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.

How do you u use the hi low shifter on a 1986 jeep grand wagoneer when it is in 4 wheel drive


SJ one of only 17,254 every built. rare it is.
1987 is First Chysler jeep.
are you on snow/ice, dirt?
we cant guess what you tires touch (we sure cant guess)
First learn how part time 4wd works.
this a SJ jeep right>?
the non grand ,version is PART TIME ONLY (ice or dirt never clean pavement)
my guess, is this is the
NP 228-229 box. transfer case. did you look>?


here is the list.
lots
http://jeep.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Jeep_transfer_cases





the SP228/9 is full time only in 4wd high.
i low its part time
part time is for dirt or rock crawling.
or stuck in deep snow very very slow
or ice, if crazy using this gear on ice, it will slip bad.

why not tell the poster, what the tires are resting on
or where you are driving
on the pavement
or off road.

the rules for Part time are strick and if no followed,
you can damage the drive ling (chain in case)
or get in to an accident, and causes injuries.

My 2005 Jeep Liberty is stuck in 4WD Low. I removed the shift cable and that is fine. I know it is the transfer case.


4wdlow is only for off road
stop doing that on pavement.
why not read the manual, RTM.
it tells you that same thing
and why post so many times.

also you failed to say
is it
Command trac
or Select trac
why make helpers guess key facts, like that?>????????

How much does a rear trans seal cost 1995 jeep cherokee


4wd? which tranny? some are 2wd, you know that?
we can not guess that.
and the seal is free, the labor is 99.9999% of the cost.
if you work on 4wd cars, you learn fast what labor means.
ROB, the jeep dealer sells it, and is on line and you can see the cost there, any time , anywhere on earth (WWW)
here is the link. to one of 100s.

my 5 jeeps, 88 to now
all have 5/6speed and 4wd
what is yours? ive not a clue.
is the transfer case leaking (if you even have one)
is the trans leaking, rear.? as you say.?
on mine, if the tranmission rear leaks oil, its not the transmission leaking because , only the transfer case can leak, see?
it replaces the tranny seal with the transfer case.
on one old jeep the front xtransfer case seal can leak to the center section. so look under your car , and tell us, exactly the spot of the leak. even a photo speaks 1000 words , or more for leaks.
what i do is clean it first, drive 10 miles then look.
wind and gravity are not our friends here.

In some cases, its better to just let it leak
but again, no drive line options stated at all ,so can NOT advise.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 292000 miles. Runs but will not drive in any gear. Selector will go into hear but it wont move. It can be pushed while in neutral. Was told transfer case was bad but even...


Could be either, a transmission problem or transfer case problem.
Someone will probably have to remove the transfer case to find out.
The torque converter, pump, valve body, or various parts in the transmission could have failed. The transfer case could be stuck between 2wd and 4wd or could have a broken gear.

My 93 Wagoneer is 4WD all time. Pulled into town doing about 35mph and heard a loud knock. It would do it a few seconds after taking off from a stop and when It would try to shift. Before I could get where...


Sounds like the fluid coupler inside the transfer case failed. In my opinion using those is a great idea
on paper but they just do not last as well as the older direct engagement units used in Cherokees and wranglers. I own many Jeeps and will not have a GC for that one reason.
The transfer case needs to be removed and rebuilt. There is no external repair or temporary fix.

I have 1990 Jeep grand Wagoneer and i was wondering is their a switch are a plug that you can disconnect the 4-wheel drive in any kind of way


Power for both front and rear come through the transfer case. Even when the front is not engaged, part of the unit still needs to turn to put power to the rear wheels. Therefore, you can't just shut it off. It is possible to remove the transfer case, replace the tailshaft of the transmission and find or have a driveshaft made to convert it to two wheel drive but it likely would be more complicated and expensive than repairing whatever is broken now.

2001 Jeep Wrangler 4" suspension lift


Jeep's transfer case output is poor for lifts over 2-3 inches. A transfer case drop should have come with your 4 inch lift, but if not you should be able to purchase it from quadratec.com or 4wd.com. You shouldn't drop it much more than an inch, since engine will be rotated into your firewall, besides, transfer case drop reduces ground clearance. The spacers go between your frame and you transfer case skid plate. A transfer case shift linkage bracket is also required to maintain its alignment. Then if it starts making noise, the dealer has a TSB parts kit to fix that. A better solution is a Slip Yoke Eliminator and extended rear driveshaft, but you'd be looking at about $450 and a days worth of work. Good luck.

98's do not have hubs. Sounds like the transfer case motor did not complete it's job. These motor have problems with brushes sticking if they are not cycled periodically.
