Your Transfer Case Is Responsible For Delivering Power To All Four Wheels

There is a lot that goes into getting power from your engine to your wheels. Between your transmission and differential, there are many gears that work to deliver it. And in the case of a 4 wheel drive vehicle, that process also includes the use of a transfer case.

The transfer case is engaged when the driver switches to 4 wheel drive from 2 wheel drive. Normally power is sent just to the rear differential and that is how it is sent to the axles. But when the vehicle is in 4 wheel drive the transfer case is engaged and uses the drive shafts to deliver power to both the front and the rear differentials, resulting in full 4-wheel drive.

If you have any other questions regarding the use of a transfer case or any other transmission related concerns then feel free to ask one of the experts here at Macdonald Motors Bridgton – Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Bridgton, ME.
