PTU. It is always turning the rear drive shaft. The rear diff has special motors that engage the rear wheels when needed.

Ford didn't start putting drain plugs in the PTU until 2014, and then only on certain models.
I have a 14 and drilled and tapped my own. Best to do it before 100k miles, some say sooner and on that same frequency. The fluid is not lifetime like ford says as the gear oil burns up and causes failure and exploding PTUs.
