Front & Rear Differential Service

A differential allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds, which is necessary when turning your vehicle. Over time, operating temperatures and wear can cause the fluid in the differential to break down. Differential service with a fluid change can help avoid premature wear on the gears in the differential. Some vehicles have both a font and rear differential.

Transfer Case Service

The transfer case is a special gearbox found in four wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles. It sends drive power from the engine to the front and rear axles. In all-wheel-drive vehicles, the transfer case helps to shift power from one axle to another, depending on traction conditions. Lubricating fluid in the transfer case helps keep gears cool and turning smoothly. Replacing this fluid at appropriate intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage cause by contaminated or broken-down lubricants.

Manual Transmission Service

Manual transmission fluid provides lubrication to gears, bearings, shafts, and other internal components. Heat, pressure and friction can slowly breakdown the additives in the manual transmission fluid. In addition, small particles of metal may come off the gears as they wear and these metal particles can mix with the fluid. Fluids can become contaminated with water.
