I have put 100,000 miles on this truck since I bought it used with 55,000 miles. At 83,000 the trans went so Ammco replaced it, a 1000 miles later the transfer case exploded so I rebuilt it. 70,000 miles later the transfer case blows again so I got one from a junkyard this time. This is with normal driving and no four wheeling. This truck is a piece of junk. Now I noticed that the transmission fuild is 3 quarts low and I just changed it 6000 miles ago. No external leaks but I popped out the fill plug (NOT drain) to the transfer case and it gushes out like 2 quarts of trans fluid. What could be causeing the transmission to be pushing it into the transfer case?

There is a seal in the front of the transfer case that must be leaking.

What keeps the trans fluid from coming out of the transmission? Something has failed to allow fluid to leave the trans and make it into the transfer case.

The tailhousing of the trans seals by gasket against the face of the transfer case.The input shaft {planetary gear} of the transfer case has its own seal.If trans fluid is getting from the trans into the transfer case then something is leaking in the front of the transfer case .It cant be the fault of the tranny.

How can you say it can't be the fault of the tranny? If the tranny looses 2 quarts of fluid and the transfer case gains 2 quarts of fluid, it's got to be a seal at the tailhousing. The tailhousing is not sealed by a gasket against the face of the transfer case. It has a coupler or what ever it's called that bolts to the tranny (with gasket) and the other end of it bolts to the transfer case (with gasket). Maybe the ZR2 is different than what your thinking of. I am going to pull it apart maybe this weekend, there has got to be a seal or whatever that seals the shaft and it is leaking and allowing trans fluid to leave the tranny.
