Is my 4WD okay?
This will be my first winter for my 2000 Xterra, 3.3 auto.
I am only at 96,000 miles.
I had stopped by a friends house, that lives a bit wooded. I had to park in a crummy wet grassy area. Which was fine with me.
I started spinning, so I had to put in t in 4wd, to pull out of it, since I was on a hill.
No problem, locked in and pulled right out. Thats nice!! But.....
I got onto the dry pavement, only 15 feet away. I never turned the wheels, was going straight. I put it back into 2wd, but the light stayed on.
So I put it into Neutral and coasted back, and the light went out. Okay....
I drove up the paved road, and seemed fine, but after turning a bend, then going down the next road, it sounded like a chainsaw running really loud!!!
I even looked around, I thought someone was doing something odd. It was my truck!!!
It stopped after about 100 feet. Then was fine. What happened????
Does anyone know???
I have winter coming and I just blew my wad on everything else including the timing belt, tune up, tires.....etc...ugh!!!
