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.
