Q: 2003 Toyota Tacoma, 5spd manual, only moves in 4wd. It turns the front wheels but not the back ones.

asked by on

My truck doesn't move in 2wd. When I put it in 4wd, it drives just the front wheels. Clutch and transmission feel fine. The rear drive shaft spins while driving, but the rear wheels have no power.

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
