the problem started while driving with a heavy load and towing. It sounded like the sound double at one with a big EERR. I pulled over, stopped, started again and it was gone and did not return till 500 miles later and then became more and consistent.
I found that if I engaged the 4wd auto button, the sound would vanish immediately, though it would eventually come back.
We had a mechanic tell us our transfer case was bad and took off the front drive shaft and no problem happen for the rest of our 3k mile journey.
I took it in and was informed the Tran Case was bad and had it replaced.
Before I got it home, I noticed a vibration in the truck and took it back. I got sent to a dealership and got put through the ringer with 2 months nothing getting resolved and lots of money. Sent back to the first guy to replace the t case again and here I am still having the problem.
The grind has a few stages now and comes randomly or sometimes when I hit a bump. It can be subtle up to very loud, to the point it feels like there is resistance in my forward motion.
I also sometimes hear a high pinging when I am slowing, like metal bouncing on spinning metal?
All this vanishes instantly when engaged into 4 auto or the front drive shaft is removed.
The dealer said they put ears under and the sound was in the transfer case?
I am really ready for some real answers, thanks.
have the same problem?
