I'm not 100% about 04 model, but earlier models use engine oil in the transfer case on a lot of Rodeos. I believe some even use engine oil in the gearbox too. Just be careful of the filler plug housing on the gearbox, they sometimes tend to strip easy :eek:

Normally the oils in the engine, gearbox, transfer case and diff's are different in most vehicles. Get a workshop manual or consult the user manual for your Rodeo. Call the local dealer workshop they should be able to confirm it.
