What is a Differential?

When you notice that your car isn't running as smoothly as it used to, it could be your differentials. These are located with your axles whether in the front or back. If you have an all-wheel drive, you'll have differentials in the front and rear. When you get your tires rotated and balanced, you should also get your differentials and differential oil levels checked.

The differential oil helps keep your axles running smoothly. All cars use differentials to ensure that axles move consistently and run at the same speeds, whether you are taking a turn with the inside wheel moving faster or changing speeds at rapid paces.
