1995 dodge dakota transfer case problems 3.9L V6

When you put the truck in to four wheel drive it says that it is in but when you go to move and the truck moves and then when it is under a little stress it like tries to jump out of gear and it makes all kinds of clicking noises and sounds like something is going to break. I think that it might have to do wiht the linkage or maybe the transfer case is not going all the way into gear.

    There is no vibrations or shaking of any sort. It drives good and it doesn't have any problems with putting it into four wheel drive high or low but it just makes all kinds of noises and doesn't want to let the truck move very well.

    Out of curiosity do you get any vibration or shaking with the vehicle at any speed? Regardless of whether it is in 4wd or not?

It sounds like you already have a Tooth Broken of of the Main 4X4 Gear inside the Transfer Case. Most Tranny Shops will rebuild these along with Tranny's. You might want to get a Rebuild or at least let them Find out Which Gear is Busted. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Dodge 2001 4x4 Dakota Sport- Replaced the Transfer Case Motor but it still will not go onto 4WD. What do I do Next?

try checking your silinoid. Some of these newer vehicles have an electronic silinoid that is responsible for engaging your transfer case into four wheel drive. Also if you have push button or shift on the fly four wheel drive your switch may have gone bad. I hope this helps you.

Truck tries to shift into 4 wheel drive while driving in 2 wheel drive, real bad grinding sound, from transfer case.its getting way worse

Sounds like the selinods is trying to put it into four wheel while moving. 1st, I would unplug the electric connection and have it looked at SOON .It will tear-up your transfer case at the least. It may be the switch is shorting out and sending a signal for it to engage. Don't keep driving it the way it is...will cost you big time !!!!

When place in four wheel steering becomes very hard, and pulling in my driveway front tires locked up. only happens in 4 wheel. 2005 dakota

A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?

If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.

Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.

Four wheel drive shifter will not move

Put the transmission into neutral, then allow the vehicle to roll backwards, this will unbind the transfer case, pull on the shifter while rolling. If that doesn't work, then your linkage under the vehicle has something putting it in a bind. look around and make sure it moves around with slack. Enjoy
