Keep Your Differential Oil Topped Off with  the Service Team at Patterson Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Tyler

Many parts and fluids help your vehicle continue to run smoothly every day. Some are well known, while others you may never have heard of. Differential fluid might fall into the latter category, prompting some drivers to not know when or why they need to get it replaced routinely. Our service experts are available to help you with any of your service needs, and we'll gladly show you the importance of your differential fluid, as well!

Your differential fluid is designed to help you take corners without much issue, as it compensates for the difference in distance that the inner and outer wheels travel as you take a corner. If both your wheels rotated together, going around a corner would be jerky and inconsistent because your outside wheels travel farther than the inside ones.

Differential oil sometimes referred to as gear oil, is found in the housing for your axles. It's typically thicker than engine oil and should perform well under high pressure. It's designed to lubricate your gears, bearings, and clutch packs, and it cools and lubricates your differential to ensure that you avoid metal-to-metal contact. Without it, your differential would overheat and burn out, causing you to pay for extensive repairs.

Why Should You Get Your Differential Fluid Changed Routinely?

Typically, we recommend that you get your differential fluid change every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. If you wait too long, you might begin to hear whining or howling as you take corners, indicating that your differential fluid has started to wear down. You should always refer to your owner's manual when it comes to any service, as it contains a specific schedule for you to stick to.
