yes i do need help.but i cant stay to answer ?s xmass shopping.but please do help
I hear you on the christmas shopping, I have been doing plenty The way your vehicle works is that when you put it in 4x4 it sends electrical signal to a solenoid that has vaccum(suction) lines connected to it.One line has suction which is created any time the engine is running and the other should not have suction until you put it in 4x4 mode. when the vehicle is placed in 4x4 mode a valve inside the solenoid moves which allows vaccum(suction) on both lines.This other line is connected to the front hubs and it sucks a gear in place to cause it to lock the hubs into 4x4.What I need you to do is to try to locate this solenoid, it should be mounted under the hood on the left side(PASSENGER SIDE) of the engine. You will see a small black canister with a small black rubber hose going in and coming out of it. Follow this hose when it comes out of this canister it goes directly into the solenoid.The solenoid will also have two wires running to it. Let me know when you find this solenoid. This could be a cheap simple fix. I will step you through some simple diagnostics to see if this is something you can fix yourself and save you some money. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
i see the vacuum lines and solenoid on driverside
