2001 Excursion 7.3 transfer case fluid
« on: April 20, 2021, 04:44:09 PM »
The seal from my transmission to transfer case is broken and leaking. How bad is this if I keep adding transmission fluid Mercon V.  What is recommended transfer case fluid to use? Thank you! Some people saying mercon Ford says motorcraft xl-12. But assuming Iím leaking tranny fluid into transfer case what should I be topping off with in tranny? When I pull check plug on transfer case tranny fluid is pouring out.

Leaks do not get better with time and miles, at some point it will eat the trans and maybe the transfer case as well.  :twocents:

Whetever works in the transmission will work in the transfer case,transfer case is not as picky as the transmission.

From a trusted X-Ford Transmission engineer.

"You may use either conventional or synthetic ATF, as long as it is rated MERCON or MERCON V. Your Ownerís Guide says to not use MERCON V, but Ford changed that in 2006."

Mercon V in the transmission or the t case.

Or LV.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
