Understanding Differentials and Why They Must be Serviced

The differential is generally one of the least understood components of a vehicle, however, this gearbox is a key cog in the effective operation of any car. Located between the drive wheels, differentials work in tandem with the transmission to distribute power to the axle from the car's engine. It is the lubricating fluid inside of the differential that preserves the life of the gearbox and keeps everything running smoothly, while also enabling control while making turns. This essential fluid begins to break down after time and must be replaced at regular intervals to avoid costlier repairs later down the road.

We understand that understanding the workings of the differential can be overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be! We invite you to stop by our Volvo service shop in Delray Beach and let our expertly trained associates service your differential so you don't have to worry. We look forward to serving you today!
