Hi everyone. this is my first post I've usually been able to find someone else post helpful but i couldn't find anything that exactly described my problem so here it goes.
i got a 97 zj 5.2 w/ 249 t-case. i want to say it has something to do with the transfer case or transmission but I'm not 100% positive. only when i take off from a dead stop its real jumpy/vibrates until I'm half way through 2nd gear. both axle are good checked for metal shards, clean gear oil, play in pinion's and checked all my u-joint on the drive shafts and everything is good.
how would i know if the transfer case is going out? what kind of symptoms would i have? i plan on swapping for a 231 once this t-case goes out as well. but i want to figure out this problem before anything.
if anyone can help that would be great. I'm trying to get her going as soon as possible. I'm missing out on too many trips as it is.
Replaced the motor mounts didn't make any difference. we put her on jacks to check for any bad noises coming from the tranny or t-case and there was a winding noise coming from the tranny. Weird thing was when we dropped it and took it for a test drive. The original problem didn't exist anymore but now when in park and reverse it feels like its in gear but doesn't move and in neutrial it drives. I'm pretty sure that means the tranny is going out
