A device that is part of your vehicle’s drivetrain design, a transfer case will split power from your engine to be directed over to the front and rear axles of your automobile when you have a four wheel drive model. This transfer case can be found directly behind your transmission, with the front and rear drive shafts connected to it. It’s physical design typically includes a series of gears / a chain drive system.

A transfer case has the potential to change between a two wheel drive function and four wheel drive high range and low range. If service is needed to your transfer case, you may notice that your vehicle is making a loud grinding sound when it is changing gears. Your vehicle may also be having trouble switching between those gears properly. It’s important that you seek maintenance to prevent damage to your transmission or axles.
