4 wheel drive noise

Asked by Feb 10, 2018 at 10:06 AM about the 2003 Jeep Liberty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Put my 2003 jeep liberty in 4 wheel drive and
it makes a horrible sound like something is
dragging and grinding underneath the car.
What could this be?

1 Answer


could be the transfer case if it only makes the noise in 4WD. If all the time, check the exhaust heat shields to see if they are loose and hanging down dragging along the road.
