Remove transfer case shield. Remove clamp on boot
where front drive shaft meets transfer case. use a flat
screwdriver to pry free end up and release clamp. (you need a special clamp tool to reinstall clamp )
Remove 4 bolts at differential end that hold U joint Retainers to yoke. Slide drive shaft to rear enough to clear yoke. then let drive shaft drop so it clears differential and slide forward until it come off transfer case shaft.

Place vehicle in 4wd (high or low). This will hold the front drive shaft still for the rest of the test. Jack up the front end of the vehicle. Remove the actuator. Have a buddy spin the right front wheel while you use a long punch or screwdriver to try to manually engage the diff. The left front wheel should spin in the other direction if the diff is good. Also before you check the diff you need to grab the front driveshaft and make sure it is locked, If it spins freely when the truck is in park and in 4wd with the front end raised then problem is in transfer case. If you can't make the diff engage manually with punch then the problem is in the diff. If front diff engages manually then the problem is the actuator. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: 4x4 won't engage. 2001 Ford F-150. front axle actuator is new

If you know that the actuator on the front of the truck is good check the wiring for any breaks. If it is anything like my truck the wires on the front actuator should run to a switch on the top of the t-case. If you cant find a break in the wires running to the t-case your problem is most likely the switch.

I have a 1979 ford f250 4x4 and the tranfer case will go in but it wont turn the front driveline


I am a bit rusty on the 22 year old part. Someone else may be more informative, but on some of the 4x4 actuators they used different methods of moving the internal parts.

The actuator used to be Vacuum operated and the part would move a certain distance to put the transfer into high or low mode. If the actuator did not fully extend or contract you would be between gears; sort of in Neutral.

You are now faced with the front driveshaft free-wheeling(But which end?). Disconnect one end of the front driveshaft so you can feel whether the transfer case is free-wheeling or if the other end of the shaft is turning anything in the front axle. With the front hubs locked, the front driveshaft should not turn or if jacked up, the tires should spin when the front driveshaft is turned by hand.

When you are assured that the front axle is fine, then the problem can only be the transfer case. I remember people had a lot of trouble with the actuators.

I hope this gives you a way to test which end of the front driveshaft is the problem.

There are some Blogs on the internet like Ford4x4Owners.com and Off-Road Blogs which can be very helpful. I hope my suggestion helps.

How to tell the difference from oil pan and transmission oil pan when changing motor oil on 2001 chevy suburban 4x4 5.3


The transmission pan is usually fartherdown towards to driveshaft, and the oil pan is on the more side toward the driver side. You can jack your car up, and there is a 15mm bolt located under the oil pan, and it should say oil on it, it could get greasy and dirty and you might not be able to see the "OIL" imprinted to the oil drainage bolt.

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.

1999 Chevy Blazer makes noise


Check your driveshaft universal joint (u joint). When the needle bearings go, this is the sound it makes. To check, chock all wheels front and rear, put in neutral, if 4x4, put 4x4 in neutral also, go under vehicle, grab driveshaft at u joint and try to turn back and forth, watching for play, wobble in u joint. U should be able to see it. Let me know how u do.

Changing the Fluid would help But, It will not solve the Problem. It sounds like you may have a Broken tooth on a Gear inside the Transfer Case. The only real way to fix this is to Take the Transfer Case off and check the Gears and Electronics. Maybe even get it Overhauled.
