Lately my T/C has been having "disconnecting" issues.
I live in a rural area, gravel driveway, and pull onto a 55 mph road.
I always use 4HI to pull out to get traction in order to pull into the road.
Once on my way, I shift into 2HI. I call tell the T/C is still in 4 because of the sound and feel ... after about a mile or so, you feel/hear a slight thud and its free.
The lever shifts smooth, and detents feel good.
Although, one day I was using 4LO to move a heavy truck into the shop, and again It was stuck in 4, and could barely drive it in circles in the parking lot (both axles are open ??) This time , I could not budge the lever....
This is the second T/C.
The first one ran dry, and the chain ground a hole in the case.
The Jeep has 192K miles on it and runs like a scalded dog ... excellent running engine and tranny.
Now that 'I' own it, I am always checking the fluid level.
SHIFT LINKAGE ADJUSTMENT
(1) Shift transfer case into 4L position. (make sure your shifter is fully in the 4L position)
(2) Raise vehicle.
(3) Loosen lock bolt on adjusting trunnion (Fig.
(4) Be sure linkage rod slides freely in trunnion.
Clean rod and apply spray lube if necessary.
(5) Verify that transfer case range lever is fully
engaged in 4L position. (you can do this under the vehicle at the transfer case)
(6) Tighten adjusting trunnion lock bolt.
(7) Lower vehicle
