Here at Susanville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Susanville, CA, we get a lot of questions about transfer cases. Here are some fast facts.

Not all cars have transfer cases. Transfer cases distribute power to the front and rear or to the rear axle of a car with 4-wheel drive. They are only needed for cars with multiple powered axles.

Transfer cases vary between different vehicles. Each case contains a series of parts carefully calibrated to your specific make and model. There is no one-size-fits-all part. It's possible to switch transfer cases off in some vehicles. Some vehicles allow you to convert between 2 and 4-wheel drive. 2-wheel drive removes the transfer case function.

Transfer cases can wear over time. Due to the high friction involved in the work of distributing power, cases sometimes wear out.

Transfer case issues require expert care. Any issue involving the transmission of your vehicle can be difficult to diagnose. Repairs generally require specialists who know your vehicle well.
