First, get it onto some dry ground and look underneath. See if you can get an eyeball on whats making noise. Without lying underneath, have someone try to engage 4x4 while you watch from the side.Or get it up on a lift. When you have an idea what or where noise is coming from, I can help you with the how to fix it part.

    Oil beneath transfer case is a really bad sign. Likely, there was an internal failure which managed to punch a hole in, or crack the case. This is the result of internal wear and tear and cannot be avoided. If unit was well maintained, there is nothing you could have done to avoid it.
    Transfer cases can be obtained from many sources either new, remanufactured or used. They are not so large or heavy that the average person with some basic mechanical skills and a basic set of tools and manual, cannot replace. Try and find one with the lowest miles, on unaltered vehicles (no off road or lift kits) in a salvage yard. That's the safest most economical buying option.
    Good luck, sorry to hear that.

I have a 2001 jeep cherokee with 4 wheel drive the front right tires is making a grinding noise and when im driving it feels like the car is in 4 wheel drive I put it in 4 wheel drive and the took it out...


DO not use 4wd on dry pavement. do not. its for
ice, snow,or dirt.
if you do that and make a turn , it winds up the driveline. damage.
put in the dirt, at side of road, and get it out of 4wd.
read the manual on part time 4wd, its not AWD and has no center diferental to drive on hard pavement.

see stop driving. ..here

In deep snow what mode do u drive in


under 35mph its normally recommended that you utilize 4 wheel low it is good for maximizing the torque needed to pull out of deep snow. Moderate-Aggresive Mud and Snow tires also work hand in hand. ~Daniel.

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that


With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when neccessary...ie...snow, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

4 wheel drive


use part time on wet or slippery road surfaces. Use full time in snow.
Though some will shift into different modes at a standstill, I generally do so when rolling at 5-20mph...it makes engagement easier on the transfer case. when driving on dry road surfaces, why use 4x4? it uses more fuel and really has little benefit. differences in front/rear wheel speed must be absorbed by transfer case alone, while on slippery surfaces, a bit of tire slippage reduces stress on unit.

2000 jeep grand cherokee quad drive but onlythe rear wheels turn


usualy you will only have two tires spin at a time even in 4 lo or 4high. those tires are going to be diaginal from each other tipicly. now since your vehcle is equiped with quad drive it may employ a limited slip rear differential to help it along. however this only afects the rear axle. now you can test it by jacking your vehicle up and setting it on jack stands. one for each wheel onder the axle tube on a good solid (concreat or black top) flat surface. then have some one you know and trust to get in the car and put it into drive . now you can actualy see what wheels are spinning or not.now is were the limited slip comes in if you have one rear wheel spinning and the other is sitting still the limited slip will engage and start the other wheel spinning . now this may bang until the other wheel catches up (note that the faster the wheel is spinning the harder it is on your truck)now be very carfull stay away from the wheels tires and all other spinning parts it is a machine it can hurt you badly. but give it a try and it will answer your question. be safe hope this helps
