Understanding the Transfer Case of Your Vehicle

Do you know what the transfer case does in your 4WD or AWD vehicle? The transfer case plays the crucial role of distributing engine power between a vehicle’s axles and wheels. With proper maintenance, it’s easy to keep your transfer case running smoothly.

In a 4WD or AWD vehicle, the power from the engine passes through the transfer case, which distributes the power to the wheels and axles. The transfer case contains gears that require lubricating fluid to function properly. The fluid decomposes over time and needs replacement. Old lubricating fluid or low fluid levels can damage the gears, creating an expensive repair.

A professional service person can inspect your transfer case, looking for leaks and old fluid that needs replacement. The vehicle manufacturer recommends regular fluid replacement intervals. Schedule an appointment with the qualified service people at Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT of Eureka, CA to have your transfer case inspected today.
