|flatline||just asking, not trying to be a smart ass. the CAD is normally the problem with YJ's. easy thing to check first is vacuum to the cad, then cad. if all that works,check that you haven't broke an axle. then is the transfer case working, only thing that drives the front drive line is a chain.|

|zacharytyoung||No im not going by the light on the dash, the dash light sensers are all jacked up im in the prcess of rewiring, something im acctually good at, but the way i can tell it was working in the irst places is i made sharp turns on concrete and it made the sound of the front tires grabbing, now it wont make that sounds of the tires grabbing. o and i got stuck in a pit and try to engage the 4wheel drive an the front tires wouldnt work at all.|

no. it is most likely (almost certainly) the CAD on the front axle. it is a vacuum actuator to lock the passenger side shaft in. verify the vacuum lines are good to it (they come from the t case). if they are good, remove the CAD and check it out. you can replace it with a cable actuated one or repair it. usually, it is the diaphragm that goes bad, but on occasion the fork will crack.
easiest way to check it out is remove the CAD and let it hang. then, with the jeep running, shift back and forth from 4wd to 2wd and see if the fork is moving back and forth.

My 4 wheel drive is not engaging!
For some reason on my 1989 yj my 4 wheel drive is not engaging. When i put it in low 4 wheel drive, low gears kick in but not the 4 wheel drive. A freind of mine said that it may be a fluid that has leaked out of it and that maybe the reason. Im not sure but when i first bought it the 4 wheel drive did work and there was a little leak of something that did not have a smell, i know a substance was leaking from the jeep but could never figure out what it was. Finaly the leak stopped, and i went one day to engage my 4 wheel drive and it didnt work. Could the leak be what my friend was talking about or is there another reason?
