I don't think thy the linkage is the problem, but I'll try it anyhow. Before I replaced the motor and tranny it was doing the same thing. So we tore apart the transfer case and looked for any damaged gears or anything that looked wrong at all and found nothing. This was two years ago.
We thought that the transmission was bad so I went ahead and replaced the motor and transmission in one shot since the motor was smoking and didn't have much life left.
But after two different transmissions, one that I know for a fact is good, it's obvious that the problem lies within the transfer case. If you know of a place where I can get one at a reasonable price it would be great. Because like I said we already investigated the transfer case on it and unless someone on this forum knows what the problem is in stuck with replacing the whole transfer case.
