Question about 1992 Toyota 4Runner
Hi guys, I hope someone has an answer for me I am seriously confused with my problem. On my 4runner, I tried shifting from 2H to 4L and a knocking sound occured when passed from 2H to 4H. Since then, 4L goes fine except it jumps when you start from a complete stop, neutral does it's job (no power to the any wheel ), but 4H shows a huge lack of power compared to 2H. Now the thing is you can shift the lever from 4H to 2H no problem back and fourth while rolling at any speed WITHOUT TOUCHING THE CLUTCH !!!!!!! The problem is I don't care if I can't use 4WD I don't really need it, the thing is that, even if I put it in 2H it stays engaged in 4H, thats what i mean i can move freely the lever without touching the clutch. Also, when i start from a complete stop and do a hard right turn like u turn kind the rear right tire squeals like if i was holding the hand brake and the truck jumps. I just don't get why the front differential stays engaged and the rear one shows a great resistance. Thanks for your help, I hope this isn't too much of a head ache!!!!!
This might sound like a silly question but did you put the truck in neutral before you shifted into 4L ? Reason being transfer case damage can occure if it wasnt in neutral when you shifted into 4L.

Testimonial: "Hi, actualy, concern8ing your question, the transmission was at neutral :S"
Sound like to me that the transfer case is stuck in low range cause when you turn your wheels in low range it will bounce like that i had the same problem years ago all you have to do is crawl under with a 1/2 rachet and turn your transfer case back to 2h
