Transfer case seal leaking on 99 dodge cummins

Question

countryboy9799

It's a new process transfer case, model number 241 DLD

I had this replaced under warranty about 30K, I have just under 100K now and the front shaft seal going to the front differential is leaking. Can anyone give me some idea's as to why this is happening again? It seems to me I shouldn't be having this problem so soon.

Also how hard of a fix is this? I would like to do it myself.

I should add that I checked the fluid and it was up to the top but it need's to be fixed.

The front differential shaft is also leaking going back to the transfer case to. Any idea on how hard this is to replace?

Scott

Something isn't true (out of round) I'm guessing.

That thought came to my mind too. Another thing is maybe a vent plugged?

If it is leaking at the front differential and the transfer case I would have that drive shaft checked as it could be out of balance or just a bad u-joint.

Key word is leaking or seeping. Diff's will seep at one time or another. I have seen many out put shaft seals leak (It may be because I worked at a dodge dealer for last 3 years). Boths seal are not hard to replace. They pay under an hour and a half for both. I would look more at yoke surface to see if it has grove in it or rust, that is tearing seal. I saw more of this than out of balance shaft's. I only can remember one case of out of balance shaft replacment. That was on rear drive shaft though. A seal is cheap, shafts are not.

It did have a drip on it so I think that would be leaking slightly. What kind of work is it for a DIY'er to do it.

The way it looks to me I would need to drain the transfer case.

Then unbolt the shaft and pull the yoke out.

Would I just pry the seal out and install a new one?

Any special seal or just get it at a bearing place?

I guess if it isnt to hard and it lasted me this long I could do it every couple of years. I dont feel any vibration so I do question if its out of round.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
