My reason for asking is bcse i have a hole in da transfer case but I have a warranty on my Trans and motor, am i able to have da transfer case fixed thru warranty or will i have to pay out of pocket..

Only way to know is to call.


Wow, that's exactly what I would like to know. My check plug is damaged and fluid is leaking out around it. I just would like to know before hand from someone who would possibly know before I call my transmission shop. I have had so many problems with them and they're not very honest. I have a lifetime warranty on my replacement transmission so I want to know if the transfer case is a part of the transmission and if this is something that they're to be maintaining.
