Selec-Trac Problems

So the selec-trac on the '01 Laredo is acting up:

It won't fully engage unless you shift into it, shut the jeep off and let it sit for a min.

When you shift into either 4part-time or 4full-time, it seems like it doesn't engage all the way...The front pulls horribly to the left, and shakes if you go near 20 m.p.h. If you turn it off after you've put the stick into one of the 4wd positions and start it back up again the 4wd system works perfect. Same story shifting out.

Whats up?

Have you checked the fluid? How are you shifting?

If the fluid has been changed recently and the TC is full, try this trick when shifting in/out of 4wd. Let off the accelerator, shift TC into gear, slide tranny to N, blip the throttle, slide tranny back to drive, blip throttle again. I normally do this between 5 and 30 MPH and can feel the TC lever click once its completed the shift.
