  If the car is all wheel drive tires cannot be mismatched as far as circumference goes. You will destroy the transfer case. If it is noisy it is too late.

This can be caused by worn out fluid in the transfer case, this cause the clutch to stick in the transfer case. The Transfer case fluid (ATF) should be replaced with clean fluid every 30,000 miles or so, if you haven't done that drain the fluid and replace it with clean Dexron Type VI ATF

Hi BlvdJoe. I am having EXACT same issue on my 96. I would pull on shifter and noise would quiet down. Changed fluid, no help. This weekend had a new transfer case installed and guess what... noise is STILL there! Mechanics swore it was transfer case as noise would double when pulled into 4-low. I am tearing my hair out. If you found answer let me know at ronhenke@yahoo.com

Transfer case is popping/jerking in low speed turns


Center differential is broken,you can test it by doing tight circles in a car park 3 or 4 to the left and repeat to the right,if it doesn't un block and it still feels like you're driving over marbles (big ones) when you turn you're sure it's the c.diff.
Check tyres are all in spec.identical and same usage, right pressure.

Check tire size and add a Limited Slip additive in the transfer case!

Leaking transfer case..


First of all yes it will damage the transfer case with no oil in it or even low oil. if it is just a seal then it is easy to replace, but if it means splitting the transfer case this is not a job for the diy, unless you have experience with transmissions or transfer cases. It should not be too expensive to have the work done by a profesional. Which also give you a warranty.

Transfer case fluid?


Under the truck at the rear of the transfer case there is a plug, pull it out, you should be able to touch the fluid with your little finger, that will be a level that is just below the fill hole

Holling noise?


Chances are you have a wheel bearing that's gone bad. You may also have a rear differential bearing bad.
