My 94 GMC NP241C transfer case slips out of gear

My 94 GMC suburban NP241C transfer case slips out of gear and goes into neutral. I've changed oil and replaced the switch but still have hard time engaging or staying in 2 or 4 wheel drive.I've checked my linkage. It'll slip out of gear whether i'm giving it gas or evan at idle. The only time it does engage every time is in reverse and only in 4 low but will still slip out after a while. If I were to buy a rebuild kit would that solve my problem or would I still require more parts aside from what comes in a rebuild kit? The transfer case is a stick shift and not a push button. Thank You!

SOURCE: differetial locks for 94 land cruiser

91-97 Land Cruisers had a factory option for front and rear locking differentials. This is a seperate switch and is usually located to the left of US model Land Cruisers. The center dash button locks your transfer case differential changing your Land Cruiser from all wheel drive to four wheel drive depending if you have ABS or not this button either says ECT or Center Dif Lock. If you do not have the Front/Rear locking differential option then your Land Cruiser has open Front and Rear. Hope this answers your question.

SOURCE: 1994 jeep cherokee linkage

Problem sounds like an internal pressure problem not a cable. If you are able to shift into all gears using the shifter, the linkage is being moved properly. It cannot "come out of gear" by way of the shifter.
In reality, if you were able to manually put the shift lever on the transmission into any particular gear without any shift cable at all attached, it would stay in that selected position forever till you got under there and moved it again. Depending upon what transmission you are using you may have a throttle cable running between the trans and throttle lever on the throttle body...this may have something to do with your problem but would also affect shift points. Any electronic shift controls are also suspect at this point. have it checked by a competent shop. In not being there myself, I can only offer my thoughts on what I would test going into the problem...after testing a better evaluation can be made. Good luck...Hope it's something simple.

SOURCE: Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.

I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.

My 1987 GMC s15 automatic 4x4 pickup keeps popping out of normal gear. The only gear it stays in is 4 low. Where do I start?


I'm assuming you're talking about the transfer case popping out of 2 high or even 4 high. It could be that the transfer case needs a chain or gears replaced and is slipping on the cogs/gears. In 4 low it takes less pressure/strain to move the vehicle so it doesn't slip. I would put the trans. AND transfer case in neutral, with the FRONT wheels blocked, and NOT running, jack at least one rear wheel off of the ground, and try turning the rear drive shaft back and forth to feel the free play (free play in the transfer case, not the rear end). Excessive free play should tell you that the drive chain/gears are very warn and could be slipping. That would be a start.

Used transfer cases


Have you tried to add gear oil. Also if you ran it out or changed it did you add anti slip additive?

My 1999 chevy suburban slips and doesnt go to 3rd geer do i need a new transmission


sounds like the bands are slipping or the worst case the sun ring gear has broken, in either case a rebuild is necessary. Have you tried changing the filter and fluid to see if this helps? This is a littly costly for the fluids and such but I would at least get an estimate fron a transmission shop, they might get lucky and find a bad selenoid or vacume line.

I have a 4x4 1999 gmc suburban 1500 with a 5.7 motor and an automatic transmission. when my suburban is in 2 hi, i can sometimes put it into reverse and it will not move but make a grinding noise. then i...


unfortunately what it sounds like is the transfer case like you suspect. inside are bearings and gears and a chain what happens is the chain will stretch and cause this problem it will actually jump the teeth on the gears, you will need to have the chain replaced in the transfer case. sorry to have to tell you this but i hope it helps.

Do you have to drop the transfer case when you change transmissions on a 94 GMC long bed extended cab pickup 4x4 with teh 6.5 turbo desil


no you should not have to drop it. there should be a slip yoke with the shaft leading from the transmission to the transfer case. when you remove that and support the transfer case there will be plenty of room to move the transmssion back away from the engine to remove it

94 Sonoma 4x4 won;t lock into 4WD.


yea its not shifting again like before ? sounds like your transfer case solonoid has possably gone bad again .. these are a sometimes dont work item .. It is what shifts the transfer case into gear and it might be a little worn or weathered and not letting the switch kick it in gear all the way from the N position. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
