Sounds like a U joint or CV joint .
The transfor case is driven by a drive shaft but if not engaged in 4 wheel it dosn't turn .
If we are talking 4 wheel drive witch it must be to have a transffer case in the first place look at the main drive shaft thats what is wrong U JOINT

SOURCE: Transfer case leak

You mean between the case halves? It is just silicon, no gasket. These are good for the pump wearing a hole in the rear housing and leaking oil. The cure for it is a new rear housing and a piece called a case saver that keeps the pump from doing it again. Taking the transfer case apart to fix it is easy, I can tell you how to do it.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive will not engage front axle.actuator

On the front axle of your Suburban there is a thermally (an internal heater) activated devise that pushes on a lever to engage the axle. There is a technical service bulletin ( #76-43-01A) on this problem but the repair isn't cheap.It involves installing an updated devise with a DC motor from General Motors which also requires a new wire harness.
I have found that installing an aftermarket one (available at your local autoparts store) that just bolts on will work just as well.
It just threads in to a housing and is very easy to replace.

SOURCE: I changed the actuator, front axle still doesnt spin tires in 4x4

Pull the actuator out plug it in and have some pull it in 4 wheel with the key on and see if it moves. If not then the problem is between the there and the 4x4 switch by the shifter. Check to see if there is power to the wires and then follow them out. Maybe one is broke or even a blowed fuse.

SOURCE: transfer case shifter is locked

Mine did the same thing so I removed the center console and then the boot around transfer case shifter and the shifter it self.
This is when I discovered a broken linkage that had wedged itself between the 4L & 4H shafts in the transfer case. I removed the broken parts and reassembled and it will shift between 2H & 4H but not 4L until the broken plastic linkage is replaced. Found your post while lookin for the replacement part so I thought I would try to help. Good Luck

Where do i find my transfer case and what fluid does it use


1. Be sure to run your car (in 4WD) for about 5-10 minutes or so to warm the oil up and be sure to park on a level ground.First we need to gather our materials. This is what I used for my oil change:Initial expenses
  • Oil Catcher - $10 at Pep Boys
  • Fluid Pump - $5 at Pep Boys
  • 24mm wrench or ratchet (assumed ownership)
  • 12mm? and 14mm? sockets to remove skidplate
Transfer Case Change Expenses
  • 3 Qt 75W90 Gear Oil - $21
  • (I used Redline from myoilshop.com)
tcase1-nggid03733-ngg0dyn-320x240x100-00f0w010c010r110f110r010t010.jpg 2. Locate the Transfer Case.
Remove the Fill Hole plug first, then place your oil catcher in position, and remove the drain hole plug.
While the oil drains, clean off the drain plug.

3. When finished draining, replace the drain plug, and proceed to pump the fluid into the fill hole.
I filled until the fluid overran, but you can check the fluid by sticking a pinky into the hold and checking the level.
Replace the fill hole plug, and done.

How to change the transfer case oil


Get under the truck and look, you will see a drain plug on the case and higher up a fill plug. Use ATF in the case.

Is the transfer case and transmission fluid connected or do they run as seperate units on a mitsubishi montero sport 2003


More than likely both units will use atf, but will run as separate units. There should be drain and fill plugs on the transfer case. Plug towards the bottom of the case would be the drain, plug about halfway up would be the fill. Add fluid untill it runs out of this mid-position plug and replace the plug.

When in auto (4wd) will get a clunking sound from drivers front (similar to shen a cv shaft clunks ina car). No clunking sound in 4wd or 2wd.


Do you have locking hubs or just the auto button inside the cab?
It isnt you transfer case it sounds like it could be your front axle or bearing.

4x4 transimission clunks when engaged?


When engaging the 4WD system, you are pulling the lever on the Transfer Case right? Not the transmission, it's a different gearbox.
There were several versions of transfer cases that used both full and part-time 4 wheel drive.
From your description this sounds like a part-time transfer case.
Going with that, it is somewhat normal to hear and feel a mild clunk when engaging 4WD high range, especially if you are at a complete stand-still or under full throttle.
Try engaging 4WD High while slowly rolling at idle - no throttle. It should pull in fairly smoothly.
Once 4WD is engaged it will literally LOCK the front and rear axles together. So do not do it on hard dry pavement.
These older style 4WD systems need a little "give" especially when turning. The engineers assume you are not engaging 4WD unless you are in a somewhat slippery scenario.
Many CV joints, axles, U-Joints, differentials, and transfer cases are damaged and broken by folks who don't understand this.
Reading the owners manual should provide a clearer description of what you've got.
Bear in mind that when you come out of 4WD it may not completely release, again due to hard pavement binding up the axles. You can try this: backing up 10-25 feet in a straight line, or getting one set of wheels on the shoulder or in some gravel. That should allow it to release the transfer case and go back to everyday 2WD high.
I hope this helps.
:)
