Usually...nothing can explain the features on your car better than the owners manual. It may seem boring, but you would be surprised how much you can learn about the operation of your vehicle by doing so. This also helps remind you about maintenance of critical components on your car...thus insuring your car runs properly for a long time. All wheel drive vehicles have a lot more running gear and fortunately are almost always managed by the on board computer. As a result, your drive wheels are kept to a minimum....that is...propelling the vehicle by one set of axles at a time (front or rear wheels) effectively....saving gas. Of course, when the computer senses a loss of traction, say at the front wheels...the rear wheels kick in. In bad weather, this makes for a safer vehicle to drive. To answer your question above....If your vehicle has all wheel drive, you should be able to drive it at any speed ( in automatic, the computer manages the drive wheels for you...if you have a feature that allows you to put the car in all wheel drive "manually"...thats what you'll have...all wheels driving all the time. However, in this mode, it will use more gas....hence the reason we drive most of time set to automatic....Thats what the computer is for....to manage engine and transmission gear, emission control...and ultimately provide the best fuel economy.

The analog clock in a 2003 lincoln aviator spins fast, it's not working right


Look under the hood on the driver's side near the wheel well and also look up under the steering wheel, closer to the door. Those are the fuse boxes and extra fuses.

1999suburban won't switchfrom 4 wheel to 2 wheel drive when pushing auto dash buttons


Try it while backing a straight line. This was how the old manual hubs released. The autolock hubs may be worn just enough to hang up and not relaease as they should. Backing up will give that extra nudge.

My 4 wheel drive selection switch lite does not work. Does the 4 wheel drive system still work properly?, or is it an indication that something is wrong?


Drive to a dirt or gravel surface and push the 4wd button. Take off fast enough to spin the tires. If only the back tires spin, then 4wd is not working.

ON THE 2008 FORD ESCAPE, WHEN THE ROADS ARE COVERED IN SNOW AND ICY, SHOULD THE TRACTION BUTTON BE PUSHED IN SO THAT THE DASH LIGHTS UP WITH "TRACTION". THIS BUTTON IS ALWAYS OFF, WHEN SHOULD IT...


This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

I currently drive an A6 and would like to buy a Q7 but I have heard so much about excessive tyre wear that I am reluctant to proceed with the purchase of a new Q7 Can I have your comments please? Have Audi...


On average, a set of front tyres, on a front wheel drive A6, will do about 25k,the rears do about 40k.
so when you go up to a quattro expect to do about 20 to 25k on a set of four.as,if driven hard,the extra grip on tarmac,on wet fast roads is fantastic,compared to any two wheel drive car.the only down side is you must NOT take your foot OFF the gas going round a fast wet road.(try one out and see for yourself).tottaly different driving style.

How fast can your drive in four wheel drive?


I wouldn't really take it over 25 MPH in low, and 45MPH in high. 4 wheel drive is for in times of poor traction and shouldn't really be used all the time. It is a supplement. Mind that if your truck is a manual your shifting will be need quite often. Also, don't use on dry pavement, or while making tight turns, This will damage the locking front hubs. If you have any other questions, please ask.

I have a 92 celica with a main bearing seal leak


Hi there;

All I can tell you with the information I have is it you will be charged about 6.0 hours for a two wheel drive & about 15.5 hrs for an all wheel drive. You will be looking @ around $30.00 for the seal & then you will most likely be charged for some oil & shop supplies.
So if your garage charges say $90.00/hr your looking @ about $600.00 plus aplicaple taxes for a two wheel drive & about $1500.00 for al al wheel drive.
Keep in mind if the car is a standard this would likely be a real good time to closely inspect the clutch & be ready to spend another $300-$500 for the parts for the clutch. you shouldnt have to pay any extra in labor to replace the clutch.

Good luck, Hope this helps.
Farrout!
