I turn at slow speeds and my transfer case sticks in awd a little bit. I changed the fluid with the correct autotrac II transfer case fluid twice, but it doesn't completely fix the problem.

Center differential


IF you are in constant 4wd then you will not have a centre diff unless you have an AWD. The difference is that AWD transfer cases have a centre diff that allows different road speeds between the front and rear diffs as in going over speed bumps and dips ion the road It is the same operation in the front and rear diffs that allow one wheel to go faster than the other when cornering. However in 4wd drive there is no diff action in the transfer case and both front and rear axles drive at the same speed regardless of speed bumps and dips in the road . This action produces what is known as torque wind up which results in the handling characteristics. This torque wind up places stress on all the drive line train and results in failures such as .that you describe.. This wind up is not noticeable when driving on loose surfaces slippery surfaces or in mud as it is allowed to escape when the wheels spin . If you have an AWD with diff lock capabilities then check that the diff lock is operating correctly

I have a 2003 Envoy and 4 lo works but 4 hi and awd doesn't?!?!?


It's a good possibility that some of the clutches in the transfer case are shot. When was the last time the transfer case fluid was changed? It needs to be changed every 50K miles using GM AutoTrak II fluid.

1999 olds bravada smart trac four wheel dosent engage


Probably the transfer case encoder motor. Unplugging it at the wiring harness should make the "service awd or smart trac" light come on. This will tell you the awd controller module is probably OK. Common failure item to Bravada's. Try "thepartsladi" eBay store for lowest price motor, beware aftermarket!!! Also make sure transfer case fluid is "blue" GM Auto-Trak II only! If not bllue when checking change twice after driving for a week with blue fluid.

99 bravada sluggish/hesitating while turning right or left


If youre talking about wheel hop when turning at slow speeds with only the info you have provided I would guess it has smart track AWD and this is normal, How ever if you have push button 4x4 controls your front drive axle could be locked in, in that case have a garage check it out...

Transfer case fluid for 99 suburban


If it has auto 4x4. which will have 4 push buttons on the dash it will take auto trac fluid that you will need to get at your local GM dealer. A regular transfer case will take Automatic transmission fluid.

Vibration and/or slippage feel on slow right turn


You could be experiencing a slippage from the transfer-case as the clutch in there has to give or "slip" or drive-line binding could occur. most of the time this can be corrected just by servicing the transfer case and using the proper fluid and additive for the viscus clutches inside. The proper fluid is "autotrac fluid" from any g.m. dealer. its not cheap but must be used because of this condition. You could also be experiencing tire slipage because the clutch may not slip as it should. once again check and or service tha transfer case. To check the fluid you have to remove the "fill" plug on the rear of the transfer-case. This is the upper plug. Some are an allen hole requiring an allen wrench and some have a big hex bolt head aprox.1 1/4" in diameter. after removing the plug you should be able to feel the fluid on your finger if you stick it in there. autotrac fluid is clear in color and should not smell burn't. Good luck

2002 bravada


that noise could be a lot of things. a bad wheel bearing, a bad u-joint makes many different noises. bad bearings in the rear-end itself. the backing plates directly behind the wheels could be rotting out and crumbling. that is all wheel drive and takes a special fluid in the transfer case. if the correct fluid isn't used it will chatter bad. the special fluid is available from g.m. only and is called "autotrac-fluid".
you may need to have to have it professionally diagnosed to save from replacing a lot of parts that aren't going to fix it. Good Luck..........Scott
