LEAK AT TRANSFER CASE COMING FROM DIFFERENTIAL PINION SEAL OR THE TRANSFER CASE SEAL LEAKING.YOU CAN GO ON LINE TO ON LINE AUTO REPAIR MANUAL ON AUTO DATA MANUALS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND TRANSFER CASE DIAGRAM BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY TO USE SITE FOR 3 TO 6 MONTHS.
It is the transfer case. It seems to be a big problem with the 2004 and 2005 models. They are not synchronized and bend the forks alot. The noise you hear is the chain rolling off the gear. Mine only did it when I was going over 45 downhill and not on the throttle for a few seconds. Hope this helps...
Sudden grinding noise with no prior warning * Primarily in 2nd
gear, behavior in reverse may be abnormal; sunshell is fractured.
R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.
* Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient
lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R
sooner rather than later.
* Either a torrington bearing or a planetary bearing is on its way out.
Trans will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death. Cheaper to rebuild
now (saves further damage to hard parts), but requires R&R. It is
drivable until it breaks.
the parking brake rusts and makes a rubbing sound. it is inside of the rear disks. you have to remove the caliper then the caliper bracket. pull the disk off and inspect the parking brake. very common problemas most automatic trucks no one ever uses the parking brake
Unless someone has added fluid lately, check for a small fitting like piece sticking up on top of case that is a vent for case, it may be plugged. Can try air pressure to unclog it, but may have to take it out & clean with solvent.
I have found that when you are going to engauge 4x4 high, it is best to only be going about 3 miles an hour. Not faster, not stopped. It likes some movement to help it mesh. I've had perfect shifts since I started this. Hope it helps. Wade.
the problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor at one of the front wheels. retrieving a code in the abs system could pinpoint which wheel it is. i believe the wheel speed sensor is part of the bolt on front wheel bearing assy. if you plan on doing this yourself and are mechanically inclined. you will need an a/c volt meter to check sensors. let me know if i can assist further.
