    Glossgary,Thanks for your time. Yes they removed tranny from vechicle and replaced 3 or 4 seals to stop transmission fluid leak into transfer case.Well it stopped it but when they put it back in, it was in 4wd and would not come out.So this transmission shop took it out of car again and could not find the cause.So they put it back in and told me i needed new transmission.They say they did nothing wrong but it worked just fine before they worked on it.They will not make good on it. 4wd indicator light on dash works when i hit toggle switch but it does't go out of 4wd. I ended up removing rear haft of drive shaft so rear wheels are'nt engaged.Still isn't that hard on the transmission to run it like that? Need your help!

Need your help......

    It turned out to be the vacuum line on modulator valve.The rubber hose on the end had wore out and collapsed.Replaced it and it runs perfect now.
