All About Transfer Cases

All wheel drive vehicles have a gearbox dedicated to distributing power between the front and rear axles. This gearbox is known as a transfer case, and it shifts power depending on which set of wheels is getting better traction. Transfer cases are filled with fluid that keeps the gears clean and lubricated.

Every so often, that fluid needs to be changed. Manufacturers set the timetables for when this should be done. It can vary from car to car, so check your owner's manual for details. In rare cases, the transfer case may spring a leak, and the fluid will need to be changed between appointments. Signs that the transfer case needs to be checked include vibrations, grinding noises and oil leaks.

If you have questions about the transfer case on your four-wheel drive vehicle, stop by Lakeshore Honda today. Our qualified technicians are always happy to take a look under the hood.
