F250 4 wheel drive operations

I have a 99 f250 and was wondering if the 4 wheel driving is performing right. When in 4 WD and when the rear wheels are slipping, no traction, I noticed that my front wheels are not turning nor helping to pull the truck out. When the rear wheels have traction then it feels like the 4 wd is working. There is no clunking or sounds of any type of diengaging. Is this normal<<<<<

Re: F250 4 wheel drive operations

What flavor of 4WD system do you have on your truck?

If, for instance it's the manual system, you may have a hub that's not engaging... If you have a manual transfer case with the automatic hubs, it's also a good possibility.

If you have one of the "push button" 4WD systems (I'm not sure what was available in '99) then it could be either the transfer case failing to engage the front prop shaft or a hub (if it has hubs - some of the "push button" systems leave the half shafts coupled all the time and just disengage the prop shaft).

If you understand how your particular system works (or is supposed to work), it's very simple to diagnose with the truck on jackstands.

Re: F250 4 wheel drive operations

I have one of the push button 4 wheel drives with the front hubs set for auto engage. I can set the front hub to manually. I have experienced this slipping a couple of time. What I see is if the rear wheels are pulling the front seem to help. But if they rear are spinning then the fronts don't seem to pull. I have set the truck up with the Rear tires in mud and spinning front tires on gravel and just sitting. Automatic transmission.
