Why Does the Four-Wheel Drive Keep Popping out of Gear?

The transfer case on your four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle is located behind the transmission. Depending on how your system’s configured, it uses either a chain or set of gears to change your vehicle from two-wheel to four-wheel drive. This occurs through the driveshafts for the front and rear axles. The objective is to slow the rotational speed so that the wheels turn at the same time, creating greater force.

When you notice a situation, such as the 4WD lever popping out of gear, it could be the result of the transfer case losing oil. The seals can wear out with…

This can cause other engine parts to fail such as a blown head gasket, which is expensive and time-consuming to repair. It’s important to have your antifreeze level checked periodically.

Is the Differential Necessary to Drive?

You would immediately notice the need for a differential the first time you turned a corner in your car without one. Each wheel’s rotation is designed to travel at different speeds. To accommodate the difference in ratio, the differential allows for each speed through a series of gear movements.

When you turn a corner, the wheels that are closest to the turn, called the inside wheels, only have a short distance to travel to complete the arc of the turn. The outside wheels, on the opposite side of the car, need to travel a much greater distance and speed…
