    Curious

    My little old suzi escudo jumps out of 4 wheel drive at two spots on the way up my drive.
    She does it within a couple of mts on the way UP only, and has not done so anywhere else.
    Any ideas what is going on ? Just curious

    seen old landrovers jump out of low range under load going downhill....seen and used plenty of heavy trucks that would jump out of gears at diferent times for various reasons when they old and tired....do you perchance throttle off at those places???so reduce/reverse the loading on gears??? thats a good way to MAKE a truck get out of 4wd when its being piggy.

    Quite likely that I do throttle off, albeit very slightly

    Quite so. My 1979 series 3 would "reliably" do that. Only way to stop it....hold the gear stick firmly in the gear setting.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Is it coming on or off any of the concrete or sealed sections? could be winding up the transfer case on the high traction surfaces.

    That could be it, a moment of neutral throttle with no loading either way on the gears. Going down the drive you might be under engine braking so the gears are loaded that way.

    My Legacy can sometimes pop out of first gear if driving slowly on a slight downhill and backing off, at the moment of neutral load in between drive and engine braking.

    Check your engine and rear gearbox mounts, the engine may be twisting and pushing on the leaver.
    Then have a look at the linkage it may be adjustable. I suspect that it’s caused by wear in the gearbox though.
    Is it 4cylinder?

    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Mine does it occasionally when I hot real bad corrugations on the way to my parents batch. Come round a random corner and you get smacked with a road surface like it was a test surface at a suspension factory to find the "fail point"....Shakes the car so hard it will pop out of gear (Manual) Road is frequently like this but the location of the bumps moves.

    We did the trip on pushbikes a few decade ago and one smart arse going fast down hill thought he would lift his feet up on straight legs and yell WEEEEEE as he flew down the hill. He hit a set of the corrugations and did not "walk right for a week...."

    Personally I would not admit such a thing. So why did you poke your nose in here? See if he was considering a Ford Ranger?
