    Four wheel drive will not work

    Thanks nickb2 but at my age I doubt I would use it very much plus that thing is costly. That is a very neat tool though. As always I do appreciate your help here. The truck is working perfect.

    Four wheel drive will not work

    Thanks for the help. The wiring diagram helped; I changed the transfer case motor for him. While I was at it I put a new actuator on front axle. The fuse that blew was relating to transfer case motor according to diagram you uploaded. All is well. Shifts perfect now. Those bolts on the...

    Four wheel drive will not work

    It is a Chevrolet Silverado K1500. I am not sure which one he has . How can I tell the difference ? I looked yesterday and it has a part on the front axle that looks like it screws out. I know we tested the volts at wiring that plugs into this part and it has a wire that is hot when he turns...

    Four wheel drive will not work

    Thanks, I made a mistake on the year model. Its a 1999 early body style. Vin # 1GCEK19R9XR110459. I think you may be correct on the encoder motor. It may have shorted and when it did the fuse blew. Now there is an open. He said he drove it last night and the 4wl light kept flashing but...

    Four wheel drive will not work

    My friend was driving down the road yesterday in his 1998 K1500 chevy 4x4 at around 70 mph and he looked and all of sudden his 4x4 light was showing 4-low, it then moved to 4 high and back to 2hweel drive. He got to where he was going and started back home and no lights were showing and the...

    2000 Toyota Tundra white smoke

    I talked to him yesterday and again he has it parked. He tells me it is oil smoke like I had mentioned to him last month. Said it was sort of embarrassing to start it up with anyone around for all the smoke. This happened all of sudden. I thought maybe valve seals but they normally dond't...

    2000 Toyota Tundra white smoke

    I talked him today. He said he is now driving the truck since I told him it was not coolant smoke. He said the sometimes it is worse than other times. I told him to just drive it. Its a 20 year old truck that probably needs valve seals or something similar. I will report back when I hear...

    2000 Toyota Tundra white smoke

    I did go to where the truck was today. It did smoke but its not white. Its more of a blue and smells like oil. It did smoke a lot but finally cleared up. I think the problem may be the power steering control valve as he did mention he as lost some fluid. I have read if it goes bad it will...

    2000 Toyota Tundra white smoke

    I have not seen it myself but I did question if about misfires and codes. If coolant is getting in the cylinder I would think it would set a misfire code on that cylinder. I just talked to him on the phone and he did say it was white smoke. I trust what he told me . He and I have worked...

    2000 Toyota Tundra white smoke

    Thanks NickD. I have a pressure tester and am back working in my shop but not on vehicles. I might give in and help him on this one though. I will let you know what we find out. I know quite well that smell of coolant after running a garage for 30 years. Sort of sickening smell knowing it...
