When's the last time you crawled underneath, remove the side plug, then stuck your finger in to check the gear oil level ?? Owner's manual didn't say this ? They want you to take it to the dealership for service, which is why the owner's manual wants to keep you blissfully ignorant.

SOURCE: montero rear right side grinding noise.checked the brake pads,brake shoes,drive shaft,shocker,suspension arms,brake discs,caliper and caliper pins.found ok,but still grinding noise on rough road

This is one of them questions and need i say more ,as without looking myself and having a drive then i could tell you straight away iam sure ,because without hearing the noise i cannot even summise where or what it is because a grinding noise is -well -difficult to denominate exacty what one defines as a grinding noise ,myself i would define it as a rythmic noise with the road speed but someone else would call it that noise for a trailing arm bush loose or worn but one thing to check is are the pads hitting a part of the brake disk thats corroded like on the edge of the brake disk ,sorry to be absolutely no help at all but i hope you appreciate how difficult it is to diagnose something with hearing it and from afar ,but if you only hear the noise when on a rough road could it be the tyres like a deformed tyre or them town and country tyres with big chunky treads .

I have a 2005 jeep liberty. none of the 4wd lights on the dash light up when selecting the different 4wd modes, stopped working today. can anyone please help me with this


usa? not diesel?
why are you in 4wd? snow, ice, off road, do tell.
not sure what lamps are dead, no photo by you.
are you talking parking lamps dead in dash? called illumination
or the mode lamps. ????
where on the dash, the main cluster? where? TRY TO BE EXACT.
do you mean shift console lamps, ????? those are on the dimmer feed.
the best answer is get car serviced
or scan it, see if there are errors. to the 4wd system etc.

we cant do grinds here, we deaf and blind and....
find a shop , that can find LOCATIONS. of noise
only That works, ever.
grinding in all modes of use, parked, neutral. driving, hills, gears.
??????????
do you have any warning lamps glowing ,driving?
the lamps if the 4wd lamps are dead.
tell me you are not using 4Low mode on pavement, first.
most times fuse are first, 2007 this changes but 2005
there are 2 fuse boxes, cab and eng bay.

ON PAGE 166 in the oper guide
lamp 6 dead, 4low?
lamp 19 FULL TIME , dead or stuck on??????
or the switch bank dead?
command trac or select trac 4wd.? NV241 or NV242?
2 options day 1.

here is my guess,
you are using 4wd incorrectly
do tell what tires are sitting on.
the me it car is command or select trac opted
and all lever selections you tried.
EACH 4wd mode has rules.
rule one stay out of 4-low. unless off road

the opr guide is here if lost.
see the word secret , here.

http://jeepdied.com/books.html

command trac, 4w is not for driving on ice free pavemenet
Comman trac is part time 4wd, (the word part meas, ice or dirt)
select trac, is full time, (never in 2w low) 4H works on pavement even dry. page 240 in your op guide.
The rules on the 2 boxes are totally different.

What could be causing a 04 ford explorer xlt to be grinding when turning left, acts like auto 4x4 trying to kick in, any ideas what the problem could be?


the problem you describe seems to be a symptom of dirt or dammage in the autolocking hub system , you will need to dissasemble to see what the cause is any further , this might be a good place to say what i allways tell my fellow 4x4 folks if your gonna drive thru Mud/sand/dirty water then make it a point to carry a jug or two of fresh water with you and after reaching clean road again use this water to flush out seals in front and behind your front tires you'll save your self a bunch of worries down the road

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

It feels like my 4WD is trying to engage when I am driving down the road. a terrible grinding noise comes and goes in my font end. What could this be?


The encoder motor on the transfer case could be engaging slightly.A c0327 is usually set in the transfer case module.Replace the sensor in the encoder motor if this code is present.

Most likely the motor on the transfer case. You have several modules/computers that work the transfer case shifting. Since it is trying to shift, it narrows it down to 2 modules. The transfer case module and the motor module(the motor has a module built in). I do diagnostics, I have the tools to do it. I eliminate other possibilities. Wires and such. I place more motors, than all the others combined. It is the most abused electrical part of a 4x4 vehicle. And it is on the bottom of the vehicle.

4WD Kicks Out While Driving


Have your transmission and transfer case checked, this could be the only parts broken on the basis of what you have told us. when you said you heard gears grinding, it is better to replace them.

In your case, I would presume that you were driving on a paved road, Engaging your 4WD on a paved road and doing 80-100km would really damage your 4WD system. wetness of a paved road is not enough to justify the use of your 4WD because there is enough traction on both front and rear tires that could cause your gears to resist each other.

It would be a different case if you drive at 80-100km on a dirt road or off road, i will assure you nothing wrong will happen.

You may still engage your 4WD on a wet paved road but do only a 60 or below.
