    Differential Fluid Change

    Understanding Differential Fluid

    Differential fluid lubricates the differential in all-wheel drive (AWD), four-wheel drive (4WD), rear-wheel drive (RWD), and front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles. Typically, front-wheel drive vehicles have a transaxle instead of a separate differential, but some FWD vehicles do have a stand-alone differential. The differential’s purpose is to deliver power to the wheels while allowing them to turn at different speeds. As your vehicle makes a turn, each wheel covers a different distance. The wheels on the inside of the turn travel a shorter distance than the wheels on the outside. Similarly, the front wheels travel a different distance than the back wheels. The differential allows your vehicle to turn smoothly despite these differences, and differential fluid keeps the moving parts of the differential lubricated. Clean differential fluid is essential to ensure a smooth ride at all times.

    Why You Need Differential Fluid Change Services at GM Specialist

    Differential fluid reduces the heat caused by friction inside the differential. However, friction and heat will gradually break down the differential fluid. Worn-out differential fluid can lead to poor performance, noise, excessive wear, and even breakdown or failure. Complete differential failure means the entire differential system will need to be replaced, which is costly. To avoid this, refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the proper service intervals for changing your differential fluid. During a differential fluid service, we drain out the old fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. Additionally, our service staff may inspect other differential components, such as gears and shafts, for excessive wear to ensure the differential continues to work properly.
