The transfer case is a vital component in four-wheel-drive (4WD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicles. Its main purpose is to direct the core drive power from the transmission to the four wheels through the front and rear a. It basically controls which of the wheels are to get power depending on the mode of the car. In AWD vehicles, it helps shift power from an axle to another depending upon traction.
Transfer Case requires lubricants to continue to function in a proper manner and also imperative to maintain it in optimal condition. Periodic changes can help avoid premature damage by friction between various moving parts.

Most of the expert mechanics recommend changing the transfer case fluid every 30-50,000 km, but it mainly depends on the way your vehicle has been used. For Example, if you have been towing large trucks or have been putting other forms of stress on your transfer case fluid, then you should get it checked regularly to ensure no leaks and the fluid hasn’t lost its lubricating capacity.
