hello, to remove the brake rotors on a 2001, 1. jack and remove wheels; 2. there are two large bolts that hold the entire brake caliper on; on a 2001 they are 19mm. Get a cheater bar on it because they are well-torqued. 3. step #2 will allow you to remove the caliper assembly and tie it out of the w…ay. 4. you will now find two large Phillips (cross tip) screws hold the rotor on...remove them. 5. get the WD40 and spray the base of the lugs and around the bearing housing. 6. time for a big rubber mallet and you can pry gently while hitting...it will likely be rusted in place...don't loose patience it may take at little time to break it free. hope it helps. Joe FTI. the screws you removed in 4 are used to pop the rotor loose. Instead of prying and using a mallet, you will notice two threaded screw holes in the rotor (not the ones you took the screws out of. If you screw the screws your removed into these holes they will bottom against the flange on the other side of the rotor. Tighten them both, and the force will pop the rotor loose. This works like a charm and you don't have to pound on your bearing housing. (MORE)
Everytime the 4 wheel drive is put on it blows a fuse and the 4 wheel drive and the dome light will not work what is causing this?
I have exactly the same problem on my 88 Chevy 1/2 ton CK. The first place I want to look is the front axle actuator but I don't know where it is.
Answer . \nneeding to know how to do the time belt for a two wheel drive kia sportage.
Does anyone know what type of transmission fluid a 1997 Automatic 4 wheel drive Kia Sportage uses PLEASE HELP?
According to the service manual that is downloadable and printable from, http://www.kiatechinfo.com/index.asp ...the first generation Sportage transmission takes Dexron II E or MIII transmission fluid. This is true for the automatic transmission only. It holds 7 quarts when bone dry. I've a…lso read that Dextron III is acceptable. Please double check the link for your specific application. (MORE)
\nThat particular model does not have a chain,, it has a belt. and it needs to be changed at 60k or it will BREAK!
The water pump is loacted behind the timing belt. To change the water pump you should also do the timing belt.
Answer . there are marks on the timing cover that remains attached to the block and there are arrows on the cams. there is a pointer down by gear on crank and a dimple on gear align these marks
Possible loss of vacuum in front hubs . Most 4WD vehicles use automatically locking hubs. By engaging 4WD, a vacuum is formed in the front wheel hubs causing them to lock up into the front differential/transaxle so they can receive power through the transmission. If the seals are leaking, then th…e vacuum will not form and 4WD will not work. As for the light not working, I suspect that different models use the 4WD indicator light on the console to either identify when the front differential/transaxle is engaged or when the front wheels are actually engaged. Not having the light on when attempting to engage 4WD can either mean problems with the front locking hub mechanisms or the front differential. (MORE)
have to completely pull tranny and 4 wheel diff.then replace clutch and re-install back in. Not for a novice,may want to leave this one to the tranny man.
lock out hubs . \nThe hubs lock the axel to the hub, which drives the wheel.\n. \nWith the transfer case in 2WD, the rear driveshaft drives the rear wheels. Without front hubs, in 2WD, as the front tires roll, they spin the axles and the front driveshaft. \n. \nWith lock out hubs, in 2WD and …the hubs unlocked only the tires spin.\n. \nHowever, in 4WD if you forget to lock the hubs, only the driveshafts and axles spin.\n. \nWhen I lived in MI, in the winter I always kept my hubs "locked", this way I could shift into 4WD whenever I needed to without getting out in the cold to "lock" the hubs.

Answer . \ndisc brakes are self adjusting unless the pads are bad or the caliper is bad.
Answer . the vacuume lines and hubs are damaged. chenge the hubs over to Warn style hubs. Look on the net for info on warn hubs.
Answer . \nDisconnect the battery and wait about 5 min, this will reset the computer and the 4-wheel drive should work.
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 hav…e a problem again with 4x4 (MORE)
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 at your local service station). If not the lines, it will be the seals in the hubs.
If the hold light keeps flashing on a Kia Sportage a sensor may bemalfunctioning in the light. The flashing light could also indicatethat a speed sensor is going bad.
There are several things that can cause your 2003 Geo Trackerfour-wheel-drive not to work. The first thing you should check isthe ground wire on the switch.
Doubtful, as it must connect to the transfer case that is used in lots of FWD vehicles. NEW ANSWER: No it will not.. The center shaft that runs through the center of the transmission is shorter then a 4-wheel drive transmission because there is no transfur case on a 2-wheel drive transmission.
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 the fuel filter for a 2001 Kia Sportgage 4 wheel drive
My 1997 needed an accuator. Purchased one on eBay for 65.00. It is easy to change it screws out and has a two wire plug.
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.
thers a line that goes to the 4 wheel drive in front wheels check to see if it didnt freeze joe 203 648 7090
My Sportage did this about once a year, every year. I thought about getting locking hubs but after I took it to the dealer to repair it a couple times, the problem was always the air hoses that go to the back of the front wheels. They would both crack and break at each end of the hose. The next ti…me it would not engage, I just turned the front wheels so I could see the back side and sure enough, there is a air line running from a nipple coming out of the inside of the fender well to a nipple on the back side of the wheel drum. Each end of the air hose was broke. I could instantly see a very poor design. The factory air line has a built-in rubber gromet in the middle of the line that goes in a metal bracket that keeps the line in place. But there is no slack and is way too tight when the wheels are turned. This poor design puts too much pressure on the hoses where they hook to the nipples every time you turn the steering wheel just by normal driving. The lines always break right where they attatch to the nipple fittings on each end. Both ends break on both front wheels. A very simple fix that works. Take the old air hose assembly to a auto parts store and just match up the right inner size with a piece of new rubber tubeing that comes on rolls. Only cut a piece that is about 6 inches longer and don't hook the hose to the metal securing bracket. Just put a loose fitting zip tie in it's place and leave some slack. This gives the hoses plenty of room to move as the wheel turns back and fourth. This only takes a few minutes to fix. You don't have to jack up the car, but just turn the wheels sharp to access the lines. They never break on me now, and my 4 wd always works now. Hope this helps. (MORE)
This is one of the worst four wheel drive systems out there.Chances are the seals on the hubs are bad along with the wheel bearings.The best thing you can do if it is made is to get manual lockouts.
The 4wd is vacuum actuated. Check the vacuum lines and the switch (located on the driver's side of the engine compartment on the 1999). I've also heard the grease that allows the 4wd clutch to engage can gel up as it gets older. Otherwise, you may have to replace the hubs with manual ones.
A likely cause is that the front vacuum line is disconnected. My truck would lose 4x4 in mud or snow because the vacuum line pulled loose. Not a real handy feature for a 4x4.
My Sportage is a 2001 model but I also had trouble initially getting it into 4wd. The trick is to shift it when the clutch is engaged and you are moving. It goes easily from 2wd to 4wd and back again like this, but if you try to shift it while stopped and with the clutch pedal depressed, it won't go….. If the shifter moves, but 4wd still won't engage, the problem is probably with the automatic locking hubs. These are activated by vacuum lines that are prone to breaking. Check that there is no leak at the vacuum solenoid (just forward of the master brake cylinder in the engine compartment), and then check the lines in the wheel wells. Replace any broken or defective lines. If 4wd still doesn't work, the problem may be with the automatic locking hubs themselves. These can be replaced with either replacement automatic hubs or manual hubs. Automatic hubs will restore shift on the fly capability, but the manual hubs are cheaper and more reliable because they don't rely on vacuum lines. You will however have to stop the vehicle and manually set the hubs every time you select 4wd. Good luck. (MORE)
The water pump is located behind the timing belt at the front of the engine. To gain access, first drain the rad, remove the fan shroud, fan, rad hoses, accessory belts, timing belt cover (two pieces) and finally the timing belt. Not a really difficult job but time consuming. Plan on 3 to 5 hours, e…ven with the right tools. Tip: Change the pump whenever you change the timing belt (every 95K). The $80 for the pump will eventually save you the $500 in labour that a pump change will cost. (MORE)
Inside the front wheel well on either side you will notice a metal tube protruding just behind/ below the strut. That is the chasis side of the 4x4 vaccum line. The other side is locted on the inside of the axle/hub. You will need to feel around for it. You can pick up a piece of vaccum hose from yo…ur local auto parts store to replace the cracked/missing piece. Be sure to secure the line so that it does not rub against the tire as you drive or else it will rub a hole in the new line. Try it out. (MORE)
If you are a good welder, and know how to use a torch you could put a 305 Chevy v8 with Tranny. It just how much time,money, and fit and finish you want to spend on it.
It may be a 3.9L, 4.7L or 5.9L V8. My 2002 Dakota Quad Cab 4x4 is a 5.9L. I suggest running the VIN number (it's free) and usually it will tell you the size of the engine...
The engine turns the transmission which then turns the transfer case which then provides power to all 4 wheels
SelecTrac Step one: move the selector into desired 4WD mode, either Part Time or Full Time at any vehicle speed Step two: keep driving for 4Lo: Step one: slow the truck down to about 2-3mph Step two: move the tranmission (P, R, N, 2, 1) into neutral Step three: move the transfer case (2…wd, 4PT, 4FT, N, 4LO) to neutral, then press down and move into 4LO Step four: place transmission into "1" QuadraTrac I,II Step one: enjoy, you are already in 4WD Don't have the shifter? You can't do it! (MORE)
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 rear wheel drive despite what the light says.
no you do not just let off the gas a little and change away =]
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 warn manual locking hubs and the problem is fixed
this was my same question about a week ago and i checked the vac hoses and they wernt connected... also check the switch and wiring and then there is a encodor switch on the transfer case and if still all fails its time for a new transfercase
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. When you engage 4x4 in the truck, a switch on the transfer case allows power to the actuator. The newer actuators are all elect…ric, 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. (MORE)
21 seconds is my band.please support.we cant have a band if we dont ngot no fans! :]
You can either jack up the front and rear of the truck or go to a oil changing place or muffler shop and have them run it to see if all the 3 wheels run on4X4.
Need More Info, Year, Make, Model, What It Does, Symptoms. It Could Be An Electrical Solenoid, Switch, Sticking Parts, Dirty Parts.
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…. (MORE)
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 transfer 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 too 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 !! (MORE)
In most cases, no. The only way I can think of that would make the 4 wheel drive stop working is if the wheel bearing completely froze up the wheel and ended up breaking a u-joint or CV joint.
mine did the same thing it was the right axle spun in the hub. check the axle and hub.
only from a stopped position. Do not try and do it on the fly. Not designed to do that.
you should have a chart on the bottom side of the hood. When you open the hood you should see it. That is unless the hood has been replace from an accident.
