Yes it is a problem. There is a new design clip. The case needs to be disassembled, repaired and the new clip needs to be installed, or you will burn out your transfer case.

Will not having proper lube in rear transfer case make truck clunk


No. The transfer case takes Dexron/Mercon 3. What was installed instead, for fluid? If motor oil or gear oil was used instead. That would not cause a clunk. It would cause a loss of fuel economy. When vehicles get old and the mileage ads up. Parts loosen up and/or wear out. Clunking in the drive train could be related to the transfer case but could also be related to the drive shaft or the rear drive axle. Worn or bad splines, U-joints (rusted, loose, or seizing), worn ring and pinion is possibe too. If I can be more help just let me know. The more information and details that you can give, the better. Thank you.

Leaking Transfer Case


most Gear boxes with transfer cases have an oil seal between the main gear box and the transfer case so that the oil from the box is not passed through to the transfer case causing it to over fill. If there only a few spots under the car you have time to find exactly where the leak is. May be only an output shaft seal. Check the level of the gear box and transfer case your self It will be level with the filler plug. The oil used is either sae80-90 or oep 80-90. Check manufactures specs on this. If it turns out to be the seal between the two boxes then it will require the unit removal for seal replacement.

Excessive oil consumption. Some smoking when accelerating. No visiable external leaks. Any Idea? 1995 GMC Sierra 2500 5.7 L


excessive oil consumption and smoking is usually due to worn rings and/or valve guides in the engine. If you observe blue smoke coming out of the tailpipe, it signals a worn out engine.

If no external leaks, that's what it is. Maybe try to change the oil with a high mileage oil when changing the oil and filter.

I'm afraid, that these conditions don't get better with time.

A replacement motor, or overhaul of the present one is recommended if you cannot pass emissions tests in your area if required by law.

I have a 2003 gmc sierra 5.3 liter vortec why does my truck leak oil only under pressure


because your oil pressure rises to around 40psi when running and will leak at the weakest place,check your oil sending unit first and seals.

2003 Sierra 2500hd transmission or transfer case making grinding noise (sounds like a bearing going bad) it becomes louder when i give it gas. i checked the fluid in the transfer case which looked ok, i...


Sudden grinding noise with no prior warning * Primarily in 2nd gear, behavior in reverse may be abnormal; sunshell is fractured. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

* Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R sooner rather than later.

* Either a torrington bearing or a planetary bearing is on its way out. Trans will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death. Cheaper to rebuild now (saves further damage to hard parts), but requires R&R. It is drivable until it breaks.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.
