ok so i hit Moab over the weekend. First time out there with my 05 Taco, I ran 4 hi for most the trail and hit some more technical spots that required 4 lo. My truck has 36,000 on it has been very well maintained, fluids and all have been checked and are all in order per the dealer. 4 lo wouldnt engage when i needed it, then when it did it wouldnt disengage for about an hour. That is after all the out of gear, reverse, level ground, shut off, battery disconnect, and all that jazz. Im used to manual 4x4, this sent me into a world of pissed off. So i finally after having a major wigg out just shut the truck down for 5 minutes and bam there she was. The truck was back in 2 wheel drive. What the hell? I got back into town and talked to a auto parts store, they say this is common and that Tacomas with electronic motors have solonoid sticking problems that the motor isnt strong enough to push or release the solonoid and shutting it down to equalize the pressure is the only remedy, minus making a conversion to manual.
Anyone have this problem any advice, or is my truck on the fritz????? Again Fluids are good, runs fine, no noise, the thing is solid as hell.
