Transfer Case Service

Transfer Case Maintenance and Service for Your Toyota Vehicle

With a Toyota vehicle, transfer case service can mean repairing, rebuilding, or replacing the transfer case. Ideally, it refers to routine maintenance, which is to drain and inspect the transfer case fluid and replace it with fresh new oil. The transfer case does exactly what the name implies, it transfers power between the front and rear axles. Only a vehicle with all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive whether electronic or manual has a transfer case. Routine service isn’t very complicated for a trained technician who has the proper tools in their shop and understands the needs of Toyota vehicles. Still, it does require a bit more knowledge than the typical driver is going to have.

Reasons a Transfer Case Might Need Maintenance

The transfer case requires fluid exchange at regular intervals according to the schedule outlined in the owner’s manual, and that is needed regardless of how often the four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive feature is used. Even though off-road driving is, for some people, the purpose of the four-wheel-drive vehicle, off-roading can be rough on a truck even if it was designed for that purpose. The fact is, like any other part of the undercarriage, if the transfer case is jar by rocks or other rough terrains it can be damaged. It’s important to have the damage evaluated and repaired as quickly as possible in such a case.

What Happens if the Transfer Case Isn’t Properly Maintained

Suppose the transfer case isn’t serviced at the proper intervals. In that case, the oil can break down or become contaminated, which will cause a leak to form and damage the internal moving parts which actually engage or disengage the axles. In some cases that will cause the vehicle to simply lose four-wheel drive capability and just be a rear-wheel drive. In other cases, the vehicle might get stuck in four-wheel mode resulting in horrible gas mileage and the inability to reach highway speeds. In the worst case, the transfer case might get stuck in a neutral setting, meaning the vehicle will have to be towed to the service station for repairs.
