or 30mm

Takes from 1/2 to a qt to change the case they run
ATF in your 94 same as trans

I went to the Amsoil universal syn in mine about
20,000 miles ago and changed it twice, 1000 miles
than again to let the syn clean out all the
deposits because it never all comes out when you
drain them

I change the transfer cases at 50,000 light duty

If you run it hard in 4 wheel more often 25,000

All you need is the fluid ATF there are 2 big
plugs on the back of the case, a drain and a fill
level with bottom of fill plug is full

As I said they don't hold a lot of fluid, less
than a Qt

Run it in 4 low a little while to get it nice and
warm than just drain and refill

Is the transfer plug drain plug/fill plug size the same on my 99 Dak 3.9 Auto 4x4?

30mm or 1 3/16...

As well do I need to use ATF in this case as well?

Thanks in advance for your help

Just to post so others will know that the drain/fill plug size for the 1998 and 2000 Dakota NV231 Transfer-Case (I presume the year 1999 is the same) is a 10MM recessed Allen Hex head and you will need a 10 MM Allen Hex wrench or socket.

Dave B. - Thanks for the tip on the hex socket! I was beginning to think I was the only one with this type of transfer case. Why the %^*# would Dodge use this type of fitting for the fill/drain plugs? No love for DIY'ers! By the way... mines a '99, so your assumption is correct.
