I noticed online that my model year can develop pinholes in the transfer case and leak out all the oil.

I will have the trans out to replace with a new one next week. Since its going to be out, I want to be proactive and take steps to prevent a leak later on when the tranny is installed and I am far from home. I have seen a few types of kits online and on youtube. It looks very easy.

Question: Which is the easiest kit and most reliable?

Thank you ahead for your advice.

I'm confused. How long would it take for "all the oil" to leak out thru pinholes? "Far from home" as in transfer unit oil is not available? I was picturing something that would take months, if not years to be an issue.

He probably has the NVG 246 transfer case. I believe SteveJB is referring to the issue where the pump movement in the transfer case wears a hole in the case. I think the hole is exposed to pump pressure and the fluid is pumped out.

I have never installed the upgrade myself so no help from me SteveJB on how easy it is.

Hi Rollover,

You got it. I want to make the repair so I don't have to worry about it again. Especially since the case will be out when I have the new tranny put in. I was wondering if there is a kit that is better than others that could get.
