Question about 1990 Daihatsu Rocky

1 Answer

My 1988 Rocky 4WD doesn't engage either with the dash button or the manual lever. The relay clicks, but $WD doesn't engage. I understand that it needs a vacuum to operate it. How do I check if the vacuum is present? What can I do to fix it?

    Sounds like your experiencing a 4wd problem? I'm putting together a solution for you now.

    The 4wd Vac Actuator is about $400 bucks!!!



    For your make and model, these are known to be simply very dirty and need to be serviced in order to save you from spending the money on a brand new one. If you can find a used vac actuator, you will be able to save about 300 bucks!!! Used ones are found everywhere ranging from truck and car junk yards, used car parts sales, and remanufactured.



    The VAC selonoid is located on the front axle, and I would not attempt to fix this on your own. Most body shops will only charge you $50 to check it for you via computer checkup/manual checkup.

1988 Toyota land cruiser won't go into 4wd


so this is part time 4WD and as such only works
on ICE or dirt.
not pavement free of ICE
(its not AWD) its part time.
post location, (so i can read your weather report, dig?)
or post out door temps and conditions above. failure., (im blind)

if you drive in 4wd (PT) on pavement (no ice) it will wind up.
if you keep doing that, you may destroy the transfer case is the
drive line winds up.

see diffs here

http://www.lcool.org/technical/diffs/diffs.html


your car has no center differential.
do not drive car in 4wd until you understand how top use part time
4wd, or $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
or get hurt. or others./?

How do I turn 4wd on?


    • 1 Start your Dodge truck's engine.
    • 2 Turn the electronic transfer case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock" and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
    • 3 Shift the transmission into "Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or "4H" to "4L."
    Tips & Warnings
    • Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
    • Many Dodge trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD. Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

Slips out of gear when in 4WD


Check the oil level in the shift on the fly (sotf) part of the axle thats the left of the front one - it holds about 1 pint of gear oil and gets missed at service time .

4 wd will not engage ,indicator lights on dash do not light


If its not engaging into 4 WD the vaccum actulator is more than likely stuck. The actulator is located on the front of the axle next to the the front gear hub it will have a plastic cover over it. Unbolt the two 10mm bolts that hold the cover on and spray down with WD-40, also pull back the rubber cover thats on the actulator staff and spray it. You might have to hit the staff a few times to get it to move just make sure its in 4WD. I had the same problem, that part is exposed to alot of water, snow, salt and so on. Or you could just replace it but its cheaper to spray it down with WD-40

Unless your rocky was custom or rebuild, the four wheel drive on the 90-92 rocky is not auto engage. it is manual. you have to use the four wheel gear shifter located left of the main gear shifter.

The 4 wheel drive doesn't work in my 89 Ford Bronco


The sound is not coming from the glove compartment, it is coming from the panel behind the drivers seat, that's where the relays and computer are located.
The relays click and apply power to a transfer case motor.
The motor attempts to turn a shaft that engages the front drive shaft.
When the computer thinks the shaft has NOT turned it tries again.
It will try three times then quit, figuring the shaft has not turned.

Get someone to crawl under the vehicle and engage the 4WD (just turn on the ignition- do not start the engine) See if they can hear the motor attempt to turn the shaft, it will make a clicking sound.
If not the connections or the motor may be bad.

I have found the most probable cause is the relays on the control board.
If you are technically adept --
you can remove the small side panel from behind the drivers seat and remove the control board. (remove the power plugs first)
Clean the relay contacts and bend them a little to give them more 'wipe' to keep them clean longer.
Put it back in and turn on the ignition.
Then push the RESET button on the side of the board.
Try the in / out 4WD a couple of times. If it doesn't work turn off the ignition, turn it back on and push the reset button again.
