The transfer case shows to use Automatic Transmission Fluid. I would personally use a full synthetic transmission fluid as well. I showed three transfer case options for that vehicle and depending on which one you have it will hold anywhere from 1.5 quarts to just a little over 2 quarts depending on which one you have.

Holden Rodeo 4x4 petrol 2001 V6 what is the lubricant quantities for the diffs, gear box & transfer case. Also what weights of oil


manual transmission --- 80w-90 for the gearbox and transfer case
diff is 80-90 oep if a straight diff and different if a limited slip diff gear box is around the 2.5 ltrs as is the diff each
LiSiD oil can be used in LiSiD diffs and straight diffs but straight oil cannot be used in lisid diffs
the transfer case uses the same as the box but the quantity you will have to check in the lubrication section of the user manual
many user manuals recommend a lighter straight oil for transfer cases and boxes ( 30 straight oil) but I find that the light oil promotes bearing wear and gear problems as the oil squeezes out under load

2006 tahoe is stuck in 4x4 low


This can be caused by worn out fluid in the transfer case, this cause the clutch to stick in the transfer case. The Transfer case fluid (ATF) should be replaced with clean fluid every 30,000 miles or so, if you haven't done that drain the fluid and replace it with clean Dexron Type VI ATF

Sounds like bearing in the front of my 1500 chev in four wheel only lound whine


If it whines when in the 4x4 position but not at any other time then the noise you hear may be coming from the transfer case and is caused by the high gear load of driving both axles on a this type of surface. If you are driving in the 4x4 position on any dry hard surface you will hear some noise from the transfer case and usually it is a noticeable whine. Also, driving in 4x4 on a dry/hard surfaces greatly adds to the strain and wear on the power train. It would also be a good idea to have the both axles and transfer case fluid levels checked to be sure none of them are low. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

1996 chev s10 4x4 pickup automatic has problem with rpm faster than should be while driving. what could cause this ?


Tires smaller than factory specs will cause your engine rpm to have to spin higher to achieve the same speed...... but would also throw out your speedo.
Only other things I can think of is...... wornout transmission or low tranny fluid.
A longer shot may be that you have never serviced your 4x4 (it should be done yearly even if you do not use it) and there could be an issue there bleeding some power.
I am leaning to fried clutches...... have burned out more than than my share. Brake stands are hard on them ;)

Encoder motor located on the transfer case is usually the problem. It is the motor that shifts the transfer case.

What kind of oil do I put into the transfer case? Is that why the computer keeps saying check 4 wheel drive?


no, DO NOT use gear oil. The transfer case uses the same type of automatic transmission fluid that the transmission uses. Is the display saying "service 4x4 switch"? If so it is common and the 4WD indicator light switch is bad and needs replaced. It's only purpose is to tell the driver info center what 4 wheel drive mode the transfer case is in. This switch will not affect the function of the 4 wheel drive. The correct fluid for the transfer case is +4 automatic transmission fluid.

4x4 transfer case oil change for 2007 Chevy Tahoe


Go buy the chevrolet shop manual for the truck. Its worth every penny in the long run and will save you thousands by not going to the dealer for everything, because they consult the shop manual. make sure your tranny doesnt share fluid with your transfer case, you could over fill or underfill it easily.

96 chevy tahoe, transfer case making noise such as chain slipping


Fluid Should Be Checked Just The Same As Engine Oil. Should Be Changed At Least Once A Year For Proper Service & Reliability. Should be Driven 10 Miles A Month In 4 Hi To Keep Lubricated. I Drive A 1975 Chevy K10 PKP FullTime 4X4 NP203 & A 1980 GMC Jimmy Lock-Outs 4X4 NP205, And I Drive Them Once A Month At 55 MPH For 10 Miles (On Pavement). Keeps The System Lubed Up & Moving. Have Done This For The Last 15 Years I Have Owned Them. KEEP THEM SERVICED. Low Oil Is A Transfer Case Killer. Also Put The Correct Type Of Fluid In, Each Transfer Case Takes A Different Type Of Fluid, Call Dealer Shop For Correct Fluid Type. Some Take Dextron III Or 10-40 Engine Oil Depends On Transfer Case.
