Push the 4wd Auto button, and it goes back to working as it should in that mode. Is it better, or worse? Yes you can use the blue Autotrack fluid in all transfer cases. He then pressed the button on the transfer case to re-engage the 4 wheel drive. Two quartz or four pints. Now you want to refill it. I am sure it is from break in.
I just make sure that I wipe it down really well that way I can inspect it after a while and just make sure there's nothing leaking out. A metal anti-rattle clip works it way through the case housing, causing all fluid to leak out of the transfer case. Couldn't get my hands on some Amsoil that I read about. The failure mileage was 131. At times, it will move forward, but not in reverse for a short time before going neutral. Tighten up the fill plug. My cruise control also has have 6 malfunctions.
I threw my receipt away and I forget how much it cost, but it was priced similarly to other premium full synthetic fluids. There are service bullitens for the problem, but there is no permanent fix. Follow these simple steps to change your fluid: 1. I just put the funnel right up there. All you need is an 18mm wrench a catch pan, a funnel with a tube on it and then the appropriate fluid.
Now just last Thursday Feb 3, my bridgestone tire separated. It has almost caused me to get in a bad accident. So it isn't totally outrageous. Just that the case itself is not an Autotrac. Please tell me more about unplugging and rebooting. The vehicle was taken to an independent transmission shop and the technician replaced the locking clip. Pay us lots of money.
When I pulled the funnel out, fluid came out so I'm letting fluid drain down into my catch pan still. Have a drain pan underneath, capable of holding a minimum of 2 quarts of fluid. I live in Utah, and found two dealers online, which just referenced ordering from the Amsoil site for consumers Last edited by on Feb 15 2012, 7:44pm, edited 1 time in total. The contact filed a complaint with the manufacturer. Changing the fluid in your transfer case is extremely easy. I called the Stealer and they told me to use Smurf oil.
The contact noticed fluid on the ground and noticed that the undercarriage transfer case had a hole. Operates normally in Auto 4wd, 4Hi, and 4Lo, and 4wd functions as it should. I don't have a problem with mine, no shuddering or anything, or noise for that matter. They are cheap and easy to replace. Now the truck has trouble going into 4 wheel drive and also gets hung in reverse.
The intermediate steering shaft was replaced and the problem got worse. The dash panel it sits in just snaps off, a couple of screws and a connector and you are there. The Autotrac refers to the fact that you can put your truck into an auto mode so when your on a slick surface you would be in 2 wheel untill slippage is detected then the transfer case engages the front wheels throught the clutch packs in the case. They are cheap and very easy to replace. Also at 112,000 miles park neutral switch started acting up ,check engine light on ,shift bar light goes away, truck won't shift properly and stay in certain gears without shifting up ,effects door locks. I had the dealer fix it initially.
He has talked to gm, and vehicle was not under a recall. The locking clip failed, which contributed to the failure. I changed the transfer case fliuld out of my truck at 46K and the drain plug looked like that, also the fluid was fairly red. Amsoil tech line also said that the Smurf stuff is proprietary and Amsoil does not have a product that they can say will work. I noticed that when I put my truck in 4 low on my 4x4 manual shift ,and I put the truck in reverse, you can feel the torque. Z71Silvy -- I used Auto 4wd quite a bit last winter.
Amsoil tech line also said that the Smurf stuff is proprietary and Amsoil does not have a product that they can say will work. The factory fill and the over-the-counter fluid is blue, like a Smurf. You basically just want to fill it until fluid starts coming out of the fill hole and that's usually, well this take up to just a little over five pints which is two and a half quartz. Same answer from dealer pay us more money please. What harness would I unplug? I usually put in couple quartz and then see where it goes from there. Transfer case is full of clean oil, wiring harness at transfer case including ground has been disassembled and inspected carefully.
You never know, someone might actually forget to do it since you didn't state to do so. Two days later, while driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle automatically disengaged out of two wheel drive and shifted into neutral. Helps to keep it clean and running free on those super cold mornings. Does this info sound correct? Switches fail quite often on these trucks. Mustang, my switch seems to work like it should.
