02 Durango RT can I drive in awd if I disconnect tcase?
No front driveshaft for over year been
drvn in 4hi now it makes grinding
winding sound won't go. 4Lo works
though and at times I switch it and it
goes in d but jumps out d 3secs starts
worse grind when I hit brakes..,sitting
still.,fluid or gearoil inside tbps
electrical? Code 0455 in Odom
Well I would check the transfer case gears and the main drive shaft the grinding is probloy coming from the transfer case that is were the main gears are check there first
It seems like everything I hear of someone removing a front driveline from an AWD vehicle they wind up with a destroyed transfer case, from what little I can get from other shops is there is a clutch pack in the transfer case that allows for some slippage between the front and rear drives, if the clutch doesn't detect any slippage then over time it locks up and causes all kinds of problems from stripped gears to exploded cases. So judging on that information I would have to say that the transfer case Will need to be at the very least overhauled, or you might be able to find a shop that can make it a straight through case and that will do away completely with the 4 wheel drive altogether. You should not have any fluid in the throttle body position sensor, if you do the only thing it can be is possibly engine oil from a bad PCV valve and the blow by is collecting on the plate and seeping into the sensor.
I have the same exact problem on same model Durango I just got off phone with transmission shop where I had it towed yesterday he said the hub in the tcase!! I still would like to have the tbps checked to see if it's bad he said he didn't do engine work only trannys what an Awhole..I want to put drive shaft back in front but don't know if the tcase is needed for that also
Ok it finally cracked just a little bit of fluid came out dark and milky but no odor of burnt fluid I think it maybe was just low in fluid can I JB weld it
