rev limiter at what rpm are you doing for the shift light to come on ----your over revving the engine to high and the truck kills power if its doing at regular rpm then possible faulty limiter in 98 they removed the limiter and put a speed limiter 94 mph and the pcm would needed to be programmed or to remove it same thing

Does 4 wheel drive help you stop faster or is it just a traction device


Hi,
Four wheel drive is a traction devise. Not a braking devise.
So, no it will not help you stop faster.
That said, on slippery conditions when you let off the gas the extra, "traction" will help slow you down if you do not slide.
Hope this helps you out.

'01 gmc sonoma won't shift into 4 wheel drive high or low. This happened a few years ago and a mechanic did somthing under the battery. ??


That where the vacuum actuator is located that controls the shift cable to the front drive axle that engauges the 4 wheel drive. So if its working ok now he was working on the right area.

It seems like it is not fully disengaging from 4 wheel drive, and it won't shift into overdrive. i hear the front end roaring going down the road.


possibly a transfer case motor problem make suer you are in 2 wheel drive,try shifting button from 4 wheel to 2 wheel drive and make sure your tow haul switch is off on the end of the regular shiter

I have a 2000 gmc sonoma and while driving down


Probably the CV joint. When you put it in 4x4 that puts extra torque on it so it wont vibrate so much.

2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD


Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.
