I have a 1994 k1500 6.5l turbo diesel and every time I put it into 4hi my truck goes about two feet then I hear a loud clunk and the truck feels as though it is going over a speedbump in the front because...


Wow. A snapped side shaft sounds serious. If you lift the front end of the truck, (or the rear end for that matter) the wheels will appear to be counter rotating, it is the way a differential works. If you turn the left wheel forward, the right wheel will turn backwards, and vice versa.
When you change to 4wd the front end does make a rather loud clunking sound as the gears engage. You should therefore change while the truck is stationary, then slowly move forward or back until the 4wd engages, then take off.
If your truck went OK on ice, it should go as well on pavement, just don't try to engage 4x4 while moving.

1999 jeep transfer case wheels turns hard in turns


Sounds like its locked in 4x4. First find an empty parking lot and then put your Jeep in reverse back up about 15 to 20 feet and make sure the jeep is in 2wd that should unlock the front. Dont be affraid to give it a little gas when backing up.

I have a 93 Ford Explorer 4x4 sometimes while starting to drive in 2 wheel drive there is a lot of clunking noise coming from the front end and the only way to stop it is to go in reverse for about 10...


It sounds like your transfer case needs servicing. Drain the fluid & check for metal particles. Some of the older trucks required reversing to disengage the 4x4

I was stopped with the car in neutral and selected 4wd hw the 4x4 light is on but did not hear it engage and now I cannot get the 4x4 light to go off....tried many different combos of brake, neutral etc.


Do you have the extra shift lever on the floor or the "shift on the fly" electric selector? My 1999 only needs to be put in Neutral(with brake pedal pressed) for the Low range and the shift from 2wheel drive to 4wheel high is seamless with the Electric selector.

You might try putting the truck in reverse for a couple of feet, then to Park, and back to Neutral or Drive. Then use the Electric selector. Your year model may require a foot on the brake.

Ford has a style of selector that uses 1 wire to the Shift servo for all the drive ranges. There are resistors in the selector switch with each position making a different voltage. If the LED backlit bulb in the selector is dirty, it can throw off the voltage. I understand that the best access to the selector switch is through the opening for the radio. Once the radio is removed there are 2, 1/4inch screws holding the selector to the dash.

You can replace the selector or attempt to clean it as access is possible by removing 3 clips on the part. This made the LED changeable by providing access. There is a spring and checkball which makes the selector click into place and stay where you put it.

You can also try to clean the connections on the plugin for the selector with Electronics spray. Thats all you may need if you can jockey around the spray can to squirt the terminals on the selector switch.

With luck, my opening instructions may solve your problem. It is possible your mechanical shift linkage for the Park,Reverse,Neutral,Drive has too much play in it and an interlock is just not lining up. If you have another type of 4x4 with the extra lever on the floor there are different instructions.

I hope you feel my information was very helpful and complete. You can contact us again for more help.

Got a 2003 silverado with 4.8 4x4 wont go foward or reverse motor will rev up but not move


Your transfer case my be in neutral, or your going to have Transmission issues.
Loud bang, grinding sound, loss of all gears, and a binding driveshaft: snapped output shaft. Try to wiggle driveshaft - if more than 0.020" play, that's the sign. R&R.
No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is broken.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

I have a 2005 liberty. When I shift out of 4x4, I drive about half to a full mile then it clunks when it disengages.Feels like hitting a real small speed bump.


normal but if you read the manule it says disengage 4x4 and then shift into reverse go 5 feet then it will disengage easier and disengage right away

Tension in steering column, bad jerking when backing up, parking and turning slow.


if this is a 4x4 vehilce, make sure the switch to activate the 4x4 system is in 2WD. This sound like the 4WD has been engaged. Once the 4WD is engaged and you make turns on dry pavment this tension you're feeling will happen. This is a conflict inside the 4x4 system due to dry roads, the clutches in the rear differentail or transfer case are binding. The only time you engage the 4x4 is on wet/slipperly surface.
