Just wondering.... if this car is in 2 wheel drive does it use the front or the rear wheels?
This car has a serious problem in 4 wheel drive.... it doesnt want to move... almost like a brake is dragging... but the drag is gone when you go back to 2 wheel.

FRont wheels all the time,rear wheels when 4WD is engaged.
Just what I needed to know

One possibility is that the rear differential has been changed. The turbo cars have a 3.7:1 gear ratio, while the non-turbo cars have a 3.9:1 ratio. That would make it really difficult to go anywhere in 4WD.
My Brother has had this car for 2 or 3 years... and last winter the 4wd worked fine... I likely need to climb under there and see if there are any obvious problems with the rear driver train.
Sorry I didn't add it to the title.. it is a turbo
