4wd sometimes engaging

Asked by Lord Apr 28, 2018 at 10:22 PM about the 1987 Dodge RAM 250 LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok, so I have a 1987 dodge W250 power wagon
with the 360, the 4wd light comes on when cruising
while in 2 HI, when I put it in 4wd hi or low the light
dosent turn on and it sometimes works (meaning
the wheels will turn but only when it wants to). The
driveshaft in the front is spinning as well when in
4wd, not in 2wd. I can not figure this out its driving
me nuts.
