The differential is a mechanism that takes the power of the engine and transfers it to the wheels.  It also allows your car to turn smoothly.  You probably don’t think about it, but as you turn, the outside wheel needs to turn faster than the inside wheel in order to keep up with it.  The differential facilitates these turning variations.

Differential Problem Warning Signs:

  • Being Overdue for Recommended Gear Oil Service
  • Whining or Howling Sounds
  • Jerking or Slipping Transmission
  • Burning Smell

Each vehicle has its own maintenance specifications with regard to the differential. Insufficient lubricant will cause excessive wear on bearings and gears. The certified technicians at Galson Auto & Body can expertly maintain and repair any issues with this system.
