Transmission problem
1992 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

It recently snowed quite a bit and it has been about 4 months since I last used the four wheel drive. I pulled the lever to engage the four wheel drive and the light says it has engaged however, only the rear wheels spin. I checked to see that the front driveline was spinning when engaged and not spinning when disengaged and both checked out. What is the problem with the front wheels not engaging? Is it a differential prob? Please help. Thank you.

Hi:
Check for damaged or disconnected vacuum lines going to the front differential.
Let me know what you find.
