1995 Grand Cherokee
Default 1995 grand cherokee 4x4/transfer case issue

Hey guys! Just bought my first Jeep!! Its a 1995 Grand Cherokee Limited, white with gold trim and gold trimmed snowflake wheels (my favorite color combo). it has the 5.2L V8 which runs strong. got it for $2000. It has the 249 transfer case (quadra-trac, ugh), which works fine, but I think theres a problem with the linkage. You can shift it into 4lo and it will engage, but when you try to shift back into 4 full time, it wont engage, it shifts into neutral and gets stuck there. you have to crawl underneath and manually move the lever on the t-case. does the linkage just need to be adjusted and tightened? is there some kind of bushings that wear out?

When shifting back into 4hi, stop the vehicle and put the transmission in neutral, then it should shift into 4hi with no problem.

Yeah, sounds like a linkage issue.

Ok I THINK I found the problem. I went underneath and checked it out today. On the little lever/fulcrum piece where the rod from the shifter and the rod to the t-case connect to, is it supposed to pop into that plate bolted to the side of the tranny? Mine is loose and moves side to side about 1/2". I will go get a picture to show the pieces I'm talking about.
