Customer Question

Hi Drew,
We've got a 2008 Mazda B2600, double cab, 4wd pick up. Bought it in March of 2015. I has 110,000 kilometers on it. We've got a farm in the mountains and we use the 4wd regularly. Its been running fine until recently. Now it feels like it is running higher rpms in lower gears and has less range in the gear.

Hi v.

Not sure what you know about how the 4WD system works but it sounds like to me you are running in

4WD low instead of 4WD high .

Low is low ratio and top gear will feel like you are in 1nd or 2rd .

If you are in normal 2WD and feels like the ratio is low then check that the selector is working correctly

my be stuck in low ratio .

Then if needed please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
