Transfer Case Repair and Truck Transmission Repair
Let’s start with your transfer case. A transfer case is, in a way, almost like an extra transmission for four wheel drive vehicles. A transfer case is component that is part of the power train of four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles. Drive shafts connect the transfer case to the transmission. The transmission generates the power, and the transfer case sends the signal to both sets of axles. While it can be gear-based, most transfer cases are chain driven. While a lot of transfer cases are automatic, some can be controlled manually by the driver, often with the flick of a switch. This is very important with off-road vehicles where greater torque is necessary. You want to regularly service your transfer case, at intervals between 15,000 and 25,000 miles. If your pickup truck is four wheel drive, then you want to make sure you take care of all it’s components and since this article is about truck transmission repair, don’t neglect your transmission either.
Most pickup trucks nowadays are automatic transmission based. Usually it is only vehicles designed specifically for off-roading that have manual transmissions or five speeds. A pickup truck’s automatic transmission has to work perfectly with a transfer case, or otherwise you run the risk of damaging both components, or have a much rougher ride than you might be expecting.
