Transfer Case Service


Transfer Case

Transfer Case Inspection, Fluid Exchange & Repairs

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.

How to Tell When Your Transfer Case Needs Service

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.

There are a number of signs that will alert you to problems, including:

  • The transmission will start to have problems shifting gears — especially when shifting down from higher gears to lower ones. This happens in both manual and automatic transmissions.
  • You will start to hear metal grinding sounds as the lubrication fails and the metal parts start to rub against each other.
  • The vehicle will not stay in four-wheel drive (this is seen in part-time four-wheel-drive Nissans) and will pop into two-wheel drive unexpectedly. This typically happens when parts inside the transfer case break.
  • Reddish fluid puddles form under the transfer case while it is parked.

If you notice any of these signs, you need to immediately take your Nissan to Rolling Hills Nissan in St. Joseph to have it checked before the problems get worse.
