2001 xterra transfer case issue... I think.
Ok, I looked but have not found this issue in this forum... When I've been parked with engine off and then start up and begin driving, I get what sound like gears grinding. What I've discovered that corrects the problem, (at least till next time) is I shift the transfer case into 4x4 and out again as I drive off. The noise goes away. This to me says it's slipping partly out of gear. I've looked through a Chilton's manual but have not found anything, nothing about the transfer case at all. Has anyone had similar problems and maybe know the fix?
