    Trans Problem 99 GMC Sierra 2500 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    One of my guys made the mistake of shifting the trans into 4wd while the truck was moving and in Drive. Now the front end is vibrating when traveling about 25 mph or more, sounds like something is grinding. It is OK when truck is switched out of 4 wd into 2 wd. What could this be? It is a 99 GMC 2500 Sierra. What might it cost?

    Could potentially be a transfer case problem, it's difficult to diagnose something like this without actually seeing the vehicle.

    Shifting on the fly should not cause any problems. Check wheel balance wieghts.
     
  5. Check U joints

    Check front U joints, that truck should be able to shift on the fly! Is it the old body style or the New body style! My 1999 old body style, i can throw into 4x4 on the highway!
