Four wheel drive systems operate with the help of a transfer case, a type of gearbox that is usually located behind the transmission. The vehicle needs the correct amount of torque for the driver. The transfer casing preforms this purpose. In 4WD and all wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case uses gears (and often a chain if the vehicle is a modern make or model) to help the vehicle enter into or maintain four wheel drive. All transfer cases also use a lubricant to keep the gears operating correctly. Because transfer cases play a key role in the performance of a 4WD vehicle, we advise our customers to watch over and repair their respective transfer cases when needed. Depending on the vehicle, recommended transfer case inspection intervals will vary. As such, drivers should look to their owner’s manuals and vehicle manufacturers for recommendations.
If you are experiencing problems with your transfer case, bring your 4WD vehicle into our shop and allow our service staff to have a look.
