In most 4x4's low range is used so infrequently that it binds up. Hopefully a linkage rod slid out of adjustment or came off and you can re-adjust or re - connect it. The setup in my cherokee is pretty much the same as yours and it tends to bind going into low (there is nothing else wrong with it though). One of mine (also a 93) actually refuses to engage unless you turn the engine off and then select that gear and is likely due to internal transfer case wear.(hey...it's old!!) On some I've worked on, just spraying everything down with wd40 and working the lever back and forth is enough to free up the linkage. One thing you don't want to do is pull really hard on the lever...that's when you break stuff!!!

Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill


the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

Hi I'm an owner of a 1998 Honda Oddysey. I would like know the mechanics of using its automatic gear transmissions and specific function. For example when do I use D3 or D2 etc... And how do I shift...


Hi,
Gear usage.
The Drive is for normal driving.
D2 is for hill/steep climbing drive.
D3 is for hill/steep going down drive.
If you have overdrive button, use it when you exceed 60mph.
That's all you have to do when you see roads that is going up nor down.

Thaks for asking FixYa!

I have toyota axio g grade 2007 december car.what does it mean S & B in gear system.


The short answer:

S is for low speeds with quick pickup.
S is not economical. Thats why the eco light is off.

Use B when you're climbing down steep hills and needs to slow down without overheating the brakes.


The long answer:
  • Brake (B)A mode selectable on some Toyota models. In non-hybrid cars, this mode lets the engine do compression braking, also known as engine braking, typically when encountering a steep downhill. Instead of engaging the brakes, the engine in a non-hybrid car switches to a lower gear and slows down the spinning tires. The engine holds the car back, instead of the brakes slowing it down. For hybrid cars, this mode converts the electric motor into a generator for the battery. It is not the same as downshifting in a non-hybrid car, but it has the same effect in slowing the car without using the brakes. GM called this HR (hill retarder) and GR (grade retarder) in the 1950s.


S has 2 possibilities

  • Second (2 or S)This mode limits the transmission to the first two gear ratios, or locks the transmission in second gear on Ford, Kia, and Honda models. This can be used to drive in adverse conditions such as snow and ice, as well as climbing or going down hills in the winter time. Some vehicles will automatically shift up out of second gear in this mode if a certain RPM range is reached in order to prevent engine damage. Although traditionally considered second gear, there are other names used. Chrysler models with a three-speed automatic since the late 1980s have called this gear 3 while using the traditional names for Drive and Low.
  • S or SportThis is commonly described as 'Sport mode'. It operates in an identical manner as 'D' mode, except that the upshifts change much higher up the engine's rev range. This has the effect on maximising all the available engine output, and therefore enhances the performance of the vehicle, particularly during acceleration. This mode will also downchange much higher up the rev range compared to 'D' mode, maximising the effects of engine braking. This mode will have a detrimental effect on fuel economy. Hyundai has a Norm/Power switch next to the gearshift for this purpose on the Tiburon. GM also used S to indicate a "super" mode, being the same as the 2 position on a Chrysler, shifting between only first and second gears.


Dont use B or S for general driving as both are very low on fuel efficiency.

How fast should i go in 4wd low


Your no going too fast for sure. This gear is designed to crawl...also known as a granny gear. You should never have to use this LOW gear, unless your climbing a steep hill, or severly stuck is sugar sand.

What is the proper way of using overdrive,how and when you have to use it?


If you are not climbing steep hills or towing, leave it on all the time. Turn it off for low speed/high strain driving like towing, climbing and off-roading.

i hope this helps

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.

4h means high range 4wd and 2L and 4L means 2 wheel and 4 wheel low range. low range is used when going through washouts and down washed out hills etc. do not use the brake as the vechile may slide. low range is basically just letting the car do the work and idle it down hills etc where 4wd is needed. don't try to drive normally while any 4wd is engaged as you will damage it.
