Hi the problem could be caused by the transfer clutches in the rear of the transmission being burnt and not applying,the CEL wouldn't come on for this problem you would sometimes get a flashing AT TEMP light at start up most times signifying a problem with the transfer clutch duty solenoid this solenoid is responsible for applying fluid pressure to the transfer clutches depending on wheel slippage.The back half of the transmission should come apart for close inspection of this system.
