I can't find anything in my workshop manual on the extension case. Maybe only certain countries are offered a 2wd version and my workshop manual is European

Take a good look around the bottom of all transmission parts, looking for drain plugs.
This should give you an idea if you are missing some oil to change.

Oh that's a new one! So that's the extension case? Will have to look under my truck and try to identify parts and drain/ fill plugs

Can someone tell me what fluid this part uses? Already replaced trans fluid and while it may be a bit smoother I didn't notice any other changes, old fluid was brown but no metallic pieces so I guess that's not bad at all.





On a side note I ordered part #09168-12002 which I thought it was the washer for the trans pan but I guess I was wrong... Does someone have the correct part #? I'll be doing another two changes in the following weeks to be sure all the old oil is out.

I presume GL-4 gear oil as a conventional transfer case would use, as there are no hypoid type (differential style) gears employed here.

So I'm a bit confused here...

My owner's manual says my transmission uses 2.5 lts (5 pints) of fluid but when I drained it I got almost a gallon out (3.5 lts maybe), checked level before draining and wasn't overfilled.

Old trans fluid: Almost a gallon


So where's this extra lt coming from?

The extension case says it only takes 0.47lts (1 pint), is that correct...?

What oil retrieval method did you use?

IF just oil from the pan it will be less than if you used the transmission cooler line / trans in operation mode, which the ladder will remove additional torque converter held oil.

And you didn't RUN the engine in any part of this pan draining evolution?

Verify for us what trans type, number of speeds and model number please.
