Could i be stuck in 4wd?
I'll try to make this short...
When i test drove my truck, i took it on a gravel road to check out the 4x4 system. In 2wd i floored it and it spun... i got out to turn the hubs but they didnt budge at all, so i figured they might be automatic. Got back in the truck, put it in 4 high and floored it. No spin. So i figured the hubs WERE auto.
Come to find out, they're manual, just really hard to turn. Had to use an adjustable wrench, and rust came out when i turned them. They were in the counterclockwise position, from what i've read is umlocked...
I'm wondering if they're rusted in lock position or something similar... if they werent, i should have spun even in 4x4 when i floored it right? Withoit locking the hubs in, the front axle should have been turning, but not putting power to the wheels, or am i missing somehing?
My fuel mileage has been rough, so i'm running through the things some of you recommended i check.
