Sounds like your front axle is trying to engage but does not engage fully.check your vacuum going to the t-case switch and then if that is ok check your vacuum at the front axle actuator.It is located under the battery tray.

SOURCE: 1998 gmc jimmy you here

Hello Bj.

This is a common issue with the Jimmy's in that year.
Because you can hear the shift motor it likely works.
The problem is likely at the front differential. There is a vacuum actuator that has a cable that pulls on a lever which engages a clutch inside the differential tube.

This vacuum originates at the engine, goes to the transfer case. On the transfer case the is a vacuum switch which then directs the vacuum to the vacuum motor when 4x4 is called for.
You will need to check for vacuum at this motor which is located on the right front engine compartment down low. Tricky to get to but not impossible. Follow the cable from the right side of the differential if you can't locate it.

If no vacuum, trace it back to the leak. If no leak, the vacuum switch on the transfer case may be bad.
If vacuum is there, which I suspect it is, replace the vacuum motor and cable assembly.
There you are, if you have further questions, please ask me here.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 GMC Jimmy with a popping noise at the front right wheel

Could be one of a dozen or so things, such as ball joint, tie rod end, shock strut, loose caliper, cracked rotor, loose wheel, loose fender/bumper bolts, others also. Have it checked at front end shop if you don't know how.

97 jimmy wont go back to 2 wheel drive


Check everything in that right front driveline. Could have a problem that when the four wheel drive puts some tension on it, it stops making noise.

Ok I just bought a 1998 gmc Jimmy and this is my problem when your driving down the road it has a pretty bad vibration but when you turn to the left (only) it goes away any ideas on what that could be?...


Sounds like a belt is seperated in the front left tire...your local tire store can inspect this for free...your next check would be alignment...tough chuck holes can cause mis-alignment and unecessary tire wear...Hope this helps....(Front left wheel bearing does this too, but a slight grinding noise is also present)
