When it comes to all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles, there can be many different parts to learn about which are not found on more basic, two-wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case is a critical part of any vehicle with multiple powered axles.

The purpose of the transfer case is to transmit power from the transmission to the front and rear axles via the use of drive shafts. It can be connected directly to the transmission in what is commonly referred to as a "married" configuration, or they might be completely separate from the transmission and located further down the driveline in a "divorced" or "independent" configuration. The transfer case also serves to synchronize the speed of the front and rear wheels. The transfer case on your vehicle might have one or more low range gears for off-road use.

It is important to have your transfer case regularly inspected and maintained in order to ensure your vehicle continues to operate smoothly. If you have any questions about the performance or condition of your transfer case, our friendly service team at Jim Peach Motors Ford is ready to help.
