4WD Jumping in and out of gear
About a month ago, my 89 'YJ started having some 4x4 issues. This is pretty poorly timed, as we're heading into a Chicago winter, which means lots and lots of snow.
My four wheel drive engages immediately when i drop it into 4x4high. If I accelerate gently, it will stay in gear. However, if I accelerate at any other rate than "gently," the 4x4 light turns off momentarily, then comes back on when I let off the throttle.
4wdlo is the exact same way. Is this a vacuum problem? All of my hoses are connected at the front axle, and routed properly. I haven't had time to drop the skid plate and check for connections on top of the transfer plate. Could it be a fluid-related issue? Someone please tell me this is going to be a cheap fix and not a rebuild :-)
