Changed out f/r diff and transfer case fluid.

Decided since I have around 48k miles and needed to change the rear diff fluid I would change the front and the transfer case too. Rear was simple took a little more than a quart of 75/140. I wanted to change the transfer and front since I live in North Dakota and after 5 years of my 2012 running awd almost 4 months outta year I figured it wasn't a bad idea. The transfer was pretty easy takes a little more than a quart of fluid and I could only find the mopar stuff. Now the dealer tried to sell me the fluid they use for the Ram trucks and was saying it wouldn't matter and that's what they use. Really? I'm sure mopar has a separate fluid for a reason so I made then order it. Not a very difficult job since I had it on jack stands all the way around. The front was a little more difficult since it doesn't have a plug and must be sucked outta the fill hole. The rear fluid didn't look bad at all, the transfer was dirty and I'm glad I changed it, and the front was plain nasty. I know they show a fill for life unless under extreme conditions but if you plan on keeping yours for sometime I would recommend changing it.


I used a siphon/transfer pump and it worked great on the rear and transfer was a little to big for the front so I wasn't able to get it all out but at least half.

Just food for thought and great to finally join since I look at your guys post a few times a week.

Yea and I know I should have taken pics but didn't think about it at the time.

The manual says to do it around 60k but it doesn't hurt to do it a bit sooner, especially for the transfer case. Fluid is cheap.

I had the dealer do mine since it was in there for warranty service. I don't know what the procedure is, but unless you specify that you want to change it all they will do is check and top it off. That doesn't get rid of debris and it doesn't let you (or the mechanic) see how much metal shavings you might have, and whether the amount of crud that comes out looks unusual and indicates a potential problem developing.
