SOURCE: backing up very loud grinding like bearings

it sounds like the universal joints are going out. get them checked before its to late cause if they go out while your driving it can tear up the transmission and bend the drive shaft. I recently told a girl to change her's in her truck and she waited a couple of weeks and it broke while she was driving and it broke the end of the drive shaft off and broke the rear seal in the transmission!!! it will get exspensive very fast!

Your transmission needs repaired. You are going to need to take it to a repair shop.

I'm hearing a grinding noise when shifting gears in my 97 nissan pathfinder. It's not a full blown grind but just a slight grinding noise. It does it in reverse 1st 2nd 3rd and just started doin it in 4th....

check and/or change the transmission oil. Clutch problems are noticeable in 1st and reverse but as all the rest are syncro controlled you really do not need to use the clutch to change them. just get the engine rpms to match road speed and they will slip in. I am thinking a oil viscosity problem because of the colder weather.

Get underneath and check the linkage bar that goes from the shifter inside the cabin to the tranny underneath. Sometimes these bars, especially on GMC vehicles can come off or become stuck, if it does become stuck then you have to take it to a dealer because local mechanics unless they've dealt with it will only make the situation worse. i used to tow cars and trucks and this is a common issue with GMC from the 90s til mid-to late 2000s

You may want to try to put automobile in neutral then shift 4 wd lever. Also you may want to lubricate shifting cable and levers under car it should shift out of 4 wd while going down road.

1989 Suzuki 4 wheel drive problem

welcome to part time 4wd, its for ice and offroad ONLY.
rule #1 PT 4wd needs at least 1 tire on ice or say dirt.
if not it will WIND UP AND BIND UP and damage the transfer case chain. (i see you did that)!!!
also the locks love to fail, fixed many.
they need greasing every 15k miles, per the book .
its a constant service, and if water gets inside, AS ALL DO.
then more service. on the wheel locks.
if one fails the whole axle fails in 4wd.(slips but no grind/bind)

got one tire on ICE or now,????


the question is , as for ever 1944 jeeps to now, PT
is what if road is 1/2 ice,?
dry, then ice then dry then ice. dig?

answer, go to 2H and driver slower!!!
or sell car and get a 2004+ Vitara with full time 4wd
in USA suzuki is bugged out, sold all mine, they sux now.
never buy any suzuki in USA or CANADA
buy a real JEEP. (or Rav4 or >?) nor buy any ISUZU. here.
