Thoroughly flush the diff and transfer box - then refill with the correct type and amount of oil. To prevent this problem - extend the breathers to either inside the cabin or the roof line. This was a standard modification on Landrovers that went wading regularly. The issue is usually caused by the air cooling and shrinking when the hot gearbox gets ...

Please take the following text with a grain of salt as this is just an interpretation of a complex problem from a random dude on the Internet The steering angle sensor issue (DSC) is the most dangerous (and probably expensive) issue as your road safety depends on it. Perhaps it is caused by the later mentioned electrical issue, but this is something ...

Here are my observations (kudos to Myself for providing translations): DSC: Lenkwinkelsensor Versorgung [Steering angle sensor power supply] LWS: Schleiferfehler (Ableichbetrieb) [Slider error (calibration)] It seems that the steering angle sensor is not being supplied power as it should. This error was set about 500 km prior to the vehicle's ...

I don't know the laredo particularly, but on any car this isn't a particularly simple job. It requires special tools, and you may need to remove other parts to get to the transfer case and transmission. Some of this may be big or heavy, so you might need an extra pair of hands. At the least you will need jacks to get under the car, and some sort of jack to ...

The type you are showing above is just Four Wheel Drive (4WD). It can be switched between ranges of the transfer case: Two Wheel Drive (2WD or 2H on the gear shift above) Four Wheel High - This is all four wheels getting power with the transfer case in the high range for greater speed. This is the same gear ratio as used for 2H. Four Wheel Low - This is all ...

This sounds like it's a differential problem. Rear wheels slipping in turns means they are forced to rotate at the same velocity, so slippage is the only means to alleviate the torque applied to the axles by uneven velocities. Have you checked the differential oil level? The temperature effect can possibly be accounted for by the oil viscosity OR a sensor ...

Replaced the transfer case actuator gear (that in my case had one side chewed up the same way as in video) and the "triad of lights" and "low tire" lights turned off.

This is usually because the ambient air pressure when the bottle was filled is less than the current ambient air pressure where you are. The other possibilty is that a temperature reduction will also have the same effect. Usually a combination of both together though. This was a classic experiment in physics at school by boiling water then sealing the ...

tl dr: No The transfer case sits at the back of the transmission. It has two drive shafts which come off of it, one to the front and one to the back. You'd have to install a different transmission and driveline to the rear in order to do what you are talking about. It would be far cheaper (and easier) to get a transfer case fixed or replaced than to go ...

Normally, the center differential should cope with the difference in tire diameter. If you lock the center diff for on-road driving, you could get problems.

Pros and cons of an AWD transaxle vs a separate transfer case: transaxle pros more compact system lighter less moving parts in general less parasitic drag allows the car to be lower to the ground transaxle cons less flexible harder to repair transaxle is not cost effective to use in a 2wd car (a lesser model of the same car for instance) less flexibility ...
