My 89 XJ makes a ZZZZZZZZ soound when driving. It pops out of gear. I can pull over and use the selector to put it in Park then back to Drive and it is ok until I hit another bump. It will not "pop out" when I am running in 4 LO. I have adjusted the linkage on the T-case but it keeps popping. Not sure if it is a T-case problem or the linkage is worn out. Any suggestions???

Have you adjusted the shifter linkage? Did it start happening after lifting the vehicle?

T-case Tranny woes

Thank you for all your suggestions. I did adjust the linkage by the repair manual. I have not lifted it yet, trying to fix this problem first. I did replace the tranny mount and it seemed to help at first, but then it started happening all the time. I had to drive home in 4LO as that was the only thing it would stay in gear with. I ordered a Novak linkage and hope that will fix it. I am wondering if there is anything wrong with the t-case. It doesent grind gears but makes that sound.
