Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 4x4 says its locked in on my 1998 f150 but the front tires dont pull. replaced front axles and actuator and still doesnt work. i feel it pulling a little bit but when i go to hit the gas a little more my back tires just spin like its not locked in. what could be the problem

1 Answer


its ran off vacuum check on the front middle axle and see if its just stuck that was the problem I had. I just used a flat head and put a little pressure and he should come right out. I found out later your suppose to engage it every so often so this don't happen. live and learn I guess
