Wow, its been a long while since I've been around! I suppose that can be good or bad, right?
Anyway, I'm having some trouble with the transfer case in my '97 Laredo.
While moving, shift into 4wd-Full Time and the transfer case seems to work as it should. However, when I come to a stop, it feels like power is removed from the drivetrain (as if you had shifted to N or P from D with the brakes on) and then the transfer case begins making a grinding sound. The Jeep will not move until you shift back to 2wd; the grinding then disappears. Everything works flawlessly in 2wd and seems to work in 4wd-FT while moving.
I know that everything worked just a couple of months ago when I was testing it out prior to winter.
Ideas? My initial feeling is that the linkage has come out of proper adjustment.
Thanks and happy holidays!
