One thing to check, which is often the culprit in these situations is the U-joints. With the truck off, crawl under the vehicle and grab hold of the shaft leading into as well as the shaft going out of your transfer case, If htere is a lot of "slop in it, chance are it is in need of repair. Also I would check the oil level in the transfer case, in an attempt not to challenge you intelligence, there should be a plug located in the lower part about 2 inches from the bottom or so. it usually has a square hole that a 1/2" ratchet fits into. Pull the plug, and stick your pinky into the hole, you should be able to feel the lubricant just below the hole, if not it is in dire need of a filling. also check for metallic remnants in the fluid. this is a sign that things are not as they should be. In that case contact a repairman for a more thorough look.

My chevy 2500 clunks only when driving in 4 wheel drive


May want to look at the front axles. If the boots are torn and the joints are dry, the axle is causing the clunking noise. Also,check the transfer case fluid level,low fluid level can cause the noise due to dry or damaged gears.

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.

Transfer case noise


your u joints are gone.it is common on gm trucks,as they are a sealed unit and the needle bearings rust .there are replacement u joints available that have grease nipples on them. there should be very little play,less than 1/8 inch.

Noise in front diff


Three probable issues;
1-The transfer case is low or out of fluid.
2-The drive shaft may be out of alignment due to worn front or back U joints (thus the clunk on shift)
3-the shift lever is out of alignment with the shift mechanism on the transmission housing.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.

98 Jimmy 4WD clunk


It seems like no one else hear at FixYa is responding yet to both your requests about clunking in 4wd.
I see two requests....in the first a 2000 blazer from Gloeckz
there is a rapid clunking in 4wd!
In the second it clunks hard going in then won't drive!
This is rayenc11s' 98 Jimmy 4WD clunk I'm no trans specialist and not familiar with repairing or troubleshooting serious 4wd problems but it sounds like this may be a problem in the transfer case.

Since no one seems to be helping you but me I'd suggest you go to a transmission shop and ask them if this is a common problem that may lead to a bad transfer case if not corrected!

Make sure you have the proper fluid in your transmission case, transfer case and differential case first or have a quick oil change place check it for you!

Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
