The Transfer Case is a special gear box found in four-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles. It sends drive power from the engine to the front and rear axles. It all-wheel-drive vehicles, the transfer case helps to shift power from one axle to another, depending upon traction conditions. The fluid in the transfer case helps to keep its gears cool and functioning smoothly. Replacing this fluid at appropriate intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage caused by contaminated and/or broken-down lubricant.
What is involved in servicing my transfer case?
A special fluid is used to lubricate, cool and clean the gears in the transfer case. The old transfer case fluid is removed and replaced with new fluid that conforms to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
