Ok Guys - bought my first jeep (97 wrangler 4 cly manual, 112K miles) - all seems to be in working order. Replaced, plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, oil filter and air cleaner.
Only problem is it appears either the transfer case or the rear seal (if there is one) on the transmission is leaking (skid plate wet) - checked transmission fluid level and that seems fine so I assume it's the transfer case (assumption here is that the transfer case does not share fluid with the transmission)
How/Where do I check transfer case fluid level? (is it similar to the manual transmission fluid check [side fill plug]) and does it take the same fluid?
My assumption is that I'll have to jack the transmission to move / remove the skid plate to get to the transfer case if indeed it's the source of the leak (and needs to be resealed) - will also check what I read in another post about the speedo cable (is it in the rear area of the transmission)
thanks for any thought on the fun that awaits...
