Transfer Case maintaince

I receive a coupon from my stealership to get an oil change for 15 bucks, So I went and they did it, the service adviser told me that the transfer case has never been serviced, that they would do it for 300 bucks? Any ideas?

For another $300, they will change out the fluid in your differentials. I hope you have deep pockets or are willing to learn. Learning to work on my Jeep was the biggest reason for getting a Jeep.

Holy cow, 300 dollers? The first time i did it, took me 15 minutes, going slow, and cost me like 30 dollers after i bought the fluid, new socket (19mm i think) and the pump to pump it into the transfercase.

For $300 you would still come out a lot cheaper if you drove it to Houston and let me show you how to change it. You're talking about $25 - $35 in fluid and... well that's it.

Even if you don't want to do it yourself, there ARE independent mechanics who would be glad to do it at a much more reasonable cost. Get a few recommendations from friends if you don't know any.

Stuff like diff oil changes etc are NOT specific to jeeps, they're typical of LOTs of cars and trucks. A halfway decent mechanic should do just fine.
