What's a Differential For?

The differential is an important component of your vehicle. It allows your vehicle's wheels to turn at different speeds in relation to one another. This is especially important and necessary for your car to go around corners. Without the differential allowing for different wheel speeds, great stress would be placed on the car making it extremely difficult to drive.

The differential has gears inside that are lubricated by differential oil. This oil protects the gears during operation. Over the course of time, the oil can get dirty making it less effective in protecting the gears. The oil in the differential should be changed on a regular basis per the manufacturer's recommendations. If you hear a grinding noise coming from the differential, seek service sooner.

When it's time for your car to have differential service, contact the team at Auto Express Fiat of Erie. Our service center can change the differential oil and diagnose any problems and provide repairs.
