NV140 Transfer Case Fluid

Ok so I just did an oil change and replaced the rear diff fluid on my 3.7L commander. Did it for around $60 myself all synthetic. I bought my commander used. And it's at about 43,000 mi now. I changed the rear diff fluid because it was very dirty almost black. I assume the front is the same so I will be doing that soon. Can I change the transfer case fluid myself too? What about the transmission fluid, and filter? I bought it with 35,000 miles and I don't think any major services were done.

It's been hard for me to find any info on the 3.7L.

Yes you can change the transfer case fluid yourself. Its really easy.

I have not changed my transmission fluid/filters yet.

Transfer case drain plug torque: 15-25 ft.

I moved your question to this thread, read it from the beginning and you will find the information very helpful.

I think this thread is more for the NV245 transfer case which uses Mopar Transfer Case Fluid and what fluid we could use instead of the Mopar Trasnfer Case Fluid. He has the NV140 which uses Mopar ATF +4

Thanks! I will make a thread for each transfer case. I am glad you knew the difference.

NV140 Transfer Case Fluid

This thread is a split off from the original "transfer case fliud?" thread and covers the NV140 transfer case discussion.

From reading the other thread the consensus seems to be that the Mopar fluid ATF +4 9602 is the ONLY fluid that should be used correct? Other brands are not recommended?

With your transfer case, any ATF +4 can be used. I would highly recommend using Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF +4.

Now for those of us with the NV245 Transfer Case (4.7 L & 5.7 L) it is recommended to only use Mopar Transfer Case Fluid.
