A transfer case is a component of four-wheel drive (4WD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles that transfer power from the engine to the front and rear axles. The transfer case is located between the engine and the transmission.

The transfer case also includes a differential, which allows each axle to rotate at different speeds. Proper maintenance of the transfer case ensures that the 4WD or AWD system works properly when you need it most. Most 4x4 and AWD vehicles have a two-speed transfer case. It allows the driver to select between "high range" and "low range." The high range is typically used for on-road driving, while the low range is used for off-road driving.

Most transfer cases are manual, meaning the driver must select the desired range or position. However, some new vehicles have electronic transfer cases that allow the driver to select the desired range or position with the push of a button.
