Why Do You Need an Optimal Differential for Your Vehicle?

Your car’s differential receives power generated by your engine and transmits it to the drive axles for your wheels to rotate. When you make turns, your differential enables the outside wheels to rotate faster than the inside wheels. When you have an optimal differential, it will:

  • Help your vehicle improve traction
  • Extend the life of tires
  • Increase your fuel economy
  • Make your automobile safe to drive

The reasons listed above are sufficient to note that your differential must be in good working condition so your vehicle has increased longevity and mileage.

Differential Repair in Edmonton

Unless you are a gearhead, you may not be aware of a little piece of machinery in your vehicle known as the differential.

When your car turns, the outside wheels have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside. This means, the outside wheels need to spin slightly faster than the ones on the inside of the turn or else the vehicle could pull itself apart. The piece of machinery that makes it possible to divide two separate torques is called the differential.

The differential is found in most vehicles, especially any vehicles that boast an all-wheel or four-wheel drive feature. And because this gearbox is in charge of converting engine power and its transmission to the wheels, allowing them to turn at varying speeds, it is incredibly important that your vehicle’s differentials get regular maintenance and repairs whenever they start squealing.

At Delta Automotive, we have been fixing and replacing differentials in all makes and models of vehicles for years. Whether you need a full-scale repair or some minor maintenance, do not put off booking your appointment with Delta Automotive today. A short phone call to us can be the difference between arriving safely to your destination or not…

Signs Your Differential Needs Repairs

A few telltale signs that your differential needs repairs include:

  • Whirring noises while decelerating to or driving at speeds that exceed 15 mph
  • Rumbling sounds that begin when your vehicle is traveling faster than 15 mph
  • Clunking sounds are persistent and pervasive
  • High-pitched howling is heard when accelerating
  • Banging or skipping occurs when turning a corner

If one or more of these symptoms accurately describes your vehicle, it is a pretty clear indication that there is something not right. If so, bring your car to Delta Automotive as soon as you possibly can. Not only will our experienced and courteous Edmonton staff find the issue plaguing your differential, we will also run a full diagnostic on the suspension and steering components of your vehicle.

Differential Maintenance

Because a vehicle cannot function without a working differential, it is important that you get your differential checked and the differential fluid changed every time you take your vehicle in for maintenance.

The frequency of differential maintenance varies depending on the vehicle, as well as how long it’s been off the lot and how much mileage has been put on its odometer. For more details on the kind of maintenance program your vehicle may need, please contact one of our mechanics today to get their trusted assessment.

An alternative to bringing your vehicle for differential maintenance is to regularly check your vehicle’s differential fluid levels. When differential fluid levels are low, the vehicle’s gears can overheat and wear down prematurely. If you need any assistance figuring out how this is done, please contact us today.

Front and Rear Axle Repairs 

The lifespan of a well-installed differential is approximately 150,000 miles, assuming regular vehicle usage and a decent maintenance schedule. Regular maintenance should include removing oil, cleaning internal components, and refilling the oil with a fresh supply. This is because oils break down over time and pick up grime and other elements that reduce its ability to provide optimal lubrication. 

Generally, we recommend having this type of maintenance performed every 20,000-40,000 miles, but this can vary depending on several factors. For this reason, we suggest speaking to our differential specialists to personalize your services to your vehicle’s needs. 

Some of the most common front and rear axle repairs we perform have included:

  • Pinion bearing replacement 
  • Pinion seal replacement 
  • Yoke replacement
  • Bushing replacement
  • Differential leak repairs 
  • Diff gasket replacement 
  • Differential reconditioning 

If you’re unsure which part of your rear or front end is causing the problem, call us. We are happy to help. With years of dedicated service under our belts, there are no better differential specialists to work with to solve any problem.
