Power tranfer Unit
I have not seen this anywhere here so I have to ask, has anyone had to replace their power transfer unit (transfer case) in their R/T AWD. Mine is a 2007, I bought it used from a dealer. Had it checked by a trusted mechanic when I got it and it was in great shape. Now 2 yrs later, I was told I had main seal leak and it would be $575.00. I got the car serviced at the dealer where I bought it (not a Dodge dealer) and was going to make an appointment for the seals and now they tell me it's not the seal but the entire transfer case needs to be replaces for $2200.00 because of the leak.
it seems unusual, and after checking the servive manual there are at least 3 seals associated with it, youd think they would be what causes the leak.
I still need to get a 2nd & 3rd opinion, but the closest Dodge dealer is 60 miles away. I am going to take it to the place that used to be a jeep dealer and let then look at it as they still have alot of their Chrysler guys there.
