Jerking in 4wd
Hi, my 1998 manual d22 drives very nice in 2wd, but whenever i switch over to 4wd it changes drasticly.
I only engage on loose surfaces and I dont run 4wd in very tight turns.
to get home I have to drive up a big steep hill of about 1km, now its covered in ice and it can get a bit drifty running 2wd with power only on the rear wheels. So I engage 4wd driving towars the hill, the manual states that I safely can engange it in speeds up to 80 km/h. During the accent I use 3rd gear and running 2k rpms. Then I get this terrifying "jutter" or "bang", its like a violent loss of power, almost like the drive shaft is snagging on something, but everything looks fine underneath.
Ive searched the forum, and it might be the "neutral position switch" thats faulty, but the thread is locked and none of the contributors stated if they were driving in 2wd or 4wd. I only have the issue in 4wd.
I dont engage the 4wd anymore in fear of causing damage.
