Textbook Problem

Technician A says that the 4WD mode of part-time 4WD systems is designed to be used only when driving off the road or on slippery surfaces. Technician B says that AWD systems are intended for off-the-road use only. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

Technician A says that the 4WD mode of part time 4WD systems is designed to be used only when driving off the road or on a slippery surface.

Technician B says that the AWD system are intended for off the road use only.

The 4WD mode of part time 4WD systems is designed for driving off the road or on a slippery surface only because on a slippery surface the tyres can easily skid due to the relative difference in speeds. When 4WD mode is used on dry surface, there is no difference in axle speeds and hence tyres rub against the road surface and the vehicle experiences difficulty in the motion...
