1997 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 131000 miles
About 2 Months ago I went to place my shift selector into drive and it would not move. Needless to say I had this replaced at a sum of $400.00 after it broke. Once the new unit was installed, the vehicle needed to warm up considerably before allowing me to place the selector into any position, be it Drive, Neutral OR reverse. I was told that I needed to return it to the shop which made the repairs however failed to do so due to a schedule conflict. It appears now that it has been used under those conditions that it works correctly. Are there any comments on this problem? Last week I went into the mountains to retrieve my trailer and upon arrival went to use my Four Wheel Drive. I placed the selector in Neutral and pushed the 4 wheel drive button then placed it in drive. Assuming that everything was operating correctly as the lights indicated guess what happened? I got stuck and upon making a visual inspection the front wheels where not engaged even though the indicator stated that they where. Now, I am faced with a delimma. Everything in the vehicle indicates that my four wheel drive is working however, the front wheels are not engaged. Has anyone experienced a problem of this magnitude and if so how was it resolved. I am an intermediate mechanic and perform routine maintenance and tune ups on all my vehicles. I have checked the fuse 25 Amp and its OK. So, now whats the problem? Kindly advise in order that I can resolve the Issue as I live in New Hampshire and depend upon this vehicle mainly in the winter months only for transportation. However, until this is resolved I see no advantage in using it. I love the vehicle and its in outstanding condition and will continue to own it. Please help me out.
have the same problem?
