Transfer case I think. in reverse bound up and breaking

Customer Question
Transfer case I think...

Transfer case I think. in reverse bound up and breaking noise. still drove normal until I got onto a steep slick road. Then found out no more all wheel drive.. transfer case or front differential?

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

Excellent . well maintained 160,000 no abuse

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2009 chevy express 1500 all wheel drive

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Express 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not done any thing yet. need to verify if it is the transfer case or front differential. If its the transfer case, I'll change it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all the info that I think is relevent

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

If you have lost power to the front wheels, then get it on a rack to run it in the air to see what is spinning and what is not. I believe you may find the concern to be at the knuckle or a drive axle. It would be hard to break the differential or the driveshaft or the transfer case.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
