the clutches in the transfercase should slip so to say on purpose in auto to apply power when needed it still will turn the drive shaft and lock the front diff axle

usually what you are experiencing is dirty transfercase fluid which will keep the clutches from slipping in and out as they should and a transmission fluid change with the correct fluid will do the trick

you think that a transfer case service should take care of it? it also makes quite a bit of noise when in 4WD. will the service this help as well?

it will if the fluid is very dirty or low

keep in mind if the fluid is very low changing it might NOT correct all the noise you are hearing as it was run with low fluid in it and there could be some bearing damage causing this noise

but a service usually helps alot
