My 1990 chevy is making a clicking noise around the transfer case
I have noticed a cliking noise coming from underneath my truck, sounds like its coming from around the transfer case. I looked at it today and the transfer case is leaking from the rear of it just a little fluid but the noise only is made when I step on the gas not as bad when I let off.

Transfer case is bad. My first guess. If the transmission were bad it wouldn't move at any position. Is there any noise? You have 4 possibilities, Front and rear differentials, transfer case, and the transmission.
Automatic ? Worn Out Main Bearing in the Transmission, if it is 4x4, check Transfer Case too, best if to put your truck on block, no wheel touching the floor, put it in gear and check underneath where the noise is coming from ! Could need to Replace the Transmission or Replace the bearing inside, check if it has full oil too.. !
the parking brake rusts and makes a rubbing sound. it is inside of the rear disks. you have to remove the caliper then the caliper bracket. pull the disk off and inspect the parking brake. very common problemas most automatic trucks no one ever uses the parking brake
Sometimes leaves or debris collect inside the blower motor case Also if the vehicle has alot of miles and the noise changes tones when changing blower motor speeds the motor may be failing or in need of lubrication. First i would check and clean the blower motor case of debris or leaves. This requires removing nthe blower motor and looking in the housing. Good Luck and I Hope this was very helpful.
it's possible you might need to just change the trans case fluid.... it's a pretty simple task, i usually do all the small minor work first before i take it to a dealer to fix.... if they said you need a new trans case, but didn't tell you why, more than likely there might be something you could do yourself to make it better... those service men have been working around vehicles long enough, they should be able to tell you exactly what's wrong!
i would also do a tranny fluid change to... some of the noise could be coming from there too -- when you change either fluid, add a little lucas transmission fluid stabilizer, it helps alot with seals and makes the fluid stick to the gears better...
