There are many components that make your vehicle run properly, and we like to keep our consumers informed about their vehicles at San Leandro Honda. A differential is a piece of equipment that helps your wheels turn correctly.

A differential is housed between the drive wheels. If you have a vehicle with a four-wheel drive system, it probably has a front and rear differential. A differential and transmission work together to transfer power from the engine to the axle of the wheels. It also helps your vehicle turn. The inside wheels have to move slower than the outside wheels during a turn, and a differential uses gears to allow the wheels to rotate at different speeds.

Your vehicle's differential uses lubricating fluid to move heat away from the gears. Its lubricating fluid should be changed regularly to prevent grinding and friction. When the lubricating fluid isn't changed, it could lead to serious damage that is expensive to repair.
