I made a mistake! How bad?

Hey guys... I fudged up today a little bit... Today i let my buddy drive my jeep. (Hes buying one so why not) he was testing the 4wd system and went into 4low.. Now when shifting out of 4low he did it at about 10km/h and the jeep jolted like craZy and made a funny noise...(almost as loud as my heart strings snapping in half-_-) Its no longer making noises and ran completly fine on the way home even tested the 4wd system and all seemed good. i did think i kinda heard something when i pushed the clutch in to coast in first. But i think im being paranoid,, but my question is. What is the likely hood that this may of caused damage to my transfer case?

The only thing I can say is keep testing the 4wd out and keep your ear open for unusual noises. I would think maybe just round the gears a bit???? Others probably would know more though. Good luck.

I tested the 4WD in 4th going 60 and it seemed okay. Diddnt shift though. Diddnt wanna stay too long in 4wd as its dry out. And i have aftermarket tires on. You guys think this could of done any damage?

test it on dirt roads. Youre fine on dry roads as long as its straight roads. But you really need to take it off road putt around on some hills or climbs. On a dirt road you will be fine checking the 4x4 out. Dry pavement not so well.

I would guess its fine. Best bet would be go off road/grass/dirt and put it in and out of 4LO a few times.

In 1990 I used to drive a Humvee at Fort Ord, Hunter Liggett, and some other base. We were a bunch of Infantry guys getting ready for a wheeled mission. We spent weeks training and then a few months on mission.

We were taught to stop for 4LO by the book. We trained at driving 40-50 MPH and shifting to 4HI, then when hitting steep hills at about 10-15 MPH forcing the vehicle to 4LO. If you were soft, the gears would grind. If you let off the gas at 15 MPH, forced it to 4LO, it made a loud sound as it locked and we floored the vehicle. Be beat the heck out the those vehicles and they did fine. One thing we did not do was let the vehicle come to a stop while changing drive modes. The Humvees were heavy, slow, and lacked real power, but we could make it up and over about any hill at a snails pace thanks to a running start in 2WD, shifting to 4HI, then as it bogged down to 15 MPH dropping it into 4LO, where it chugged along just fine. Only issue we had over a few months was one of our 12 Humvee's lost a rear driveshaft.

I would hope a 2007+ Jeep could take a dozen of those shifts with no real issues.

It will be fine, I shift mine while I'm driving all the time. It used to make noises but it doesn't do that quite as much. To be sure I'd test the 4wd system as often as possible, at least once a week on varying types of terrain.

OP: your Jeep should be fine. I'd get a new friend, though.

Good luck,

It's fine. Driving in 4wd on dry non slippary surfaces is worse.

Oh... I got 102mph. Perhaps I missed something in my calculation.

Anyway.. he should be fine at that speed.

Was it 10km/h Canadian, EU, or South America?

Perhaps one day these 3rd world countries will abandon their backwards metric system. I mean 1000 meters in a kilometer? That just sounds silly!

You forgot to carry the six...
Other than that, the math is flawless!

No disrespect to your Buddy but.... "Stupid" is factored into most Engineering so I think you are fine.
Anything that really is going to poke the pooch.... there is a "Block" created.
Example: shifting into "Reverse" while going forward at speed or Marrying a "Member of the Royal Family" - You get "Stopped" before that "Leap of Stupid"

Haha.. abandon the metric system. In the 70's and product standards engineer told me America will be converted to the metric system in 20 years - I guess he was half right.

Now I have twice the tools needed to do the same job.

conspiracy..

It is nuts as every science class in the US, uses the metric system.

I'd say it's pretty much the 51st state.

I think our way is more effective. Sure a bit more room for error and isnt exact or precise but when you go to buy a tire in 31, 33, or 35 you know youre getting a true size. This 265, 285 stuff varies out to be shy of the tire you want. Just my cent worth.
America, no matter what it is, is becoming a follower where we once use to lead. Most car & truck designs on the road today look asian or european more and more. 3rd world country right here.

No measuring system is simpler, easier, logical, and precise than the metric system.
