How can I change oil in transfer case?

If you want to know how here it is. Transfer cases have 2 plugs. A drain plug on the lower back of the case. And it has a fill/check plug. Remove top plug first to vent case. Remove bottom plug to drain oil. Replace bottom plug and tighten. You will need a pump or squeeze bottle to fill the case. Fill through the top hole until oil comes out of hole. Replace top plug...that's it.
Refer to owners manual for oil weight. Probably 90 but check to be sure.

How can I add oil to transfer case?

There are 2 plugs in the transfer case. They have a square indention in the plugs. Ther will be one dor draining, it will be located on the bottom. The fill plug should be up about 4 or 5 inches up. The square in the plug will be for using a ratchet, 3/8" drive. It snaps right in. Remove the fill plug ONLY. Use a funnel or a transfer case filler pump. Use whatever you can make work. You will know it is full when it runs out of the plug, or you can check as you fill by sticking your finger in the hole. When it reaches the hole, it is full.

Where do i find my transfer case and what fluid does it use

1. Be sure to run your car (in 4WD) for about 5-10 minutes or so to warm the oil up and be sure to park on a level ground.First we need to gather our materials. This is what I used for my oil change:Initial expenses
  • Oil Catcher - $10 at Pep Boys
  • Fluid Pump - $5 at Pep Boys
  • 24mm wrench or ratchet (assumed ownership)
  • 12mm? and 14mm? sockets to remove skidplate
Transfer Case Change Expenses
  • 3 Qt 75W90 Gear Oil - $21
  • (I used Redline from
tcase1-nggid03733-ngg0dyn-320x240x100-00f0w010c010r110f110r010t010.jpg 2. Locate the Transfer Case.
Remove the Fill Hole plug first, then place your oil catcher in position, and remove the drain hole plug.
While the oil drains, clean off the drain plug.
3. When finished draining, replace the drain plug, and proceed to pump the fluid into the fill hole.
I filled until the fluid overran, but you can check the fluid by sticking a pinky into the hold and checking the level.
Replace the fill hole plug, and done.

How to fill a transfer case

To fill transfer, you didnt list the type of truck but all are about the same.
what is not the same is the type of oil used in the transfer case, its important to use the correct type. the transfer case is fill from the side, theres a drain plug at the rear bottom and then the fill is mid way up on the side of the case, you will fill until oil runs back out, allow extra oil to drain when stream is low put plug in. hope this helps.

How do I change the transfer case fluid on za ford escape

Hi there,


New transfer case lubricant must be installed any time the transfer case has been submerged in water. Also, transfer case failure CAN result if the correct fill procedures are not followed.

NOTE: The transfer case is lubricated for life and is not to be checked unless a leak is suspected or a repair is necessary.
  1. Remove the drain plug and drain the transfer case.
  2. Apply sealant to the drain plug threads and install the plug.
  3. The fluid level must be even with the bottom of the filler hole with the vehicle on flat, level ground.
To Fill:
  1. Remove the fill plug and fill the transfer case with SAE 75W-140 synthetic gear lubricant.
  2. Apply sealant to the fill plug and install the plug.

How do you check the transfer case fluid level

  • Locate the fill plug in the center of the transfer case facing the rear. The fill plug is a hex head bolt.

  • Remove the fill plug and check the fluid level. Insert the short end of an L-shaped Allen wrench into the hole. Spin the Allen wrench slightly and remove it. Some fluid should be present on the tip if the unit is full.

  • Attach a screw-on hand pump to a bottle of Mopar ATF+4 type 9602 automatic transmission fluid. Insert the other end of the tubing for the hand pump into the fill plug hole on the transfer case.

  • Pump fluid into the transfer case until the fluid is flush with the bottom of the hole. A small bead of fluid will drip out of the hole when the case is full.

  • Reinstall the fill plug and torque it to between 15 and 25 foot-pounds of torque. Hand-tightening the plug and turning it 1/2-half turn further with a socket wrench is equivalent to 20 foot-pounds of torque if you do not have a torque wrench available.

    Ned to change the oil in transfer case

    The Z71 typically comes with the auto 4wd transfer case (cannot remember the GM number). This requires AutoTrak II, which is available at a GM dealer. Do not use any other fluid in this transfer case! The previous post was correct in the location of the two plugs, but not on the fluid (the other types of transfer cases by GM use ATF). The transfer case is located under the truck right under the cab. There is a small skid plate under it, and a large driveshaft leaves the rear end of the case heading to the rear differential (axle). If you have the manual or electronic w/o auto 4WD transfer case, you can use Dexron III, but Dexron VI is a better fluid that is also now available at your local auto parts store. Again, if you have the AUTO 4WD button in the dash, use the AutoTrak II fluid from the dealer.

    2007 quadratrac transfer case

    They run on the same fluid but have different fill ports. The transfer case has a fill hole on the back of the case. The fill plug is a big looking nut. Fill the case from there on a level ground until the fluid starts to come out, then it's full.
