The shafts that the chain gears run on have been pulled out of line from the new chain and the shafts are not going back into the bearings or the housing . You will have to carefully offer up the housing and using something like a small lever to realign the shafts to the holes in the case.

SOURCE: 1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires

You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.

SOURCE: What fluids do I use for my transfer case?

Transfer case, Dexron II or Mercon auto trans fluid, Fill/check level plug above, drain plug lower (both on front face of housing), 20 ft lbs. to tighten, I believe I use a large crescent wrench to remove/install (of course I couldn't use my torque wrench).

Both the transfer cases used during that time look similar. See the following diagrams:

NV242: http://www.wjjeeps.com/nv_242_01.jpg

Here are instructions w/ pics:

(If you have the 242 I believe you can use ATF+4 instead of the special Mopar fluid but I would check first to make sure).

What is the stock tire size for a 1996 jeep cherokee 4wd


You should have a tire sticker either inside the glove box or on the door near the latch. Most come with a 215x70 (or 75)x15 but on the first tire change most people go to a 225. You can put a 235 on there but it's my feeling that that tire is just a bit on the large side. On 4x4 vehicles you need to replace all four tires at the same time or you can damage the transfer case (rolling distance of each tire needs to be very close to all others or the transfer case cannot adequately compensate and will fail)

The ticking noise is most likely your tranfer case chain. the chains in this case...overtime....will stretch, causing the chain to have enough slack the hit the bottom of the case.

When I put my jeep into 4WD it sounds like the chains are skipping on the transfer case gears. It is easy to engage from 2WD to 4WD. My jeep is a 2004 Rubicon.


I had a 1994 Cherokee with this problem. You may be able to remove the fill plug on the transfer case, stick your finger in there and feel if the chain is loose. I had a new chain put in and the problem went away for a while, but then came back. Oddly, the symptoms (clunking sound and no movement in 4wd) eventually went away on it's own so I think there was another factor involved.

Jeep grand cherokee 2002 transfer case questions?


When does this sound happen? Does it do it in 4wd or in 2wd? Does the sound change when turning?
If the t-case is visually not broken, it could be just a strecthed chain inside the t-case. A chain is about 280.00 dollars plus installation
