If this is the first time you’ve looked into getting your differential fluid (also known as differential oil) replaced, you’re not alone. Fortunately, when it comes to this oft-overlooked lubricant, our certified experts have you—and your differential—covered.
How do I know I need my differential fluid checked?
Our service starts with a free inspection of your vehicle’s rear differential fluid (the liquid that keeps your rear differential gears and rear axle running smoothly). If the fluid is contaminated or in otherwise poor condition, our technicians will let you decide whether you would like to proceed with a differential fluid change. If you choose to continue, we will carefully replace it in accordance with your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
Normal driving subjects differential fluid to high temperatures, which eventually break down the fluid and increase the heat and friction between the gears. Changing differential fluid is a commonly overlooked scheduled service that, when done routinely, can help maintain the life of your differential gears, so your car and your life can both keep running smoothly.
Recommendations vary between vehicle manufacturers and models. Motorist Assurance Program guidelines recommend referring to your vehicle owner's manual for replacement and/or service.
