Servicing and Tips for Differentials
The differential is an essential part of your car. Without it, turning corners in your vehicle would be difficult. The differential gives the wheels of your car or truck the capability to turn at different rates. Because the inside wheel travels a shorter distance when a car turns, the car needs a differential.
All vehicles have differentials of some kind. In front wheel drive vehicles the differential is in the front and called a transaxle. In rear-wheel drive vehicles, the differential is in the back. Four wheel drive vehicles have differentials in both the front and back.
The differential contains fluid that lubricates and cools the gears. As with any other lubricant, differential fluid breaks down over time. Along with the engine, the differential is very particular about its oil and condition.
Servicing and Tips for Transfer Cases (4WD)
The transfer case takes power from the transmission and splits it between output shafts that connect to the front and rear driveshafts. The transfer case is what makes all wheel drive work.
Transfer cases are either gear driven or chain driven. Most of the transfer cases made today are chain driven because these Transfer cases are quieter and lighter.
Servicing is limited to oil changes at the recommended intervals.
- The transfer case is always working, whether you use the four wheel drive on your vehicle or not. Your transfer case fluid level should be checked every time that you get an oil change.
- In the old days, transfer cases were filled with gear oil or automatic transmission fluid (ATF), but some modern transfer cases take specialty lubricants.
- It is important with permanent 4WD vehicles that all tyres are the same brand, size and wear level as a difference in circumference can increase wear in the unit or at minimum a knock or harshness on lock.
- Selectable 4WD’s generally are designed for use on soft or slippery surfaces only and not for general road use
