Transfer Case Problems

Asked by Feb 29, 2016 at 05:17 PM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just swapped transfer case, how much
fluid do I need to put back in transfer
case?

1 Answer

I was told to fill it till it spilled out the hole where you could put it in at. Then, since the mech said they were known for their problems... he suggested jacking the truck even further on one end so that I could overfill it in the same hole; then close it up and let it down. Might take 8 liters or more. Fill till fill. Then tip the truck up and fill more. Check it often and re-fill.
