Dealer quote for Front/Rear diff service and transfer case service

Drain Front/Rear Diffs and transfer case. Refill with synthetic oil. They quoted 269.00. They also stated if it's not done at factory spec intervals powertrain warranty is void.

So if I use the dealer it's 269 every 15k miles or goodbye warranty.

Is 269 a ripoff?

the mechanics at my dealership said you can do all the maintanence yourself, just be sure to keep the receipts to provide documentation of your purchases.. Is it really factory recommendations to change those every 15k?? that doesn't sound right at all!!

And Yes!! $269.00 is a complete ripoff. If you dont want to change it yourself take it to your local independent mech.. Cost should be half of that or lower

Sounds like a good deal, I had the power train reworked on mine, they indicated to me that had I not done proper maintenance and showed proof it would have been on my Nickle! Oh, and welcome to the forum!

im looking at the schedule b maintennace intervals. Every 15k miles drain and fill the front and rear axles.

Wierd though. For schedule a there is no mention of draining the front and rear axles, but there is mention of draining the transfer case every 30,000 miles.

The dealer can't force you to get any maintenance or repairs done by them alone ... (that's against the law) ...

As long as the work is done to industry standards and ... with fluids and parts that meet the factory specs the warentee is still good ... it's the law.

If you have the QTII system then you will need to buy the transfer case fluid at the dealer no matter what. The other fluids you can get anywhere else but if you have the limited slips then you need to add a friction modifier to the fluids in the differentials. The t-case fluid should be about $12-$18 per quart bottle and you will need 2-3 if its the QTII. The QTI will use regular ATF+4 in the t-case and you will not need the friction modifier in the diffs. The $270 is a lot of money for an easy job that can be done in about 1-2hrs in your driveway
