Hello yesterday as i was driving home i pulled into my apt and my tahoe front end locked up as if the brakes were catching but it was harder than the brakes. I gave it gas and it just slid so i put it in park and then reverse and it rolled back a little and i put it back into drive. While i started moving i noticed the car had a difficult time moving so i slowed down and it relesed and starting acting normal again. This moring it did the same thing but this time i heard a loud pop like metal on metal and it sounded like my 4 wheel drive disengaged. If this was the case why is my 4 wheel drive doing this and could it really lock up my front end that hard to keep my tires from turning. And how would i troubleshoot this issue.
My car has 187 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
