Caution Caution. It sounds as if you my have a faulty steering knuckle (constant velocity shaft ) If this is the case this can be dangerous. However, you could also be experincing a situation where the transfer case (four wheel drive unit ) is failing to shift all the way into gear. If this is a manual shift, the problem is in the linkage. If it is an electric shift the problem is actuator, soleniod, or relay.

Abs problem


sounds like you got a bad wheel speed sensor,,,one of them is misreading and causing then sensor to show 0 mph before you are stopped and the other 3 are showing speed so the car thinks its skidding due to the one showing 0 mph, so it activates the abs,,,you may or may not have a abs light on,,,the dealer will have to hook it up to the scanner and see when they drive it which sensor is dropping out,,,common on gm cars

1999 Chevy 4x4 engaging


Check the solenoid at the front axel. This is a rather common prob. First check that power is at the axel, got power, clean and put it back. Please do not even look at the tranfer case! At worst you may need to replace the axel solenoid! Frankster016
