Okay I sort of did something stupid by mistake. Now I'm just trying to see how big of a mistake it was and how I can fix it.
This morning I was trying to make it into my garage in 2wd, my driveway is fairly steep and snow/ice covered. The Taco wasn’t climbing any farther and I was so close to being in the garage. Impatiently, I switch to 4Hi while I was still giving it gas to make it up the driveway.
That's when I heard a really Loud Clunk. I really thought I broke something. Maybe I did. Do you guys happen to know what that Loud Clunk noise might be? I heard a clunk every now and then shifting from 2hi to 4hi but this time it was much louder.
The 4wd indicator kept blinking for several seconds. I made it into the garage, and it was still blinking. So I decided to make sure it still works. I reversed out of the garage and finally the 4wd indicator stays on. I drove back up the driveway and everything seemed to be working fine.
Later in the day, I put it in 4hi on an icy road to see everything was still functioning. 4wd comes on just fine and I don't notice any fluid leaking, grinding noises, etc. I switched it back and forth multiple times just to make sure.
So the question is: should I be worried? And if so, what else should I check?
