Question about Chevrolet Blazer

Open Question

Hello Sir I have an misunderstanding about 4 wheel drive and because I don't understand it, I would normally drive in ( D ) which means drive but every time I put it in drive and start driving it pretty much drags like the transmission is not in place, the hi/low of my 4 wheel drives just blinks and I press low so it can drive normal, but that doesn't work, so that leaves me with no option, to only drive in ( 2 ) which is the only way I can drive because I don't understand the the 4 wheel drive and if you ask me I would love to disable it from my vehicle

Rear wheels not engaging what can I do to troubleshoot the awd?

awd drive cars have a differential action between front and rear wheels and there should be a switch that allows you to lock up that action for adverse conditions
if the rear wheels are not working , it is because there is no drive action to the front wheels ( front wheels spinning or broken drive shaft to the front)
all wheel drive means that in normal driving when there is traction on all 4 wheels that the power is transmitted evenly to all 4 wheels
It is not 4 wheel drive where power is applied to both axles or in the event of one axle loosing traction the other axle still drives

Are awd drives as good as 4 wheel drive ?

Depends on alot of t hings.
All wheel drive means all four wheels are pulling all the time. 4 wheel drive means you can shift the transfer case to make all 4 wheels pull, but not on dry pavement.
Most all wheel drive systems use clutches to allow the wheels to make turns and handle different road surfaces.

Cant figure how to change in or out of 4 wheel to 2 wheel

It has All Wheel Drive, which means all four wheels are always engaged thru a clutch system.
You may want to get an owners manual if you don't already have one.

I don't have the owners manual, and have never owned a 4x4 in the past, as stupid as this sounds i don't know the proper procedure to engage 4 wheel drill hi

you have a lever or switch that engages 2wheel normal driving 4 wheel high for wet slippery conditions ,then you have four wheel low for real muddy and deep snow conditions
normally change from 2 wheel to four wheel high on the move .important nearly all 4 wheel drive vehicles must be stopped to engage low otherwise do damage to transmission

When putting my '04 Mountaineer in reverse or drive, with the steering wheel turned, the car fights very hard to move. Driving straight if fine. Any ideas?

Hello, Yes, It sounds like it is in 4 Wheel drive mode. Your vehicle will not make as sharp of a turn when in 4x4. You should be in 2 wheel drive on dry pavement. If you have the other system called All Wheel Drive, yours would be binding when it should not.

Check your Range Selector for the different settings. When in 4x4, the vehicle is made to take gradual turns so you don't flip it on a hill. Sometimes people mistake the Range knob for the Fan Blower switch.

Hello, when i put my 01 dodge ram into 4 wheel drive it kind of hops along when you turn the wheel. is this normal of a 4x4 to do. if not could you please tell me what you think it might be.

This is normal, as most 4x4s do not have a center differential. This will cause the wheels to try and spin at the same speed front to rear and as the front wheels will cover more ground than the rear wheels in a turn, they will drag a little bit. I highly do not recommend using 4 wheel drive on pavement due to this, as it will eventually damage the front differential and will drastically accelerate tire wear.

Greetings, My car started showing some issues yesterday, it gives me a sign, 4low! don't know what means and it has started performing complitly different and slow, is not changing gears too!...

On any suv with 2 and 4 wheel drive options 4 low generally means that the transmission is in 4 wheel drive low gearing option so that the most possible torque is transferred to the wheels by way of what would be called a granny gear. What you will need to do is check your 4 wheel drive settings to see if the transmission has been put into this option which is either on a separate shift lever or a push button either on the shift handle or on the dash. Your owners manual should also direct you to where the selector is at.

Have a 2002 crv awd .Which wheels drive the car. LIVE IN ARIZONA. Drove car first sow. Wife car formerly now retired I drive. Car was all over the road. auto trans. 63000 mi.

The AWD means All Wheel Drive. Sort of the same as a 4 wheel drive. All the wheels have power at the same time. In a slippery road condition, all tires/wheels can loose traction at the same time causing loose of control - which would be normal. AWD does not mean traction all the time in snow and ice. It still has to be driven with caution and respect to road conditions. Hope this helps.
