Differential Fluid Service Santa Rosa, CA
Your vehicle’s differential is a function of the drivetrain that works with your transmission to bring power from the engine to the axle that actually turns the wheels. Differential fluid inside the differential helps to transfer heat away from the drivetrain gears, which protects components from overheating and corroding. This helps to avoid drivetrain parts from becoming damaged and ensures that your vehicle runs smoothly. At West Coast Automotive in Santa Rosa, CA, we staff ASE certified technicians that are experienced and trained to work on all makes and models of vehicles.
With regular use of your vehicle, the differential fluid will eventually break down and become dirty. When you use your vehicle, a ton of heat is emitted from the engine and all of the fluids help to control that heat. Most vehicle manufacturers will recommend differential fluid services at regular intervals; however, we recommend at least every couple of years. The frequency of the service will also depend on your personal driving habits. Although fluid services are often overlooked, they are simple services that will actually help you avoid major costly repairs down the road and maintain a healthy vehicle.
