Theres a vacum unit on the top of the front axle on the left side it has a medal dust cover around it , the 2 hoses connect to it i think one hose is a little bigger then the other so u dont put them on wrong but the hoses should be bonded together , one has suction when u put it in 4 wheel drive which comes from the intake manifold , then they go to the back to the top of the transfer case , my 87 has the same set up but i have weak vacum , i have to put mine in 4 wheel drive then shut off the motor then start it up again before it kicks in , i like it though , its better then getting in and out of the truck with front lockers

4 wheel drive will not lock in


your truck has vacuum operated front diff make sure the plastic lines arent broke. you can use a vacuum hand pump to engage it to see if its a vacuum problem. the switch is on the top of the transfer case. start there and see if vacuum is present on one of the two lines. make a jumper from a piece of steel tubing and send vacuum to the front diff. if the actuator is very rusty it may have a leak.

2003 kia sportage 2l wont engage four wheel drive light comes on but doesnt engage


This is a long/hard one to answer as a few things can cause this. First, check the vacuum lines running from the engine down to the front axles for cracks, and make sure you have vacuum to the axle hub. Second, remove and inspect the front wheel bearings, they should be set to proper preload and there should be no signs of water in the hub. And last if there is water in the hub, that most likely means there is rust on the front axle, and the pitting caused by the rust will not allow vacuum to build up and ingage the four wheel drive. the later requires a new front hub kit $$$.

4 wheel drive will not engage on my 1989 gmc sierra 2500?


actually that first soultion is wrong it is correct on smaller pickups but on the full size pick ups they use a differnet sytem
there a electric actuator on front axle
there be two elctrical plugs on front axle u want the bigger of the two other one is just to turn the 4 wheel drive light on
un plug actuator then remove actuator after it removed plug it back in but leave it out of axle turn key on and shift down to 4 wheel drive the actuator should move out if it dont that your problem if i does move this isnt your problem it either the tranfer case or in front axle

My 1991 jeep cherokee will not engage all four tires when its put into 4wheel drive. the T-case engages but for some reason only the 2 back tires spin. is there a vacum line that may be cracked?


could be, there are lines that run to frt diff, theres a vacuum reservoir that stores vacuum that comes from engine then theres aline tovacuum control switch then to vacuum swith to light the 4wd light and a line to shift motor that engauges the front wheels, check all these line and you might find a bad leaking line hope this helps.

When i put my 94 chevy suburban into four hi or low . the front axles are not engaging . The four wheel drive front drive shaft is turning but the axles are not catching.


Make sure that the vacuum actuator for the 4 wheel drive located on the axle is getting vacuum when its being engaged. A vacuum pump can be used to test the actuator for leaks. If no vacuum check line for breaks and if no breaks that you have feed vacuum for the switch itself

Four wheel won't engage


Theres a vacume dash pot under the battery box. It pulls a cable that engages the front diff. Put the vacume line and you'll have lights and four wheel drive. (it happened to my blazzer)
