Have you check the fluid in the trans case? You might want to do that. Also, check your U-joints, and linkages. Make sure there is no play. If you are able, also when you start it up, try to locate the noise. You might get lucky, and find the problem. Hope all goes well.

4wd messed up in dodge 1500

inspect for worn components from output of transfer case to front diff input. If everything is tight and solid from those two points, everything else points to being transfercase internals. Make sure your actuator isn't faulty causing a "4x4 to 2x4 shift on/off"

Can only guess
The real issue & why ,don't know,
but the noise is a loose chain
Pull & Strip your case
Do not install a salvage yard part that may
be worst then yours
All the internal parts are avail at the places the trans shops
get their parts or online
There was a site I say about a year ago that specializes
in transfer case & has all the data & photos real nice site

4WD does not engage.

Depending on which transfer case you have, there will either be an electronic actuator or a vacuum actuator that engages the front differential. On the backside of the transfercase there should be a round metal tag bolted to the case. It will have a number on it that starts with NP. Either an NP241, NP246, etc. This will tell you which case you have. Grab a repair manual at an autoparts shop, and it will show you the location of the actuator for the specific case you have. If you have a vacuum actuator, check the vacuum lines going to it first before replacing it. Twelve years does a number on rubber vac lines under a vehicle. You may just have a leak in one.

G'day mate yes you have a prob and i think it is empty 'transfer' case Toyota had a big prob with transfer case pushing oil into gearbox , result transfer case empty gearbox full. fix is when you get the transfer case off (maybe have stripped and checked ) then drill a small hole in the front of the transfercase at gearbox filler bung height and run the same oil in both if its a manual that is. hope this helps

I have a 1998 GMC jimmy the motor on the transfer case for putting it in to 4x4 needs to be replaced is there anything I need to know to replace it

the gears inside the motor strip out because the
clutch pack inside the transfer case are hanging up
do to wear
so be carefull
you may damage the gears in the new motor
the way you can tell is to take apart the old transfer case motor and look and see if the 4 small gears are
chewed up

Installing Transmission and trasfer case. On A 1995 gmc Jimmy need to know were 2 long Support bars connect

They go from the bell housing to the transfercase.The one with the 2 holes on one end goes on the driverside.The end with the long spacer goes on the bottom bolt hole on the bell housing and the other end mounts to the transfer case right above the big electrical connector with the bolt in it.The other brace goes on the passengerside with the long spacer bolt hole on the bottom bellhousing bolt and the flat end with one bolt hole goes on the side of the transfercase.
