Which gear does it normally jump out of.

The transfer case oil that is leaking where is it coming from the out put shaft seals or the case .

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It does it in any Gear when in 4WD High ratio but when i put it in 4WD Low Ratio there is no problem. It is bullet proof.

The seepage seems to be just from one bolt at the bottom of the transfer case.The mechanic cleaned all off completely three days ago and we hve done only about 50kms or less and we have a very small seepage.Just a smear on this one bolt in housing.
Expert:  Greg replied 4 years ago.
This leak is a transfer case gasket leak, that should be first checked for tightness and retorqued .
As for the slipping out of gear this could one of the following :

  • Engine and transmission mounts.
  • Pilot Bearing Worn,
  • Bent Shift Fork,
  • Worn Gear Teeth Or Face, Excessive
  • Gear Train End Play,
  • Worn Synchronizers,
  • Missing Detent Ball Spring, Shift Mechanism
  • Worn Or Out Of Adjustment, Engine Or Transmission Mount Bolts Loose,
  • Transmission Not Aligned
