Hi
If you look under the jeep by the transfercase
you will see the shifter for the 4wd a arm with a rod is on this goes to the tranfercase,, there is a ajuster on it if you turn the rod to the to the left with a plyers this will make it longer try a cpl turns at a time untill you feel it is locking in low range

98 Grand cherokee all time 4x4 wont shift into 4 lo


older post 1month
you failed to say what tires are touching, dry pavement or ice/snow or off road...... MATTERS big time.......!

the operators guide tells you not to do that.
the rules for 4Hi and low are different. RTM? yet?
last year ZJ
Quadra-Trac(tm) NV242 box. it is. full and part time box.
what does it (oper guide)tell you.
stay out of part time on dry roads. (clear?)
rule 2, save rule for Low Range.
low range is not full time 4wd.
if you fail to believe it , it will wind up and go crunch

here is the direct quote.... see last line,,, its 100% real.

My 1998 jimmy wont go in to four high low works fine


i am assuming that you have the shift on the go in your truck. with the motor running, put the truck in neutral, and try shifting between the ranges. If you have a manual shift, make sure the bolts that hold the shift arm from the shifter and on the transfer case have not loosened up. You can pull the boot off the top of the shifter and see if the slot is lined up, if not check your bolts under the truck

1986 s10 4x4,transfer case,loose manual shifter


theres locking pins that hold it in gear that kind of resemble a door latches it`s my guess that there springs are no good and they just are staying open allowing it to slip back out of gear.

You can try several things. You can stop the vehicle as if you are going into low range and shift the high range 2h, 4h, etc.. Ford advertises the Electric button type as "shift on the fly" but does not say the gears are synchronized to do that with manual engagement.

Change the lube this time to see if the lube is Milky. There have been floods, otherwise the case is sealed whether you park it or drive it. You still could have rust on the shift linkage. You need to move the linkage as you spray it. Then the offbeat chance something was bent from offroading. A Salvage Yard is a wonderful place to learn how a car is built. You may see their part looks different than yours.

Shifting to four wheel drive.


If the Amigo is like other fwd setups,you should be able to pull the floor shifter back one notch for fwd in the standard(or high)driving range.I don't know if you can shift "on the fly" with the Amigo,so I would shift it to 4x4 while stopped in nuetral. When you pull the shifter to the left(towards the driver)and all the way back,that should be 4x4 in the low range(for speeds under 20 mph only). I would not recomend that you drive you vehicle on the highway in low range....The button on the dash may actually be a light to let you know when you are using the fwd. Make sure you kick it back to 2wd when you return on dry pavement.Any Isuzu dealers' service department can also help you on the matter. Good Luck!

1988 suzuki samurai WONT MOVE


First thing just try to push or pull the 4x4 lever if you get it to move and it feels like it went into some gear try to drive the truck.If this works look on the shifter for the 4x4 and put it in 2 wheel drive (H2 is two wheel drive,H4 is 4x4 high,and L4 is 4x4 low range).Make sure you have the clutch depresed when you try to move the 4x4 lever.If you try this stuff with no fix try and look for clutch adjustment on the transmision you may need to adjust it or your clutch is bad.

I recently swapped my tranny. its a super t 10 4 speed, it worked fine when i pulled it from the 1980 camaro, iput it in my other 1980 and now my transmission wont go in any of the gears, it will go into...


Did you adjust the shift rods from the shifter to the trans shift arms. Take your shift rods loose and put shifter in neutral, and transmission arms in neutral, then adjust the rods so they slide in. Then your shifter matches your transmission and you should be able to shift just fine.
