First, make sure the manual release screw is seated tight.(port side of engine mount) ..Does the pump run and just not lift? Does the motor jump and jerk while you are trying to trim up? Can you lift the engine by hand while you are trimming? Have you filled the fluid reservoir with fluid? - There is a cap with a slot on the reservoir - MAKE SURE the engine if at full tilt - fill the reservoir.. you can use Dexron type III transmission fluid.... check these items and reply to me.
didnt specify type of machine( generic answer)some machines have an electrical assist joy stick check switchs if hydraulic check the r check fluid level in the hydraulics the tilt uses less fluid to the piston than the lift arms ----check the hydro lines and connections doesnt happen all the time but try bleeding lift lines air or debris in lines
If you have to ask how to replace the transfer case, you probably aren't set-up to replace it. This is a large mechanical item attached to the transmission. For the inexperienced person, it is horrible job to do on the ground/in a drive way. Ideally, the car should be on a lift and will require a transmission jack either way. In addition, fluids have to be drained and refilled by way of a fluid pump.
I would highly suggest you find a mechanic for this job. If you are still wanting to try it, go to your local parts store and get a repair manual for your vehicle (this is a fairly involved process and you need the book). Plan on having at least one friend to help, a good jack, jack stands, ramps (I still suggest an overhead lift/rack), specified replacement fluid, hand pump, hard flat level working surface, a free weekend, and probably a stout beverage for after it is all done! And most importantly, have a back-up plan/somewhere to take it if you can't finish the job
behind the cab on the passengers side should be all the fluid conainers for this truck.. you may need to tilt the cab to acess some of these..the brake unit may also be under the floor area on this truck and can be found with the cab tilted..forward..be sure the cab support is locked in before you look under there.. these can crush you if they arent locked in..
THE 4T40 E 4T45 E AND 4T65 E THESE TRANSMISSIONS DONT HAVE A FILL TUBE WITH DIP STICK.THOSE TRANSMISSION VECHICLE HAS TO BE PUT ON A LIFT AND LEVEL. TRANSMISSION HAS A FLUID CHECK PLUG LOWER HOUSING TRANSMISSION JUST ABOVE THE OIL DRAIN PLUG.TO CHECK FLUID TRANSMISSION NEED TO BE OPERATING TEMPERATURE. WITH ENGINE RUNNING AND TRANSMISSION FLUID PLUG REMOVE IF TRANSMISSION FLUID POURS OUT. CHECK PLUG HOLE.YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TRANSMISSION FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.IF FLUID DONT DRIP OUT HOLE NEED TO ADD A PINT AT A TIME.IF FLUID DRIPS OUT SLOWLY FLUID CORRECT TO POUR TRANSMISSION IN TRANSMISSION RAISE HOOD LOOK ON TOP TRANSMISSION ON DRIVER SIDE FOR A RED VENT FILL PLUG.REMOVE PLUG USING A LONG LONG FUNNEL POUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IN THE VENT FILL PLUG HOLE.THIS VECHICLE THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO CHECK FLUID USING A LIFT.YOU CAN DO THIS JOB BUT IT WILL VERY DANGEROUS YOU CAN PUT CAR ON JACK STANDS WITH VECHICLE SITTING LEVEL. BUT THE DANGER PART COMES YOU HAVE TO SLIDE UNDER THE CAR WHILE ENGINE RUNNING TO CHECK FLUID.IF YOU DO THIS JOB HAVE FRIEND OR HELPER AROUND DONT WORK UNDER CAR BY YOUR SELF ALWAYS KEEP CELLUAR PHONE ON HAND FOR EMERGENCY.
look under the back of your truck.
there should be a steel line running from each brake cylinder to a
splitter about midway down the axel.
there should also be a metal line running from the splitter to the fluid
reseviour in your engine compartment.
to remove the lines:
find the proper size wrench. loosen and remove the line. replace the
line with a new one. tighten it up.
you will have to add more fluid to the resivour (dot 3 brake fluid)
now you "bleed" the brakes to remove the air from the lines (air in the
lines causes squishy, and uneven brake opperation.)
to bleed the brakes:
get a friend. this is a 2 person job. one of you get in the cab (person
1). the other under the truck by the wheel that the new line was put on
there will be a little valve poking out of the back of the brake just
above or beside the brake line. now:
person 1 = (1), person 2 = (2)
have (1) step on the brakes hard and hold them. (2) open the bleeder
valve until (1) yells "FLOOR!" (this means that the brake petal has gone
all the way to the floor.) as soon as (2) hears "floor," close the
next (1) pumps the brakes 3-4 times to build up pressure. (2) open the
valve again and then close it when (1) hollers.
repeat this procedure until only brake fluid comes from the bleeder
valve. you will see air sputter out as well for a few goes.
once the air is removed from the lines, refill the resiviour with fluid.
put the cap back on. then your good to go.
note: be carefull when opening the valve. the fluid can shoot pretty
far. also make sure that you do it where you don't mind getting plenty
of fluid on the ground. and remember, brake fluid will discolor clothes and any other cloth is comes in contact with.
First make sure you are not in transit mode. Some outboards have a lever which keeps the motor tilted for trailering. You should have a fuse for the tilt motor, check that. If the pump is turning and it sounds like it is whining you are pushing air and either lost your hydraulic fluid or have an air bubble in the system. Check your fluid reservoir.
i can only offer advise if it's a manual tranny... but if it is, i had the same problem with my 04 f150 about 4 months ago... if the clutch pedal seems to have alot of travel before it engages, more than likely, your slave cylinder is leaking and your fluid reservoir has gone dry... the slave cylinder is located on the inside of the bell housing directly on the input shaft and the fluid reservoir is mounted to the firewall under the hood just above the steering column (it's a little thing only as big around as a silver dollar and about 2 in. deep, check the fluid level)... it is about a 20 hr job for someone inexperienced such as myself, with a friend helping and access to a vehicle lift... but it did fix MY problem... now if it's an automatic, i could probably guess you might need a trans fluid flush and change, as well as the filter.. very possibly your filter could be clogged, which could very well cause this problem..
