car   Transfer Case problem 1
Failure Date: 03/02/2005

I noticed that the transfer case was leaking fliud. The truck was going in for a recall in the steerinng pump. So I asked the dealer to check where the leak was coming from. The dealer called me and told me that the transfer case had a small hole in it and it would be $1,200. 00 to fix it. I brought the truck home and looked at the transfer case myself. The transfer case did have a small hole in it. I was going to put some jb weld on the hole for the time being. Until I could afford to have the transfer case fixed. When I touched the hole with my finger I noticed that the transfer case had really weak medal in that area like when it was made it was not made right. I have been talking to gm about the problem they are tring to decide if the transfer case failure is there fault or if the truck has been beat on. I have only used the 4wd one time in the last 9 months that I have owned the truck the people that had it before me took really good care of the truck. I am really upset that Chevrolet's do not last more then 5 years.

Service f. W. D. Light comes on , dealer says nothing is wrong but the f. W. D. Dose not work sometimes. I am afraid that it will go into f. W. D. Low when I am driving at a moderate speed causing transmission problems and possible injury.

Front wheels will not pull in 4wd caused by premature wear and slipping of clutch discs in front transfer case. Wearing on the clutch discs even continues while in 2wd. Soulution is an expensive overhaul of the front transfer case.

car   Transfer Case problem 6
Failure Date: 12/01/2001

The drive train shudders excessively when switched into auto four wheel drive. I noticed this prior to the end of the warranty period but just forgot about taking it in for warranty service as I just stopped using the auto four wheel feature. It started at or about 30,000 miles, the truck has 66,000 now and I am sure the dealer won't listen to me, just my wallet. I'll put this to the test next week on my vacation.
