Hello

When the Check Engine light the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Changing vehicle speed sensors for 09 silverado, per error code P2771. Told there are 2, where under hood are they and what do they look like.


They are on the transmission under the truck. One is usually by the tail shaft and the other should be a few inches away from it. They are both two wire sensors I believe.

Four wheel drive not working on a 1990 chev 1500 pickup with manual tranmission?


Yep! it does sound as if you've lost the proper connection between your engine flywheel and the transmission clutch-plate. That baby is crying for your TLC after being such a faithful trooper all these years.

4 wheel drive does not work and the four wheel drive lights flash when you try to put it in four wheel drive. i have tried to replace the four wheel drive switch and it does the same thing.


There is a four wheel drive relay unit located up under your dashboard on the passenger's side that has gone bad. 2 bolts hold it in, and just a wire bundle connector to plug into. Costly to replace. Maybe about $200 just for the 4 WD relay unit.

96 FORD EXPLORER XLT 4X4 LIGHT FLASHING


Does the 4x4 "actually" work because this is a signal that the system has a problem. Its like a check engine light that comes on or flashes when there is a problem with the engine or emission system.

1993 4X4 BLASER 4WHEEL DRIVE


Your blazer is equipped with a shift on the fly four wheel drive. That means that at speeds less than fifteen miles per hour you can shift into or out of four wheel drive by simply pushing the four wheel high button. If you wish to shift into four wheel low. Stop, put the transmission into park or neutral, and push the four wheel low button. Same procedure for shifting back out. Never shift into or out of four wheel low while moving. And be careful in four wheel low. At full throttle your still barely moving, you don't want to blow your engine up!
