Reply to Greg A's Post: What is trak II were do you find that
Expert:  Greg A replied 6 years ago.

Trak II is a GM made Fluid that you should be able to pick up at almost any GM Dealership parts department. It is not that expensive. I found it at GMPartsDirect.com by punching in the part number.

If you have a "well supplied" auto parts store in your area, you may be able to find it there.

If you know your transfer case number, I can verify this is the correct fluid.
