Default Transfer case leaking and smoking?

Havent driven my truck in a week or so cuz of a suspended license.....anyways went to check my truck out today and looks like the sealent is falling apart around the transfer case and is leaking fluid iv read that the only way to add fluid into the transfer case is to take the hole thing out and take it apart and add fluid?? not sure never had problems with the T-case so i dont know. And now i got a lot of white smoke comin out of my flowmaster's at start up and whenever i rev it up but just letting it run by itself idleing it doesnt have that much smoke coming out but also theres a lot of water coming out of it, it's not coolant it's clear iv checked and it is not blue smoke it's white just to make that clear anyone know what might be goin on here? maybe a leak in the exausht somewhere im just confused thanks

that water is just condensation and the white smoke is normal. its steam from the warmer exhaust hitting the cooler mourning air.

And just to be clear, the TC and exhaust smoke are in no way related. Now there are ways to remove fluid and re fill it with it in the truck, but if you dont have the pump good luck with that. Most shops can do it though. I would drop it and rebuild it if the gasket is going bad anyways. It is cheap and VERY easy to do. If you need help finding a rebuild kit let me know.

No he meant smell the smoke. If you are burning coolant it will have a "sweet" smell to it.

And what year is your truck. Or better yet if you know it what TC do you have?

if its deff smoke thats what i would say. check yer anti freeze reservoir see if its getting lower from when u last looked.

if so it could be a warped head or head gasket is leaking coolant from the water jackets to the cylinders.
