Professional Transfer Case Repair

Arizona is blessed with a lot of rugged beauty. From the trails around the Superstition Mountains, to the wide open expanses around Yuma, there is a lot to explore, especially with a four-wheel drive vehicle. If you’re going to go 4x4ing, you need several things to work. First off, you need high performance shocks and struts. Going cheap on your shocks and struts, particularly if you are going over rough terrain is a sure way to damage your sport utility vehicle or truck. You’re going to make sure that your car’s transmission is working, and most importantly of all, you’re going to need your vehicle’s transfer case operating at peak efficiency. So if it’s been a while, take your car in for transfer case repair in Mesa, or transfer case service. But what is a transfer case?
According to this article excerpt from Wikipedia:

“A transfer case is a part of the drivetrain of four-wheel-drive, all-wheel-drive, and other multiple powered axle vehicles. The transfer case transfers power from the transmission to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. It also synchronizes the difference between the rotation of the front and rear wheels, and may contain one or more sets of low range gears for off-road use.
The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with gears, hydraulics, or chain drive. On some vehicles, such as four-wheel-drive trucks or vehicles intended for off-road use, this feature is controlled by the driver. The driver can put the transfer case into either “two-wheel-drive” or “four-wheel-drive” mode. This is sometimes accomplished by means of a shifter, similar to that in a manual transmission. On some vehicles this may be electronically operated by a switch instead. Some vehicles, such as all-wheel-drive sports cars, have transfer cases that are not selectable. Such a transfer case is permanently “locked” into all-wheel-drive mode.”

A Transfer Case Helps With Safe Off-Roading

Where most people go offroading is a bit on the remote side. It makes sense if you think about it. You kind of want to get away from the crowds and traffic of the city and get back to nature.

According to this article excerpt:

Four wheel drive refers to vehicles that have a differential that may or may not be lockable, between the front and rear axles, meaning that the front and rear drive shafts will not rotate at different speeds. This provides maximum torque transfer to the axle with the most traction, but can cause binding in high traction, tight turning situations. They are also either full-time or part-time 4WD selectable.All wheel drive refers to a drive train system that includes a differential between the front and rear drive shafts. This is usually coupled with some sort of anti-slip technology that will allow all wheels to spin at different speeds, but still maintain the ability to transfer torque from one wheel in case of loss of traction at that wheel. All wheels are engaged to the drive full-time… [READ MORE]

In a way, a four wheel drive is kind of an additional transmission that allows you to have better control over rougher terrain.  In a place that is heavily urban, a four wheel drive goes largely unused.  In a rugged area like Arizona, however, where even now, some roads aren’t paved, a four wheel drive vehicle can be quite useful.  A system like four wheel drive also needs something to help it move power between wheels, and that is your transfer case.

A Transfer Case and it’s Repair

The transfer case transfers power from the transmission  to both the front and rear axles. Some transfer cases use  gears, but many more  transfer cases nowadays are chain driven.  Like any engine part, sooner or later you are going to need to repair it.  And make no mistake, transfer case repair is not something most people can do.

Trail Transmission is an expert in transfer case repair, as well as fixing transmissions, and rear differentials.
