this is rather common. The front axle diff will have a hard time disengaging if the gears are under load. You need a load change (get of the acc pedal, move steering a bit left right, briefly go to neutral on the auto transmission, then back to drive). This will help to get the front diff loose again. Sometimes it really takes some time to disengage! Mostly the problem is gone when you stop the car, switch off engine, release brake, then start again and drive - and voila- back to 2WD. On hard surfaces the transmission can go into a wind-up state (because of different wheel speed when cornering), esp the center diff (4WD and center diff locked) then is under such load that the car virtually stops driving or you can hear crackling noises and tyre slip on tarmac!
If they made a right hand drive model you would need to get the front clip, steering, harnesses, dash and interior for it. Then have a body shop remove the front of your van and install the front from the right hand drive. Literally everything from the steering wheel forward would have to be removed in order to make it work. You would be looking a tens of thousands of dollars to make this happen.
Explore the problem to see if its the power steering, or physical steering or engine:
Does it stall when its in neutral and you go to full lock?
If so its the power steering, or the engine isnt ticking over fast enough to generate the extra pump pressure needed when on full lock. Check pump belts are good and tension is correct. Then buy a used idle valve and swap it out.
Also do basic checks to see if wheels are catching on some part of car. Jack it up so front wheels are off ground, on full lock in neutral do the wheels turn freely, or catch on something? Slowly lower the vehicle down and check same as you do it. When its down put it in gear and see if it stalls.
When you changed the ****** fluid was it brown? If so I regret to inform you, you may need a new transmission. The brown color is due to the clutches in the trans, wearing down over time. Does it shift hard when you drive it? If it does that is another sign the trans has gone out the window.
On any suv with 2 and 4 wheel drive options 4 low generally means that the transmission is in 4 wheel drive low gearing option so that the most possible torque is transferred to the wheels by way of what would be called a granny gear. What you will need to do is check your 4 wheel drive settings to see if the transmission has been put into this option which is either on a separate shift lever or a push button either on the shift handle or on the dash. Your owners manual should also direct you to where the selector is at.
same car with the AC problem. Timing is not going to make this all happen.
If its jaulting as an automatic, through the gears, then probably check and change the fluid and the filter in the transmission. Usual jolting is from lack of fluid pressure, caused by lack of or blocked filter.
Start up could be anything from a weak battery to lack of fuel/choke. Try a new fuel filter, air filter element, check your oil and change the spark plugs.
(Symptoms of bad ignition timing are misfire and run on also extreme lack of power and rough idle. The car will also shudder and keep running a few seconds after the key is switched off.)
The steering shaking from left to right at low speed could be a few things. Is it only happening at low speed? Sometimes its hard to tell at high speed as it is happening so fast the frequency is almost unable to be felt. However when you brake it should be pretty strong if its a mechanical fault, ie disc warped or bent wheel.
#Check your power steering fluid and hoses for leaks
the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out
Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
possible faults - *check the shifting cable selector is aligned with the neutral starting switch * check engine mounts *make sure the fluid level is between the marks on the dipstick running hot * overdrive friction and drive plates have worn out * the torque converter or oil pump has a problem *do a torque converter stall test hope you used only mitsubishi automatic oil when changed *check the throttle position sensor * temp sensor for the auto the TCU has faults or needs to be replaced
