FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS



The following lubricants should be used:

NP-205


SAE SF 10W-30 Engine Oil
 

NP231/NP241/NP241HD


ATF+3®IIl ATF
 

LEVEL CHECK



See Figures 1, 2 and 3

Position the vehicle on level ground. Remove the transfer case fill plug located on the left side of the transfer case. The fluid level should be up to the fill hole. If lubricant doesn't flow from the hold when the plug is removed, add lubricant until it does run out, then install the plug.

DRAIN AND REFILL



See Figures 1, 2 and 3

The transfer case is serviced at the same time and in the same manner as the transmission. Clean the area around the filler and drain plugs and remove the filler plug on the side of the transfer case. Remove the drain plug on the bottom of the transfer case and allow the lubricant to drain completely.
