    It's technically 2 liters, which is a little over 2 quarts. If you go to the dealer, they sell special transfer case juice in liter bottles, but they use them in every make/model out there, and they all just recommend ATF.

    Yes it will be fine, Dodge's say use their special ATF also, it's the same case, so I have to beleive that, in the end, it doesn't matter so much.

    I realized this will be fine for the t-case... I forgot I was also intending this to go into the trans, will this mix okay with dexron VI? If that's what's in it, with the new converter I read that it should have come with VI already in it..

    Honestly, I doubt it will matter, but for safeties sake, I wouldn't mix backwards. I'd put Dex 4 in a Dex 3 unit, but not vice versa.

    So, i'd like to ask for opinions here. I bought a truck with a bad engine in it back in April. I just got the engine back in, and started driving it around. Truck has a whine coming from the drive train above about 35mph. IT gets really bad around 55-60mph. This morning on my way to school, the transfer case blew up. What would cause it (the transfer case) to do that?! And is that even a sound a transfer case would make, or might it be from the axles? Also, the truck is a '98 K1500 with a 5.7l, a 4l60(e?) and the Z71 package. It would have an NP243, right? Thanks.
