Default TransfeCase Hummmms

Well I am new to the truck and need little help. I noticed today a little bit of humming comming from the transfer case and notice some fluid leaking from it. I know i got to fill it up now but is it hard to replace the seals on the t case or something i can do in a day. And how do you know when its full.

Well hopefully it isn't damaged internally . The cases in the 1500's only hold a little over 1 quart of fluid . It doesn't take much to hurt them especially if it has been serviced like it should .

Don't know your t-case, but any I've worked on have a fill hole a few inches from the bottom, and you fill it to that level. If you have your owners manual, check to make sure you are using the correct oil for it. If you don't have the manual, check with your dealer to find out which lube is correct.

As for seals...is it only the front shaft seal that's leaking? Don't know on yours, but some you can replace that seal in about 30 minutes by only removing the front shaft and yoke...but like I said, I don't know on yours, and don't have a service manual for that generation of Ram.

Hopefully someone will be by shortly that is familiar with that t-case can tell you for sure.

Good luck with your repair, and hopefully there is no internal damage from low oil.

Question T-Case Lube

Hi Guys
About the t-case lube. How do you change the lube to refill with new I have a 95 1500 slt 5.9 4x4 Getting a hum myself. Dont have a clue what kind of maint was ever done on this truck. I get this hum after reaching a certain speed and on coast BUT I feel it in the peddles and steering wheel. I have been told it could be the rearend. I would really like to narrow it down and not have to go through process of elimination.

Go buy a Chiltons manual for your truck. It will walk you through all kinds of maintenance things as well as outright repairs and overhauls.

You can usually get them at the auto parts store or online.

And did that take care of your hum ? Don't forget to service your transfer case as recommended . I would recommend to you to use a good quality synthetic tranny oil like Amsoil . I serviced mine late and it scared the hell out of me . It was suppose to be tranny oil in there . It came out looking like a dirty lightweight motor oil . Thank god no damage was done .
