Transfer Case Service

What is a transfer case? image of a car being serviced - auto repair service in Bedford PA

Most drivers don’t know much about transfer cases; however, if you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you’ve got one. This component is what ensures that you have power available for both the front and rear axles while you are driving around in the Bedford PA area.

For example, if you have a rear-wheel drive SUV, power will only go to the rear wheels until you need 4-wheel drive. That’s when the transfer case steps in and transfers some of the power to the front wheels as well. You might use a shift lever to go into 4-wheel drive, or it could be a button on the dash or it might even go into 4-wheel drive automatically, depending on your vehicle.

Why does my transfer case need serviced when it seems to be working great?

Transfer case fluid cools and lubricates the gears, chains, bearings, shafts and other parts for your vehicle. Over time, the additives in the fluid wear out, add to that the bits of metal and clutch material wear off and contaminate the fluid and you find that it doesn’t protect very well. There isn’t a filter in the transfer case, so if you allow the contamination to remain for too long, it’ll further accelerate wear. The transfer case is serviced at Town Hill Auto Service by periodically draining the fluid and replacing it with fresh fluid. Our technicians also check for leaks and damage.

How often should I get my fluid replaced?

Your owner’s manual may not have a recommended interval for when you should change your transfer case fluid – so ask your service advisor at Town Hill Auto Service in Bedford PA. There are several things that affect how often you should change the fluid, so let them know how often you use 4-wheel drive, if you drive in wet environments such as places where you cross streams or drive through mud and snow. That kind of stuff really shortens the drain interval.
