Was stuck using 4 lo. Had 3 wheels spinning except l/rear,just sat doing nothing.


4 wheel drive is unfortunately a bit of a myth as in 4 wd any two wheels with no traction will not move you any where
so if you have both rh side wheels slipping,
go no where
left front right rear ,
going no where
the wheel that was not turning was the only wheel that had traction but through the differential action the other wheel spun faster
now with limited slip diff centers , both wheels have to turn as the differential action locks up so yes you would be going some where.
posi traction is the same idea
vehicles that have limited slip diffs are Toyota and Nissan as standard with some Nissans having limited slip diffs in the front drive axle as well
now if you are doing a lot of 4wd driving in adverse conditions , you need to have locker diff centers ( available from off road shops ) as they physically lock the diff actions ( with the flick of a switch) with the result if all 4 wheels are spinning and you are not moving , your stuck but if one wheel has traction you keep moving

When my 02 silverado 2500hd is in 4x4 the tires are locked and the truck won't move until I shift back to 2hi. Differential or Encoder Motor?


You can take this with a grain of salt but I am a junior in high school taking auto mechanics and my teacher use to work for a chevrolet dealership where they had a geo tracker come in because it would drive fine until placed in 4 wheel drive. Once placed in 4 wheel it would not move because front and rear differentials were geared differently from factory causing the wheels to lock up. If it has never been able to go into 4 wheel since you have owned it I hope this will help...

What to do about a 1996 ford f150 front differential problem?


Change the fluid in the differential and also add a couple of ounces of friction modifier. I would do the same for the transfer case.

It doesn't take long to learn when and how to use your truck's 4WD system. Follow these steps and you'll feel confident about engaging the system the next time you need to get out of a slippery situation.

For a conventional system, where you can select 2WD or 4WD, the instructions refer to engaging 4WD. For trucks with permanent 4WD, they refer to locking the center differential.

Time Required:
varies
Here's How:
  1. Refer to your owner's manual to find out how to engage your truck's 4WD mechanism.
  2. When driving in snow, mud, or just going off road, shift into 4WD when you get ready to leave solid ground. If you have lockable front hubs, lock them for those operations.
  3. For severe conditions, use low range if available. Before shifting into low range you must either stop or slow down to at least 3 mph to prevent grinding gears.
  4. When you return to normal conditions, shift out of 4WD or unlock the center differential. If the shifter doesn't want to move from 4WD or the differential lock stays engaged, don't panic, becaue the problem is normal and is caused by pressure on the gears.
    • Try backing in a straight line about 10 feet and try to move the shifter again.
    • If the shifter still won't move, try backing in an "S" pattern while trying to move the shifter.
  5. If you have lockable hubs, don't forget to unlock them when you return to dry pavement.
Tips:
  1. Vehicles with permanent 4WD are set up for everyday driving, but not necessarily for maximum traction on slick surfaces. Engaging the differential lock increases the vehicle's traction capabilities.
  2. Do not operate a locked 4WD on dry, hard surfaces. Doing that could cause damage to the driveshafts, differentials or transfer case.
What You Need:
Owner's Manual

Good luck and remember to rate this solution.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a 1993 chevy 1/2 ton pickup with 5.7 liter and I cant get the four wheel drive to work when i put it into four whell the rear wheels alternate when slipping as they should but nothing from the front...


First of all try checking your fuse box and make sure the 4X4 fuse is still good. If the fuse is good, move the shift lever for the 4X4 on the floor into 4 high, then get a friend to watch underneath when you move the vehicle a little bit to see if the front driveshaft is turning. If the front shaft going to your differential is turning the problem is probably the electric actuator on the differential.
