Transfer case issues....

My truck works in 4 high- i know that for sure. When i shift into 4 low, i have nothing. The indicator light on dash is on indicating 4 low, but truck won't move. Any ideas or where to start looking?

might be a bad shift fork in the transfer case. Think they are like $30-40.

used transfer cases
You also don't necessarily live in the best place for a transfer case like this either. Waaga Way (HWY 303) hill can be hard on the transfer case not to mention the other big hills in the area. I know that area all too well. I was just back there in July for my new grandkid and lived for 12 years up near Rolling Hills Golf Course.

I take it you are using the dealership down in Tacoma. How are they treating you? I've heard mixed reviews of them.

I say screw it, it s costs the same to rebuild one or buy a functional used one.

I had a truck that did the same thing, but it wasnt a Ford. Wound up being a vacuum hose. It was a GMC, 4 Hi was acuated with electric, 4 Low by vacuum. Not sure if its your issue, but if 4 Hi works, wouldnt it be something simple?
