Today I plan to change the fluid in the transfer case on the truck. Even picked up a fluid pump from Menards for $5.99. Can't beat that.

Ohh, post 700 in this thread.

Sounds like you're king for the day.

My Caddy acted up yesterday and feared for the worst. I checked my oil and it was fine. Before I put the dipstick back, I noticed a spark plug wire came off from the distributor. Then it ran great.

Picked up a new shop toy today. Figured because I was changing the transfer case fluid I would get this to make life easier.



The plugs decided they didn't want to come out, but I finally got them. Fluid came out rather black.


Then I pumped it back up.


All in all, a easy job.

That ATF fluid looks really bad.

I just remember, I got 2 new "free flowing" cats for my truck today.
