4 wheel drive making funny noise -

When I go from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive I hear an unusual sound. It almost sounds like something is rubbing together. Or like my engine is sucking tons of gas.

    I have noticed a similar problem while switching to 4-wheel drive from 2-wheel drive in our 2006 suburban. Ours makes a kind of scraping noise or chatter noise, and it does not imediately engage and takes a couple minutes to go into 4-wheel. Any ideas? Help?

Have you ever changed the front axle fluid level?  I noticed the same rubbing sound but only when I turn left or right in 4 wheel drive.  I don't hear it going straight.  I just changed my front axle fluid with synthetic mobile 1 synthetic SAE 75W-90.  I plan on changing the rear axle tomorrow with the same synthetic grade oil.  I will also change the transfer case sometime this week with dextron III.  My e-mail address is averion5496@yahoo.com if you want to follow up with my on my findings.  How difficult is it to change?  From a scale of 1 to 10, it was an 8.  Messy since you have to get the bottle above the hole.  I would purchase a manual oil pump which makes it less messy.  It took 2 quarts for the front axle with 75W-90.

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Vibration coming from front axle when coming to a stop it gets worse, brakes are good , maybe cv joint?


if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only


you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.
