O/T Rodeo question

I WOULD and did post this Q on the Isuzu board, but there aint crap for help over there. Just wondering if anyone here has a Rodeo with the "winter drive" option on it. Im trying to figure out if it is something like AWD or just a rev limiter or what...

Re: O/T Rodeo question

The stupid manual wasnt very helpful. All it said was basically "winter drive assists with traction in slippery conditions" ticking me off. I examined the engine on that thing, YIKES it doesnt even LOOK like a V-6. What the heck?!?! I hope i figure the freakin thing out.dang Jap vehicles. If I hadnt gotten an unrefusable deal on it, I would have gotten a cherokee...

Re: O/T Rodeo question

It's the opposite of a locker..when a wheel starts to spin, both loose traction. It also limits your RPMs in case you start to spin and have a right-foot-heavy panic. At any rate, sell it and buy a Wagoneer.

Re: O/T Rodeo question

i had a friend with a button that was labeled 'winter drive' or something, but in that car what it did was keep the (auto) tranny from shifting into first, so when starting from a stop in 2nd gear you were less likely to spin the tires and 'loss control' [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] maybe it's the same?

That's my guess. We've got a Volvo C70 with the "winter" button. All it does is keep the tranny from going into 1st gear.

Re: O/T Rodeo question

Remember the song "It's 40 below .... heater in the truck and I'm off to the Rodeo!" We usually move our rodeos inside during the winter. It's a lot warmer that way!
