How do you engage 4x4 on 2003 Honda Pilot?

To engage the 4x4 manually (VTM-4), you would need to be in 1st, 2nd, or reverse gear. In those gears and while stopped, you can then press the VTM-4 button, and will engage 4x4. It will only be engaged when around 18mph or lower. Above that, and it will disengage. It will re-engage when it dips down to that speed again. To turn it off, you can just press the button, or shift to a higher gear Keep in mind that even with the button off, VTM-4 will engage occasionally when there's slippage.

Why is there a delay to start Nissan 200sx after key is in ignitation?

The solenoid that activates the stater motor is of a type that engages the starter gear first (by means of a activation rod), then applies the current to the starter motor. This sequence causes the slight delay. Other starters simply apply the current directly to the starter (via the solenoid) which instantly starts the motor spinning, this spinning (through a spiral cut into the shaft) throws the starter gear along the shaft to engage with the teeth on the flywheel. This type has no delay as the motor doesn't wait for the solenoid to manually engage the stare gear; it is the spinning that engages the gear. Forgive me if I'm not using the correct names. I'm not a mechanic, but I have dismantled a 200sx to fix it (which I did) and discovered this arrangement inside the solenoid; which is different to what I am used to.

There's a yellow switch in the upper right hand portion of the dash. It's the PTO drive. Engage your clutch, pull up on the switch and move it forward, and that should start the blades spinning. If it fails to engage, it could be a bad switch or a bad battery.

Why doesnt starter engage on 1996 Saturn?

What do you mean when you say it doesn't engage? Is the starter spinning but just doesn't catch to spin the engine? IF that's the case it could be as simple as a loose starter or as bad as a damaged flex plate/flywheel. But it would most likely be the starter.

Starter will not engage?

if the starter is spinning but not engaging then the bendix (starter teeth) is not moving out to grab the flywheel teeth or the flywheel has some broken teeth. The starter needs to be removed to see what the issue is.

Your 88 Jeep Comanche wont start it has spark and the timing seems to be correct and the fuel pressure is good too?

Why use a car clutch?

Well at least nn a car, you need a clutch because the engine spins all the time and the car wheels don't. In order for a car to stop without killing the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them...
