I shift into 4 low or high and the tranny works good except there is no light on dash and it dosent lock in, and I was wondering if there is a fuse that locks in the transfer case
BOUGHT TRUCK WITH 41K MILES, DRIVEN 2K, POOR GAS MILEAGE 9-10MPG. CHANGED USUAL SUSPECTS -PLUGS,WIRES,CAP,FILTER,PCV,IGNITIONCOIL. NO ENGINE CODES,FUEL PRESSURE GOOD, ENGINE PURRS, HAS GOOD POWER, GAS MILEAGE SAME WHETHER LOCAL OR HIGHWAY, NO GAS LEAKS OR SMELLS
I HAVE RUN OUT OF IDEAS????
The truck makes a gring noise when under a load. Sounds like iy may be coming from the transfer case because tranny shifts through all gears just fine but if you accelerate up hill or at take off to hard it grinds.

NEED MORE ANSWERS/ THE ANSWER THAT I GOT TO MY QUESTION WAS ALREADY ADDRESSED AND IT IS NOT THE PROBLEM; BUT, THANX ANYWAYS, NICE TRY.

Truck runs fine at idle - when you put it under load it will not exceed over 20mph then truck runs rough. NO ENGINE LIGHTS HAVE APPEARED OR FLICKERED AND NO MISFIRES, OR CODES.

What could be causing this problem?

What kind of repair parts are needed to correct this problem?

What would the cost for replacement parts be without labor?

Where would I be able to purchase these parts?
turn the truck to the right and then try to come back to the left and it sticks, you have to jerk through the sticking to come back to the left. When I looked under the truck there was no obvious problems.
I was driving down the freeway and heard a loud noise from the truck. From that moment on my Brake and ABS light have been lit on the dash display. I am still able to brake, but it feels as if the ABS is not working. The fuses have been checked and seem to be working. What problem are these illuminated lights telling me to fix?
truck has 102k on it, doggy & lithargic always and to the extreme when pulling trailer(empty or loaded). hard pulling a hill even without trailer and knocks. backfired through intake(throttle body?) half dozen times coming up a hill the other day and almost died, thought it was going to let me sit. had an engine misfire(code 304) did plugs, wires, cap, rotor about 2 months ago. help! have friends with same year 5.2 and they scream. someone said maybe intake leaking? front o2 sensor(s)?
