Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
When I try to shift out of 4 wheel drive it takes a couple hundred yards to switch back to 2 wheel drive. When it does switch over it makes a noise and the vehicle shakes like you ran over a pothole. Any ideas on what it may be and if it would be an expensive repair.
I also have a 1998 jeep cherokee sport, i was having the same issues so i asked my uncle who is a mechanic.. he told me since the jeep automatically locks the hubs when you put it in 4 wheel drive, sometimes the hub locks get stuck trying to unlock, to solve this when you switch back to 2 wheel drive, reverse like 10 - 15 feet, the wheels spinning the opposite way help unlock the hubs, since i started doing this as soon as i reverse i feel the 4 wheel drive unengage and have not had a problem with it since, give it a try and see if that fixes your problem

Yes,,, check oil level... Also check the mount under the transmission tailshaft. If it is broken it will give you a thump when its loaded/unloaded. The shaking may be something else aggravated by the original problem. While under there, check all "u" joints and driveshaft slip joint.
