The Importance of Transfer Case Maintenance

Today, many drivers on the road are in a four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle. An easily overlooked maintenance item on these vehicles is the transfer case.

In simplest terms, the transfer case takes the power from the engine and distributes it to both front and rear axles when necessary in four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles. Inside the transfer case, there are many working parts that take the signals from your vehicle’s control to send the power from the engine to the correct wheels.

And, like most mechanical parts of your vehicle, the transfer case requires a special lubricating fluid to operate. This fluid in the transfer case also needs to be changed at regularly scheduled times to prevent damage to your vehicle. Your vehicle’s manual will tell you the recommended time-frame for a change.

The friendly staff at DCH Tustin Acura in Tustin, CA are well-trained to handle your transfer case needs, so stop on by for a quick check and, if needed, maintenance.
