Differential Service

BENEFITS OF REGULAR SERVICE

  • Protects ring and pinion gears from premature wear, rust and corrosion
  • Protects clutch plates in limited slip differentials
  • Reduces heat levels inside the differential
  • Reduces friction levels between ring and pinion
  • Keeps pinion and differential bearings lubricated

The last junction before engine power is transferred to the wheels is in your car's differential. Your car's metal ring and pinion gears are meshing against each other every time your wheels rotate. To ensure that these expensive metal components are well protected, it's important to have the differential gear oil checked and changed at recommended intervals.

Old or contaminated fluid loses its ability to protect the metal components and clutch plates in your differential. This can lead to worn or even broken ring and pinion gears, leaving your car immobile.
