SOURCE: transfer case noise

is your universal joints out and that is where its rubbing?
running different size tires on a all wheel drive is a big mistake it can burn out the transfercase

SOURCE: MY 1997 FORD EXPLORER XLT IS MAKING A 'GRINDING'

did you change any tires? if the circumference of the tires are more than 1 inch difference from each this will cause the 4wd to try to engage because it sees a difference in wheel speed

SOURCE: Transfer case is making a grinding noise in 2wd,

Depending on how long the grinding has been going on, the IWE ( integrated wheel ends ) might need to be replaced.

The problem that causes the symptoms is either cracked vac lines from the IWE solenoid, or a faulty IWE solenoid.

Check the vac lines to the IWE, this is the block diagram of the setup

Use a visual inspection and vac tester ( might vac with a gauge on it ) to test the lines.

SOURCE: transmission or transfer case noise

I have the same problem with my 94 explorer with a manual transmission, Just replaced the trans a month ago because of gear failure and now It's slipping out of gear when the engine isn't under load aka Coasting, was Told By a Really good Trans Guy that this is a failure in the Linkage in the transfer case am about to tear into mine tho It's way over my technical ability but will repost here after I get it torn apart with potential prices for worn parts for the do it yourselfer, And Has to be the issue I hope because the gears in the transmission are in pristine condition the other reason for suspecting the transfer case is that when my trans is slipping and making that weird Rattle Clatter sound coming from the trans if I put it in 4x4 low it drives great even tho the front wheels aren't pulling since I have the front drive shaft off at the moment,, Well Here goes Nothing Wish me luck on this teardown gonna need it..

Grinding noise from rear wheel of carvan while driving


Was the parking brake on? Sitting that long it may be hanging
up a little. The cable may have a little rust on it and it's not releasing
all the way. If thats the case you may be able to feel the back
wheels after driving a little and they will feel hot or you may even
smell the brake shoes wearing.

G'day mate yes you have a prob and i think it is empty 'transfer' case Toyota had a big prob with transfer case pushing oil into gearbox , result transfer case empty gearbox full. fix is when you get the transfer case off (maybe have stripped and checked ) then drill a small hole in the front of the transfercase at gearbox filler bung height and run the same oil in both if its a manual that is. hope this helps

Auto locks for front 4x4 2007 f150 cant stop grinding noise


Are you under warranty? Make it the dealers problem if its eligible.

If the front hubs are grinding regardless of being in 2wheel or 4wheel drive it can be the hub bearings which turn regardless. If it grinds only when in 4x4 then the wheel shafts or differential or front driveshaft or transfer case is making the noise because all of these parts move when in 4wheel drive.

You Definately have a Gear Broken in the Transfer Case. It is not Easy to Rebuild. I would find a Tranny Shop and see if they could rebuild it for you. Tranny shops here in OKLAHOMA Do.
