Transfer case seal leaking on 99 dodge cummins

6 posts in this topic

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?

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
