The Basics Behind Transfer Case Services at Jim Boe Service

A transfer case is one of the serviceable components in a four wheel drive system. Present in both full-time and part-time 4WD vehicles, the transfer case operates with the help of gears and, in many modern cars, a chain. Usually, a transfer case indirectly connects to the transmission’s rear. The transmission sends power to the transfer case which in turn sends the power, or torque, to the front and rear drive shafts. Because of the transfer case, the wheels can spin at the same speed, and the vehicle is able to enter or maintain its four wheel drive. Often, part-time 4WD vehicles use a transfer case with an extra set of gears that allows for the creation of extra torque through the selection of a high or low gear range. This can make it easier to climb steep hills and mountains. Transfer cases also contain a lubricant that keeps gears running correctly. Because they are a significant part of the 4WD system, it is important that drivers maintain them.

Why Should You Have Transfer Case Services Performed at Jim Boe Service?

Adhering to proper service intervals for transfer case maintenance can help extend the life of your transfer case and 4WD system. Being aware of the symptoms of a faulty transfer case can also help with determining the proper time to have your transfer case serviced. 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. Our staff can look over your transfer case and replace any bad fluid. We’ll also review the case, its gears, and if present, the chain. When you’re ready, let us help you prevent unnecessary damage to your 4WD system with our transfer case service.
