    1990 ford f-350, clunk on take off...new front yoke new drive shaft new u joints,same problem. found that the weak springs in rear from 220,000 miles caused the front yoke to pivot up and down on aceleration from a stop. probably need new springs on this truck.

Hi if you have checked the drve shafts which are driven when 4 wd is engaged ? as previous post suggested and you are sure the u j s are ok ? then may i suggest that if this clunking when only 4wd selected is a momentum constant with speed ? it may well be worth investigating the actual transfer drive for possible broken tooth on drive c/wheel or pinion? have you actually disconnected drive shaft and physically checked uj s? as one may be showing no wear/movement as suggested however it may be siezed on the needle rollers cups and not moving at angles when 4wd selected have had this happen on both drive/prop shafts and especially! on steering wheel shaft uj s and also giving stiff turning of steering wheel at a certain point also steering fails to self centralise straight so may i suggest you check em out as suggested above by removing before checking 4wd drivetransfer box hope this helps

Sounds like you have a u-joint going out or that is out. head down to your parts store or look under neth and grab your drive line and try to move it back and forth. in a twisting motion, there shouldnt be any play between the two yokes.

What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

99 Grand Cherokee. Started with locking or binding with loud clunks. After long drive, rear diff was smoking and was replaced. Just drove it and after shifting into all time 4wd and then back to 2wd did it...


Sounds like a bad transfer case. Generally what you experienced is caused by a tire mis-match but can also happen by itself sometimes. GC's use a fluid coupler that is supposed to engage 4wd when tires begin to slip. (coupler is pretty much the same as the mechanical clutch unit on your fan, only larger) If the coupler fails, symptoms like yours happen.

1998 ford explorer 4wd makes a clunking noise when i turn and the 4wd lights flash every 2 min. like it wont go out of 4wd or something?


The clunking noise could be coming from three different areas. Either the front or rear differentials could make that noise along with the transfer case. I would initially be looking at the transfer case as the culprit since you mentioned the 4wd light coming and going. My thinking is that the 4wd engagement solenoid is malfunctioning and trying to bring in the 4wd, then releasing it. The only good way to check the function and noise for this is to put the car on a lift.

Causing a loud sound in back is that part of the transmission if so should when taking out the transmission that you have to take out the transfer case as while all at the same time .


you have to unbolt the transfer case from the trannsmission, or u can take it out in one peice just a bit harder. you might have bad u-joints thats causing the loud noise, like clunks.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.

98 Jimmy 4WD clunk


It seems like no one else hear at FixYa is responding yet to both your requests about clunking in 4wd.
I see two requests....in the first a 2000 blazer from Gloeckz
there is a rapid clunking in 4wd!
In the second it clunks hard going in then won't drive!
This is rayenc11s' 98 Jimmy 4WD clunk I'm no trans specialist and not familiar with repairing or troubleshooting serious 4wd problems but it sounds like this may be a problem in the transfer case.

Since no one seems to be helping you but me I'd suggest you go to a transmission shop and ask them if this is a common problem that may lead to a bad transfer case if not corrected!

Make sure you have the proper fluid in your transmission case, transfer case and differential case first or have a quick oil change place check it for you!

Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!
