2009 xt forester grinding noise when engaging clutch and stalling

Are all 4 tires and wheels the same size??? (will bind the driveline up)

You could have a bad differential or transfer case.

Jack up all 4 wheels, spin one rear wheel with it in gear, the other should spin in the opposite direction, do the same for the front. If they spin OK, take it out of gear, now spin BOTH rear wheels, if they won't, you might have a bad transfer case.

4 wheel drive will not disengage on 1987 suzuki

Transfer case bind-up is a phenomenon that can occur if a 4WD vehicle is driven on dry pavement in 4WD. The vehicle begins to slow as if the brakes are being applied and the transfer case lever may bind. The condition is caused by the front and rear wheels turning at different speeds because of unequal tire pressures or turning. The transfer case inner gears and components absorb the unequal rate of wheel rotation and begin to bind until the vehicle and transfer case lever become immobile. To relieve this situation, place the transmission in neutral, and jack up each end of the vehicle, one at a time, and allow the wheels to spin freely. Be sure to chock the wheels that are not raised to secure the vehicle from rolling in either direction. It may be necessary to rock the wheels back and forth when they are raised to unload the bound mechanisms in the transfer case. This procedure will allow all driveline pressures to be relieved and the vehicle can now be operated normally.

2001 ford excursion 4x4 troubleshooting

the transfer case shifter linkage may be loose or binding. Check the shift fork for signs of cracks or wear.
Damaged internal gears or viscous coupler prevent the transfer case from shifting into "4-low" or "4-high" drives.
and in evry 15000 miles need to change oil.

Bad grinding noise that actually binds up the vehicle so it won't go. Sound like brakes but have already replaced brakes, wheel bearings, front axle arms, new tires, and checked the gear, the awd light,...

The problem is likely the transfer case has locked up, the question is do you need it to continue to be an AWD vehicle? If not a simple solution is to remove the driveshaft from the transfer case to the front differential case. Takes maybe 15-20 minutes and there are no leakage issues by doing so. The vehicle will now be a rear-wheel only drive one. I recently did this to our own 2003 model and as the car stays in the south, there is no need for the AWD. The car performs as expected and that binding problem is gone.

My front transfer case on my 1997 Ram 1500 is

If you've been 4X4 driving a lot it could be that your gears are binding up . Meaning . . if you've ever had your vehicle locked in 4 and decided to hit pavement without unlocking, ( even if it was only a short distance, ie: a block or to), your gears have a bind on them which in time will really cause major problems. Starting with being hard to get into and out of 4WD and grinding noises. there are a few other things it could be instead but starting with this no cost attempt to finding out, I suggest you try it. You might be suprised. Put the truck in neutral . Jack up the front and rear of the truck and secure withjack stands. the wheels should give up what bind there is at that point.

1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4 wheel drive

I'm not absolutely sure on the tire size for the jeep itself, but I think they are 225/65/R15's. Not absolutely sure.

As for the noise, from your explanation, it sounds like the transfer case is under a heavy bind. Take it off of the road in some grass or dirt and then move it forward a few feet then simply hit reverse. Don't move much maybe an inch and it may release the bind. Once you get the bind off the transfer case, it should slip out of 4wd, unless there is damage in the case/shifter itself.

When operating four wheel drives, with tires of different sizes it causes extreme stress on the gearing in the transfer case. Larger tires don't turn the axles as much as smaller tires. So, this causes stress in the driveline as the front is actually turning slower then the rear. In turn, this will put so much pressure on the gears that it could cause damage and the shifting mechanism will not work correctly to pull it out of 4wd engagement.

Try those ideas, and see if you can get it out of 4WD. Definitely put four tires on the jeep that are all the same size. This will keep you from having excessive stress on the transfer case and gearing therein.

I hope this helps out buddy.
