What Does My Transfer Case Do?

A transfer case is the difference between a two-wheel and four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle. Located behind the transmission, it allows you to adjust the gear ratio from two-wheel to 4WD. The transfer case gears work with the help of the driveshaft to transfer power from the transmission to the front and rear axles.

By creating that balance of power between the axles, the 4WD is set in motion, the wheels’ rotational speed is reduced, and they are synchronized to turn at the same speed. This provides the traction needed to get through rugged terrain.

Seals wear with age, and that can cause oil leaks. If you notice oil leaking or hear grinding of gears when you engage the 4WD, it may be time for service. Stop by our service center at Pat Milliken Ford Inc. and speak with a knowledgeable member of our team. We're here to assist you today!
