Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan
Could be engine related or driveline related. Do you only hear the noise when the car is driving down the road? Or does it also
happen when the engine is running and the vehicle is in park?

The Denali's are really susceptible to front dif. wear and failure. Because it is AWD, the front dif is always working unlike a 4WD. GM, in order to lighten up the front end built the front dif in aluminum. If it was the same as the rear, it would be bullet proof, but much heavier. After about 80,000 miles it is common to have bearings failing. Remove the drain plug which happens to be magnetic. You may see more than just the normal fine filings. You will likely see larger chunks of metal some of which is not even magnetic but will drain out with the oil. You are likely looking at a $1500 rebuild. It will get much louder and run for a long time before it really goes south.

Raise it back up, the cable has a small end that must go up into the bracket to release the lock. With the weight of the tire on the cable the lock will release. You may need to kick the tire a few times to make sure it is hanging and not stuck. When it comes down, you'll se how it works (really dumb design) I had one where after lowering the tire to check the pressure, it would not go all the way back up. There is a grooved pulley that pulls the cable up, and if the cable jumps a groove, it will not pull the tire all the way up. The only way I got it back up was to cut a window on the side of the housing and reset the cable and wound it back 1/2 way.
