an was told knock sensor an o2 sensors need
replacement as well as previous owner bored out
both cats an put back on idk if that could add to
thelose of power an fuel incre uased use. But now
she's been parked one morning going to work I
started her up like I do every morning sat fir a
moment then put truck into reverse an nothing
then i went threw all gears an nothing happend. Sat
fir a second tried it again and when I put in revers
this time I mashed gas an it jerked me hard as crap
an same in drive maybe heard a lil humming noise
and vibration when I got on the road it seems to
have quit well I got off the interstate an I heard a
loud chain noise it sounded just like a big metal
chain dragging on the pavement an then she would
vary go at all when I mashed gas basically Fred
Flintstones it to parking spot an then she wouldn't
even lock into park or any gear for that matter any
more well I had it towed an when I went out to test
it again it was locking in yo all gears like normal an
seemed fine just for a second one the road then I

And your question is??? Check the fluid level in the transfer case.

I'm not to sure ever how to check fluid in t case and my question is where do u think my problem is an what do I need to replace to fix the loud chain grinding noise my trucks making my transfer case,transmission,or rear end?

Get somebody to check the transfer case fluid. Actually the fluid levels should be checked in the transmission and the differentials also. If it is very low and has metal chunks in it you may have found the issue. Some transfer cases have a drive "chain" in them.

    Transmission or transfer case (not sure which) makes a clicking/very light grinding noise. It's fine through 1st gear then it starts making it very noticeably in 2nd, little in 3rd. Not quite sure ...
