What signs can you look at to tell if your 1996 blazer is in 4 wheel drive?
The easiest way to tell is turn. Turn your front tires all the way in one direction and drive forward. If your blazer is in four wheel drive the tires will hop and cherp ect. Or turn your radio off and listen for a clunk when you push your 4x4 button on the dash. When engaging there will be a mild clunck. Hope this helps.
Answer The Transmission, in my 1992 S-10 Blazer Four-wheel drive, with the 4.3 V-6, came out of a 1996 S-10 Blazer w/FWD. I had no problems with the installation, other than having to jack the body up, to get the Engine and Transmission out. it will fit. but the computers have two different style processors so after you put it in you will find that it doesnt work
Depending on your model you either push a button on the dashboard or shift a lever on the floor. Since Chevy also made two wheel drive models you many not have a four wheel drive option. You should be able to shift at any speed, but I've always found it best to engage the 4wdr system at slow speeds on level ground and when the engine isn't under strain. I hope that helps.
