Front wheel drive of 4x4 will not engaging on my 1988 S10 pickup how can I fix it ? the rear wheels on 4x4 work great but when I put it in 4 wheel drive light comes on but it just well not work I kno


Dam I hate when guys don't tell you how to check stuff eh, LOL. On the front diff there is a section with a vacuum chamber on it. That is what uses engine vacuum to engage the front axel for 4 wheel drive. Although some are electric. You will know when you look at it. Its on the right side I believe between the differential and the wheel. Remove the hose and put your wet finger over the end of the hose with the engine running, You should feel nothing yet. Now go engage the 4 wheel drive, now you should feel a suction on the end of that hose. If You do not, Look for the break in the hose. if you do, remove the vacuum assemble from the axel, hook up the vacuum hose and check the controller by switching from 4x4 to 4x2 back and forth, you should see the fork slide back and forth. If it does, it is working, if it does not, replace the actuator ( front axle lock actuator) it's called. This is the most common cause of your problem OK.

What is auto 4 wheel drive?


Auto 4 wd is when the Silverado's PCM takes readings from the front and rear driver shaft and when there is any detection that the speeds are different. The Auto 4WD will activate the transfer case to lock it self to 4wd until the front and rear drive shaft are running at the same given speed of rotation.

Thank you for using fixya

Front propulsion not engaging


This is probably a belt driven machine...remove the cover. (could have Torx screws). and see if the belt is on the lower engine pulley and is on the pulley to the drive transmission...If OK, then check the action of the spring that helps engage the transmission.

Craftsman 6.0 lawnmower frontwheel drive won't engage .


Make sure the belt has not slipped off of the pulley on the engine output shaft just above the cutting blade. It is common with those type of drives for debris to make the belt hop off.

When i engage four wheel drive from the lever in the car i only get traction on the rear wheels. Is there a diff lock i need to engage


It depends, look at the hubs on your front wheels? Is there a knob in the center of the wheels? If so, then turn this knob to the right and you will have engaged the 4 wheel drive? If you do this, however, make sure you engage the 4 wheel drive inside the truck (if your truck has a 4 wheel drive gear shifter).
Oh other Rangers you have a knob on the inside of the cab it should be somewhere on the dash. You can turn it to the right and this will engage the 4 wheel drive.
Finally, when you engage the 4WD make sure the engine is cut off so it doesn't mess up your transfer case.

I have a 7hp briggs and straton craftsman self propelled push mower. It's a few years old but runs great, the only thing wrong is the self propelled part won't engage. I took it apart down to the axle but...


Could be a stretched out/broken belt, a worn out transmission or the drive teeth on the inside of the wheels could be worn out. I would start by looking at that. Remove the drive wheels and check for damaged or missing teeth.

Auto transmission fault on toyota landcruiser amazon


Howdy, My name is Mark, I am a mechanic (Auto trans and Diff specialist 23 years) this symptom is common with a broken driveline component, with full time 4WD and centre diff all the drive goes to the wheel with least resistance, (or to broken component) therefore when you engage difflock (Center) the drive then goes 2 ways front and rear so vehicle will drive, could be as simple as stripped spline in front wheel hub, broken CV joint etc. 1 major weakness these vehicles have is if driven with center diff lock engaged on high traction surfaces they do break the front diff, this will give the same symptom but you would of been aware of it when it happened.
To check where the drive is going chock all 4 wheels, park brake on, bonnet up, start engine let it idle down (after cold start), engage reverse (high range open center) from the front of vehicle and off to one side you can see the front axles, if one of them is turning that is where your drive is going, have someone to help you and under no circumstances place your self under or in driving path of vehicle.
Hope this helps

The front wheels on my lawn mower have locked


on yours you must replace the entire tranny unit - to make it roll you can remove the front wheels and remove the small gear on both sides - doing this of course will turn it into a push mower not self propel
