SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi

It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.

SOURCE: 1998 z71 push button 4wd will not work

Some of these must be reprogrammed.Double check the connections, look for bent pins, with a terminal tool or small pick CAREFULLY bend female connectors tighter to ensure good contact with male pins. The use of a good scanner could help pinpoint the trouble.

2008 Dodge Ram 4WD LOW light blinks while running in 2WD. When applied the 4WD High works fine as well as the 4WD LOW but the light keeps blinking and you can hear the system trying to apply 4WD LOW

Replace the motor/module on the transfercase. It has an internal short. Don't replace it. Soon you will have to replace or rebuild the transfer case and the motor.

Have 2005 chevy silverado stuck in 4wd-lo will not shift to 2wd all lights are out checked fuses are fine

If all the lights are out then the 4wd switch is bad but,if it won't come out of 4wd-low then the 4wd actuator is bad or stuck.The 4wd actuator is what engages the differential from 2wd to 4wd.HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.

You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

Switching back 4WD to 2WD - 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4L Limited Petrol

With any 4WD like this, always move a few feet in the opposite direction when disengaging. If you were moving fwd in 4wd, switch to 2wd, back up a few feet, then go fwd.

Noisy in 4wd quiet in 2wd

Sounds like the transfer case may be low on fluid. Does it do it in 4 high as well as 4 low? if so then its either low on fluid or its on its last leg. It just takes normal automatic trans. fluid if I remember correctly. It should have a drain plug on the bottom and a fill/check plug up towards the top a little ways from that.
