I've seen pipe dope for water pipes, etc, but not sure if this is the same kind of stuff. Drop the Gas tank, then remove all sensors. There are 2 plugs located on the rear of the transfer case. Noise while in Reverse is where the transfer case meets with the transmission. Double check with another source before adding fluid. Yea, dumb question on my part regarding low fluid. Yes you can use the blue Autotrack fluid in all transfer cases.
So it isn't totally outrageous. Yes, I actually did make sure I could remove the fill plug first!! I would take it to my mechanic, but the truck is out of the county right now and its not feasible to do that yet. Pulled over and looked under rig for leak. Can anyone confirm that my front diff doesn't take 3 quarts? What case do I have and what happens if you use the wrong lube? This will tell you if you have a gear problem. I'll explain the easy way even though I first tried the hard way. The tag provides the transfer case model number, the serial number, a build date, and a low range reduction ratio. Jan 12, 2010 I'm not 100% sure if this is the problem.
Climbed under car and had wife place in reverse to help locate exact placement of noise. Of course this all depends on where your located in the world. The front was a different story. Nearly broke and about broken. Trying to also understand why. Rebuild or replace with used.
My gut tells me I need a new tranny. The transfer case shift control module flashes each indicator lamp after a shift has been requested and will continue to flash until the transfer case shift control module can complete the shift. Does anybody know if low transfer case fluid can do that? The water pump on a 1999 Chevy suburban can be removed once you remove the radiator fan. Can i just ask for Transfer Case fluid at the dealer and theyll give me the right one? Does the pushbuttons include a round button that says 'Auto 4wd'? Don't use anything other then autotrac 2 blue stuff from the stealership. I need to keep my eyes pasted more towards the tranny than the transfer case itself at this time? Thx You can crawl under the truck and check out the round tag on the transfer case to see what model it is to be sure. It does seem ironic that this all of a sudden went out right after they worked on it. I tried to move the car back and the engine sounded great but the car had no movement.
Just that the case itself is not an Autotrac. If you have a manual shift transfer case, I think it calls for Dextron Tranny fluid, but check you owners manual, it will tell in there. Remove the Fill Hole plug first, then place your oil catcher in position, and remove the drain hole plug. Please help this decently experianced do-it-yourselfer. The trick is to leave the belt on and tight.
No ill effects or leaking yet, and it's been ~ 3500 miles. No hesitation, smooth upon acceleration. A little confused perhapse but I have all day to learn. So on your '99, I'd guess red like mine for the factory fluid initially. I was pulling about 1k in the trailer behind and on flat pavement. Does the pushbuttons include a round button that says 'Auto 4wd'? New u-joints front and back.
The rear came from the factory with synthetic and is required. Do you have a the stick on the floor or do you have a push button switch to engage 4x4? Tomorrow I am going to do the transfer case. Is there any ballpark estimate on a rebuild? Good luck and keep me posted. Pulled over and looked under rig for leak. Is the Service 4x4 light on? Now when I shift into reverse, this sound appears immediatly. Synthetic 75w-90 in the rear and regular ole' 80w-90 in the front. You can even get QuadraSteer, which would be awesome.
These are just a few things that could be wrong with your transmission that you have described. That is why the reservoir seems loose but still will not come out. Does this info sound correct? Hopped back in and started to pull forward in which this air raid like whinning noise picked up immediatly upon movement. Have three days to figure this out. Noise while in Reverse is where the transfer case meets with the transmission. The guy behind the counter did not think I needed to have it programed but suggested I ask the service manager.
