My 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 extended cab V8 1/2 Ton 4WD with Floor Mounted 4wd shifter, will sometimes stick and not disengage from 4wd back to 2wd. Also makes noise.

    Could possibly be just needing service. Have had a few with hard shifting and sticking with minor noises and tried servicing with fresh fluid and conditioner, seemed to help. Hope that's all you need.

    Improper shift sequence from high to low range, see owners manual for procedure! DON'T push the lockout button, just shift the lever from 2 hi to 4 hi and back, anything else you have to be stopped, engine off!
