I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee sport with a 4.0 litre engine. 80K miles. I very rarely drive it in 4-wheel mode, but I occasionally do so on a dirt road near my house, never over 25 mph. Recently, I hear a growl or low whine from the transmission--sounds like it's from the front of the car. It stops when the car stops, then goes up and down in pitch as the car shifts. Also, the dash light that used to come on and say "part time" no longer comes on when I shift into 4-wheel high. I've never had it in 4-wheel low.
Any idea what this might be? And how serious? The tranmission doesn't slip and the car runs fine. There's just this new noise. The car had new fluid around 65K miles.
Thanks for any advice and info. Jeff023
