transfer case

  1. Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    My mechanic told me I should replace my transfer case on my 2011 Venza. Why the whole case? Why not just seals, bearings, etc.? Are those parts not replaceable?
  2. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    After failing to remove the transfer case drain plug with an open end box wrench, I came up with an easy & inexpensive DIY. I had done this Transfer Case Oil Service before on my 2011 HL, but this time I got stuck with a slipping open end wrench. Removing the fill plug was not a problem...
  3. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hello friends, Took my car in for a 130k oil change and rotation, they noted a leak on the transfer case. I'm not sure if this is the same as the known TSB regarding possible leaking and mixing of ATF/gear oil, or if it is the other TSB regarding leaking from a vent - although I think only...
  4. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I have a 1989 Toyota 4X4 standard cab that I picked up 2 years ago. It has some jacked up buckets seats from an unknown car so I want to put in a refurbished Toyota OEM bench seat instead. The truck doesn't get much use so I prefer a bench seat in it over buckets. I just picked up a good...
  5. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello All, Noticed by transfer case is leaking gear oil from the area where the propeller shaft goes out to the rear differential. By looking there are no means of removing it from the diff. There is a flange with bolts (or nuts and studs) at the back of the shaft on the rear diff. Do I have...
  6. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have found this forum really useful, so I thought I'd post to see if anyone has advice on my current breakdown (and for posterity). Three weeks ago I bought a 2003 4wd Matrix. All was good for the first 800 miles, but on Sunday, after about 50 miles on the highway, I noticed a whining coming...
  7. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    So ive never heard of or experienced this, but the truck I just got (Jim Creek Special) is not driving so hot, it makes a rapid clicking noise like the brake light solenoid and then a sudden thudding slam from what sounds like the transmission (clutch, pressure plate, etc.?). The clicking noise...

    I have a 97 Tacoma 3.4L 4x4. Manual 5speed, Manual J gate transfer case.Manual Hubs. Now heres my issue: My transfer case does not engage the front drive shaft. If I lock my hubs the drive shaft is locked so I know its not the hubs that are the problem. If I select 4lo the transmission goes...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    My vehicle speed sensor (VSS or Speedometer) broke in half while driving over a speed bump. After about 50 miles of driving, it chewed up the gears and shot a huge hole in the transfer case. I lost all the differential fluid and decided to swap the transmission by myself. I bought a used one for...
  10. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have been searching everywhere and have gotten mixed responses, so I am hoping someone on this forum can enlighten me. I have a 2007 Camry 4 cyl with about 154K miles on it and I have two questions. 1. I had the transmission power flushed (which I am now reading is bad) at about 100K miles...
  11. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I'm swapping from my 94' 22re 4x4 to a '96 5vzfe 4x4 setup. I've got my new engine & tyranny. I need to know if the old transfer case will fit my new tranny. If not, will the propr transfer case match up with the front wheels' driveshaft? Any help would be appreciated.
  12. Highlander 1st Gen - Hybrid (XU20/2005-2007)
    I bought a '07 AWD HiHy with 95K on it and there are no service records of transmission, differential, or transfer case fluid changes. I'm not sure how these vehicles differ from the non-hybrids. Are all of these fluids serviceable on the hybrid? Can anyone point me to the correct fluids and...

  14. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Hi. We have an '05 Highlander Limited V6 AWD 7 Passenger. It just turned 150K miles and we experienced two losses of Transfer Case Fluid in the past month, resulting in the Transfer Case eating itself Thursday. It has RTV sealant around the ring gear access which looks like where it leaked. It...
  15. T-100 Forum
    I just bought a 98 T100 4wd ExtraCab a few weeks ago. In trying out the 4WD today the truck came to a complete stop when in reverse while in 4H. This does not happen in 2H. Is this a fluid issue or something else? Any help would be appreciated. I have not checked the transfer case fluid or...

    So ive been building an 88 hilux and ive rebuilt my entire long block and added a 5 in suspension lift. When driving down the road i have two vibrations one at 25 mph only on accelleration and one at interstate speeds only in 5th gear. The 25 mph vibration has partially gone away since ive added...
