Answer . buy a manual lock out hub kit from an online source - not Kia made because they cost so much but you can find one online througha google search. The problem with …1996-2000 Kia's is that the vaccuum seal for the 4x4 lasts for only a minute - go to a lock out system and you will never have a problem again with 4x4
Although you have a manual shift on the transfer case the hubs lock in on vacuum. Chances are you have bad vacuum lines going to the hubs (about $150+ at a Kia dealer or $40 a…t your local service station). If not the lines, it will be the seals in the hubs.
When I asked how to remove a fuel filter for a 2001 Kia Sportgage I forgot to say it is a 2001 Kia Sportgage 4 wheel drive vehicle. Could you help me to know how to remove t…he fuel filter for a 2001 Kia Sportgage 4 wheel drive
If you don't have a small shifter next to the main shifter, then you don't have 4WD. If you do then just pull it!
You'll have to be more specific about your 4 wheel drive: What doesn't work? Will it start up? Does it drive properly? Explain yourself.
i dont know how
manual or automatic ?
The engine turns the transmission which then turns the transfer case which then provides power to all 4 wheels
There is a vacuum pipe system used to lock the front hubs. The t pieces in this system are platic, and break after a few years. This stops the hub from locking - hence only re…ar wheel drive despite what the light says.
there is a few reasons why, they are a vacuum system. most times the hoses crack and leak. did you check to see if you have vacuum at the wheels? most cases people buy the war…n manual locking hubs and the problem is fixed
It is a solenoid that engages the front axle. The driver side axle is always engaged, the actuator engages the passenger side axle through a fork locking in the front axle. Wh…en you engage 4x4 in the truck, a switch on the transfer case allows power to the actuator. The newer actuators are all electric, the older models are gas over electric, and could act slowly. if at all. GM does make a conversion kit to mount the newer style actuator on older trucks. Need more help contact me through my board and I will try to help.
are you driving on a smooth road ? some of the 4 x4 will shudder on even pavement. Remember 4 x4 driving assumes your on rough or uneven surfaces. But just to be safe have it …checked at a transmission service center.It is slightly possible a driveshaft joint has dried out causing this but is is rare.

transfer case behind main transmission engages either manually through a lever selected by driver or electrically by switch pressed by driver to a gear set that will transfe…r torque to both the front and rear drive shafts equally splitting power between the two. front axle engagement can be either manually by locking in hub selector nobs, automatic centrifugal locking hubs, or any other manufacture specific front axle engagement method.

a RAV 4 that has the awd only cruses in fwd but if there is little traction (wheel spin, slip) then the rear wheels will receive torque from the transmission and thus making… it awd, this system gives you awd when you need it but fwd when you need mpg

Normal reason for this common problem is rubber vacuum pipe failure. Pipe is located behind frot wheels. Do not buy Kia replacement pipes as their replacement pipes are both t…oo short and too expensive. They cost approx. Â£32 a pair and will fail again quite soon. Instead replace with 25" of heavy duty rubber vacuum pipe on both sides. It is an easy DIY job and took me under half an hour to do. Just set steering to full right hand lock to fit left hand side, then full left lock to do right hand side. Use a loose fitted cable tie to retain hose once fitted and, hey presto........ 4WD now works a treat. Hope this helps someone as Maidstone Kia quoted me Â£175.01 to do this. I did it myself for under Â£10 !!

only from a stopped position. Do not try and do it on the fly. Not designed to do that.

from park shift the lever to 4 x2 or 4x4.
