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.

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

I have a clunknoise from my transfer case how do i fix it


most of the time a clunk from under the vehicle when shifting gears (whether going forward or reverse) is a u-joint. check them at both ends of the drive shaft. (possibly 1 in the middle, not familiar with your particular truck)

double check u-joints before suspecting internal problem with transfeer case. Coupling between transmission and transfeer case could be worn, as well as rear slip joint on tail shaft. If not rebuilding the transfeer case yourself, get plenty of refferences before hiring some one to overhall transfercase. InMrFixIt

Transfer case clunk 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4x4


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.

Crackling noise from transfer case


What you may be hearing is the wheel bearings instead of the transfer case. I had this problem with GM before and found it to be the wheel bearing was bad. I know it is not what you think, but it would be an easy thing to check first.
