Serviceing transfer case

11 posts in this topic

What is involved in servicing the transfer case on my 06 F150? What else could possibly be done other than draining and refilling? Is it nessecary at 17000 miles? A dealer is after me to get it done soon.

I don't know specifically on the Ford's, but on my Silverado I've just drained and refilled. I wouldn't think that it would be necessary at 17K. I did mine at 20K and the fluid still looked like it was brand new.

The procedure is to just drain and refill. At 17k? This is a 50k service, they are really reaching for your money!

Thats what I thought. They need to replace a gasket, AGAIN!, so I'm sure someones trying to cover some the cost.

Its not mentioned at the 18k, 20k, or 30k but it is mentioned at the 60k maintenance schedule. There should be a service schedule in the owners manual, I would check that also, if that says the same thing I would bring this to the service managers attention? There are enough things to fix on fords without having to make stuff up. wink (yup, I went there! grin)

I do mine about every 30,000 miles or so. It is easy and very cheap to do while the oil is draining from the eng...

I know most never do it and do not have issues.

I would check the owners manual like Air said and I would confront the service writer or managerw ith any miss information.

Good luck!

No offense taken Air, I'll probably go back to GM's the next time around.

If you still have it under warranty make sure you do the suggested services at the appropriate mileage intervals listed in the owners manual. You don't want to get stuck with paying for something that would normally be covered under warranty just because you missed a service...like changing transfer fluid.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
