It sounds like you need a new cassette on the rear wheel. Take the rear wheel to a bicycle shop as they will have the tools to remove the old one and install the proper new one.

I have a 1995 Chevy lumina 3.4 v6 automatic transmission my problem is the trans. is not going in to gear the shift tower will move from park to drive and I can fill it engage but the car will not go...


if mean you can feel the gear shift lever engage into position then you should check to see if the cable is moving the neutral switch on the transmission. if not then you may have a broken or out of adjusted shift cable. if the gear shift cable is moving the switch then the problem is in the transmission and will have to be looked into.

How to fix 1998 2 Wheel Drive Chevy Blazer automatic transmission shifter that will not engage any of the gears


That sounds like the linkage (at the transmission end) has broken or loosened. Crawl underneath (wheels chocked) and watch closely while someone else shifts back & forth - you'll see the linkage move at the transmission end, and you should see how to correct the problem.

My 2006 gmc 1500 4x4 front wheels wont engage


Is it manual or electric shifted into gear in which case is there a fuse / relay for the operation. Has it had hard use previously and could have a broken driveshaft / hub so that although you think its not engaged it is but busted?

Hello, I bought a 1980 land cruiser, but it does not have the picture on how to activate the 4x4 stick, can you help me pls


First thing to do is engage your front hubs. Gold colored locking mechanism in the center of the hub with arrows reading "free" and "engage" rotate the mechanism towards the engage until it stops. do this on both front hubs. Then start and let engine idle, depress the clutch and shift the short (right) shift lever to the "High" position, then shift transmission lever into 1st gear and then you will be in 4 wheel drive.

1998 Jeep Wrangler - Looking for proper way to put into 4 wheel drive and take back out to 2 wheel drive. Unsure if vehicle is suppose to be reversed after engaging or unengaging.


Best way to attain engagement without any grinding etc. is to pull 4x4 lever into gear while rolling at low speed. You can also in an emergency, turn the engine off and engage, then re-start (when you have been in 2wd and have gotten stuck in mud and can't roll) When dis-engaging, generally it will shift out with no problem while moving, but if it does not, then you can back up about twenty feet and usually that will work. (still beats getting out and doing it manually at the hubs!!)

4 wheel drive not engaging


The neutral/foot on brake or park is only if you are shifting into 4L. If you are shifting into 4H, applying light throttle up to 55 mph shift on the fly is fine ( per owners manual ).

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on.
Check the vent line ( tube that is routed into the engine compartment with nothing attached to it ), for blockages.
If the vent line is clear, and with the vac lines off the IWE should be engaged ( both front wheels locked ).
If they lock, the problem is with the IWE solenoid not shutting off vacuum to the IWEs. There is a TSB on the 2004-2006 IWE solenoids, a newer revision has been made, and used from 2007 and newer MYs.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE system
0fa4f4b.jpg
If the front drive shaft turns, I have seen some lightly hit the back of the transfer case, to free up the shift motor, with mixed results.
If you had a vacuum leak, the front wheels would be locked in, or poping in and out of locked in, causing a grinding noise ( IWE gears not engaging fully, grinding the teeth off ).

If you find a problem with the vacuum lines or the IWE solenoids, you can pull the vacuum lines and plug them, this would leave the front wheels locked in all the time. Fine for short use, don't try racing like this ( pushing a dead axle is a lot of HP requirements )

Transfer case wont engage


shift into 4wd and move truck a couple of feet.
if light is still off, park truck block the wheels set the park brake jack right front wheel and try to hand spin the wheel if wheel doesn't turn 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch wiring fuse and bulb
if wheel turns freely the front axle or transfer case is not engaged
attempt to hand spin the front driveshft if the driveshaft will spin the transfer case is not engaged check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage or transfer case internals
if the driveshaft will not spin the transfer case is engaged properly
with trnsmission in neutral or park start engine measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor . one line should have approx 20" vacuum. other line should have none
if no vacuum measured look for vac leak or bad vac switch
if both lines have vac look for a bad vac swithc or ruptured cad actuator diaphragm
if one line has 20" +- VAC
move transfer case lever to 2wd measure vac again lines should have swapped vac signals
if no vac switch bad or 4wd shift likage needs adjusting
if yes vac motor bad or stuck or shift fork stuck
remove vac shift motor from the axle attach vac lines to shift motor engage disengage 4wd
does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2 inch
no shift motor bad
yes check axle shift fork and vac motor for binging

4x4 won't engage


I have to stop, engage 4H or 4L, and shift into nuetral and then the front gear box will then engage and you can hear it from nuetral and the engine at idle, it will slip into gear, if not, in gear go slow with 4x4 light "on" and while rolling slip into nuetral and then back into D, Some transfer cases will not engage in Overdrive, the D with a circle around it so shift into 3rd gear the one to the right of the D with a circle around it. 4 H has a speed limit, and do not shift into 4L while on pavement or you can do some damage.
