I finished 11 runs Friday night, I drove back from San Diego to Oceanside on the highway.. .. I did the speed limit no problems art all with my car. Saturday my friend takes my car to pick up his gf from the airport in LA. He comes back drops her off, then heads to the stables, no problem with my car at all. But when he leaves the stables the cars info center says service 4wd. I freak out, I'm google searching it. I go to the cherokeesrt8.com forum and everyone is saying they had to replace the whole transfer case. I'm not looking forward to spending 2400 for a new one. I talk to a fiend and he tells me change the transfer case fluid. I get it changed and that service 4wd turns off . However today it comes back on and my fiend says its shifting hard and feels like the front is not catching traction. Now I'm worried, I take it to get front and rear differential fluids, transmission fluid, and limited slip flits replaced. I leave and now she runs perfect smooth and great. Sorry its a long story, but yeah that scared me.
