First, make sure the gear lube in the transfer case is clean and full. Also, is it a grinding noise you hear or could it be gear noise? The gears in the transfer case can be noisy


No it is a grinding noise and I haven't thought about checking the gear oil level about how much dose it hold gear oil that is

Exact amount I don't know. However, there is a drain plug and a fill plug on the transfercase facing the rear of the vehicle. Remove the fill plug and fill it until the oil starts coming back out. The full line is the bottom of the threads on the fill plug.

Let me know what you find.


Ok thanks

WAITING ON HER.I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'D TRUST "HER" WITH YOUR BABY!

THE BEST INFO YOU CAN HAVE!

--IF YOUR YEAR IS NOT LISTED---USE THE YEAR ABOVE OR BELOW. THEY DID NOT DUPLICATE A MANUAL IF THE SAME INFO WAS IN ANOTHER SAME MODEL

SCROLL DOWN TO "ON-LINE MANUAL" AND HAVE AT IT!

. OR IS IT HERS?

DID YA GET IT ALL FIGGERED OUT?

MY DAUGHTER CLAIMS "WILLY" AS HER'S. SHE HELPED WITH RESTORATION WHILE 3 AND 4 YEARS OLD (PICS 1 AND 2)

DURING THE SUMMERS, WHILE STAYING WITH ME, SHE LEARNED HOW TO DRIVE HIM 100%, BY AGE 10. RATHER THAN USE THE STARTER, SHE'D RATHER "SHOW OUT" AND HAND CRANK HIM (PIC 3)

HAD TO GET A GLAMOUR SHOT, WHILE WHILE TEACHING HER HOW TO NAVIGATE WITH MAP AND COMPASS. ALSO AT AGE 10 (PIC 4)

NOW WHEN SHE AND MY GRANDSON VISIT, SHE AGE 23 AND HE AGE 3, CRUISE AROUND DURING CHRISTMAS OF 2010 (PIC 5)

"WILLY" IS NOW 67. BEING THAT THE NUMBER I CHOSE TO PUT ON THE HOOD IS HER BIRTHDAY, THAT'S HER MAIN "CLAIM" OF HIM BEING HER'S!

"PUP-PUP" MY DACHSHUND LIKE TO RIDE IN 'IM TOO! (PIC 6)
