Well, you need to get the thing on a lift and duplicate the noise, so that you can identify where to go.
My suggestion is to NOT WAIT, and quit driving.. Inside of the front axle and the transfer case are big, expensive parts. You do not want any breakage or failure because many more big expensive parts get damaged.

So, once you determine which component is causing the issue, you have to open it up and inspect for the offending components. Also, presuming nothing major, consider all new bearings and seals as you reassemble.

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

SOURCE: Four wheel drive wont engage. Tranfer case is

Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace

I have a 99 jimmy. and when I put in four wheel drive I hear a noise kind of like skipping teeth passenger side front axle until four wheel drive locks in. and a loud clunk when coming out of four wheel...


the actuator for the hub locking is faulty and not engaging the hub correctly. There may be badly worn teeth to engage or broken parts in the hub.
Have an accredited drive line shop check it out.

No four wheel drive


problem could be transfercase shift control module.or check 10 AMP fuse to the front axle switch since the transfercase module will send a signal to engage front axle then transfercase encoder is mounted to the shift motor so the transfercase control module control shift control motors also transfercase speed sensors.the transfercase assembly complex system work on since every thing electronic controlled.

1998 Contour, clicking noise coming from front wheel on drivers side as I'm driving(it's a consistent click)


With out hearing the noise it is hard to say but it could be a wheel bearing but most of the time a bearing will hum, this could be a bad cv axle or a brake brake hitting the bracket, try to drive the car and hit the brake a little and see if the clicking goes away, if it does then i would say it is in the brakes. if it does not then have the cv axle checked.

Stuck in four wheel in front tire only.


If Jeep is equip with push button 4x4 try this.
If you are stuck in four wheel drive disengage four wheel try backing it up 10ft to re aline transfercase gears.( Also linkage under truck maybe stuck.)

If Jeep is equip with lever on floor.
This one is a common problem lever on floor becomes stuck and won't let you disengage it. Have to Spray linkage with WD-40 or some kind of penetrating spray under truck where the linkage comes out of the floorand goes to the transfercase.

(Floor lever, Its tuff to get it to release I know I went through the same problem on my truck I had push it into 2wheel by using my leg.)

1987 Jeep YJ [Wrangler] so owner ship says''


Our Jeep Wrangler YJ's are equipped with a vacuum module on the front axle. It is used to engage the front axle when the transfercase is shifted into 4WD. Check the vacuum lines on the front axle to make sure they are connected. The passenger side axle shaft has a disconnect sleeve that is moved left and right by the vacuum.

Front End noise and vibration


Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.
