How do I get 1990 Suzuki Escudo out of 4wd
I'm not sure if you are suffering 'wind-up'.Does your car seem to suffer a huge loss of power? If so, then try jacking up one wheel off the road.
Does the wheel spin around once it leaves the road surface? If so, then you just suffered 'wind-up'. That vehicle is not meant to stay in 4 wheel drive if not on mud or slippery surfaces. This will eventually cause catastrophic failure of the transmission, usually resulting in a smashed transfer box chain.
Once any 'wind-up' has been dealt with having released it from jacking one wheel off the ground, then select 2wd and road-test the vehicle. It should now be fine.
If the vehicle still won't deselect from 4wd, then you will need to check the transfer box for fault.
The transfer box and gearbox oil should regularly be checked for any signs of oil cross-contamination. There is an oil seal between these two boxes, and which keeps their respective oil from leaking through to each other's boxes. If your transfer box oil is reddish in colour, or shows a large excess of oil when removing the oil top up bung, then you likely have an oil seal issue.
Typical issues on that particular model are:
Transfer box chain failure.
Transfer box [internal] oil seal leakage.
Other things to keep an eye on with that particular model are:
Power steering pump oil seal.
Front wheel bearings. (increased failure when fitting wide profile tyres).
Steering track rods and track rod ends.(increased failure rate when fitting wide profile tyres)
Easy entry/break-in method: Remove right, rear light cluster with philips screwdriver. Using bobby pin or short wire, randomly short circuit visible wires within connector block until central locking automatically opens door locks.
