I had the exact same problem with my transfer case. I ended up pulling the transfer case and it turns out that a bearing was worn out that controlled the shifting into four high and four low. After making noise for quite some time, it finally let go and even in rear wheel drive, it couldn't find drive or reverse. Check out the solution I posted on how to pull the transfer case, you should do it before the problem gets as bad as mine did.

Most likely in need of a fluid change in the Transfer case and Diffs. Mine did the same thing.

a noise from a diff are , normally a high frequency harmonic sound while driving is from diff pinion bearings
if you decelerate and you get a noise normally as a low grumble ( low drumm noise )to a frequency noise is again the diff pinion bearings
you can distinguish the noise from power on to deceleration
the noise can be most noticeable with a slight load ( 2 people travelling at a steady speed say 60- 80 klm/hr) as a steady but harmonic pitch variation
the noise varies as the load is transferred from the bearing immediately behind the pinion gear to the bearing immediately behind the drive flange or in your case driven gear from the gear box
it is caused by a slight movement of the pinion which varies the correct mesh with the crown wheel , resulting in the whining sound
sorry but noise sounds are very hard to describe

When i put my truck in 4 w.d it sounds like im peeling out on rocks


Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your transfer case is probably pouched. That grinding noise is the gears grinding up in there. Break out the wallet and roll up your sleeves. If its quiet while driving in 2 more than likely thats it. With the vehicle off and in park, get underneath and turn the shaft by the transfer case, does it feel like it sounds, running on rocks? Thats all those expensive gears turning into shavings.

My 05 Chevy 2500HD is making a grinding noise when decelerating, as in going down a hill. When applying pressure to the accelerator it stops. It sounds like its coming from the rear bottom.


It is the transfer case. It seems to be a big problem with the 2004 and 2005 models. They are not synchronized and bend the forks alot. The noise you hear is the chain rolling off the gear. Mine only did it when I was going over 45 downhill and not on the throttle for a few seconds. Hope this helps...

Whining/grinding noise at deceleration


We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.
