Got a fairly new transfer case. Here's the deal:

I have an automatic transmission...When I shift IN or OUT of 4L while moving (in N or drive) faster than 5 miles per hr. I hear the gears grind! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I have to come to almost a complete stop before I can shift and only then it engages without incident.

What could be wrong?


Nothing is wrong. The gears in the transfer case are sliding gears and have no syncros. You must be at a complete stop before shifting into or out of 4L.
