I drained the transfer case oil in my 99 Chevy 4x4 Silverado auto trans 5.3 engine 1/2 ton truck
There were 2 compartments one with the drain and fill plugs to the rear of the transfer case
and another drain in the front bottom of the transfer case ---- where is the fill point for this one and what oil do I use
Your help is greatly appreciated
I've always installed Michelin LTX M/S on my trucks after the stocks wore out and sometimes much earlier.
However, while visiting tirerack looking for tires other than the Michelins I stumbled upon these and picked up a set after reading their survey results which were stellar.
Firestone Destination A/T
After 5K miles, they are everything that their survey results say they are.
there were no codes / messages logged in the computer when it was checked.
If so, yes you can order the part, install it and it will work with no programming needed. However, sorry to say it is on national back order. Guess it's a popular thing to do.
There may be another source that has it. Try checking here:
The back of the insteerment cluster has a main power supply plug that supplies power to the inst. cluster as I recall the power to 4wd is independent from the inst.cluster power supply. This makes me think it could be a main ground short.
There are a number of ground straps from the engine to the frame all tying back to the battery ground.
You need a volt meter
The cluster is easily removed
1. Trim bezel
2. Cluster screws
Sorry if that sound like a lot of unknowns to follow-up on, the fact is that there is not a simple answer with out checking a number of possibilities.
I just wanted to say that my Nice 2004 Chevy Crewcab 4x4 is falling apart...Well it's supposed to be a 4x4... That doesn't work anymore.. Push Button Lights are On but when I switch it to 4 hi or Auto or 4 Lo the lights just blink on the switches and nothing happens.. Any Ideas? "need 4wd winter is almost here....

My lesson learned, do more homework before buying.
*There is a Growl/Grind coming from the front driver side as far as I can tell.
*Noise is present during deceleration 30mph and under.
*Noise can not be heard during acceleration.
*Noise exists while coasting in neutral as well.
*There are no visible leaks anywhere?
*Noise is amplified while turning.
*Noise goes away after shifting back into 2WD.
*There seems to be no issues shifting into and out of 4WD Hi or Lo.
*Tire wear is consistent and even.
*Front inside brake pads are not engaging rotor on either front wheel.
*Changed out front differential gear oil. Drained a purplish, thick oil w/ what looked like metal flakes/sparkles. Magnetic drain plug had a few small splinters. (<1/8")
Refilled w/ Valvoline 80W90 Synthetic Gear Oil - Noise still there.
*Local performance shop seems to think it might be a wheel/hub bearing assy. If a bearing, would the noise be consistent during accel and decel in 2WD or 4WD? So I have my doubts about this being the issue.
*Does the front differential disengage during decel or is it engaged all the time in 4WD?
*If it does disengage, what controls this? Front Axle Shift Motor?
*What do I look for to tell if it is a CV Joint?
*Any suggsestions or help is appreciated!!!
The cost, $175 timing chain, 10 cluch disc apx $3.00 each, Anitrobic gaskit sealer $17.00, 3 quarts Gm Trans fluid $24, 3 shaft seal $15 apx ? can't remember the exact price. and 8 hrs labor, first time rebuilding the transfer case.
One thing I have not check out, it appeared to me there was a adjusting screw for the cluch plates. Only two of the clutch plates were fried the other eight still looked good. The point being I think maybe I could have adjusted it and it would have been good for another 20-40k miles.
I put apx 80-100 hrs a year on it plowing every year so it has held up good.
Shop for customer service and support. I would pass on giving GM one cent.
When you say carrier bearing your refering bearing that are in the front differental housing?
