    Stuck in 4WD

    Thank you for the explanation on this. It does look pretty nice and the price is reasonable.

    You think the severly overfilled fluid could cause the case to shift on it's own, Nick?

    Stuck in 4WD

    I pulled the filler plug on the transfer case and drained just over 2 quarts out. It was plumb full. I have been occasionally adding trans fluid for probably over a year and wondering where it was going. I found the answer. Doesn't seem like that could make a transfer case go to 4WD by itself...

    Ok, thank you. Any suggestions on a scanner that makes sense for a the shadetree DIYer like myself? Perhaps I should just take it to a place for a scan?

    I haven’t seen the light come on so I have not. To the best of my knowledge my Actron scanner has been ok at retrieving codes. I can check it. Maybe I need to go with a Bluetooth option? I know Nickb2 talked to me about that a couple of years ago

    That's a great idea Dan. I've just noticed I'm leaking what appears to be trans fluid. I'm hoping it's just the pan gasket and not something worse.

    Drove home from work and turned into the driveway. Felt like I lost power steering. Sure enough, it was in 4WD. Do you guys think the encoder motor is weak and causing this? Any troubleshooting trees maybe?

    Im still not sure what’s allowing it to change to 4 wheel by itself.

    Stuck in 4WD

    While driving to work once I noticed the 4Hi light back on. I couldn't tell if it was really in 4WD or the light was just lit up. Considering when it happened before it was in 4 wheel, I'm gonna guess it probably was. I got it back in 2 wheel by holding the button for a second. The next work...

    Ok, I got home and tried messing around like Kev suggested. At first, nothing was happening. Finally, I held the 2Hi button and managed to get it to switch. I started driving and it went back to 4hi. I ended up getting it to go back into 2 wheel again and drove around a little bit and it stayed...

    I’m not sure about anything currently. I had to go to work so I just jumped in my other truck. As soon as I can (maybe late tonight) I will try your suggestions. I’d love for it to be simple. I’m just a little puzzled how it got into 4 wheel drive

    2002 S10 4x4 ZR-2 4.3 144,000 miles. This morning I backed out of the garage and went to enter the street and I could feel the familiar pull of 4WD. Weird thing is, I haven’t put it in 4 wheel since winter. I tried pushing the button to go back to 2 wheel and nothing happens. No light blink...

    Question about brake calipers

    Thanks alot for the help, Dan. My pedal feels much better now.

    Question about brake calipers

    Ok. I got the right part from the store. I installed it. Bled the brakes and, test drove it. All seems great now. I've now learned about these guide pins. Thanks for the tips and lessons here. The mess was indeed not really a mess at all by pushing the pedal down an inch when removing the brake...

    Question about brake calipers

    Ahh man, Dan. I never thought of that. I can't flip it around. I guess I'm going to have to go back to the parts guy and have him order the other one. I'll have to have him make sure he doesn't get another one just like it. Thanks for keeping me straight. I must say though. I didn't see any...
