The transfer case uses Nissan Type "D" or equivalent, or Dexron/Mercon III ATF, the newest Dexron is Dexron VI, u may use that alo, it is vastly superior to earlier Dexron.

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

    How can I remove/disable the front transfer case on a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder? The gear oil started spraying out everywhere and if possible I just want to disconnect it.


    I was going to say , if you are not going to use it, just take off the drive shaft, but if it sprays oil, it will probably still be spraying it. You can't take off the case, You will need to fix the leak. hope this helps.

    What is the capacity of the transfer case and exactly what fluid do i use


    GM Full-Size Trucks 1980-1987 Repair Guide

    Transfer Case - FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS
    The type of lubricant used in the transfer case varies with model year and type of transfer case. Refer to the list below for the type that applies to your truck.

    1980
    Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W or SAE 80W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant.
    Full time systems use SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
    1981
    Conventional transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
    1982-85
    All transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
    1986-87
    All transfer cases except the K30/35 series require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.

    For fluid recommendations for the K30/35 transfer cases refer to the owner's manual.
    LEVEL CHECKS

    fb6e8b4.jpg
    Fig. Model 208 Transfer Case

    Check the four wheel drive transfer case lubricant level every 4 months or 6,000 miles.
    1. With the truck parked on a level surface and the parking brake firmly applied, remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Be careful not to take out the drain plug at the bottom.
    2. If lubricant trickles out, there is enough. If not, carefully insert a finger and check that the level is up to the edge of the hole, EXCEPT in full time four wheel drive cases should be 1 /2 in. below the hole.
    Lubricant may be added, if necessary, with a funnel and tube, or a squeeze bulb.



    DRAIN AND REFILL
    Part Time Systems
    No intervals are specified for changing transfer case lubricant, but it is a good idea for trucks that are worked hard or driven in deep water.
    1. With the transfer case warmed up, park on a level surface and apply the parking brake.
    2. Slide a pan of a least 6 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
    3. Remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Remove the drain plug from the bottom.
    4. Wipe the area clean and replace the drain plug.
    5. Add lubricant with a suction gun or squeeze bulb. Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W-90 GL-5 Gear Lubricant.
    6. When the lubricant level is up to the bottom of the filler hole, replace the plug.
    Full Time Four Wheel Drive
    The full time system requires oil changes at regular intervals, according to the amount and type of work done by the unit. Trucks used for normal on-off road work should have the transfer case oil changed at 24,000 mile intervals. When used for heavy duty work, trailer towing, snowplowing, and the like, the interval should be halved to 12,000 miles. If the truck is exposed to extremely dusty or muddy conditions, the oil should be changed at 1,000 mile intervals.
    The transfer case oil must be hot before changing. Drive the truck until the engine has reached normal operating temperature, and park on a level surface.
    1. Slide a pan of at least 8 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
    2. Remove the filler plug.
    3. Remove the lowest bolt from the front output shaft rear bearing retainer cover, and allow the lubricant to drain. Be careful; the oil will be hot. There may be a drain plug. If so, remove that instead.
    4. Remove the six bolts on the left (driver's) side of the case which secure to P.T.O. (power take-off) cover. Remove this cover and allow the lubricant to drain out.
    5. Remove the speedometer driven gear from the upper left rear corner of the case.
    6. Use a suction gun to remove as much lubricant as possible from the case cover location and the speedometer gear location.
    7. Install the speedometer driven gear, the P.T.O. cover, and the lowest bolt or drain plug.
    8. Add approximately seven pints of oil through the filler plug opening. The proper oil to use is 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
    9. Check the fluid level and add sufficient oil to raise the level to 1 /2 in. below the filler plug opening. Replace the plug, and wipe the surfaces of the case and skid plate to remove any excess oil. Drive the truck and check for leaks.

    I really hope help ypou woth this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

    Transfer Case gear oil change


    If you use the vehicle for towing or drive in very cold conditions you should do it every 30K miles. Ordinarily you should change it every 60K miles. If I recall this is what Toyota recommends. I personally would recommend doing it every 30k. The Belray is good so I would stick with it .

    You'll probably have to change the clutch plate on the flywheel. You'll have to get a floor jack, but a transmission jack is easier to remove the transmission. To remove the transmission you'll have to remove the tortion bars on both front wheels. Also, you'll have to remove the crossmember aft of the transfer case. You'll also have to remove the front and rear drive shafts. The manual says you should keep the transfer case from leaking oil out the back. but, you can just top it off after you're done. Be careful not to damage the seal seal for the rear drive shaft. Anyway, once you get the transmission and transfer case out (you'll have to remove the shift and transfer case levers), you should have enough space to remove the clutch plate from the flywheel on the engine. You should have an alignment tool to make sure the clutch plate is aligned with the crankshaft so you can put the transmission back on.
