Due to slipping clutches in the transfer case, a shudder or rumbling from the center of the vehicle may occur, especially when turning at slow speeds. If the clutches are not too badly worn, changing the fluid will fix this problem. Otherwise, the transfer case will need to be disassembled to change the clutches.

    Just found out the noise I'm hearing is my transfer case going out. Only rebuilt part avail from dealer for $4,100.00 plus labor for $5,000.00. Unbelievable. Car has never been off road or abused in any way.
