Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My truck sounds like its scrubbing when I'm driving it. I have heard that sound before when I engage the 4wd and thats what it reminds me of. Is the 4wd engaged even though it indicates it is in 2wd or is the front end in need of greasing or something along that line?

Hi, raise one of the front tires of the ground and see if it you can turn it, if you can then its not in 4WD. If the truck has over 100,000 miles then the wheel bearings may be bad.

What is causing my 4wd to engage on its own when im going down the highway and how do i fix it


Sounds like you may have bumped something inside your 4wd relay setting or shifted the 4wd assembly. Either way it sounds like a trip to the transmission mechanic

I was towing a heavy load with my 94 4runner. i put it in 4wd, heard a strange moan sound, very quickly took it out of 4wd. now i have no reverse


Not sure if the 4runner requires you to stop before engaging 4wd or not. Need some more information on your vehicle, auto/manual, speed when you engaged 4wd.

Heard clunking from front end when 4 wheel was engaged and now no 4 wheel drive


if your truck has cvaxels which is only if it is independent front end your cv axel is bad. if you have straight axel it sounds like you have a bad universil joint its right behind your hub where the brake system is check both sides

I have a 96 F150 4x4. I heard a noise that


4 wheel drive trucks make this sound alot im guessing its a manual shift so i would saw that the meshing is more of a grinding instead so i would have the transmission rebuilt to fix the problem or just see if the rings inside the trans. is missing the tooths on it :)

4wd issues


Sounds like either a transmission or forward differential issue. The Durango was known for trans issues, as well as 4x4 components. A stupid question, but do you have the same size tires on all 4 corners? If not, DO NOT engage the 4 wheel drive. If you do, hold on to you wallet. Repairing the driveline on the Durango isn't cheap, and isn't fun.

I have Ford Ranger Supercab 2001. The 4wd does not engage.. clicking sounds from under the dash board. Please help :)


When you turn the dial to 4 wheel drive it controls a solonoid unit that then controls the electric motor that shifts the trasfer case to 4X4. The clicking sound that you are hearing is probobly the solonoid unit (4x4 control unit) engaging or trying to engage the trasfer case motor. From what I,ve heard the solonoid unit is located behind the plastic panel that is under the glove box and before the passenger side door. Moisture can build up in that area and ruin the solinoid unit over time. Check any fuses that have any thing to do with the 4x4. If the solonoid unit or fuses is not the problem, I would check the wireing to the electric transfer case motor and the motor itself. Good luck and God bless!

High pitch whine


sounds like your one of your hubs on the front axle are staying engaged when you turn off the 4wd. By reselecting the 4wd high and back to 2wd hi it is causing it to release. Get it looked at these can get expensive if damage is done.

Loud clicking noise when 4wd is engaged on left wheel when turnin


Check your cv (constant velocity joint) , It may have a big clearance which is the source of the noise when turning left or right and when 4wd is engage. Juts like front wheel drive cars, if the cv joint is with clearance it will tend to sound in the left or right turns. It is not exactly clicking sound , nmore like knocking sound , low in pitch, but not heavy.
