Transfer Case Fluid

97 f-250 7.3l here. About to change out the transfer case fluid and was just wondering what is the capacity and what types of fluids does everyone recommend? Also, anything unexpected that I might discover or is changing the fluid pretty easy. I figure a drain plug and fill plug, right? Thanks for the help.

Also, I am about to change out my transmission fluid and the drain pan I have does not have a drain plug. Do you recommend spending the money on getting a new pan with a plug? If so, which kind do you recommend?

There is no drain plug. I'm not sure what a pan with one goes for but truthfully unless you have the money its not really worth it. Depending how much you drive, what do you change the fluid? Once or twice a year. And I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that the tcase runs off high gear oil.

Do the 4x2s not have them? I have a 00 and 02 van and neither of them have drains on their pans
