Yes it can be rebuilt but you would need a press and you would need to mic the case for wear, you can buy a repair manual for your truck and it will give you step by step instrucations,

02 grand Cherokee 4.7 545ref tranny 247transfer case if transfer case is bad would it make it seem like the tranny was bad I have no gears tranny rebuilt 8 months ago, it will try to go if u rev throttle...

You will have to have the transmission issues diagnosed

I would not think your question is directly the main issue, as
far a the transfer case goes,but it still can have mechanical
& electrical problems

If you have been using it like that & most people do, then
having been a trans shop owner, you could very well have
ruined yet another unit,way I don't know

I would guess the trans was possibly not updated or built
properly & I have seen them fail in 8 months

Sometimes you find a mistake or problem & in most cases
they are as clean inside as the day you rebuilt it

Today most issues are electronic & good luck there finding
a tech who knows the complete powertrain

You can not just start at the trans or transfer case

You have to diagnose every module in the vehicle
& all systems & fix as you go,even if is just trans related

The cold can effect the valve body until warmed up

Could be it was never taken apart or cleaned

Could be as you said, the shop didn't know how
to take the pump apart or even check for updates
to valves in there that score the pump

99 grand cherokee limited transfer case problem

You would be better off to just find a rebuilt one, they are really not that expensive. Google it, many places rebuild them. They also offer free tech advice just on 4x4 issues.

96 silverado transfer case model 243c, ratio 272

I think you will find that this noise is due to a failed transfer case component, the best thing to do is buy a rebuilt unit from GM or you can locate them online as well.

My ford explorer 1998 won't go in reverse. I have transmission fluid in it.

My 1988 Explorer would not go in reverse either after the trans was just rebuilt about a year before. Turned out it was the transfer case. Unfortunately it cost as much as getting the trans rebuilt. I thought the transfer case was just for the 4 wheel drive but it has something to do with the reverse as well believe it or not. Hope that helps.

When i put my 95 explorer in reverse it makes a grinding noise in transfer case and wont move all other gears fine

automatic or manual transmission? if manual then the first gear fork is bent if automatic then there is trouble in the valve body which means that you have to have the transmission rebuilt

When i get to 55 mph i hear i popping in the front.Ive replaced both cv joints and a wheel bearing,but it didnt help.Iinspected the spider gears but they were fine.I disconnected the front drive shaft now...

Check the front differential for proper spacing inside, also the bearings. Then check the homocinetic joint right behind the front diff. on the drive shaft. If all of them are fine, open the oil screw at the transfer case, drain the oil and check if there are some metal in it. After draining the oil out, use a flat screw driver, insert it into the transfer case (be careful!!) to locate the drive chain. check if there she is very loose ( if you can slide the chain more than 1/2" it need to be replaced). To rule out the transfer case, disconnect the rear drice shaft (U-Joint on rear diff. and then slide them out of the case), disconnect the front drice shaft right on the transfer case (U-Joint), disconnect the shifter and any wiring you find on the case, remove the bolts from the chassie and then remoce the bolts between the case and the auto transmission and slide the case backward till you have it in your hand. Install a new or rebuilt one the same way back, fill it with auto trasmssion fluid as told in the user manual. Do not overfill the case and do not use other fluid as in the user/service manual.

87 samuria tansfercase problem

It doesnt need rebuilding. The shifter sheet that the gear shifter sits on is worn out or not even there which allows the shifter not to operate properly.

You can order a poly one from vendors like Lowrangeoffroad, Trail Tough, Petroworks, and some others.

4 high not working

sounds like the transfer case has gone bad and needs to be rebuilt. if it is a newer style blazer (late 90's or newer) with the push button transfer case it could be the motor that shifts the transfer case is bad or not install right.
