    I finally found my leak in my transfer case the other day it turns out that its not the rear seal that i replaced but that the skid plate under the case rubbed a small hole in the bottom rear half of the case. So i need to fix this problem really quick as im putting a quart of atf in my tranny any time i go any where and its just pissing it out after the oil thins out. would something like jb weld work and will my transfer case be okay???
    thanks for the help :)

    How big is the hole. I have fixed holes in tranny pans and oil pans with JB Weld before. I had good luck with it lasting but I was nervous about it. If the hole is small enough I would think it is worth a try. Just make sure you clean the area very good first.

    if its small it will work, also correct the rubbing issue, replace the worn trans mount or straiten the bent skid plate

    I would pull the t-case(easy -- 1/2 hour job) , flip it so the hole is up(so it won't drip), then scuff the area around it with sandpaper(or similar), spray it with brake clean a couple times, blow it off with air, , then JB Weld it, let it set up good before flipping it over or reinstalling

    you will need at least a quart of ATF(to top off the trans, might need some to fill the t-case as well)
