The Importance of Differential Service

If you want to keep your vehicle in good condition, we can help at Matt Burne Honda in Scranton. There are many components that make up your vehicle, and a differential is important for several reasons.

A differential is found between the drive wheels of your automobile. Most automobiles that have four-wheel drive are equipped with a front and rear differential. A differential works with your vehicle's transmission system to transfer power from the engine to the axle of the wheels, and it also enables your vehicle to turn. The outside wheels must rotate faster than the inside wheels for a vehicle to turn, and a differential uses gears so that the wheels can turn at different speeds.

Lubricating fluid is used to help your differential function properly. It is important to change the lubricating fluid routinely because it will break down over time. If you do not have the lubricating fluid changed, it can lead to friction and grinding.
