SOURCE: 1993 Chevy 1500 pickup 4-wheel drive

I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

Check the vacume line. It's what locks in the front end. Under the battery box theres a vac servo with a cable, the cable locks the front axels.

You have to have your front hubs locked in for four-wheel drive to work

Why rear wheels are locked up but front are not


the first place to check is then rear drive line "U" joints as fail on a regular basis and can be not allowing the shaft to turn properly
T check for diff , jack up one side and engage a gear
if the wheel spins then the diff is turning but if it makes a bad noise (all will rumble a t a low level in this position) the diff will be faulty
It is possible that a joint flange has come loose and the bolts are jamming on the back of the transfer case housing

My Mercedes clk 230 komp has an issue withe the front passenger wheel. when pulling away on full lock right, its like the tyre is running on flat and it starts to knock. everything seems ok wheel bearing...


wheel bearings should have no play at all The correct adjustment is no preload -no end float with the adjustment nut moved slightly to preload to fit the pin.
It is happening on full lock ,check the full lock stop as the tyre may be hitting on the suspension or inner guard.

2000 ford f250, four wheel switch locked in in cab, no front wheel drive, lock in both front wheel hubs and now have 4 wheel drive. Flip off switch inside and no longer in 4 wheel drive.


I really don't know quite how to tell you this. Everything seems to be working just fine buy your question. When your using 4 wheel drive, you engage the hubs first, then push the 4 wheel drive button or turn the switch. Ease it in and out of gear or shift on the move and you should be in 4 wheel drive at this point. To take it out of 4 wheel drive, reverse this procedure. Turn the switch off and ease forward and you will be out of 4 wheel drive. If your not going to use your 4x4, turn the hubs out to reduce ware on the axles. If you will be using 4x4 again soon, leave the hubs in and all you have to do is turn the switch to 4x4 and your set to go. I hope I explained this well enough. Good luck.

Hi, I have a 1996 chevy S10 Blazer 4x4 and after getting all 4 wheels off the ground have determine that when I put it in 4 wheel drive the front driveshaft (from the transfer case) does in fact turn


the front drive shaft when locked in 4 WD does drive the front diff
that inn turn drives the both front wheels if both have the same amount of traction
if one wheel is off the ground then the other will spin at twice the speed as that is what a differential is designed to do
now if you have a problem diff center ( broken teeth etc ) the there will be awful noises, clunks and bangs as the teeth from the pinion and crown wheel mismatch and hit on each other
no noises when in 4WD indicates a good diff center
the next problem will be a broken axle at the splines into the diff center spider gears ( same as one wheel off the ground or in a bog) the only wheels doing the driving are the rear wheels
next are the "u" joints or cv joints but again there will be lots of noises involved
lastly and the most frequent is the drives at the hubs
depending on the hub locks you have it will not n be locking in one or both wheels due to faulty actuator , dry damaged locking mechanism, stripped splines or not manually engaged
understand this --unless you have limited slip differentials or diff lockers on the vehicle any 2 opposing wheels or any wheels on the same side that have lost traction and regardless of being in 4WD or not you will not be going anywhere
so to fix --start at the drive hubs both sides to check actuation , engagement , then work back into the diff

My 2004 f150 does not always work in 4 wheel drive but I replaced a vacuum line that goes to the front acuator on the front axel, then i replaced the right front hub assembly with a used one and the 4...


The IWE is operated by a common vacuum system. When you say does not work, not sure what you are getting at ( only 1 wheel locks into place, or neither ).

Could be you had the vent and vacuum lines reversed, and this did not keep the IWE gear pulled out and it rounded off on the one you did not replace.

Is the issue the front axle does not lock in, or does the drive shaft not lock in at the transfer case ?

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

When you get to this point, post back a comment to this problem with the info.
