What is a Transfer Case?

The transfer case is a part of the drive train in all wheel drive and 4 wheel drive vehicles, and receives power from the transmission to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with gears, hydraulics, or chain drive.

Manual Shift On-the-Fly transfer cases have a selector lever on the driver’s side floor transmission hump and, in addition, may have either two sealed automatic front axle locking hubs or two manual front axle hub selectors of “LOCK” and “UNLOCK” or “FREE”.

Electronic Shift On-the-Fly (ESOF) transfer cases have a dash-mounted selector switch or buttons with front sealed automatic locking axle hubs or drive flanges. Some vehicles, such as Jeeps, also have what is called SelecTrac, which has a slider switch on the center console. Unlike the manual transfer case, this system has a transfer case motor.

A-affordable Transmissions Center Transfer Case Repair Service Always Includes A Visual Inspection.

Removal and replacement of damaged internal gears. Bearings, gaskets and seals in the transfer case are also replaced when needed. Our technicians rebuild or repair the transfer case in your auto, and only replace parts if they have gone bad. We warranty the entire transfer case when we are done.

All Wheel Drive

All wheel drive cars and trucks have a transfer case that is typically on and transmitting power to all wheels at all times. However, some all wheel drive transfer cases only transfer power to all four wheels when slippage of the wheels is detected by special sensors, which are used to control transfer case percentage of apply and operation. Most transfer cases can be shifted manually or may have an electronic switch to use for transfer case mode operation. Some all wheel drive vehicles do not require a switch or a lever. This type of transfer case is four wheel drive at all times.

A Transfer Case Is Unique To Four Wheel Drive Auto & Truck And Is What Directs Power To Both The Front And Rear Differential Of The Auto Through Two Separate Driveshafts.

Rear drive vehicles don’t need a transfer case because the driveshaft comes directly out of the transmission to the drive wheels via the rear differential.

These devices allow an all-wheel-drive system to function properly on any surface. The transfer case on a part-time four-wheel-drive system locks the front-axle driveshaft to the rear-axle driveshaft, so the wheels are forced to spin at the same speed.

Four Wheel Drive Systems Allow All Four Wheels On A Vehicle To Spin Simultaneously

All 4WD vehicles have a transfer case between the front and rear axles that prevents the axles from spinning at different speeds. The transfer case allows the engine to provide maximum torque to the axle and wheels in order to maintain traction. Different 4WD configurations exist, and each variation employs different technologies to meet the needs of the driver. Some 4WD systems have a locking differential.

This means both wheels on the axle will turn together to achieve maximum traction. Another variation is the limited-slip differential. It can detect a slide or slip in one wheel and send torque to the other wheel to regain traction. A manual hub requires users to manually engage the front wheel drive mechanism in order to fully engage the 4WD system, while an automatic hub allows users to automatically command the front wheels in order to engage the 4WD system.

Our Service Staff Has Extensive Experience Working On All Types Of 4wd Systems.

These guys are SO great. Great job and a great price! My family and I (and even friends that I referred) drive an hour to come to them. They do great work and have excellent customer care! Even when it was closing time they were so kind and helpful, making sure I understood and was satisfied with everything, instead of just rushing me out the door. 100% recommend them!

Hello, had the transmission in my 66 Ford Fairlane rebuilt in October 2021. Nearly 2 years later still working great no leaks shifts just as nice as it did when I picked it up. Great customer service after the rebuild would totally recommend.

Take your car here. If you have any transmission issues this is the absolute best transmission shop you will find in Denver. My cars transmission lost reverse gear, and had a slew of other issues going on internally that I didn’t even know about, requiring a complete transmission rebuild. Devin was absolutely phenomenal, and let me know everything that was happening during the entire service. These guys absolutely stand by their word, and work. The diagnostic is only $90. With 250k miles, I have a rebuilt engine with 50k miles on it, and now a new, rebuilt transmission. Flawless. Another 4×4 lives another day. Drives smoother than ever. Thank you guys!

Cody Dent

Brought my 08 pontiac grand prix for a rebuild of the transmission, car was done within two days of dropping it off and the price quoted was correct and affordable (for a transmission rebuild) the shop is very professional and knowledgeable also friendly and don’t make you feel dumb or belittle you for asking questions. Also check back in with you on their work a week or two later. Would definitely return to these guys for any transmission work I’ll need on any of my vehicles and will always recommend them to friends, family and anyone needing work done. Thank you guys!!

Eleanore Thayer

I can not rave enough about thus place. Randy and his team are fast, friendly, and KNOW what they are doing! I had my clutch replaced here after being less than happy with another company doing it twice and blowing it both times in two years… This team is transparent and care about the quality of their work. If you need transmission work or your clutch replaced, this is your company. They made my Subaru ready for the road and I couldn’t be happier! 10/10 tldr: use this company and you will be a happy camper
