Replacing T-case Shift motor - need advice
I'm getting set to replace my transfer case shift motor myself (Jeep out of warranty). While back I had a Service 4WD System EVIC message, t-case wouldn't shift into 4-low, and dealer tech said a code for faulty shift motor mode sensor was present. I've got a new shift motor through RockAuto and I'm going to do the swap tomorrow.
Question: Service manual says to "add high temperature grease between the shift motor assembly and the transfer case mating surface for sealing purposes" - why would you use grease for a seal like this. Did they mean and should I use high temperature RTV?
Anybody done this before and what did you use?
