My car has an automatic transmission.

You do not have a front differential actuator on this vehicle and will have automatic locking hubs. The hub mechanism is what locks and unlocks the hubs.The vacuum actuated front ends are only on the vehicle’s that have a different system. You may have damaged locking mechanisms in the outside hubs.
