Have you had your transfer cases inspected yet by Pro-Tech Transmissions Ltd., the premier transmission and transfer cases repair shop in Edmonton, Canada?
Transfer cases are a part of a four wheel drive system found in all four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. Transfer cases are connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.
Transfer cases are important while driving around the Edmonton, Canada region, for they serve the following important functions in a transmission:
- The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. On some vehicles, such as four wheel drive trucks or vehicles intended for off-road use, this feature is controlled by the driver. The driver can put the transfer case into either "two wheel drive" or "four wheel drive" mode. On other vehicles this may be electronically operated by a switch, or a transfer case may be permanently "locked" into all-wheel-drive mode.
- While on a paved road, transfer cases synchronize the difference between the rotation of the front and rear wheels, in much the same way the differential acts on a given axle.
- Transfer cases designed for off-road use can mechanically lock the front and rear axles when needed, like when one of the axles is on a slippery surfaces or stuck in mud, whereas the other has better traction.
- The transfer case may contain one or more sets of low range gears which slow down the vehicle and increase the torque available at the axles. Low-range gears are used during slow-speed or extreme off road maneuvers, such as rock crawling, or when pulling a heavy load.
