2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 issue
My 2003 dodge ram 1500 has a np241 transfer
case it has manual shift in the floor. It will shift into
4hi but it will not emgage and makes clunky noises
like its trying but will not. It will not shift into 4lo at
all. Any ideas?
Time for an overhaul, but do it quick before some internal piece comes apart and ruins the whole unit.
So you dont think it could be the actuator or maybe something simple?
If the noises are coming from the transfer case then no its not an actuator, if the noise is coming from the front differential then it could be the actuator.
Or the differential ring and pinion are shot.
I would get all 4 wheels off the ground and secured and see if manually turning the front driveline produces any noise in the front differential with the transmission and transfer case in neutral, if no noise there then you can bet it's in the transfer case.
I will try that. Thank you, ill let you know how it goes.
