|Take Care of your Differential|
Gear oil lubricated differentials are found in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive pick-up trucks and SUV's, as well as in rear wheel drive passenger cars and vans. Although periodic replacement of the gear oil is specified by vehicle manufacturers to maintain the performance and longevity of the differential, this is probably the most commonly overlooked service in personal transportation. With the growing number of pick-up trucks and SUV's on the road, it is important that differential fluid service gets the attention it deserves.
Manufacturer's recommend servicing the Differential at various intervals - most commonly between 15,000 and 100,000 miles.
Cost of the service is $50.00 and usually takes under 15 minutes to complete.
A new differential can cost over $1,500- so a little preventive maintenance may save you in the long run!!
