I can only drive in 4 wheel drive?

Asked by Oct 02, 2013 at 04:04 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Chevy Z-71.  When I am driving, I have to take off in 4 wheel drive.  The truck
allows me to switch to 2 wheel drive while I am on the move.  However, when I come to a
stop, while in 2 wheel drive, and try to take off again, I get a loud whine and have to end up  
putting the truck back into 4 wheel drive to get going.  Anyone have an idea what this
could be?

That sounds like the transfer case has a problem with the upper cluster gear inside the case, fix it quick before it shatters and ruins your transfer case completely.
