You need to change all four tires.The computor is noticing the slight change it tire speed from front to rear and thinks it's slipping so it is trying to put it in 4x4.You will ruin your trany other wise.

Since fitting 2 new tyres my Kia sorento 2005 2.5 TD has developed a grating noise from transfer case.the noise stops when fuse is removed.any ideas?


unfortunately on 4 wheel drive the tires must match changing 2 tires may have already done damage to the transfer case you will have to take it in and have it checked by a transmission shop good luck hopefully it hasn't done a lot of damage

How big of a tire can I fit on a 2008 Kia sorento 4WD


I currently own a 2008 Kia Sorento LX 4WD and I am Running a 255/70r16 General Grabber HTS and i have not issues on the car hitting or the tires rubbing. I have about 50k on the tires and never had an issue. If i turn the tires all the way it has maybe a few centimeters of clearance. I will let you know ounce i switch to a more all terrain tire see if i still have the same clearance.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??


I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

I have a 2005 kia sorento 80,000 miles a couple of weeks ago this roaring noise comes from the rear end and seems to have got louder with the tire rotation


Check to see if the surface of the tires have even wire, because that will give off a moaning sound that you are hearing while the car is driving. The only other logic that comes to mind could be rear wheel bearings.

I just bought a 2005 Grand Cherokee and noticed the road noise is terrible when driving. Can this be corrected?


There are lots of possible causes, and they can all be fixed.

One is alignment. If there is a bent tierod or something from hitting a curb, the front tires will be scrapping sideways slightly, and very noisy.
Very high traction tires are also very noisy inherently.
Wheel bearing will also do this, but unlikely at this new age.
Rotating radial tires from one side to another will cause excess tire noise because cords will be slack in the tire. But there is not much that can be done if that is the case except new tires.
Tire pressure either to high or low can be very noisy.
Wheel balance can do it also.

Four wheel drive locked in but front tires wont spin in 96 chevorlet sliverado


If the Tires wont spin then it isnt locked in.
If it really is engaged like you think it is and they dont turn then something is broken in the differential. If that was the case then it should be makeing lots of noise.
Now it is very very common for the electro-mechanical device that engages the the 4wheel drive at the differential to go bad. If you look at the front differential you cant miss the 4 wheel drive actuator. It has a couple wires that come out and plug into the wiring harness.
Usually if this part fails I understand the 4wheel drive indicator lights wont come on? I could be wrong on that. My sub is 3 years older and that was the case with it.

My 1991 jeep cherokee will not engage all four tires when its put into 4wheel drive. the T-case engages but for some reason only the 2 back tires spin. is there a vacum line that may be cracked?


could be, there are lines that run to frt diff, theres a vacuum reservoir that stores vacuum that comes from engine then theres aline tovacuum control switch then to vacuum swith to light the 4wd light and a line to shift motor that engauges the front wheels, check all these line and you might find a bad leaking line hope this helps.

My 03 Kia Sorento will not go into 4wheel drive. I've tried rolling both back and front with it on then off. Now It's not engaged but the 4wheel low indicator is on. Is there a vacuum valve somewhere...


Trace the vacuum line from the left front wheel (drivers side) into the engine compartment tee, from the tee it goes up to the vacuum valve. You will see the wires on the bottom of the valve.
The vacuum hoses tend to break at the wheels,check that.
Also, check the hose running into the valve from a little canister, and make sure no hoses are disconnected from the cannister...
Good luck.
