Caring for the Transfer Case in a Four-Wheel-Drive or AWD Vehicle

If you own a four-wheel-drive or an all-wheel drive vehicle, you probably know that the power transfers between the axles when needed for optimum maneuvering in difficult driving conditions. This transfer of power is accomplished by the transfer case.

A transfer case is a gearbox component of the drivetrain in four-wheel-drive and AWD vehicles. In four-wheel drive vehicles it transfers power from the transmission to the front and rear axles, and in AWD vehicles the transfer case moves power between the axles, according to which wheels are receiving the most traction.

Fluid in the transfer case keeps the gears cool and allows them to run smoothly. The additives in the fluid eventually break down, and fluid may even leak from a seal in the case. If it is time to change the fluid, or you notice signs of possible problems with the transfer case, bring your vehicle to our service center at Langlade Ford to have it serviced by our dedicated professionals.
