What is a Transfer Case?

Your four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle’s transfer case, situated behind the transmission, supplies the means to change the drive of your vehicle. It may consist of a chain or gears, but its function is to switch your SUV or truck out of the two-wheel drive and into 4WD. The driveshafts on the front and rear axles slow the wheels’ speed so that they rotate at the same time. It creates greater force through traction.

If you have noticed symptoms, such as a 4WD lever that pops out of gear, the transfer case may be leaking oil. Seals tend to wear out over time and use. Another common sign that your case has lost oil is grinding gears.
