Vehicle jerks just before stopping + 4x4 mode problem

I have a 2007 2.0l 4x4 Sportage. Just recently the car has developed a problem where when sowing to a stop just before the vehicle comes to a rest it jolts or jerks. I can't quite tell where the problem is coming from. I have now discovered that if I switch to 4x4 mode the problem disappears, but, in 4x4 mode there is another intermittent problem whereby when moving slowly the car does not want to move. Almost like there is not enough power getting to the wheels. I haven't tested this extensively. Presumably the 2 problems are interrelated. I took the car in to my nearest dealership a week or so back and they had no idea. That was just before I discovered the problem (sort of) disappears in 4x4 mode. Kia wanted to book the car in for diagnostics, but I did not have time to do so on that day. I also have an independent mechanic I use who said he would look at the car next week (Monday 6 June). He said it sounds like the transfer casing but isn't sure.

Any ideas?

The vehicle should never be driven in 4X4 unless on soft ground, what you describe is "drive line wind up"..

Hi Philip

I do not normally drive in 4x4 mode on the road, however, I was testing whether or not the vehicle displayed the same jolt when stopping whilst in 4x4 mode. So the problem I experienced in 4x4 mode over a short distance on tar/asphalt was a result of drive line wind up and is in no way related to the jolting/jerking the car has been displaying just before it comes to a complete stop?

No ideas regarding the main problem of the jolting the vehicle displays?
