More than likely the trans is not stuck in neutral, it could possibly be low on fluid. That is the first thing I would check. If it is full then try putting the transfer case into 4X4 high and then low and see if it will move. If it does after you do this, then the problem would be inside of the transfer case. If it does not move in any gear it would more than likely be a internal failure of the trans.

How to engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1991 jeep cherokee

You can "shift on the fly" at up to 45mph - just let off the gas and pull the shifter back to 4hi. DO NOT try going to 4lo while moving.

Another way is to stop, put it in neutral, and pull the shifter back to 4hi or 4lo.

This is vacuum activated - so if you can't get it to engage - the vacuum motor is failed - or you have a disconnected or rotted vacuum line.

Cherokees have the command - track. You'll see a lever next to the transmission shifter that has letters 2H, 4H, N, 4L on it.
You can shift from 2H (2wheel drive high range) to 4H (4wheel drive high range) at any legal speed.
If it's an automatic, I recommend just taking your feet off of both pedals, so there's not a lot of torque being passed thru the transfer case.
If it's a standard I recommend stepping on the clutch when you shift, but it's not necessary.
To go to Neutral just pull the shifter back one more position to the N position. To shift into 4L (4wheel drive lo range) you must be stopped.
I also recommend shifting the transmission into neutral when you do this. Push the shifter to the right, then pull it back.

Will a 4L60E out of a 93 chevy silverado heavy half 4x4 work in a 96 chevy 1500 suburban 4x4?

there are a few differences in 96 there is a range indicator switch which also works as a neutral safety switch mounted on the selector shaft. if the 93 tranny is original it wont have the bosses to mount that switch.

1991 chevy c1500 manual trans won't shift

Is the clutch working? Will it roll freely when engaged? If so then it probably is just the linkage sync in the top of transmission. Or it is stuck in probably first or third? Not positive how that one is. But there is three movable linkages. 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and R. In order to shift a different one the one your on has to go back to neutral or the other one won't shift. The gearshift probably jumped over to one that won't move. And you have to take it off and set them back to neutral and put it back together.

Or It has broken gears, which would have to be real bad to keep it out of all gears.

I hope this helps. Too late Im sure.

Reverse workes sometimes

Is it a manual or automatic transmission?

On the automatics the two cables that interconnect above the transmission need to be set perfect for the transmission to pump pressure and engage the transmission.

Set it so the backside is fairly tight and the carburator isn't loose to the throttle valve assembly. Then loosen the front cable and pull it towards yourself until tight and finger tighten the adjustment bolts.

Now shift it into Neutral. Loosen the front and back nuts on the heavy shifting rod and center them again. Tighten them up. If you loose reverse loosen the front cable a tiny bit and you're done.

Have you ever had the transmission serviced? Change fluid and filter? Have you checked level? With engine on tranny in park check transmission dipstick. There are normally two readings on stick, cold and warm/hot. If the answer is yes to all above then you need transmission work.

1996 Chevy cavalier is stuck in neutral

There are no easy fixes with automatic transmission but you could have the shift linkage checked to see if it can be adjusted. The neutral adjust switch may be out of adjustment or malfunctioning. It could be a number of problems but I would take it to an expert you trust because it may be something simple and they will tell you that you need your transmission rebuilt.

91 4.3l won't run hot

You have a TransMission Problem..It's Called a "Torque Converter Lock-up solenoid" ..

When the Engine is cool the solenoid is not being used,
When the Engine is Hot, the solenoid Kicks in and makes your Chevy Run like your pulling an 18 wheeler.

Wait till the Engine is Cool, Slide Under your Van, Drivers side near the shifter is a 4 wire Plug.
Un-plug the wire and see if your trans works after it's hot.. your just by-passing the solenoid BUT I have never found a use for it my self..

IF you still get Lock up after this, you are stuck bringing to a trans shop or see if the solenoid cam be removed without ripping the whole trans apart..
