my 91' xj with a aw4 and 242 transfer case does not like to shift in and out of 4x4. it usually will shift into 4hi without any problems but then it takes a bit of messing around to get it into full time or 4lo. and getting it back into 2wd is really tough, i usually have to drive back and forth, shifting in to nuetral, drive, and reverse a bunch of times and shifting the transfer case back and forth and it finally goes into 2wd. are there any common problems with these transfer cases, or anything that you could suggest checking? thanks

Has it ever been used in 4Lo? Most transfer cases will be stiff if they have never been used for 4Lo. It will loosen up the more you use it.

It should shift betwtween 2wd and 4PT easily. Shifting into the other modes can be a PITA. I usually place the tranny into reverse then neutral to take any load off the t-case. After that, with the Jeep not moving it should shift easily.
