Never shift on the fly. its just not a good idea. try shifting while at a stop. then go forward 20 feet and then back up 20 feet repeat this a few times. do this also when you go to disengage . there is a solenoid that is pumpkin of the front axle this may be bad or weak. a easy fix cheap too for a 4wd fix

Need to take rear driveline out of 1998 chevy blazer


By removing the drive line you may move the car but it will lock up on you at some point,, the rear end, wheel bearing or broken axel will cause more damage, just tear into it and fix the problem before it causes you more trouble.....Hope that helps...

1994 ford ranger 4x4 hubs make grinding/clicking noise after taken out of four wheel drive


I think yours has the automatic locking hubs that slide over the the rotor hub. If this is the case than what has probably happened is a u-joint has gone bad and wiped out that auto hub.

Be prepared for some sticker shock on those hubs. they are not cheap. The usual fix for this is to replace the front axle ujoints and what ever hub is making the noise, hopefully just one.

1999 GMC suburban and just out of the blue the transmission started to make a grinding noise mind you this is a 4wd unit it still will go but acts like it stuck in low gear and no reverse I tried different...


The sun-shell in the transmission has cracked if you do not have reverse, and are in a low gear range with no overdrive. As for the grinding, that is the remnants of the sun-shell.

I HAVE A 98 GMC SUBURBAN AND IF I PUT IT IN DRIVE IT MAKES A GRINDING NOISE AND WONT MOVE AND IF I PUT IN REVERSE IT MAKES NO NOISE BUT U CAN DRIVE IT WHAT IS THAT


Broken wedged break pad? Wheel bearing? Try taking the wheel off and inspecting the brakes. If all is well, remove breaks and see if wheel turns.

Rubbing/grinding noise


Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly

You Definately have a Gear Broken in the Transfer Case. It is not Easy to Rebuild. I would find a Tranny Shop and see if they could rebuild it for you. Tranny shops here in OKLAHOMA Do.

sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots
