The Differential: Function and Service

Your car will have one or two differentials. It will have two if it is a four-wheel drive vehicle. The function of the differential is to transfer the power coming from the engine to the axles so that the wheels will turn. The differential is also what makes it possible for your vehicle to turn corners effectively.

The differential in your vehicle has gears that are lubricated with a fluid. The fluid in the differential needs to be changed on a regular basis. You should follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations on how often to change the differential fluid. If you notice any leaks from the differential, or if the differential is making s grinding noise, you should get it checked out right away.

For differential service and repair, contact the service department of National Auto Plaza. The service technicians are able to perform a wide range of auto services.
