MRP is on a distinguished road
Default Major breakdown!!!! Transfer case, tranny, drive shaft, rear diff.....

1. Driving on the highway today and I hear a slight whine coming from the rear axle. So I decide to drive to the dealership right away (good idea,eh?).

2. Get off the high way and the noise gets louder, the pitch of the noise deceases with speed. The dealership is only 1-2 miles away.

3. Notice the traction control lights are blinking....hmmmm. Contiune on....

4. BANG POW, WOBBLE WOBBLE, SKKKKKKKIIIIIIIDDDDDD!!!!! Dealership 150ft away.

5. I can see fluid all over the road, and I cringe as I look under my baby.
a. drive shaft broken at the rear-end pumpkin. Looks like a spline that connects to the shaft is spun out - diff fluid everywhere.
b. Transfer case crack littlerly in half, fluid is everywhere.
c. Transmission (where it meets the transfer case) cracked and bent.

6. Tow truck, dealership, now in a 4 door sedan, blah!!!


That's it in a nut shell - I'll keep "us" posted as I get info.

Hope they don't tell you "They all do that" or "sorry, we can't duplicate the problem". LOL

So far all they have said was... "holy shit, damn, what the..." ect. I'm looking forward to hearing from the service department tomorrow.

If I had to guess I think it stemmed from two issues...the rear locking differential (seemed like it locked up today) and the tranny. It was starting to slip over the past couple weeks (which I planned to address next week). It would rev up to about 6k and they grab a gear which I think was stressing the entire drive train.

Ouch how may miles/kms you have on it ? These stories send shivers up my spine. Hope you get her all fixed up and they can find the reason. Best of luck getting out of that four door sedan.
