No. The transfer case takes Dexron/Mercon 3. What was installed instead, for fluid? If motor oil or gear oil was used instead. That would not cause a clunk. It would cause a loss of fuel economy. When vehicles get old and the mileage ads up. Parts loosen up and/or wear out. Clunking in the drive train could be related to the transfer case but could also be related to the drive shaft or the rear drive axle. Worn or bad splines, U-joints (rusted, loose, or seizing), worn ring and pinion is possibe too. If I can be more help just let me know. The more information and details that you can give, the better. Thank you.

more than likely the transfer case chain is loose, have the slack checked, there is a gage they use to check this

double check u-joints before suspecting internal problem with transfeer case. Coupling between transmission and transfeer case could be worn, as well as rear slip joint on tail shaft. If not rebuilding the transfeer case yourself, get plenty of refferences before hiring some one to overhall transfercase. InMrFixIt

I have a 95chevy silverado 4x4 goes into reverse but makes a Klunck sound then moves as I give gas to go in reverse it stops like the e brake is on as i give it alot of gas it pops again and goes n


Sounds like a transfer case or differential issue. Have a listen to where the clunk originates from while some one puts it in reverse. Could be either or causing the problem. I would guess at the transfer case causing this issue. May possibly need a rebuild/replacement

I have a clunknoise from my transfer case how do i fix it


most of the time a clunk from under the vehicle when shifting gears (whether going forward or reverse) is a u-joint. check them at both ends of the drive shaft. (possibly 1 in the middle, not familiar with your particular truck)

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.

Transfer case noise


your u joints are gone.it is common on gm trucks,as they are a sealed unit and the needle bearings rust .there are replacement u joints available that have grease nipples on them. there should be very little play,less than 1/8 inch.

Rear transfer case seal leaking...how do i replace it myself?


Rear output shaft? you should only have one transfer case :) Ok so put the ebrake on. Put the truck in neutral. Matchmark the yoke to the tcase. remove the bolts that hold on the ujoint. This should drop the driveshaft from the tcase. Use an axle socket to remove the nut holding on the yoke. Tap the yoke off with a soft face mallet. pull out the felt ring. Using a seal puller remove the seal. tap in a new one very carefully. reinstall in reverse order. ensure you torque the nut to the required torque aling with the ujoint bolts.
