  1. OK so I haven't seen many topics discussing aw4 problems or at least not the problems I am having. Essentially what happened was the transmission ran low on fluid and on the run to O'reillys I tried to accelerate on the highway and the transmission started slipping badly. It essentially felt like I was barely in gear and maxed at 45 mph. I managed to limp it to the store and top it off but it continued to slip and would only move if i put it in 1st gear on the tree,essentially 3 and D don't do anything/feels like it is in neutral. I have tried stop slip but it didn't seem to do anything. I have tried finding a solution myself but it seems like a million different reasons why it could be acting up. Since i'm a mildly broke highschooler i'd prefer not pulling the tranny only to find out that it was fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I will try to answer as many questions as I can. The transmission is a (as far as I can tell) factory aw4 from 1987. The truck has 135,000 miles on her. It is 4wd with the factory transfer case from 1987. I have NO service record so i don't know the history of it very well. I will try to get some pictures uploaded tomorrow when I have better light. As I said any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Anybody know any good paints that match the navy blue interior? I’m trying to paint some of the dash and trim pieces like the vents for the windshield but I’m trying to keep it looking OEM as possible. Please help me! Thanks a lot :)
  3. Hello. I ran my carfax on the VIN. Says its a 1988 as I assumed. But I think my engine was swapped out somewhere around 2006 as the mileage has moved around over the years. I am trying to determine if this is the original engine for this truck? As well as making sure i order right parts as I put it back together. Here is what I know. The Head reads 2686 with a large 89 on the top in the middle The block reads 53005535 on driver side front. The block reads 6-10-89 on driver side near firewall. So all signs are leading to an 89 engine in a 88 Comanche? The tag on the passenger side near distributor is almost unreadable, as best i can make out is only 6MX2I Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Stock running height with four cylinder. I pulled the front axle out. The po did a crap job at converting it over to 4WD. It now has the straight axle back in it. Now I’m stuck. I’ve done searches and only seem to find shimming for lifts. Can anyone let me know how many shims on the lower control arms are used to adjust the front so I can drive it safely for a complete alignment at a shop?
