dry with a clean rag.
  • 13Install the new wheel bearing. Tap the new bearing into the hub using a rubber mallet. Make sure you are using a rubber mallet so that you do not damage the new bearing.
  • 14Reassemble the hub assembly, brake assembly, and put the wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts so that the wheel sits flush against the wheel hub. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • 15Lower the Sentra to the ground and set the dial on a torque wrench to 100 lb-ft. Tighten the lug nuts clockwise until the wrench clicks. This will indicate that the proper torque value has been reached.

    Warn hubs, installation


    Warn Hubs Installation
    A truck or SUV with a four-wheel drive suspension uses locking hubs on the front wheels to engage or disengage the front axle shafts from the hubs. This way, you can drive the truck normally with just rear-wheel drive, or engage four-wheel drive mode when you want to drive off-road. These hubs can wear out, and one improvement is to install a set of Warn hubs. Installing a set of Warn hubs takes about an hour.
    1.Park the truck and put on the parking brake. Lift the front of the truck with the jack and put the jack stands under the front axle. Take off the front wheels with the tire iron and put them to the side.
    2.Disengage the locking hubs using your hands by turning the knob on the hubs. Remove the snap rings holding the hub locks in place with the snap-ring pliers. Pull the hub off the axle.
    3.Install the lock ring wheel from the Warn hub kit in the axle with the factory snap ring and the snap-ring pliers.
    4.Make sure the Warn locking cap dial is turned to the "Free' position. Install the locking cap onto the lock ring wheel and hub body with a hex-head key. Reinstall the front wheels with the tire iron and lower the vehicle off the jack stands with the jack.

    I have a Ford F250 XL- While plowing today I notice that the truck was swaying to the left but didn't think anything of it, thought it was the wet snow. Then while back blading some snow, I noticed that...


    check both front lockouts,1 side or the other could have broken,unlock 1 side and reach underneath and try turning the axel on the other side-----if it turns all the way around, then replace that lockout,if it doesnt turrn then try unlocking that side and lock in the other side and see if you can turn it,if so then replace that lockout.if not then something might be wrong with the transfercase to the way it engages

    How do I get the front brake rotors off a 1999 nissan pathfinder, 2 wheel drive


    First block the rear wheels so they won't roll.
    2. Jack the front end up and put on jack stands don't trust the jack for long periods of time.
    3. Remove front wheels and brake calipers.
    4. In the center of the rotor as you look at it is a dust cover remove this
    5. There should be a lock cap with a cotter pin thru it, remove the pin and lock cap
    6. Remove the nut holding the bearings in place.
    7. Remove rotor by pulling toward you, be careful the bearings will come out also, don't let them fall or get dirty.
    8. There is a seal in the back of the rotor to give access to inner bearing.
    9. Replace seals and repack inner and outer bearings and reverse to install. Being careful not to over tighten the front wheel bearings. If you do they wil sieze up then you have a real mess.

    Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag


    i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably shoes..is it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together wrong..id say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!

    Wheel baring left front bad van is awd how to replace


    Remove the wheel and take off your brake caliper. Once you have the wheel off, you will see a dust cap in the center of the wheel. Remove the dust cap by using a pair of channel locks, don't use something to pry it loose as this will cause it to leak grease later. Once you have the dust cap off you will see inside a castle nut held in place with a cotter pin. Remove the pin and unscrew the nut. This will allow the rotor and bearing to come out. Replace the bearing with the new one using a high temp grease to grease them.... IMPORTANT: when you grease the new bearings make sure to grease them thoroughly. Put a glob of grease in the palm of your hand and slowly dab the sides of the new bearings in the grease (this will allow the bearings to be greased on the inside).... Put back together as you found it. NOTE: When tightening the castle nut, tighten it down tight and then release it a quarter turn back before before inserting the pin to hold it back in place. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

    My 4 wheel drive won't engage


    Sportages uses a vacuum system to lock front hubs - turn the wheels all the way to one side, then look from behind the wheel on the side you are turning 'from" There should be a rubber hose from the vacuum fitting near the wheel opening from the engine compartment to the wheel itself. If these are damages or disconnected, the front axles will engage into 4wd but the hubs will not lock and the front wheels will not be driven by the axles.
