Make sure there is no mud or garbage if the shifter mechanism . lubricate with cylicone spray. if still not working then will need to repair transfer case fork or slider.

How do I fix a loose shifter


If the shifter is very sloppy, making it hard to find the gears, bushings in the shift rod have gone bad. Buy shift rod bushings from NAPA, like $1.50 each, you need 4. Get under the car, and see the bolts holding the rod in place, one under the shifter, one near the transmission. Remove those bolts, install the bushings, 2 on each bolt, put it back together, and you should be good to go.

I changed my clutch and when I put it back together 4 low works 4 high doesn't it has a manual shift 2002 silverado


thats in the transfer case..did you get the linkage rods put in ok or did they bind up on reinstall..I had a suburban 4wd.. its basically the same..if its stuck in4w low..put the main transmission in neutral and work the transfer case shifter back and forth between all of its selections for a bit..these get hard to shift if they arent used much..also most of the time the vehicle needs to be rolling slowly to shift it..you will feel it shift in speeds under 5mph..good luck..

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.

4 wheel drive doesnt work.


Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.

This sounds like the linkage could have fallen or broken off. Have someone move the 4wd shifter while you look under the vehicle.

No probably not, first check the fuse for the 4wd in the fuse box if that's OK its likely the actuator on the front axle..........providing the shifter handle moves to the proper location and if its push button the lights light in the switch when selected...the actuator plugs into the wiring harness and screws into the front differential.an easy remove and replace part even for a novice.

Transfer case


you will have to take the shifter out of the transfer case,remove the shifter bushing, then look down into the transfer case.you will need a flash light,you will see the ends of two rods that have slots in them.take a long screwdriver and move the rods so the notches in them are even with oneanother.the rods will slide back and forth.once the notches are lined up you can shift your tranny.the bushing needs replacing in the shifter on the transfer case.look on EBAY and you will find them.
