How do I switch to 4x4 on a 93 jeep cherokee


Answer depends on which transfer case you have in yours. If the shifter for your 4wd has 2high( that's 2 wheel drive) as first position, you pull the lever back one notch and thats 4high (in 4wd) All the way back is 4 low (only used in very deep snow or pulling heavy loads, under 15mph) If you have two positions, (excluding N)
All the way forward is normal driving position...The transfer case automatically puts itself into 4wd when the rear wheels slip. 4low is as above, used so infrequently that most times you may find that the linkage is partially frozen (if so, spray with solvent and gently work shifter till it frees up)
Though it's not in the instructions, I find it's best to take your foot off the gas and select positions while rolling. It's just easier on the gears.

I just lifted my jeep 3". Now when i shift in 4


there are 2 possible reasons for this problem. first the shifter may not be throwing the linkage the right distance due to the lift. was this a body lift or suspention? second there may be an actuator on the front axle right hand side that is vacume operated.I think this is only on the yj's see that this has not come disconnected and even if it is still connected it could be the problem. they are prone to failure. you can get a posilock cable actuator at your local 4x4 shop. for the first problem you could try pulling the shifter a bit further like into neutral area and see it that makes it work.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

Jeep stuck in 4 wd and transfer case shifter moves about freely


OK, simple problem, and a quick fix...  (And I consider changing my own oil to be the extent of my automotive education.)  I had this happen today.  A little online research from the jeep community showed me the external cable that connects your 4WD knob with the arm on the transfer case is held on that arm with a plastic clip that is fond of disappearing.  
When the jeep cooled down, I crawled under, found the cable end hanging freely, and simply set it back on the arm.  With no clip it will pop off again, but it allowed me to shift back to 2WD and roll home.  I understand a zip tie will keep it in place until you get a 3/16 nut of some sort.  (Can't be more specific about the nut yet, I'm waiting for more info.)  
It was a relief to find out that I didn't need to have anything done with the transfer case, etc...  If you show the dealer the problem, I'm told they often want to replace the whole cable, as the clip comes as part of the whole.  Waste of time and $$$, and I canceled the appointment with the dealership when I learned the simplicity of the problem.

Jeep stuck in 4 wd and transfer case shifter moves about freely


SOUNDS LIKE THE SHIFT LINKAGE HAS BECOME LOOSE. THE GOOD NEWS IS, THE WARRANTY IS STILL IN EFFECT. PERHAPS A DEFECTIVE PART IS THE CAUSE? IT IS TOUGH TO SAY THE EXACT REASON WHY THIS HAPPENED WITHOUT LOOKING AT IT FIRST HAND. SORRY FOR YOUR INCONVENIENCE. HOPE THEY SOLVE THIS MYSTERY SOON SO YOU CAN GET BACK ON THE ROAD, AND OFF ROAD TOO.

Don't know how to use 4WD on 1995 jeep cherokee


the jeep cherokee has 2 different types of 4 wd systems. the command trac has 2 wd, 4hi, neutral and 4 low. if driving on pavement make sure it's in 2 wd. it also has shift on the fly, up to 60 mph you can move the lever to 4 hi and it will not hurt anything. if trying to go to 4 low, be rolling less than 5mph and put the trans shifter in neutral and move the 4wd selector to 4 low. do the reverse to move back to 4 hi or 2 wd

Pulling boats


this all depend on where an how far you want to pull the boat. Also the terrain. A lot of hills ect. I would say a small boat no bigger than 16ft. make sure the traier is balanced only load on a concrete ramp. Try not to load on to steep of a ramp. Also try avoid a lot of hills the main difference on trucks and cars among other things is the transmission and the way its geared. Some transmitions even have thier own cooling sytem due to the fact that towing anything tens to put a lot of strain all transmissions.After a while check your tran fluid to make sure it isnt burning. Pull the stick and look at it. if its not the redish color and if it smells burnt i recomend discontinuing towing. Also look into uhual they sold me a hitch for an 85 300zx was perfect. It had all the specs with it.
