Perhaps one of the easiest ways to understand just what is at stake when it comes to your transfer case is to understand what it does. Because the transfer case is directly connected to your transmission, it is important to keep both of these systems in excellent condition.
Essentially, the transfer case is what ensures that your front and rear axles are spinning together. Especially when towing a load, it is not difficult to understand why this is so important. The interesting thing is that despite the importance of this component it rarely gets the attention it deserves.
There are two ways that the transfer case can be built; the most common is with a chain connecting the gears between axles, and the other achieves the transference using gears only. No matter how your vehicle gets the job done, the most important thing to remember in caring for your transfer case is to avoid overheating.
Especially with a chain driven transfer case, an overheat can be the high road to experiencing serious issues. Because a chain can actually stretch when subjected to high temperature, keeping the proper levels of fluid in the transfer case should be your fundamental concern to keeping it healthy.
In most cases, replacing the fluid in your transfer case every 50 thousand miles is the best way to make sure that it remains in excellent condition. Keeping a sharp eye out for leaks is another way to make sure you get the most life from your transfer case. Because the lubricant it uses is more viscous than engine oil, even a small leak can spell serious trouble. This is why transfer case leak repairs should be conducted as quickly as possible.

Accurate Automotive twice found problems I'd been dealing with for 2+ years that several other shops couldn't find and charged a minimal fee to do so. I highly recommend them.Maureen Blindu
Accurate Automotive is my new best friend! Diagnosed a warranty issue on my Honda HRV and saved me $2200 over the dealership repair. Lee followed up to make sure the dealership was handling the issue. Great service and integrity. Happy to have found such an honest and reliable mechanic.Rebecca S.
Lee who owns Accurate Automotive is very knowledgeable, personable and service is definitely his #1 Priority. If it weren't for Lee I wouldn't have gotten started on the restoration of my 1973 Corvette which has been extensive. A complete Overhaul and Rebuild that has brought my Hot Rod back to Life. I will always recommend Accurate Automotive to others. They're the Best!Patrick Donovan

If you're looking for an honest and fair auto repair shop Accurate is the place. We have had a variety of cars both new and old and have dealt with other shops and dealerships for repairs, I wish we had found Accurate Automotive sooner! Their customer service is the best by far and they actually care about your vehicle and you as a customer.Angela J.
Everything was great! I think my favorite part was that they didn't try to sell me on anything, Aussie(Josh :D) made a recommendation for my next service(new air filter- not a $500 package or anything). They were very friendly, fast, and affordable! The free rides they offer while they service your vehicle - another must-have!!!! I will be back 100%! Highly recommend!Ashley Snoozy
