Q: Noise coming from transfer case. Not coming out of 4 wheel drive quadra drive II.

asked by on

My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee is not coming out of 4 wheel drive and after investing, I discovered a noise coming out of my transfer case. I changed the fluid but still has noise. Could the motor be the culprit? A new transfer case is expensive and I am looking for anything else it could be. It is a NV245 transfer case. Thanks in advance.

My car has 165000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. We will be happy to assist you. The issue your vehicle is having will be best pinpointed by technician. I suggest that you have a technician perform an inspection of your four wheel drive system to help find the cause of your noise. Normally when a transfer case makes noise it means that there’s internal damage and the transfer case must be replaced. A technician with a stethoscope will be able to trace the noise and where it is found to be loudest will be the part at fault. A transfer case for your vehicle should not be over 200 dollars if you can find it locally. A few months ago a lady came into my shop with a 2006 Jeep Liberty that had a bad transmission and transfer case. We were able to find her a transmission and transfer case from LKQ Pick Your Part for about $400. Keep in mind that you can find a technician to inspect your 4WD system here https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/loud-noises-when-car-is-put-in-gear-inspection
