Why is dodge not covering the problem that many people are having with the transfer case falling off while driving it. This happend to us while driving 70 mph it a 2500 ram 2004.


Are you sure the transfer case had gear oil in it. Its like your differential it needs gear oil. If you let it run dry it will blow apart not to mention what it will do to your transmission.

I have a2006 JEEP WRANGLER and is making a clicking noise from the drivetrain only when driving 5-10 mph ,can you please tell me what the problem is?


Not sure but the problem could be with the transfer case. The transfer case uses a heavy double chain and as it wears it can make a noise.

Grinding noise....sounds like metal


Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

A rotational mid range sqeaking noise is coming from dash or engine. Occurs just after I reach 21 mph. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it stops after stopping


Just curious, check the cable under car near transfer case and see if it's rubbing on front driveshaft. If it is just loosely tie strap it to transfer case out of the way.

Silverado makes weird noise at 70 mph. Mechanic said it's the transfer case and also found a leak therein - wants $400 to take it apart to find the problem or we can just replace. Not sure what to do - pay...


It's probably the chain in the transfer case. I had mine replaced at 150,000 miles and it cost $1500.00 to do a full rebuild. And that included them removing and installing the transfer case and a new yoke for the driveshaft.( Because the play in the transfer case grooved the old one.)

2002 avalanche, 168,000 miles, vibration at 30 mph and 70 mph under load. Noticable at 30, very noticale at 70. about a 5 mph band at both speeds. Not noticable in remainder of speed band including over 70...


I'd guess you have a tire out of balance, it sets up a harmonic around 30 to 35 mph, and at twice that speed, or 70 mph. I suspect if you drove it at 120 to 140 mph, you'd find another one. Could also be a tire that has a belt that has failed.

How many miles on this set of tires, did you get a lifetime road balance on them? Hazard warranty? How soon before you need new tires. Need to take all of these into account, but need to correct the problem before you have a tire failure and a wreck.

Fluid Should Be Checked Just The Same As Engine Oil. Should Be Changed At Least Once A Year For Proper Service & Reliability. Should be Driven 10 Miles A Month In 4 Hi To Keep Lubricated. I Drive A 1975 Chevy K10 PKP FullTime 4X4 NP203 & A 1980 GMC Jimmy Lock-Outs 4X4 NP205, And I Drive Them Once A Month At 55 MPH For 10 Miles (On Pavement). Keeps The System Lubed Up & Moving. Have Done This For The Last 15 Years I Have Owned Them. KEEP THEM SERVICED. Low Oil Is A Transfer Case Killer. Also Put The Correct Type Of Fluid In, Each Transfer Case Takes A Different Type Of Fluid, Call Dealer Shop For Correct Fluid Type. Some Take Dextron III Or 10-40 Engine Oil Depends On Transfer Case.
