Depending on how long the grinding has been going on, the IWE ( integrated wheel ends ) might need to be replaced.

The problem that causes the symptoms is either cracked vac lines from the IWE solenoid, or a faulty IWE solenoid.

Check the vac lines to the IWE, this is the block diagram of the setup

Use a visual inspection and vac tester ( might vac with a gauge on it ) to test the lines.

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.

Transfer case making a noise in 2wd. Noise stops when put in 4wd. Help!! Its a 2003 explorer sport trac.


The item that is in operation when in 2 WD is a spigot bearing on the shaft between the drive shaft and the output shaft into the transfer case. IT stops working when the gear connects both shafts together as in 4 WD. It was a common problem if the 4WD drive is seldom used as this bearing gets little lubrication as one shaft is spinning and the other is not

2004 went to put in gear and made alot of noise and grinding so i stop right away


If its 4wd then you have a concern with the transfer case being stuck between 2wd and 4wd. If its not 4wd then its a broken planatary gearset inside the transmission,

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?


there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

You maybe have a bad switch and it's activating the actuator when it's not supposed to. Try unplugging the actuator by the front diff. See if that makes a difference.
