Front end noise

It's like a gear whine and only happens in 4wd when speeding up or slowing down, never in 2wd. It's not constant. I checked the fluid level when I first noticed the noise and it was empty, filled it up and it still makes the noise. 4wd works great but the noise has to go. Any suggestions?

It's on my 95 explorer.

sorry but low fluid in the transfercase has caused damage to the gears. only way to get rid of noise is to replace the gear assy, (happend to mine when the dif, went low over heated the gears after filling worked ok but had that whine noise. had to replace the gears)
