    Thanks to all who are answering my post. This morning we checked it,and the brake fluid is gone,there is no fluid left . We are going to jack it up ,and check the rear brakes.

    I agree with flynow_1

    You are most likely looking at a rear differential replacement. Don't be surprised if the estimates are over $2,000.

    sounds like your pinion gear broke. But no way to tell untill its torn apart. Also, I'm not so sure what you mean buy the brakes fell down. Could you clarify a little bit more?

I think you may have a blown Rear Drive Axle due to lack of lubrication. It will be hit or miss if the housing is still usable. I would be against the problem being brakes as the likely hood of both wheels failing at once is extremely unlikely.

I believe I would carefully check the u'joints first. Get under it with the emergency brake on,the wheels chocked and the transmission in neutral.
Check if there is any slack or movement in in the tube..

I have a 2000 gmc jimmy and its 4x4. whens its in 2 wheel drive theres a loud grinding noise from the rear end and it wont go. i put it in 4wd and the noise stops and i am able to move. what could be the...


sounds like your rear differential has some internals gone or going bad if it wont move at all in two wheel drive then its probably gone sorry. the planetary and spider gears need replacement or the splines on the rear axles are sheared off take you diff cover off( be ready for about half a gallon of gear oil to spill out.) look real good at the axle shafts and gears try to move stuff around. if there is excessive play that could be your problem. hope this helps

Sounds like your front axle is trying to engage but does not engage fully.check your vacuum going to the t-case switch and then if that is ok check your vacuum at the front axle actuator.It is located under the battery tray.

I CAN NOT SHIFT THR TRANS INTO NUTRAL SO I CAN TOW IT BEHIND MY MOTOR HOME. IT WILL SHIFT INTO 2H, 4H, 4L


Shifting to NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL, first make sure
the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Start the vehicle.
3. Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or have
the clutch pedal pressed for vehicles with
manual transmission.
5. Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
6. Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and
4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL
light will come on when the transfer case shift to
NEUTRAL is complete.
7. Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one
second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D)
for one second or FIRST (1) for vehicles with
manual transmission.
8. Turn the ignition to OFF.
9. Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P) or
FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
10. Release the parking brake prior to towing.

************************

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:
1. Set the parking brake and apply the regular
brake pedal.
2. Start the vehicle with the transmission in PARK (P)
or FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
3. Press the button for the desired transfer case position
(2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or press the
clutch pedal for vehicles with manual transmission.
5. Shift the transmission lever to the desired position.
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL,
the red light will go out.
6. A re-engagement sound is normal when shifting out
of NEUTRAL.

Stuck in 4 wheeldrive


Have you gotten a service light? Sometimes these electronic things just freak out. It might be as simple as a new switch. There is a motor on the transfer case that is responsable for moving the levers in the case that use to be done by a lever from inside the truck. I think it may be possible to remove this motor and replace it with a lever. I would check into this by calling a local 4x4 shop, or a mechanic that specializes in 4x4 vehicles.

Look in your fuse box for the bcm fuse (body control module) and remove the fuse atleast for a mint and then start the vehicle, put it in neutral and disengage the 4L and you are done once it is disengaged turn the vehicle off and re-insta the fuse yo pulled out and you should have no problem.

2000 GMC Jimmy Transmission Whine


Does it sound like a loud winding sound coming from the front right side? I have a 2001 Jimmy and the 4wd tries to engage when driving up steep hills and going at highway speeds. The actuator vacuum switch engaged when the transfer case vacuum switch sends the vacuumed air to the actuator. What is happening is their is either a leak in the vacuum lines, a faulty actuator switch, or a faulty transfer case vacuum switch. When the jimmy has enough air pulling in, the extra vacuum is trying to push the actuator switch in when it is not supposed to. It is a much cheaper fix than a transmission. GMC should have recalled the whole 4wd system on any of the S10's, the JImmy's, and Blazers.
