Seepage from transfer case
Transfer case needed to be refurbished due to this -- new case part was extremely expensive and NOT available by Chrystler. Had car towed to opposite side of the city as the repair place understood and offered to rebuild existing if possible. this was the result - total job savings of anywhere from $400 (used) to $1,200 (new). RECOMMENDED changing the Transfer Case Oils every 40K to keep in top condition...
