NO ! DO NOT MIX!!   They are completely separate products with very specific properties and if the transfer box can survive an oil mix, the auto gearbox won't. Actually the gearbox is so sensitive that you must always use a single brand and type of oil when you work or perform maintenance on it.

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 myoilshop.com)

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.

What type of fluid do i use in my transfer case


If you have the manual transfer case (lever actuated), use DEXRON-III Automatic Transmission Fluid. If you have an automatic transfer case (push button actuated), you should use the fluid that GM recommends. Some owners' manuals may say to use Automatic Transfer Case Fluid (GM Part No. 12378396), which is a reddish colored fluid. GM has a new Auto Trak II Transfer Case Fluid (GM Part No. 12378508), which has a bluish color to it. The newer fluid has better friction modifiers. While your doing the job, it's a good idea to change the drain and fill plugs (GM Part No. 15032997) out too.

My transmision fluid is black and two transmision mechanics say if you change transmision fluid the car wont run no more is this true sombody please help me they are saying im going to need a new...


The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

1998 Dodge caravan AWD transmision slips at full throttle


Have you serviced the transmission latley? fluid, filter, band adjustment

Usually under heavy throttle causing the slip is caused by a seal in the pump leaking off hydraulic pressure letting the clutches slip.

Does it slip in all gears or just 1st.?
Does it slip in reverse?
The reason I ask this is because 1st and reverse use different fluid pathways,

also you can take it to a tranny shop and have them check the fluid pressure at the accumlator port to determine what the exact problem is,but my advice is to just drive it easy and make it last as long as you can,a new or rebuild tranny from a dealer would run 2500 or more.

there is a website www.car-part.com that you can use to find a replacement transmission

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.

Transmission fluid


If your vehicle has the 5.2 liter,aka 318 cubic inch engine,there is only one transmission model applicable and it is the 42 RE which used to be designated the A500.It is a 4speed overdrive transmission.If installing a rebuilt trans and new remanufactured dry torque convertor.You add 4 quarts initially,then fire the engine and add another 5-6 quarts for a total capacity of 9-10 quarts.Fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral.If you are only dropping the pan,you will replace roughly 4 quarts.The transfer case fills separately,but uses the same automatic transmission fluid.Capacity for the transfer case is about 2 quarts/fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole.Good luck.
