Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, and welcome to Just Answer. My name is Tom and I will help the best I can. I may need to ask questions to better understand your concern.
Are you going to wrk on the truck on the ground or do you have access to a hoist.
work on it on the ground
Ok, you will need a floor jack and a few pieces of scrap wood for the transmission so you can hold it in place without denting the pan. I will post the service manual procedure and then help with any other questions about it.
Front driveshaft REMOVAL
Last one was for the rear driveshaft
#3 is drain plug
It would be best to have a friend help with actually removing the T-case from the back of the trans when all of the bolts are out. It can be very heavy and awkward for one person on the ground.
alright maybe you can answer another question do u think the transmission ways harmed when the transfer case cracked
You might have to check that out closely when you have the transfer case out, but I honestly don't think that it would hurt both components.
dont they share oil though
no they are seperated
how bout when the transfer case cracked i could still drive it..but once up to 45 or 50 there was a large grinding noss would that be caused from transfer case
It could be because the transfer case is always spinning the drain chain anytime the vehicle is in motion. What cracked the case (outside) or something internal in the transfer case.
the case is cracked so imagen something inside blew abourt to cause the crack just hopen it didnt effect the trany
Ok, the transmission should be fine because it is seperate from the transfer case. Check the second pic that I posted to see what I mean.
alright...and am looking at putting a rebuidl transfer case in...so do i just need to make sure its in neutral when putting it in so everything lines up
It won't matter if it is in neutral, just hook up the linkage from the old one. You might have to move the lever to line it up.
alright but suppose the key put would be back sure the truck and transfer case r in neutral befor removing it
You might have to jack up each axle too be able to rotate the driveshaft and get to all of the u-join bolts.
so just jack up the hole truck and block it from the get go
any bolts or connectioms need to worry about ..or a pain to work with.oor specail too;s needed
or specail tool needed
sorry for the slow replys some how other experts keep jumping in and locking this thread and I don't know how
it would probably be easier to jack it up from the start yes
Might need E-torx sockets for the u-joint bolts. There is a clam on the rubber boot of therear driveshaft they may need to be replaced.
alright..probably need new gasket between trainy and tranfer case to right
Actually they are seals, one on trans and one on the t-case
alright i remember seeing in the ins..u sent something about marking out driveshaft and and wanting to say rear axle befor tearing apart..didnt relly follow all that
use a paint pen or scratch a line on the drive shaft yoke so that they are put back in the same position. If they go back together at a differnet position they could make a vibration.
so need to mark it on the rear axle and on the t-case or just axle
both ends on both shafts
will if i putting in a rebuild how am i post to know where the drive shaft hooks up
good point, sorry just the u-joints that connect to the axles then
so the knuckel that the connecets to the t-case
no just the u-joints/cv joints at the front and rear axle
alright kinda follow got a pic
click on the last one I posted
thats to the rear axle right?..four bolt to remove it
so on The t-case can just mark the u joints marking the t-case ant going to do me no good
no sorry for the confusion, not since you are replacing it. The axle is the most important to be marked anyway
so mark the back axle...and where it lines up is where it lines up on the new t-case?
alright is that going to cause a vibration or just got to go with it
no it won't the rear u-joint is the critical one, don't worry about the transfer case side
what about the t-Case trainy connection anything to worry about there
no, the output shaft of the trans slines into the transfer case
and should line up as long as the t-case and trans r both in neutral
so as u been saying just make sure the back axle is marked and get new seals and hook the drive shaft up and we should be going down the road
yes, and don't forget fluid. ATF+4 for the transfer case
can i pick that up at napa,auto zone,avdaced
hoe many quarts
