I have a 98 s10 3 switch 4wd it locks in and runs fine but when i put it 2wd the transfer case disengages but recently the front hubs stay locked. When you jack up the front end and you turn either tire the drive shaft going to transfer case spins. to my knowledge its not suppose to do that. Someone told me about the acuator valve can i try to unplug the vacuum line on it will that do anything? i am new to 4wd please help!
i pulled the battery and everything out the actuator is fine but the shift cable has about two inches of the rubber missing and it is rusted it wont move more than 1/4 to 1/2" could this be my problem why it wont dissengage and where i do i get another cable.
the cable that goes into your actuator on your front axle could be rusted in so it always stays engaged whether theres vacuum to the one under the battery pushing on it or not. you could probably order up another cable at napa or any parts store
Is it possible to connect the posilok cable directly to the differential to lock and unlock it or should i go with a new cable to the actuator. How do i go about unlocking the front differential if the cable is rusted?
