What is a Differential and Does it Need to be Serviced?

The more you know about your vehicle and all the parts that work together to keep it running properly, the better you can keep your vehicle maintained. And the more regularly your vehicle is serviced, the less time and money you will have to spend on costly repairs.

One of the perhaps lesser known parts of your vehicle is the differential, and you will usually find it between either the front or back tires underneath your car. The differential is a box with gears, and its job is to help deliver power to the drive wheels. Differential fluid helps keep the gears running smoothly, and it needs to be changed when it becomes dirty to avoid serious problems due to excessive friction.

Our trained automotive service staff here at Bowman Auto Center can check out your differential, change the fluid, and make any repairs your vehicle might need. Give us a call or drop by today.
