Can you drive without your front drive shaft?

It’s rather difficult to operate a vehicle without a drive shaft. The transmission output shaft would just sit there and spin. Front drive only vehicles essentially have two drive shafts. Most all wheel drive vehicles would suffer damage if you tried to drive without one or more of the drive shafts.

How much oil goes in a transfer case?

In most vehicles, a transfer case is filled with a small amount of gear oil (usually SAE 75W-85, 80W-90 or 75W-140 grade). The transfer case of the Toyota FJ Cruiser in the photo, for example, takes only 1.5 quarts (1.4 liters) of SAE 75W gear oil.

What happens if your transfer case is low on fluid?

Difficulty changing gears – Low or dirty transfer case fluid can affect your transmission’s ability to shift gears. It can also result in your car unexpectedly falling out of four-wheel drive. This will create loud grinding noises which may become louder when four-wheel drive is engaged.

Is transfer case oil the same as transmission fluid?

Most transfer cases are filled with an automatic transmission fluid, which is usually red in colour. Others use a thicker gear oil, and some use a specialized fluid that is specifically made just for that transfer case.

Is it dangerous to drive with a bad transfer case?

Plus, you should try not to drive with a bad transfer case even though you cannot get the repair done. If you can take your car out of four-wheel-drive, you should do so. Plus, any off-road driving that you do should be kept to a minimum because bumps in the road could cause even more damage to your transfer case.

How much does it cost to replace a transfer case?

Transfer cases may contain one or multiple sets of low range gears for off-road utility. Typically, the average cost for a replacement is expensive, between $2,389 and $2,500. Labor costs are typically around five hundred dollars. These estimates do not include taxes and fees.
