My button is marked Auto 4wd and that is where the trouble starts. As
to the clutch pack, as I said, they replaced the entire ft
differential. And the dealer is the one that is saying there is
nothing wrong with it. I think the clutch pack is too tight but they
don't see it my way.
Chuck, yeh that is the same button. There are a few things that you
may want to look at. First check the fluid in your transfer case. It
should be blue in color. Uses blue fluid Autotrak II. If black or
burnt smelling could of fried when front diff went out. If red then
has wrong fluid in it. If you have not done yet you can try changing
the fluid and see if that helps. Takes 2 quarts. Fluid has special
friction motifiers for the clutch to work properly. Uusally you get
more of shudder when turning if fluid bad.
Another is, have you ever changed your fluid in your locking rear
diff. If you look in the owners manual if was suppose to be changed.
Again uses friction modifiers to let your locking diff slip when
And then another is that you can ask the dealer if they put synthetic
(sp) in your front diff. If you live in a real cold climate normal
diff fluid is too thick and your clutch pack maybe trying to overcome
the fluid. You could have that changed if see if works.
If still problem then tell dealer to hook up Tech 2 and drive and see
how the clutch pack is operating.
