    Does it engage when rolling? What kind of lube in the transfer case? Is it full?

2002 2500 silverado - 4-wheel drive makes clicking noise some times, mainly when cornering. Now the nose went away, and no 4 wheel drive anymore. 4-wheel drive light is on, but no 4 wheel drive. Vehicle...


well typically is there is a noise when making a turn its caused by a bad cv-joint but if your having problems with the 4 wheel drive i would look at the linkage to the transfer case and make sure there is not to much play or bent or broke rods and stuff.

4 wheel drive not engaging


I do not have a vacuum diagram for the 89 Cherokee, but my 89 had the same issue several times and all it was is that the block of vacuum lines that go into the front axle on the rear of the axle on the passenger side of the vehicle. I ended up having to put a zip tie around the axle and hose block to hold it on. Have not had the issue again since doing this. Hope that helps.

Do you have manual lock in hubs??? Alot of these work off of vacuum. check you hoses, and also a pull off valve which enguages the front end. One bolt to replace this the valve the enguages the front end.

The defrost has leaves in heater box , blocking air flow on pasenger side most likely???? Check it out.
