The transfer case transfers power to both the front and rear axles. For example, if you have a rear-wheel drive SUV or pickup truck, power goes to the rear wheels until you need 4-wheel drive. That’s when the transfer case steps in and moves some of the power to the front wheels as well.
Adhering to your vehicle’s proper maintenance schedule for transfer case service can help extend the life of your transfer case and 4WD system. We carry both factory and aftermarket fluids to flush and service your transfer case. Being aware of the symptoms of a faulty transfer case can also help with determining the proper time to have it repaired. Warning signs include grinding noise, difficulty shifting into 4WD, and leaking lubrication. In a part-time 4WD vehicle, a faulty transfer case can prevent the vehicle from engaging or disengaging from four wheel drive. In addition, contaminated lubricant can harm the gears inside the transfer case. If you think you are in need of transfer case repair, please call us for an appointment.
