Sara, I know this is not something you'd like to hear but I think you've got your money's worth with your 1999 QX4. It's time to part ways and spend your money on something newer and more reliable car. If you are in the DMV, visit our website at to see if you like anything that we can assist you with. Have a great day!


This sounds like a couple of problems, the tranny not operating properly could either be the solenoids sticking or the TCM not sending the correct signals. The 4X4 problem sounds like it may have broke the small gear box the drives the shift pawl inside the transfer case. All of the problems listed will take a professional to check and repair.
