SOURCE: 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4 wheel drive

I'm not absolutely sure on the tire size for the jeep itself, but I think they are 225/65/R15's. Not absolutely sure.

As for the noise, from your explanation, it sounds like the transfer case is under a heavy bind. Take it off of the road in some grass or dirt and then move it forward a few feet then simply hit reverse. Don't move much maybe an inch and it may release the bind. Once you get the bind off the transfer case, it should slip out of 4wd, unless there is damage in the case/shifter itself.

When operating four wheel drives, with tires of different sizes it causes extreme stress on the gearing in the transfer case. Larger tires don't turn the axles as much as smaller tires. So, this causes stress in the driveline as the front is actually turning slower then the rear. In turn, this will put so much pressure on the gears that it could cause damage and the shifting mechanism will not work correctly to pull it out of 4wd engagement.

Try those ideas, and see if you can get it out of 4WD. Definitely put four tires on the jeep that are all the same size. This will keep you from having excessive stress on the transfer case and gearing therein.

I hope this helps out buddy.

Why rear wheels are locked up but front are not


the first place to check is then rear drive line "U" joints as fail on a regular basis and can be not allowing the shaft to turn properly
T check for diff , jack up one side and engage a gear
if the wheel spins then the diff is turning but if it makes a bad noise (all will rumble a t a low level in this position) the diff will be faulty
It is possible that a joint flange has come loose and the bolts are jamming on the back of the transfer case housing

Tractor case 585xl front diff not driving. Front shaft drives but not wheels.



I am thinking that you have a broken/ stripped drive spline on a front axle. If you have reduction gears in the hubs , it may be stripped teeth on a gear. If you jack up one front wheel and turn the drive shaft that wheel should turn. IF so repeat the procedure for the other wheel and if it doesn't turn like the other side then that is the side with the problem

What would make a trans squeal while driving down the road?


You don't say, Front or rear wheel drive. First check oil level, On rear wheel drive check the thrower plate on the tail shaft at the diff end is not bent and rubbing on the seal, A dry oil seal can make this noise.so can the U/Joints. on front wheel drive , check the cv joints , dry oil seals , the drive shaft inner cv joints have a thrower plate that may be bent. worn or binding brakes can make this noise also.

Overloaded ERF EC11 and now rear wheels wont turn broken Diff?


possible but if you overloaded the unit I would be checking for a broken axle . Jack up the vehicle and turn the tail shaft to see there are any violent noises indicating a pinion gear/ crown wheel gear failure. remove drain plug to check for metal pieces on magnet

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

I have 2005 Cadillac SRX 86,000 Miles. I hear a grinding noise when I accelerate and feel a bump when driving on hyway, No sound when coasting, stoping or ideling which to me would eliminate engine or...


Grinding on acceleration, rhythmic thump on the highway... might be a bad u-joint in a CV shaft or rear drive shaft. Put the transmission in neutral, put blocks in front of the front wheels jack up the back end of the vehicle and put jackstands under the frame (do not rely on the jack alone to hold it up!). Turn the rear wheels by hand while listening and feeling for slop or roughness. Crawl under the vehicle and check for play in the drive shaft bearings, then rotate the drive shaft by hand to check for rough bearings in the u-joints. Inspect the fender wells and suspension linkage for foreign objects that may be rubbing or bumping on the wheels. Inspect the tires for uneven wear, incipient blowouts (blisters) or other problems.
If you don't find anything in the rear end, lower the vehicle, block the rear wheels, jack up the front, and repeat the check on the front wheels.
Check your transmission fluid as directed in the owner's manual. It should be at the proper level and clean, with no burned odor. If there is a problem with the transmission fluid, the noise could be coming from the transmission.

No power to rear wheels on a 98 Forester w/ auto trans.It runs and drives fine without any noise, shifts through all gears smoothly but will not distribute any power to the rear wheels. Anyone know?


just looked up the 1998 Legacy, and the all wheel drive is a constant drive system, so if you don't have any drive to the rear, there is no electrical switches or solenoids to turn the rear drive on or off the system is all mechanical, so you need to take a good look at the drive shaft going to the rear wheels, Jack the car up all 4 wheels and install jack stands under all four lower a-frames then have some one start the car and put the trans. in gear and watch the rear drive shaft to see if it is turning, if it is not you will have to have the trans-axle checked out for a bad rear drive gear, if the drive shaft is turning but the rear wheels are not you will have to have the rear differential checked for a broken ring or pinion gear, but what you may find is that the drive shaft may have a broken u-joint and that you can fix yourself, pay very close attention to were the drive shaft attaches to the trans-axle and the differential.......i hope this helps let me know if there is any thing i can help you further with.

Transmission quit moving no noise, nothing grinding etc..


If it doesn't move forward or backward, then the pump or torque converter are likely bad. First put it in drive with the rear wheels up. Pull out the speed sensor in the overdrive unit( rear housing on the trans) and look in the hole to see if the output shaft is turning. This will tell you if this is a trans problem or a transfer case problem. If it is turning but the rear drive shaft isn't, inspect the transfer case. If the output shaft isn't turning, hook up a pressure gauge to the transmission and check for line pressure. If line pressure is low, replace the pump. If line pressure is good, replace the torque converter.
