How to change the engine oil. You will need to remove lower part of fairing to access under the engine. There you will find a drain bolt to undo. A large bolt located on the underside of the engine, usualy with an aluminium washer, or O ring. Undo the bolt and catch the oil in a suitable container. This should be done when the engine is warm, as the oil will flow out better. When empty, replace the sump bolt, preferebly with a new washer so it wont leak.
Replace the correct amount of oil back into the bike.
On top of the transfer case will be a plug you can undo by hand, the oil filler, mabey this has a dip stick on it for level. Most Kawasaki also had a site glass for the oil level, on the lowe , side of the engine.

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)
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.

I have a leak in the transfer case, just had the shop replace so seals in the engine and now they say transfer case is leaking shouldn't that have been checked then?


the engine and transfer case are to totally different monsters your transfer case controls the four wheel drive if your engine was leaking oil and they replaced some seals most likely they seen grease and oil on the transfer case and assumed it was leaking from the leaking engine that is directly above it even if you dont use the four wheel drive I would still sugest getting that fixed because the axles still turn inside there and you dont want those bearings drying up and going bad

How do u remove a transfer case


Most suvs have the transfer case linked to the transmission. Best is to take both out at the same time.Generally:
  1. Disconnect the battery
  2. Unplug all wires from the transmission - transfer case unit. Make sure you mark them so you can reconnect them properly
  3. Get inside the car and remove the shift lever(s)
  4. Remove the starter
  5. Remove the clutch slave if there's one or disconnect all cables from the unit
  6. Support the car on stands so you can work easily under it.
  7. Drain the oil from the unit may have 1 or 2 drain plugs
  8. Remove the shafts making sure you marked the alignment where they are joined
  9. Support both the engine and the transmission unit with the appropriate jacks
  10. Unbolt the transmission from the engine
  11. Remove the unit support (s)
  12. Remove the unit from the car.
Important to remember the type of oil that goes in the trans and in the transfer case. They may not be the same. Also, some electrical transfer cases don't use any oil.

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.

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.

Leaking transfer case..


First of all yes it will damage the transfer case with no oil in it or even low oil. if it is just a seal then it is easy to replace, but if it means splitting the transfer case this is not a job for the diy, unless you have experience with transmissions or transfer cases. It should not be too expensive to have the work done by a profesional. Which also give you a warranty.

encoder motor, but make sure when your button is pushed or switched to 4 hi that it either blinks or shows some kinda light, this is a poor mans way to make certain that the electrical portion is trying it's part but the encoder internal reistat is not giving the correct position to the response
