Are You Having Problems With Your Transfer Case?
Your transfer case is an important component for your vehicle because without it your car or truck would not be able to have four wheel drive. There are a number of different issues that can come up in a 4×4 transfer case but this can easily be avoided by getting your vehicle checked regularly. If you’re noticing a strange noise coming from your car or truck when driving at certain speeds or shifting gears then there could be something wrong with your transfer case. Hearing noises coming from the front of your car in cold weather could be another potential sign that it needs more lubrication. Although it is often overlooked it’s important to get your transfer case fluid checked every time you get an oil change.
The way your car’s transfer case works is that it takes power from the transmission and directs it to both ends of your car, or axles, through two separate drive shafts. Two wheel drive vehicles do not need transfer cases since the drive shaft comes straight from the transmission. You can locate the transfer case on the rear of the transmission where it gets its power from the engine. Once the power comes through the engine to the transmission, it goes through the transfer case to the front and rear wheels.
There are a number of different parts that make up a transfer case meaning a repair could be anything from a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. You may be able to find a used transfer case at a lower price but each make and model has different variations and it may be hard to find a transfer case specific to your vehicle.
