TRANSFER CASE REPAIR & 4-WHEEL & AWD REPAIR
TOP MECHANICS, BUFFALO NY SPECIALIZE IN TRANSFER CASE, 4x4 & AWD SERVICING & REPAIR
If you have 4-wheel drive (4x4) or all wheel drive (AWD), your transfer case is responsible for providing power evenly across all four wheels. Depending on the vehicle model, there may be a shift lever or button on the dashboard to engage this feature and utilize it in various driving conditions - like rain/snowy roads where extra traction is needed! If your car has an automatic system for 4WD engagement, then its transfer case will work behind the scenes (no button or shift lever to manually change) to keep cruise control smooth no matter what the terrain.
SIGNS YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE YOUR TRANSFER CASE
The transfers case receives power form the transmission and sends it to the front and rear axles. This used to be done through gears, but most transfer cases today are chain driven and have the ability to break down or wear out.
For older model vehicles, transfer case failure is indicated by not being able to shift between drive modes. Current model vehicles may see warning lights for: transfer case, traction control and even anti-lock braking systems. All vehicle transfer cases will make the same noises when they fail. This can include grinding, thumping or rattling. You may even experience a reduction in power.
CAN YOU DRIVE WITH A TRANSFER CASE
A transfer case failure can be disastrous for a vehicle, so any strange noises should not be ignored. If the noise is ignored and becomes worse over time, it's likely that a transfer case repair won't suffice - replacement may be your only option. Taking care of potential problems as soon as possible could end up saving you costly repairs down the road.
TRANSFER CASE MAINTENANCE
With proper maintenance, the transfer case in your vehicle will run smooth and efficiently. Maintaining your transfer case means periodically draining the fluid and replacing with fresh fluid – as well as checking for any damage or leaks. Transfer case fluid is vital to better performance, reliability and the functioning of your vehicle - the fluid cools down internal parts like gears, chains, bearings & more. Over time additives in the fluid wear out which stops them from adequately protecting these components against corrosion. Contamination from metal shavings and clutch material will also build up if left unchecked.
Check your vehicle operation manual to determine when you should check your transfer case fluid or call the experts at North Buffalo Continental Transmission.
