    If your t-case is in neutral the truck will not move, the power ends at the trans. output shaft. Whats your issue maybe we can help....

    Yep, the truck will go nowhere fast. All the power will stop at the t-case since it is in nutural.

    What's the problem with your truck? We might be able to help.

    See Ya,

    Ok that sounds right. I have a few symptoms -1st when I accelerate to say 30mph & ease off the gas just to the point before coasting theres a growl if i accelerate it goes away and if i let off totally it goes away, theres that intermediate spot where you can make it growl constantly. -2nd going around left hand corners almost @ any speed it slips out of gear not all the time & shifts back in . Ive had a rebuilt tranny put in by a reputable shop w/ a warranty they tell me its the transfer case. Does that sound right? Also my transfer case can be put into neutral but the truck will still drive in drive. Your help is much appreciated

    Your trans. slips out of gear, I'm assuming. If thats the case your t-case has nothing to do with it. Now the t-case neutral thing, that sounds like a shifter problem. your 205 case if your sitting in the drivers seat all the way toward you is 4hi, one click forward is 2hi, one more is neutral, and farthest forward is 4lo. I tell you this not for any other reason than refernce. I have seen detent/shift fork problems on these cases (not all the way in gear) so you need to make sure that is your shift pattern, and the shifter itself is moving freely. Also make sure your t-case isn't overfull, and your trans. isn't under filled.

    I dont know if its the trans. slipping out of gear according to the shop its in drive when the shifter is in drive.Could the transfer case be making this happen? Ive inspected the transfer case, linkage, changed the fluid properly & shifted the exact pattern you describe to see if it makes a difference & it doesnt.

    well the symtoms you described are strange....just a shot in the dark, but you may want to check your engine mounts and for that matter your trans./t-case mounts. Also the levels in the trans./t-case, I'm interested in finding out if the t-case is overfill. If you just changed the fiuid the level should be the same. So take the fill plug out and see if fluid comes out, also an easy way to check the mounts is to power brake just put the truck in drive and keep the brake on, give it some gas...be gental yet firm, and see if the engine tipps up, if it moves alot you have a broken mount. Do it in reverse also, rember be gental, and don't do it too long or you will need a new tranny!
