Is it transmission problem when after applying break it will hardly go if not transmission what could it be


Sounds like there is an issue with the brake system. Either the brake caliper not releasing on one wheel, or the brake master cylinder is not allowing the brake fluid to return to the reservoir. Front wheel drive car, I assume. So, Jack the vehicle up so that the front (driving) wheels are off the ground, support car with jack stands. Start the car, place in gear and see if the wheels rotate, or which wheel rotates. Apply the brakes slowly, release the brakes, and see if there is one wheel that will not spin. If one wheel will not spin, it is that caliper that is not releasing. It could be the caliper or the brake hose collapsed internally. If neither wheel turns, then I would suspect the master cylinder is not allowing fluid to return to the reservoir. Remember, however, it could also be an issue with the anti-lock brake system. Anti-lock systems do not normally cause this problem though.

I have a huge loud knocking noise when i engage the 4wd on my 1999 navigator. i replaced the solinoid on the transfer case but it didnt stop. i thought it was maybe engaging the tranfer case 1/2 way.


I had a 4x4 year ago. Do you have front locking hubs ? I don't think so if you did I would ask if they were in or out. If there is nothing else It has to be coming from the transfer case. As far as I know no manufacture makes a true 4 wheel drive but Jeep except for maybe Raptor or Power Wagon. Most come with an open diff in the rear one wheel drive unless you order it special and the front you can't even order a locker if you wanted to 99.+% of 4x4s have open diffs in the front. Jack up one front wheel and one rear wheel if you didn't order a special rear end if you try to drive off the jacks you will sit there and spin your 2 wheel drive and not move.Ford says if you have worn tires or not the same air pressure in all tires it will do this. I think you have a bad u joint or pieces broken in the transfer case or it is out of adjustment. Jack car up like I said before and when the wheels spin without pulling it off the jack stands crawl under and see where the noise is coming from front or transfer case.I wonder if your shift motor could be bad they are about 65 dollars

I have a 2000 z 71 all leds work replaced frt axel motor and wtched it work while out it goes in low range but still in 2 wheel drive like the frt end wont engage is there any thing eles i can look at ...


Check the transfer case. Put a jack under the rear axle and jack up the rear wheels. Have a helper put in 4 wheel and the trans in drive. Have him/her ease off the brake and see if the rear wheels spin. If they spin, 4x4 isn't working. If the truck tries to pull forward with the rear wheels up then it works. Now, if the rear wheels are spinning carefully look under the truck and see if the front driveshaft is spinning along with the rear driveshaft. If the front shaft is spinning then it is an axle problem. If the front shaft is not spinning then it is a transfer case problem. GM has a problem with the NP263 case.

4x4 quit working


Jack up the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Have someone get in it and put it in 4wd and drive. Release the brake. Rear wheels are spinning only right. Don't get under it but look under it and see if the front driveshaft is spinning. If the shaft is spinning but the wheels aren't it is likely a bad front axle actuator. If the front shaft isn't spinning it is a transfercase problem.

Right rear axel makes noise


You need to jack it up, And put it on jack stands. Its a safty thing. Next spin the tires with the engine, Put it in drive. let the Brake off slow. Don't forget to block the front tires with a brick, or a 4x4 or 2 pieces of fire wood. Put one under each front tire. Now run the engine 30 to 35 miles per hour.With the tires still on your Rover. Pay close attn to the noise as the tires spin. Now pull the wheels and pull the rotor or drum off. Now if its a bearing you will here it. Be sure to let off the gas pedal very slowly so you won't hurt the drive train. We checked wheel balance, Wheel bearings, Brake noise, even out of round tires can be spoted while running the tires on and off to do the test. its like driving it down the road but you can get down there and look and hear things. I sure hope this is helpfull to you.

My 1999 Blazer 4X4 will not go into 4 wheel drive.


The cv shafts will turn in 2wd but the front driveshaft should not. Can you jack up all 4 wheels to test this?

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee limited 135k miles.. 2wd rear... when i start off and when i stop i hear something like a dragging sound coming from the rear... what could cause this?


It could be your brakes. Jack up the car, put on safety stands, block front wheels at front and back of tires, put Jeep in neutral, try to spin rear wheels, listen for any rubbing, dragging noise. It could either be brakes not releasing (feel the center of the wheel after driving, is it hot?), or a brake component loose and floating around inside the drum. 'Check this 1st, let me know what you find, then we can continue if necessary.

I have a 1988 chevy pickup. The 4 wheel drive does not work. the transfer case is kicking in but the hubs are not. The front shaft is spinning in 4 wheel drive bu the hubs are not engaging


OK If you have manual locking hubs, one could be acting up. Jack the rear wheels off the ground and block the front wheels. Be sure you have the trucks back axel supported, not just on jacks! Then, with a person in the drivers seat, put it in gear. The 'driver' will turn the steering from lock to lock, while you check [from outside the truck, not under]] for the shaft at the front wheels that is spinning. This is the prob ! Frankster016
