If your vehicle has 4 wheel drive, then the 4low means you are in 4 wheel drive, low gear ratio. 4low is great for towing heavy loads, especially up hills, but it will be bad for your vehicle in the long run if you are not towing and just want to drive. If you can find out how to turn off the 4 wheel drive, or at least put it into 4hi then you should be set -- your owner's manual should have directions on how to do this (it is totally different from one car maker to another ... and sometimes even from one model of car to another). If you have a "shift - on - the - fly" 4 wheel drive, then you should be able to find a button or switch somewhere in the car that you can use to go to 4 high (4 wheel drive hi gear ratio) or 2hi (2 wheel drive high gear ratio).
If you can't find the information on how to fix it anywhere in your owner's manual (which is unlikely) you can buy a Haynes manual for your make and model of vehicle, and the directions for returning to 4hi or 2hi should be there. Good luck!

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.

I have water in my oil


This is the sign of a blown head gasket.
Since we don't know what caused the overheating in the first place, a crate motor, in the long run, may be the most cost effective means of resolving this issue.

My 4 wheel drive is automatic but i will go from 2 hi to 4low while sitting at a stop sign you dont have to touch a button for it to change when you start truck it might be in 4low and will not come out...


Hello and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

I don't know how many miles you have on your car, but it is possible that you may have a spark plug being fouled out either with oil or coolant. I had a Protege with 120k and it burned more oil than gas. Change #3 plug and get a good look at the plug you remove. Look for signs of contamination.

Yesterday my car's Battery sign shows up hile driving, when I check there was crack in the radiator's upper plastic cover about 4 inches and also accelrator belt broke, so question should I fix...


First, if the radiator is not leaking you don't need to do anything to it. Most of the time the plastic cover is so that people don't get burnt by the hot metal radiator.

I think you mean the alternator belt, not the accelrator belt. You can replace it yourself, by loosening the bolts holding it tight and then sliding the alternator towards the center of the engine. Then put the belt on and using something long and straight move the alternator to the outside of the engine and the alternator belt is very tight. Then tighten the bolts. Make sure that it didn't slip while tightening them and then start the car and make sure that the belt is tight and not wobbling.

if the starter is going out it will do exactly as you are describing, but that does not necessarily mean the starter is the issue. if you know where the starter is located something you can try is tap the starter a few times with a hammer use firm taps, but don't beat the stew out of it, then try to start the car usually it will work. normally the starter fails to start because the brushes inside it over time wear down and begin to stick the tapping of the hammer will usually free them temporarily and allow the car to start.

F-250 will not go into 4-low, 4-high is ok


Good Evening. 4high is a simple deal to get working. 4low has a few more steps. First of course is starting the truck, shifting down into neutral at a stop then put it in 4low. After doing so then put it down in drive 4low should now be engaged. And to take it back out of 4low simply reverse the operation. Any other questions let me know, becuase if it can do 4high the shifting motor can do 4low.

4 wheel drive issues, appears to work in 4low but not 4 high


yes it is the switch. the switches are bad about going out in chevrolets which I am very familiar with. generally speaking if it goes into 4wd period it eliminates the actuator, and it also means t-case is functioning, it is just the selector switch.
