Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

After I drive on the interstate, the front wheels try to engage in 4 x4. I hear a grinding sound when slowing down. I go to neutral then engage 4hi then go back to 2hi and it stops until I drive for any amount of time and it starts again. Any solution?

What year is it?

Is it an old one that you have to lock the 2 hub or the newer one that select 2wd and 4wd from the inside of the cab.?


I will spend few minutes under the truck to look for leaks first.

Check the transfer case for the correct fluid level.

Check and lube all the U joints (IF THEY ARE LUBE-ABLE)

Check for free play on the axle.

Check rear diff. fluid level


Just check everything under the truck.


If it's shift from the cab. Lock for the unit the engage the front wheel.

You will need a friend to switch the selector from 2WD and 4WD.


The motor that do the shift movement is what need to be inspected.

If there is a grease fitting or filler hold the please get the correct lube and apply the correct amount.


If the good old days,all manufacture recommend driving the truck backward after you switch from 2WD to 4WD. Under your sun visor there may be instruction on how to "correctly" make the switch.


Just lube away and check for the near the transfer case,

I would check the drain the transfer case oil and fill it up with fresh fluid.


Please post your finding when you have a chance.


Good luck.

Pretty normal for some clunking and clanking on electric transfer cases especially if you don't use 4 wheel drive much. Its caused by the all the actuators forcing the gear shift. My 2004 yukon does it as well but works fine when in use. Gets quieter as gears are worn in. Wouldn't worry about it.

Have you had codes checked ? While connected to a good scanner that will check transfer case switch to show if switch is working, and it could be the switch on the side of the transmission.

I have a 1996 Chevrolet z71 4 x4 from 2 high to 4 high or 4 low they blink I can hear engage but won't do noting


Try shifting to neutral before putting in 4 high or 4 low.
if that doesn't work then I have a feeling its the modulator that puts it in 4 wheel drive that's broke.

You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.

4 wheel drive engages itself after rain or snow


I had that problem last year. Dodge fixed it for $500.00 it was the "Transfer Case Motor". Rock Auto Online http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php has them for $140.00. 3 bolts, two plugs, 15mins. and your done. Wish I had known it would have saved me $360.00.
