Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500
It sounds like it is the 4WD engagement actuator on the front axle. I think that year had a confined gas and when a heater element heats the gas (4WD selected) the gas expands and actuates a piston and engages the front axle. I think later years went to an all electric actuator. You can probably read more about it on the net. I know that some aftermarket manual lockup devices were made for these vehicles. I would suspect that. I have no idea what a new one costs. I don't think they are terribly expensive. You may want to try and verify before you buy one, but that would be my guess.
