SOURCE: front brakes dont seem to be working properley.

When was the last time the brake fluid was flushed? Spongy/unresponsive brakes can sometimes be due to moisture/air in the brake lines. You can take the wheel off and get someone to push the brake peddle and see if the brake caliper is moving at all. If it is moving, but not enough to stop the wheel, I'd recommend flushing the brake fluid. If the caliper is not moving at all, it could be the caliper itself (but its very unlikely that both would go bad at the same time)

SOURCE: I installed new rear shoes,drums,&wheel

Make sure the bleeder is open,and not plugged with rust,or road debris.
After this,place a 3/16 inch diameter rubber vacummn line over the bleeder valve or fitting and place it in a container of brake fluid to keep it from drawing air.Make full strokes of the brake peddle,and pull it all the way back with your hand.Loosen the mastercylinder cover,or cap and keep refilling,before the cylinder goes empty as this will induce more air.After you have most of the air purged out close off the bleeder, and pump the brakes 3 or more times holding pressure and have a buddy loosen the bleeder if there is still some air ,repeat more pressure bleeding with buddy,intill the brakes feel solid.You may have to adjust the brake shoes to the drum diameter to get a better pedal heith,so the front brakes will have adequate pressure too.Tap on the baking plate while adjusting the shoes.Best way is to lock them up and then turn the star wheel adjusters back both the same with no drag.Chek the emergency brake adjustment if too tight back off some or this will or may cause rear shoes to drag a bit and wear prematurely .

SOURCE: there is water draining from a hose connected to

Does it do this all the time or only while running the air conditioner? There are two possibilities. One, when the a/c is running, water condenses on the evaporator and it has to drain out of the box via that hose, this is normal. Two, your heater core is leaking and this is where the water is coming from.

SOURCE: front axle vacum hose is connected to the axle and

If the hose you are looking at attaches to or very near the bulge in the axle where the gearset is located, you are looking at the vent hose. You can attach it to the firewall, anywhere higher than the differential. Factory location is usually on the drivers side of the engine between the master cylinder and the engine on the firewall. They usually have a vent cap on the end to keep water out but when it falls down and hits the road the cap is often lost. You can make a cover using a small bottle cap and a 3" sheetrock screw drilled through it's center. Just slide the screw into the hose so the cap sits on top (it won't fit tightly and shouldn't but it will keep debris out of the hose)
If you have a differential control box on the right side axle with more than one vacuum hose on it (unusual on GC's) then you will need a vacuum diagram to find the connection points.

Depands on year and model. Early models have a cable with directs the vent openings. If early check cable has not come off behind the sliding knob or more common the cable is broken. If later model usually controled by vacum. Check behind dash for hoses connected. First check under bonnet on passenger side near firewall. Look to see if small vacum hose has not come off or is cracked. It is about 3/4mm (1/4inch) thick. It runs into the cabin through the fire wall. Inside the car it is behind the turn knob in the dash. Again check hose and connections. I have even found them fallen off under the passenger side dash, people kick the hoses without realising.
I hope this helps

AC is blowing cold air, but it is coming out of the defrost and not the front vents. Why are the front vents not working?

Check over on the passenger side under the hood by the fire wall, there will be some elec. connection, just below that there will be a small vacum line that should go into your fire wall, check that it has vacum, it should also have a one way valve, small round looking some time that get clog, needs to have vacum that is what power the blend door's.

4 wheel grinding of and on up front. drive shaft is turning from transfer case but front wheels do not.

It could be a loose vacume hose. Check all of your vacume hoses. It could also mean your transfer case needs replaced.

I have no heat on passage side of car and no defrost

it is a vacum line to the heater that is either plugged or not connected look under the dash you or a passenger may hav hit it with your foot. after look ing at all the connections, if it still per sists, try using a vacume tester on all the hoses if all have proper vacum levels then you need to replace an actuator(the things the hoses plug into on the heater box.

When i turn on heat or ac it runs on the defrost setting but wont shift to the vent or floor until the 4 wheel drive knob gets turned on 1999 f250 I heard this was a common problem is it the switch for 4x4...

you have a vacum leak in the 4x4 engagement system. there is a vacum solenoid on the passenger side next to the battery. should have 3 hoses to it I believe. check those hoses for cracks they go all the way to both front wheels. the ones in the wheel wells are usually messed up. if all hoses are good hook up a hand held vacum pump to each wheel they should hold about 15 hg on the vacum guage if not your wheel hub seals are leaking.

Your linkage is most likely bent or rusty and stuck. Get somone under the car and try shifting out of 4wd they should be able to see the linkage trying to move and help it along.

Windshield washer fluid hose is leaking behind front right wheel

I had the same problem. Reservoir would drain for no reason and I later found that the water was soaking the passenger side carpet and filling the wire channel under the doors. Tracked the problem to a barbed fitting behind the passenger side kick panel, just below the dash. The fitting connects the tubing coming through the firewall from the reservoir to the rear wiper/washer. The hose had come loose from the fitting (possibly due to freezing). I re-installed the tubing onto the the fitting and it has been fine ever since.

Vacuum lines for 4 wheel drive

if you look under the Jeep on the passenger side of the front axle you will see a vacume mod its kind of round shaped it should have a vacume plug on it wit ha few hoses going into it make sure its plugged in for starters these come off all the time if it looks good here simply follow the lines into the engine compartment and look for broken hose this should get you a fix most of the time, the mod could be defective but not likely.
