How can you change fx 2004 from 2wd to awd?
In Infiniti FX
You really cannot without rebuilding the car, drive train, etc. Cheaper to sell and buy the AWD FX.

How do you repair intermittent shifting between 2WD and AWD-4WD of a 1999 GMC Suburban 1500 SLT during wet weather?
4x4 engage . \nIf you have the electrical (thermal) front axle engagement setup, it losses it's abilty to engage the front axle over time, and really has problems in cold weather. Replace it with a mechanical setup from "4x4 Posi-Lok". Their stuff is pretty much bullet-proof.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nI had to beat my rotors off with a hammer because they were frozen onto the hub\n. \nyou have to remove the wheel and the caliper first. than with a little bit of help from a hammer it should come off. DO NOT DROP IT!!! Good luck!
Answer . \ni called the ford dealership they recominded that u not do it yoursealf unless you had a full shop worth of equipment i have a 93 ford ranger 2.3L 5speed and i had it done by a local mechanic for 300 i bout the parts myself it was worth it..
Answer . I am not familiar with this model, but best guess is to remove the wheel and caliper and go from there. There should be tutorials all over the internet if you Google something like "replace rotors diy"
Easy but messy Just changed this in my 94 AWD. The thermostat housing is just above the oil filter, about a third of the way back from front bumper. The housing, attached to a long hose running to the radiator, has two 12 mm nuts. It's a realtively easy, though messy job. Drain radiator into bucket…. Petcock is just under the radiator, and free from cowling that covers most of front underside. It unscrews all the way(lefty loosey). Make sure coolant is not to hot when you do this. Screw petcock back in. Move bucket under thermostat housing. Unscrew 12 mm nuts, pull housing(still attached to hose) away from engine, releasing more coolant. Thermostat may be stuck in engine or housing...I used water pump pliers to pluck it out. Again, more coolant flows. Peel off rubber gasket/o-ring from old thermostat, and work onto new thermostat. Place new thermostat into housing in same orientation as old one removed. Push housing back in place (a little tricky, to keep thermostat seated). snug the 12 mm bolts back on. Be careful refilling the radiator from overflow container. 50-50 water and antifreeze, until it seems full. Start engine with heater on full, keep topping coolant, after it warms up. Put radiator reservoir cap back on. Test drive, check for leaks and coolant level again. (MORE)
Answer . Disconnect transfer case.. Y-THINK-Y. Answer . Disconnect transfer case. But I do not suggest doing so!!! Besides, it will not save you any gas!. Y-THINK-Y. Answer: Yes it is possible. The transfer case you most likely have is the New Process 249J. Referred to as the "QuadraDr…ive". What you want is the New Process 242J, referred to as the "Selectrac". This will give you 2WD, 4WD Part time, 4WD Full time, Neutral, 4WD Low.. I just did this swap in my 95 JGC for about $900 total with a reman transfer case from Ebay (George Kreppien) Included in this price is a new speed sensor, 4WD switch, Engine oil change and Transmission Oil change.. The actual T/C swap took about 6 hours doing it myself. You will also need to change the 4WD lever indicator bezel as well as some minor wiring change behind the radio in the vehicle information center (VIC).. I think this is a fantastic thing, as it made it quieter in the cab, but it is CONSIDERABLY different when operating on dry pavement. George has provided excellent information and a 1 yr / 15K mi. warranty on the T/C I purchased.. You will need to drop both driveshafts, remove the skid plate, and lower the rear transmission mount. THere are 6 bolts that hold the T/C to the transmission. You can do this with it about 18" higher off the floor than normal. I used (4) HD jack stands. SAFETY SHOULD ALWAYS COME FIRST!!!. The T/C weighs about 95 to 100 Lb. and can be handled relatively easily.. Good Luck! (MORE)
How do you determine if a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer has 2WD or AWD there are no markings on the vehicle?
Answer . \nLooking at the front suspension, look for axle stubs with rubber boots extending from the front differential to the front hub assembly (just inside the front tires)\nThe presence of both the axle stubs and the front differential signify AWD/4WD
Put it in nutral first . Answer . your acuator is pooched change it but check the fuse first. drive safe
The heater core is difficult to change on the Ford trucks. They have it buried in the plenum box and you have to remove the steering wheel, steering column, dash, evacuate the refrigerant system, drain the radiator, and remove the plenum box to get to the core. Replacing the core is easy, getting to… it is a day's work. The Expedition is particularly difficult to get to. It is almost above the transmission tunnel and well buried behind the dash. The Expedition uses the same plenum box as the F150, so any information on that system applies to the Expedition/Navigator. You need to be sure that the heater core is really the problem before tackling this job. If you have a pool of coolant on the floor, you'll have to go after the core. If the problem is lack of heat, there are some things you need to eliminate before tearing into the truck. You need to make sure that coolant is flowing through the core. Check the temperature of the heater hoses going into the firewall when the engine is cool and see if they warm up together as the engine warms up. If both hoses get hot at about the same rate, this is a good indication that coolant is flowing through the core. You can also remove the hoses and flush the core with a water hose splice from Home Depot and a water hose. Water should flow unobstructed through the core. If it appears that coolant is flowing and you don't have obvious leaks, the next step is to check the blend door. This door controls the air flow through the heater core and failure is common on Ford trucks. When the door breaks, it can block the flow of air through the core and kill heat and will also have an impact on AC. If the system seems to work intermittently, it's a good indication that the door is broken and rattling around randomly blocking or opening the passage to the core. For diagnostic information on how to check the operation of the blend door and a cheap easy fix, check the heatertreater listing on Ebay or the web site at heatertreater.net. The dealer fix for the blend door is basically the same procedure for replacing the heater core, so it will be expensive. The HeaterTreater alternative will solve the problem at a fraction of the cost and work and is well within the capability of the average shade tree mechanic. (MORE)

Wow, you have a job on your hands. I have had the very same trans. rebuilt and put in. I done the job with some help,( took the trans out and put back in), not rebuilding, and you need to brace the engine, from falling, and unbolt the trans from the engine and drop it from the bottom. There's alot t…o explain, but that's just a bit. you have alot of unplugging of wires and connectors, and bolts. some are difficult to get to, and some are not seen, but they are there. Not a certified mechanic, Not a certified mechanic, so can't remember everything, but that a start. just a hint or a thought. Beings you have the ranny out, you might as well have some of the engine checked as well. the parts on the engine would be easier to get to and it would all be check out before you put it back together so you could rest asure that things are all right. just a thought. I wished I would have done this to mine. Specifically speaking of changing the timing chain, and also checking all the things that are not easy to get to after engine has been put back in place with trans. I wish I had. (MORE)

Go to this web page and read this article:. http://www.rsgear.com/articles/2004_10.pdf. this should answer your question. Your van has the New Venture 136 transfer case. I have the same problem. This info is important. for all Astro/Safari AWD owners.
If you've never done this work before, your best bet is to get a manual and study the steps and pictures. Manuals aren't free and not especially cheap either but the small cost can save you a lot of headache and assist you with other work and maintenance on the vehicle as well.
You can take the front drive shaft out and it will run on the rear wheels making it 2 wheel drive.but i have done this and the truck does not get any better gas mileage and it handles like crap in the winter without the all while drive running. I had recently put the front shaft back in and the truc…k runs much better.also for the future you should have the same tires front and back with the all wheel drive its less friction on the axel's and will last much longer.

AWD stands for All Wheel Drive which is a system in many vehicles in which there is both front and rear wheel drive. Unlike with 4x4, all wheel drive can not be selceted but instead is constant in all weather conditions.
No if wanting to use tow dolly or pull behind (all wheels on ground). Can be trailered. :)
You need to take the air cleaner off. Then disconnect the vacuum hose going to your brake booster at the check valve point. There is a valve (EGRC-BRT) next to the EGR remome the the clamp on the braket that is holding the brake booster hose and swing it out of your way. Next you need to remove the …vacuum hose from the EGRC-BRT valve and remove the valve nad the bracket that hold the vave. Now you can get to the EGR pipe which attaches to the EGR. Remove the pipe then remove the the bolts that hold the EGR valve. (MORE)

2wd = Two Wheel Drive. This means that only two of the cars weels are connected to the engine and makes the car move. It can be either the back or the front wheels. Usually family cars are front wheel driven, this is over all safer and makes the car less likely to spin around. Sports cars are p…referred back wheel driven because it improves handling (when driven by an experienced driver) 4wd = four wheel drive awd = all wheel drive These two are the same thing. It is a system where all four wheels of the car are connected to the engine and is very good on vehicles used where you need more traction than usual. there are many different ways to get power to the ground in a car... 2wd is usually rear wheel drive in pickup trucks, and usually front wheels drive in a car 4wd in most vehicles is selectable, by a lever, shifter, or button and is usually rear wheel drive until you select 4wd with the selecter which engages the front wheels. the transfer case divides the power evenly between the front and rear driveshafts. dependant on the transfer case it is usually not supposed to run on the highway in 4wd unless conditions are bad (snow, ice, hard rain) (ex. np 231 or the popular atlas) but some transfer cases are ok to run at all time in any condition you just have to know what your specs are. (np 242) same as jeep grand Cherokee or the army humvee. Awd is ALL time 4wd that is not selectable and is ok to run on the highway under any condition because the transfer case has a differential in it like your axle does. this one without any traction control system gives the most power to the wheel with the least traction. there are many different ways to get power to the ground in a car... 2wd is usually rear wheel drive in pickup trucks, and usually front wheels drive in a car 4wd in most vehicles is selectable, by a lever, shifter, or button and is usually rear wheel drive until you select 4wd with the selecter which engages the front wheels. the transfer case divides the power evenly between the front and rear driveshafts. dependant on the transfer case it is usually not supposed to run on the highway in 4wd unless conditions are bad (snow, ice, hard rain) (ex. np 231 or the popular atlas) but some transfer cases are ok to run at all time in any condition you just have to know what your specs are.

After removing the tire and brake caliper, you need to take off the dust cap, remove the pin holding the nut and nut lock on, the nut lock and the nut. Then pull the rotor out and push it back in so you are able to get to and remove the outer bearing. Then just pull out the rotor. You will need to t…ap out the inner bearing and seal from the rotor and repack them or replace them with new ones. Once you have the rotor out, you will need new bearings and a seal for the new rotors. You will need to pack the bearings with high temp. grease and put them back in the reverse order you took them out. Once you have the inside bearing and seal in the rotor, put the rotor back on and then put in the outer bearing. Screw the nut back on by hand DO NOT USE ANY WRENCH OR TOOLS TO DO THIS! While screwing the nut back rotate the roter counter clock wise to remove any excess grease from the bearings. Once the nut is hand tight against the rotor, replace the nut lock, pin and dust cap. Now all you have to do is put the break caliper and tire back on and off you go. (MORE)

Yes, however all four wheels must be changed at the same time, with the same tread pattern, or damage to the car's differentials can result. Additionally, a spare wheel/tire should be rotated with the others to ensure even wear in the event of tire replacement - one new tire will have a different ov…erall height than three old ones and this will also affect the differentials.

there are two screws that hold the rotor to the hub. be careful not to damage the screws.

I have a 02 with 4.6l if it is the same it is pretty easy to do,go to autozone.com and look up repair info then go to repair guides you have to set up a free membership and it will let you view the repair guides for free,they are very helpfull
You start from the back psngr then the back drv side....then psngr front and last drv side front.....From the longest line to the shortest away from the master
Yes you can, all you have to do is break your phone, the rebuild it without factory settings/
there is an ultrasaber but that has no sound anyway no you can its inpossible
That would require a massive modification of the vehicle. It would be much cheaper to just sell this car and buy a AWD.
you will need A D SERIES tranny and basically all its rear driveline parts and weld the pumpkin bracket on to your sol an then you will have awd
you take away the other 3 wheel functions and boom it is a first wheel drive
Look under the vehicle. If there is a drive shaft going from the front half of the vehicle to the back half of the vehicle then it is AWD. If no drive shaft then it is FWD. If you're still not sure after looking at it take it to a shop, they will tell you for free.
Just use the first two parts of the decimal after the decimal point. e .
The flashers are located on the top of the steering wheel like they would be in a 2005 Chevy trail blazer.
The brake rotors only need to be changed if they are worn beyond allowable specifications and should be changed in pairs. They do not need to be changed with the pads unless they are damaged as above or warped.
you can't... it's "real-time all wheel drive" it has a dual pump system in the rear differential... clever stuff. inside the differential are 2 pumps, one connected to the driveshaft from the front diff & one on the rear half shafts... it is full of fluid (dual pump fluid only available from h…onda (only use this oil!!) when the drive shaft is turning quicker than the rear half shafts, the difference in pressure of the 2 pumps engages a "clutch pack" in the rear diff that locks the drive shaft to the diff "4WD" but when they are both turning at the same speed, the clutch is released and the car is being driven from just the front wheels thus saving petrol & wear on the clutch... So.. when driving normally on a straight dry road where the front & back wheels are turning at the same speed, only the front wheels are being driven... but when the front wheels turn faster that the back (loss of traction) the clutch engages and locks into 4WD until traction is restored. the fluid needs changing every 40k miles or when you hear a groaning sound from the back when sharp turning or off-road... easy job as i just did mine yesterday in 20 minutes (1 liter of dual pump fluid is all it needs) in England it's called DPS-F Another View: Actually YES , you can change it to 2WD by simply unhooking the drive shaft that connects the rear differential to the transmission. Unbolting the universal joints at both the differential and the transmission ends and removing the shaft altogether will effectively render the vehicle 2WD only. CAUTION: Since you won't actually be removing the differential and its internal gearing, you will still have to make sure you keep the differential fluid up to level. (MORE)

This depends a bit on the condition of the engine. I would not change motor oil less than every 3000 miles or 5000 km. Oil grade is important, for a worn engine in a hot climate, use SAE 40 or 20-40, in a colder climate use a thinner oil such as SAE 10-30 all year round. Do not use very cheap motor …oils, as they contain fewer additives. For worn engines, consider buying an engine oil additive that makes for greater viscosity. Change the oil filter every time you change the oil. DonÂ´t believe those who claim engine oil will last 6000 miles or more. The processes of heat combustion create sulfuric acid, soot and other dangerous contaminants that gradually make the oil unfit for lubrication. However, do not change the oil more often than every 3000 miles since too frequent oil changes have also been shown to create excessive engine wear in some cases. Changing the engine oil is the most important maintenance task most drivers are faced with. DonÂ´t neglect it as this may cause your entire engine to fail, the pistons will seize in the cylinders and then you are up against major costs for parts and work, in some cases costs that equal the price of the vehicle.
