What is a Differential?

Although we can preach how important it is to get your car’s differential repaired, it won’t mean anything if you don’t know what a differential is. A rear differential helps direct power to the back two wheels of your vehicle, as it connects to the transmission via a driveshaft. It essentially helps you let the tires know whether you want to move forward and backward, so this system must be properly functioning. Like any component or system in your car, the differential requires consistent service and maintenance to perform properly, and any neglect can hamper its performance. But along with that, it’s also helpful to understand when the differential is experiencing problems. Doing so allows you to prevent a problem from worsening, which could help you avoid the costlier differential replacement service. Here are a couple of warning signs you should look out for:

Loud Noises -- If you hear a howling sound from your car, it’s a sign that something may be wrong with the differential. This will vary based on the load place on the differential and the problem severity, so it’s best to have it checked by a professional who can properly evaluate the issue.

Leaks -- Another common problem, a leaking differential typically comes from the pinion seal, axle seals, or the differential cover. You’ll notice the leak is from the differential if it’s at the rear of your vehicle and if the fluid is grayish or has a light brown color. Make sure to act quickly, as the severity of the leak will vary. Acting sooner could save the differential and keep money in your wallet.
