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.

2011, ML-350 Diesel. Some sort of vibration in the powertrain when turning and going uphill at low speed. Seems to always occur in 2nd or 3rd gear between 1800 and 2100 RPM, and feels like a hesitation or shuddering.
