'98 ZJ 5.9 limited...

In park, at idle... an odd, semi-rattle, semi-"coffee percolating" noise that is transmitted through the Quadratrac 4wd selector.

It seems to drive fine, and the noise disappears when it's in gear.

Any suggestions? I'm towing a U-Haul trailer 800 miles in 10 days and I really can't afford any surprises.

Thanks -

B

try pressing slightly to the left, right, up, or down and see if the sound goes away. if so, yep - lube it up!

I was experiencing the same noise and I was just wondering where the shift linkage is located so I can lube it up, I couldn't seem to find anything about it on wjjeeps.com so I thought I would see if anyone knew here, thanks in advance.
