Its not hard to do you need a gasket and seal kit too the hardest part is seperating the case halves . do not place a screwdriver in the case halves to seperate you will cause a leak ! remove the nuts on the yokes first then the case . mark with a scribed line and remove the trans speedo cable assembly set it aside tap and pry the case halves apart pull off the back half of case the front half is where you want everything to stay in place try to keep it standing up so rear case is up then you can lift up the front output shaft the chain and the planetary remove the rest of parts install new seals and reassemble the case uses rtv black sealant instead of gasket

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.

Fluid type in 1985 gmc sierra k2500 4x4 aluminum transfer case


You can use the same ATF as the transmission or a synthetic ATF for GM Transmission. Most guys will use normal ATF and mix Lucas ATF transmission additive to it, to make the fluid last longer. Good luck and hope this helps. There was two types of transfer case available to your truck. NP205 takes 5.1 pints NP208 takes 10.0 pints

4x4 wont engage


First thing to make sure of is to check for a blown fuse. The fuse location is marked 4WD and it should be a 25 amp fuse. If the fuse is bad, the lights on the 4wd console wont light up. If the lights do light up, then you can move to the transfer case. On top of the transfer case, toward the rear of the truck is a switch that has a 2 wire connector. That switch sends power to the front axle actuator when you try to enagage 4wd inside the truck. That could be bad. The switch is threaded into the transfer case and is still available through GM. If the switch is ok and the wiring that attaches to it is ok, then you can move up to the axle. Threaded into the front axle is the front axle actuator. These actuators are prone to failure in older trucks and is very prone to cold weather failure. You can test the actuator by removing it and then WITHOUT the truck running, put the truck into 4wd and then turn the key to the hot position. The plunger inside the actuator will extended outwards. More than likely it will be one of those 3 things. If it still wont engage, you may have a short in one of the wiring harnesses associated with the 4wd system. Also, you may have a damaged transfer case. To check the transfer case, put the truck in 4wd without it running and then crawl underneath and see if you can turn the front shaft by hand. If not....it's good. If you can....then the shifter forks inside the case are worn or damaged. I hope this helps.....start small and work your way up!
