Your manual hubs sound like they are bound up, you need to take them apart and clean and re-grease the components, you may need special sockets to remove the hub.

When turning the wheel all the way, going around a corner, i hear a clicking sound, what is the probable cause?


Quite often clicking noise is from the front axle trunion (U-joint).

You can see them, one per side, using a tool simular to a long screw driver and gently

prying upward is one way to see if there is play in the u-joint.

When they get worn they may click, snap or clunk, but usually click in 2WD.

Four wheel wont disengage. had switch for 4x4 set to 2wd and the light switched to 4wd while driving down the road and the four wheel drive engaged. Tried to switch from 2wd to 4wd and back but didnt...


if it is a turn knob that puts it in 4x4.then a wire under the truck is touching the exhaust pipe making it do this. I had this happen to mine. It will be 2 wires so they more and likely came loose.

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

I have a 1994 Saturn SL2. There is a knocking noise coming from the front passenger side of the car possibly near the the tire. It's not the motor because you hear it more on a bumpy road. After about 2...


If it is a constant knock, I would check the cv shaft,(drive shaft ) on that side. you can grab it and there should be no movement up or down or side to side. If it is the shaft and that much noise it will move quite a bit. Get this replaced as soon as possible. this is not safe to drive and could cost you a transmission if it breaks completely. If you need to drive it to a garage take back roads and drive slowly. best is to get it towed. If you 've got the tools and want to do it yourself let me know and I can guide you thru it. Struts will make noises but only on bumps, the same with ball joints.

Driving down the road a loud humming noise is present. when slighlty turning the steering wheel the noise quit. could it be the hub assembley? I have a 2002 durango .


I don't thing so, listen carefully the next time you are driving and see if you can hear what side it is on, If you identify a side the most lightly problem would be the wheel baring (runs through the centre of the hub). If it is the bearing, it will get progressivley worse and will need to be replaced. Good luck!

Clicking noise in front end 2001 dodge ram 4x4


I have a 2002 Dodge 1500 Ram 4x4, quad cab and had the same problem. In 2wd the clicking was constant, in 4wd it would go away. Also I had no 4wd while in 4wd, found that out after a snow storm. I took my truck to a buddies garage (a Dodge mechanic), he said this is a common problem. He pulled the drivers side wheel, hub, axle and stub axle. The stub axle splines where it goes into the CV joint and and the internal splines in the CV joint were gone. Almost smooth even. The wheel bearing was completely wore out too. I ended up replacing the hub assembly, both the inner and outer axles. Not a cheap fix either I have about $600 repair bill, but it's back on the road now smooth and quite.
