A transfer case is used on four-wheel and all-drive Nissan vehicles. It redistributes the power coming from the transmissionto the front and back axles in order for power to go to all four wheels. This makes the wheels turn at the same time when needed as you drive around St. Joseph, Missouri.
The most common transfer case is those used with part-time 4 wheel drive vehicles. These are the ones you can shift from two-wheel to four-wheel drive with a flick of a button. There are also full-time and active four-wheel-drive transfer cases in use. The full-time transfer cases always transfer power to both axles while the active transfer cases work automatically to transfer power to both axles depending on the driving conditions.
One of the biggest concerns is if the transfer case fluid leaks through the output shaft. In time, the seal around the output shaft wears down and erodes. As the fluid leaks out, heat friction builds up inside the transfer case and causes the parts inside of it to prematurely fail.
