Is Your 4-Wheel-Drive Gear Grinding?

Regular maintenance on your four-wheel or all-wheel-drive vehicle helps keep it in optimal running condition. One aspect that needs a routine check is the transfer case seal and components. If there’s grinding coming from the transfer case, it could be due to an oil leak. Seals can become brittle and crack over time, allowing for oil to seep out.

The transfer case is located just behind the transmission, and its function is to distribute the road friction evenly between all four wheels, or tires, on your vehicle. It achieves this by gear reduction. Operating at a slower speed provides the necessary traction.
