Four wheel drive system not working when engaged. 1987 Jeep

More often than not, the four wheel drive system does not function once engaged. When engaged, it acts as if something is in a bind and stops the engine. Would this be a transfer case problem of differential?

The not engaging leads me to believe that the problem is inside the transfer case. To verify that, remove the front driveshaft and engage the unit. if it still stalls the engine that's all you need to know. There should be plenty of used units available in local scrapyards for a reasonable price.

I don't know how to put my 1993 jeep wrangler into four wheel drive


To engage the four wheel drive, while rolling, pull the lever back one notch and that will engage the transfer case. You can easily do that up to speeds as high as 35mph. Pulling the lever all the way back will put it into 4 low which is not often used and may grind if it does not engage right away. That really doesn't matter much because that gear is only used for pulling heavy loads at low speeds. (I use mine about once every two years) If you do need to use it, generally you can engage it with the engine off without problems. The neutral position is used to disengage the wheels if the vehicle needs to be towed. If it fails to disengage, often backing up about twenty feet or so will help.

1998 isuzu trooper torque on demand lights go off when truck stops moving


It is Torque On Demand. When you are stopped there is no need for the front end to be engaged, no demand. Once you start moving, the lights should begin working as the demand for four wheel drive engagement increases, if the conditions require four wheel drive. It's the way the system works. Enjoy!
