It is normal. check your air pressure though and that will help. dont put too much in or you will wear out the center of your tires.

If you mean the tires squeal around turns, then yes. This is caused by different wheel speeds as you turn because the differential causes both wheels to turn at the same rate. The outside tires have a greater distance (around a greater circle) to travel, so they need a higher speed than the inside tire's smaller distance traveled. It is normal. Just think of the two points on a record making the same RPM, although the outermost point is traveling much faster than the innermost.

Hope this helps,
matt

I have a 1991 trooper front wheels not pulling in 4wd I have jacked the car up while in drive and in 4wd front tires turn but can be easly stopped does this vehicle have a limited slip drive? if not what...


Toyota do not normally have a limited slip diff in the front as it creates handling problems and economy problems that most drivers did not want. If you have the front axle jacked up so that both front wheels ore off the ground then both wheels will turn or one will turn more than the other or when you hold one wheel the other wheel goes twice as fast. If all that is happening there is nothing wrong with the diff. . If you have automatic hubs make sure that they are working under load

When car is in 4WD and i turn the car jerks?


This is likely normal believe it or not. In 4wd, the front tires are "locked" when you are moving forward or backwards with the wheel turned, one wheel will be "fighting" the other because they are now trying to travel around in 2 different diameter circles (left to right) This is why its not recommended thaty you drive in 4x4 on dry surfaces. Try the same thing in a snowy parking lot where the tires can slip a little and see if your "rubbing" has gone away or at least significantly lessened. Do be careful as running a 4 whl drive in the 4x4 position on dry surfaces can and eventually will cause damage. Please let me know how you make out or if you need any more help. Thanks and good luck!

When I'm in 4 wd the front wheels feel like the brakes are being applied when I make a sharp turn. No problems when driving straight or in 2 wd.


It sounds like you are driving in 4wd drive on dry pavement. The front drive axles do not work like the rear differential. When you turn, the outside front wheel must travel farther than the inside wheel, therefore they are traveling through the turn at different speeds. If you are on dry pavement, this causes the gears to bind. You don't notice this on slick surfaces because the outside wheel will slip instead of bind up the gears. You should not use 4wd on dry pavement. That's the advantage of push button, or shift on the fly, 4wd. You can shift back to 2wd when you encounter dry pavement. All wheel drive vehicles don't have this problem because they have a limited slip front differential as opposed to a locking differential on 4wd. Hope I didn;t confuse you too much.

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.

I may need to replace the front wheel bearing. There is a squeeling sound coming from the front right side of the car.


Normally a squeeling noise coming from the front wheel area would be the front brake disk pads getting too low. Normally when wheel bearings start to fail the noise they produce is more consistant which a growl noise.

Noise while driving in 4WD.


It's probably ok. Take it on a grassy area, or unpaved road, try the 4wd out. If you hear any noises while turning, it could be worn u joint shafts in one or both front wheels, but this can happen from normal wear and tear. If there is no problem (noises or performance) when driving normally on unpaved surface, everything is ok, and anyway, just turning the wheel a couple of times on dry pavement isn't enough to do damage.

When i put it in four wheel drive and try to turn it feels like the tire is rubbing the fender well and its difficult to turn


Most 4wd vehicles naturally are hard to turn tight corners when 4wd is engaged.because of the wheels working against each other (normal trait of most true 4wd vehicles)If it is truly rubbing a wheel there should be a clean spot in the inner wheel well or on the frame does your trailblazer have stock size tires on it?.....oversize tires could be your problem.If you don't detect a spot where it has been rubbing there may be a universal joint or CV shaft(constant Velosity shaft) problem.or even a worn or bent\broken suspension component allowing the wheels to turn further than they are designed to turn
hope this helps.....Good luck!
