i dont know, maybe the motor?, the rig is running good, i was doing 95 this morning and no issues, and still makes the noise when in park. so there's something moving down there , the noise is a lot worse when starting to move, once it changes to 2nd it almost goes away, when i was stoppoing at a light, it like jerked a couple times, and started grinding after that...:confused:

I'm not an expert, but it seems odd that the t case would make noise when stopped. I figure it's something else.

As long as the right fluid, which you said NV146 and the fill amount are correct, I don't see it causing a problem after service.

I'm guessing it's something else?

what do you think may have happened?, i dont have a engine light on, just the service 4wd, maybe they didnt fill it like it should?, maybe they left the plug a little bit open and it drained, i drove it on friday to raleigh, up from greenville(220 miles each way) , and came back yesterday, no issues at all.. it's just so strange , i parked it and it was perfect, i turn it on this morning and !bam! the service 4wd light goes on, i head to work, everything is working fine, i stop at a light and th egrinding noise starts, i think it's the tc or the tranny but it's shifting fine, i get on it and it responds and you can barely hear the noise, and then when i put it in park, it still making it... it stopped when i turned the jeep off.

Seems odd to be the TC if its still making the noise when you are not moving and parked. My TC only had issues when moving slow and tight turns, which turned out to be my TC motor. But noise that seems constant when not moving, is odd. Not to say it can't be the TC motor that just might be acting up, but seems like something else due to the issue not moving. GL and pls keep us posted.

Patchy, had something similar with mine. Does any of the ABS or traction control lights come on? Get a starscan tool that can read the codes that the Diablo scanners can't. Mine felt the same and it was the wheel speed sensor.

update>>>

They called me from the dealership, it's the tc actuator, and it will run me $696 plus tax. At least it's better than a new tc

You mean the Transfercase motor?

I guess, the guy at the dealership said it was the actuator..which is the one that's in charge of applying and /or engaging the tc clutches.
