4×4 Transfer Case Replacement in Hamilton

What does the transfer case do?Transfer case repairs Hamilton

The transfer case is an important component the drivetrain of four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Its purpose is to direct power from the transmission to all four wheels via the front and rear axles. Different driving modes and conditions will affect the way the transfer case works. For example, if your car is set to two-wheel drive mode, the transfer case will only send power to two wheels.

There are many different types of all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) configurations. Each one of these configurations will require its own unique transfer case. For this reason, repairing a faulty transfer case can often be problematic. Transfer cases require lubricant to function properly, and if the transfer case is not lubricated properly, excessive wear may occur. For this reason, it is important to look out for leaks and replace the fluid every 50,000 km.

Symptoms of a faulty transfer case:

Noise when transfer case is engaged – A worn or damaged transfer case can produce loud grinding noises. This is usually caused by a failing component, or a lack of lubricant. If it has been a long time since the transfer case fluid has been replaced, we recommend that you check it.
Causes of loud noises when turning

Fluid leaks – Sometimes, the transfer case can leak, causing oil puddles to appear under your car. As the transfer case leaks, it loses its ability to lubricate itself, resulting in overheating occurring.

Vehicle shifts by itself – Your car may jump in and out of four-wheel drive when it is engaged. This happens due to the transfer case struggling to provide all four wheels with energy.
