Default Transfer Case Fluid Type

Do you use the ATF +4 in the 241 transfer case ? It is a Ram 2500 with the 5.9 Cummins, 4 X 4.

Thanks in advance

Yeah, use ATF+4.

And the reason for that is, if the seal(s) between the transmission and transfer case start to leak, the transmission fluid wouldnt become contaminated with a different fluid.

Change the Transfer Case fluid every time you change the Transmission fluid.

The previous spec, ATF+3, is compatible with ATF+4.

This is a question that could have easily been answered by doing a search.
