Clicking noise in front end when 4x4 is ingaged.

2005 chevy silverado 4x4 w/t. When I put it in 4x4 drive it makes a bad wineing noise, mostly when I let off the gas and slow down. 4x4 seems to be working fine but also when you hit the brakes in the snow it's like the front end jumps out of gear and makes a real bad clicking noise. What could the problem be?

Have the front hubs and CV joints checked, that is where this kind of noise most commonly comes from.

Loud clicking noise from front end of 2000 chevy blazer 4x4


Is the clicking noise most prevalent when turning close to full lock?
If so, then check your front drive shafts. It could be that their joints are heavily worn.

If not, then please describe when the clicking noise is most prevalent.

This sounds like the front drive shaft that may have worn u joints. Put the vehicle in park, set the brake and proceed to shake the front drive shaft up and down to inspect for wear. Let me know what you find.

Your vehicle is an old OBD1 Vehicle.
Forget fuses and sensors,they have no role

Check for vacuum to the front axle vacuum actuator,when in 4 wheel
The console shift indicator bulb, is probably burnt out

4x4 quit working


Jack up the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Have someone get in it and put it in 4wd and drive. Release the brake. Rear wheels are spinning only right. Don't get under it but look under it and see if the front driveshaft is spinning. If the shaft is spinning but the wheels aren't it is likely a bad front axle actuator. If the front shaft isn't spinning it is a transfercase problem.

99 Silverado 4-wheel drive not engaging


It does not seem that sufficient diagnosis was done. No, you cant give a specific diagnosis like that without tearing unit down. It's likely that they told you the most common failure and left it at that. Likely there is a problem with your unit...I think this becomes more of a trust issue than a mechanical one. A second opinion from an independent reputable shop may help but either way, you need to have it fixed. In not using it much, it makes me wonder how it got worn.
good luck
