    i have a very similar if not the same problem. when in 4hi and above 20 i get a growl/grinding noise. i am certin it is coming from the front end but other then that im not sure what it is. does the front transfer case gets its fluid from the tranny or is that somthing i need to check. it almost seems like the 4wd is not fully enguaged or is stuck in 4lo. there is 0 problem when in 2wd and 4 lo seems to operate normaly.

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

4WD Problem


Shut off the vehicle. Place the transfer case indicator into whatever gear you want and then start the vehicle. You placed the transfer case into neutral while the engine was running in gear that's why all the grinding.

I have a 1999 chevy silverado Z71 1500 5.3. It makes loud grinding and poping noises when I put it in gear how do I know if its the transmission or the transfer case?


the transfer case only engages when in 4wd. check the universal joint, it connects from the drive shaft to the rear differential. it may need grease or to be replaced.

I have a 4x4 1999 gmc suburban 1500 with a 5.7 motor and an automatic transmission. when my suburban is in 2 hi, i can sometimes put it into reverse and it will not move but make a grinding noise. then i...


unfortunately what it sounds like is the transfer case like you suspect. inside are bearings and gears and a chain what happens is the chain will stretch and cause this problem it will actually jump the teeth on the gears, you will need to have the chain replaced in the transfer case. sorry to have to tell you this but i hope it helps.

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?


there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

1999 Suburban 4WD, Noise from the transfer case?


Your problem is similiar to mine . the web-site has been helpful. $2000.00 sounds way to much for repair on that vehicle with such high mileage. I went to a dismantler and bought a used transfer case for under $350.00. Did the labor myself with a little help. It's not too difficult if you have a some diy experience or ability. As your working on it stay with the web-site for install hints or go to autozone.com for repair diagrams.
Good luck have a good day.
