What is the Purpose of Your Differential?

It's important these days to actually understand how your vehicle works so that you can stay on top of any maintenance issues. The cost of prevention is generally cheaper than the cost of repair. Your vehicle's differential is a component which requires routine maintenance to avoid major problems later on.

The differential is a gearbox that works, in conjunction with the transmission, to transfer power from the engine to the drive axle. As you can imagine, this function generates a lot of heat. This causes a breakdown of the differential fluid, which requires the fluid be changed on a routine basis to keep things working properly.

Do you feel that your differential is not working as it should? Is it time for the differential fluid to be checked or replaced? If so, come visit us at our Columbus auto service shop. We will take a look at your differential and address any issues that we find.
