08 Transfer Case Rear Oil Seal Leaking

Postby HammerDown [OP] » Feb 20 2011, 1:36am

Looks like the rear oil seal is leaking on my transfer case. Saw a puddle on the garage floor. Took a look and fluid is dripping from the black rubber gasket where the driveshaft enters. Normally, I'd tackle this type of thing myself, but due to the time of year and lack of heat in my garage I'm going to bring it in.

Any idea how much this might cost me (or should cost ballpark)? And is this a normal wear and tear thing to keep an eye out for on Chevy Silverados? First time buyer.

With the seal and labor you are looking at around $100. Its common spot to leak but have them make sure the yoke and bushing is good.

i would say just take it in and get it looked at cuz 100$ now can cost a pretty penny down the road if negleted. im sure its maybe just a bolt or screw that needs to be tightened. cuz its still pretty new im sure its nothing to big. but im with Katjar503 i would go in and get all that stuff checked out.have u gone off roading latley and bottemed out pretty good?

I haven't wheeled it at all yet. And it doesn't look like it ever was. I gotta a guy who's pretty good at fixing things for cheap. I can deal with $100 at this point. I'll have him check the other stuff mentioned as well. Thanks

Just wanted to update the thread...I took it to a local dealership just to ask some questions about the truck and the tech. told me the seal would be covered under the 5yr/100k drivetrain warranty. Made an appointment and got it fixed for $0.

Only problem is it is still leaking. Took a look and it appears the rubber gasket is crooked. There is a metal flange that also doesn't look like it was seated correctly. Back I go.

Make them throw in something for your time. It may be free, but you are going to spend a $100 in gas running back and forth! Which dealer are you using? Please don't say Merit Chevrolet....

Yes,sir. Merit Chev. Fortunately I live a couple blocks away. Not a biggie to get there. Haven't had a chance to get back yet. Shooting for next week when I have some time off.

I live a few blocks away from Merit, too (small world, eh?). I've used them several times, but haven't been too impressed with their service. Well, as long as it's under the warranty, and they don't start charging you, and they finally get it right, then you're set... but I wouldn't count on Merit.

Minnesota guys! That place (Merit) changed hands a while back and is AWFUL!!! Stay away, please. If you need Chevy specific stuff, go to Stillwater Motors. It's worth the drive (as you now know).
For other repairs in the area, go to Carver General Repair, down on Highwood and Century. Looks like a hole in the wall place, but it's been there for years, and they do fabulous work. Done right the first time.
