Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your concern today. Please rate my assistance after we have concluded chatting.
There is a vacuum actuator on the front axle tube. When you are shifting in and out of 4x4 does that actuator move? Also you may need to verify that vacuum is actually at the actuator when being commanded on. You could have a bad vacuum line or reseviour, near the battery tray.
Also make sure there is power to the 4x4 solenoids, near the battery. They command the front actuator to 4x4 or 4x2.
Do some of these checks and let me know. Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
