SOURCE: Unusual noise

Not really a "solution" but this may move you a step closer to one...Check vacuum operated servo blend motors on the heater box. I would disconnect and plug the vacuum supply line to the dash controls (on the engine side of firewall) and drive it for a while. Obviously, if it's cold out you may not want to do this till summer because heat will not work, but it's worth a try, just to get a location on the problem isolated without taking the entire car apart!!

SOURCE: 4x4 wont work in a 97 jeep

The only Solution to this is 1 of 2 Things ! The Shifter Linkage is Off of the Transfer Case 2 The Transfer Case is Shelled out and needs to be Rebuilt. Check underneath on the Transfer case for any Noises when in 4X4 and Check the Linkages. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

SOURCE: Quadra Trac II 4 wheel drive problem

Oil is added to transfer case through a plug usually located about half way up the back of the case.
When making a diagnosis, a good tech relies upon previous experience matching that to known symptoms, then upon teardown to verify his ideas. A good working knowledge is essential so the tech can picture in his mind what is happening inside the unit.(i once knew an old tech who could sit in the shop office and make a correct diagnosis as another tech drove a vehicle into the shop) That's rare, but there are good people out there! Your coupler may have to be removed, but that largely depends upon what the shop sees and feels.
Good luck

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive doesnt work.

Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.

My 2005 Jeep Liberty is stuck in gear and trying to get the four wheel drive front end drive shaft off but won't spin to get bolts in so forth any ideas how to get it out

Assuming this is an automatic transmission and that I have understood the question it sounds like you\'re stuck in 4 wheel drive? Are you able to still drive it or your stuck in 4 wheel and the transfer case is frozen or is it that you just can\'t get it out of 4 wheel! If you remove the U-boat between the transfer case and the front difference can you get the transfer case to spit? If not it would sound like either your front different is frozen (in which case you will want to replacing the grease / oil in your front different. If you disconnect the rear drive shift from transfer case and you can\'t get any movement from the transfer case then your transfer case has issues. This to can have the transfer case drained and oil replaced. Aside from. that, I woukd consider taking it to a shop as there could be multiple reasons for this and DYI\'ing could lead to more harm than good. With out seeing the vehicle and going by your brief question, I\'m finding it a little tough coming g up with any solution since the question is very vague. Having said that that\'s the best I can come up with. More and in depth description may be more helpful. I wish I could help more. Just though of one last question, does this Jeep have automatic, or manual front differential locks. Could the diff locks be stuck. Sorry I haven\'t been much more help but I am trying with what little info I have of the problem. Best of luck and for myself and others it would make it easier to help you resolve the problem. I wish you the best!

What does the actuator on the transfer case do?

The actuator shifts between 2 and 4 wheel drive, If you do not use 4wd then you can safely not repair. I do suggest you have the actuator unplugged

4 wheel drive won't disengage

There can be a linkage adjustment problem. Also you may need to remove transfer case housing to check the spring inside. There is a chain inside. That one should be checked for its tension. If those are ok you may need your transfer case get serviced.
