Question about 1994 Chevrolet K1500
After stopping at a light or stop sign the transfer case makes a grinding noise but stops when reaching good speed. I don't notice the noise at all in 4hi or 4 lo just in 2hi.
It might be a loose chain that drag on the bottom of the case.
have a shop to do this job if you dont have enough knowledge for changing chain of transfercase.
and be sure to use the right type of fluid.

Make sure you check the fluid, and also, grab your rear drive shaft at the yoke where its connected to the transfer case, and try to move it up and down like you want to pull it out. If there is any play, your input shaft bearing may be bad.
If you wiggle your front shaft where it comes out of the case same scenario. Your output shaft bearing may be bad. If you have no play, be sure to check your universal joints, and also when the case starts to grind, play with the shifter a little bit. Could be linkages as well.
If none of that pans out, you have something broken in the case that is getting trapped in the gears. That is very unlikely unless there is no fluid in it.
Let me know. Thanks.
