Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have been to the transmission shop and they tell me its the transfer case. Can anyone tell me how to do this myself?
The transfer case is a chain driven unit and if the chain wears and gets slack or if some other component related to the chain fails it will "slip" over the sprocket teeth under a load making a banging sound as the chain binds. Find a flat blacktop parking lot, while in 4WD and in drive idle the vehicle slowly (at about 5 MPH) straight ahead. No noise? Now trun the vehicle as sharp as you can either dirrection (you may have to give it a little throttle to maintian speed) Now is it making the banging noise? If so it more than likely is the transfer case. Small debris can lock the transfer case in 4WD also. Hope this helps.
