Re: OT AWD in Nissan Murano
The transfer case acts much the same way as a differential...it allows slippage between front and rear.
It's easy to test....jack up one side so both the front and rear wheels are off the ground....block the other side....
Carefully put it in gear and just take your foot off the brake.....both the front and rear wheels should spin. If only one spins, then yea, it's not working right.
So....what makes her think it's not working? Truth is, it's hard to tell if it's not because of the power sharing mode. It's not going to have that funny feel you get in a jeep when you are locked up in 4lo.
