Should all four wheels be spinning at once in 4 wheel HIGH or is it "limited slip differential"? If so please provide explanation on how that works., Also provide info on 4-W Low how to engage.
I'm sorry but I just have a question if you can help. I am a Senior whose young out of work friend was taking me to the Ophthalmologist and he was having trouble with his truck. He does not have a computer so I said I would see if I could find out about it for him. My name is Sibyl Kellman and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and if someone can help we would very much appreciate it. Hope you can read what was written in TOPIC. Mainly he wonders if all 4 wheels should be spinning at once in 4 Wheel HIGH or is it a "Limited SLIP Differential. If so can you provide information on how that works. Also provide information on "the 4 wheel Low". How it should be working and how to engage properly? Please and thank you for any help.
all 4 wheels wont spin in 4 high.. in 4 low they will... if anything the particular truck may have a limited slip diff in the rear which works when one wheel spins then the other wheel will kick in to help get the truck moving and will also kick in if you are moving in reverse. other than these 2 circumstances there is really still only 2 wheel drive... meaning that one rear wheel is driving while the opposite front wheel is driving as well. .. as for putting the truck into 4 low.. you must be at a complete stop.. if you have an automatic it must be in neutral. i have a standard 4wd and you also have to be stopped with both your foot on the brake and foot with the clutch on the floor or it will not shift. but mines a 97 and im not too sure how the newer ones work. hope this helps
Thank you very much Dan for your input. I have printed out the info for my friend. Sincerely, SibylKellman7
I would think that the LSD would only be when its in two wheel drive because when I have my ranger in 4 high all four wheels are spinning simutaneously and when I put it in four low it's also doing this. But I'm not 100% sure. I think it would have a possi front and rearend. As does mine.
I have a 2007 Ranger and it has LSD in 4 high and 4 Low is so slow one can walk along side 4 low is for climbing hills or pulling out tree stumps
