Transfer case maintence

How often do you have to change the fluid. Not sure on what transfer case I have. My truck is a manual, 1995, 4x4.

Re: Transfer case maintence

Your transfer case has Delco III fluid in it, I believe a Chilton manual instructs you to change your fluid at first oil change, which obviously has come and gone for you. Then every 60,000 miles. I would maintain the same with your tranny.

Re: Transfer case maintence

I remember reading some place that it needs to be changed every 30k. Same with the tranny fluid every 30k. Also applies to the rear diff., and the front diff.

Re: Transfer case maintence

<font face="Comic Sans MS">For fluids, I'd recommend Mobil 1 synthetic. Seems to work very good, for me at least, in my older T case and differentials. If you're where it gets cold, I'd especially recommend synthetic. Flows way better than dinosaur juice in the cold. May notice a little bit of leaking though if the seals are older. I didn't see a problem on mine and mine are from 1985.</font>

Re: Transfer case maintence

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Dinosaur juice is just the way I tend to refer to conventional base (fossil fuel based) products, like oil and gear lube. I sometimes write things that I know because I say, but then forget that everybody isn't inside my mind to know what I'm thinking (which is typically a good thing that they can't see those items [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) </font>
