Answers :

On the rear of the transfer case you will see two large nuts. one slightly higher than the other, both about 1" wrench size (may be slightly larger)
Remove the top one while vehicle is on level ground, and fill from there. Put a pan below it to catch any overflow. Unit is full when fluid begins to run out of the hole. Once finished, your'e a mechanic!!!
Good Luck!!

I have 1991 2 wheel drive legacy it has only 120,000 original miles now, It makes a noise that changes with engine rpm. but I put stethoscope on both valve covers and on the alternator,also on the air conditioning pump, no noise coming from those areas. Sounds like the rocker arm noise on other cars if the oil level is down indicdating that no oil is getting to lifters. Of course I had oil changed and put in syntehic oil. What could be causing the noise? something down below? In the oil pan? No

I'm thinking of buying a 1993 Audi, selling price is $500.00. I test drove the vehicle - nice ride and handling. The seller said that there was an oil leak, which she was putting in 1-11/2 quarts every couple weeks. I noticed after test-driving, that oil was dripping out of the tail pipe. There was no sign of a leak from the engine area on the ground where the car had been sitting. Any idea what's going on and why the car is using so much oil?


Oil out of the exhaust would mean worn rings, worn valve stem seals or both. This would usually be accompanied by white smoke exiting the tailpipe. (mileage in the region of 100000miles plus??) Another explanation could be a cracked cylider head. ... 1995 Audi 90

Yesterday while driving my car shut off, steering wheel locked up and I had to try to steer it out of traffic. I then restarted it and it went but it happened a couple more times before going home.

I have a chevy pick-up truck the year 1995 Z71. I put the truck in 4x4 high for the first time this year and did not get a light near the gear lever nor did it go into 4 wheel drive. I check the transfer case with it in neutral and the front shaft would turn freely, then put it in 4 wheel high and it would not turn.

2002 2500 silverado - 4-wheel drive makes clicking noise some times, mainly when cornering. Now the nose went away, and no 4 wheel drive anymore. 4-wheel drive light is on, but no 4 wheel drive. Vehicle on jack stands, start engine, put into drive, then enguage 4-wheel drive. Light flashes and clicking sound comes from transmission. Is the transfer [art pf the transmission out, or just a actuator? Is there a way of enguaging the 4-wheel drive manually?


Well typically is there is a noise when making a turn its caused by a bad cv-joint but if your having problems with the 4 wheel drive i would look at the linkage to the transfer case and make sure there is not to much play or bent or broke rods and s ... 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

What kind of oil do I put into the transfer case? Is that why the computer keeps saying check 4 wheel drive?


No, DO NOT use gear oil. The transfer case uses the same type of automatic transmission fluid that the transmission uses. Is the display saying "service 4x4 switch"? If so it is common and the 4WD indicator light switch is bad and needs replaced. ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2003 ford focus zts 2.0l dohc. I have problems with the car shutting down everytime I get to a stop light or stop sign. If I leave it in park and let the engine warm, its not a problem but only when i put it in drive. could the problem be the transmission fluid, cause it looks completely empty and I just had an oil change at the ford dealer and they informed that it needed some work such as a complete tune up and having my engine mounted, but is overall a decent buy.


It seems like it could be the egr valve if it only does this after its warm,if it did it all the time i would say the iac valve. hope this helps you. ... 2000 Ford Focus

I used my 4 wheel drive today on my 2001 Nissan Fronteir. After I took it out of 4 wheel drive I headed down the road. I heard a constant noise so I slowed and put it back in 4 hi. The noise stopped but when I put back in 2 wheel drive it continued. I then stopped and backed up and applied the brakes and when I went forward the noise stopped. What could that noise be? Thanks
