What is the Differential in My Vehicle?

May 8th, 2018 by

Depending on your vehicle, you may have one or two differentials helping to power your ride. The differential contains fluids that are important for lubricating the gears and from keeping them from getting too heated to the point they can become damaged.

If you do considerable driving in your vehicle, not only is the differential helping to keep the gears to the transmission lubricated, the gears are working hard when you turn the steering wheel as well. Low fluid could expose the gears and increase the chances of them becoming damaged.

Once the fluid inside the housing is contaminated or low, it exposes the gears and could lead to failure. If the gears are not running smoothly, the added heat they generate could cause them to grind to a halt.

Bring your vehicle to Germain Honda of Dublin so we can service the differential so your ride does not experience issues moving forward.
