Differential oil—it’s one of the most-overlooked automobile maintenance tasks. Call or email us, we are happy to answer your questions. Because the differential is at the rear and under the car, it gets none of the treatment that the engine does. If lubrication in the differential fails, you won’t be getting very far for very long and will likely be looking at a differential repair. Fortunately, you only need to change this oil every 30,000 to 60,000 miles (as always, check your owner’s manual). If your manual is not available just give us a call and we will be happy to find the answers to your differential questions. Differentials are in most cases pretty dependable but proper maintenance is the key to a long lasting differential.

“Dave and his crew are very knowledgeable I will not go anywhere else for tramsmission issues. My wifes truck wasnt shifting right and i had a mass air flow code so he recommended putting the intake back to stock so i did amd it fixed all my issues. I will recommend these guys to everyone i know they are the best.”
So far so good. Dave is really nice, and gave me a wide range of options to fit my budget. And even the most expensive option was 1000$+ less than others i called. Will update after service is complete… Service complete. They gave a free 10 day checkup. Truck runs o.k. so far
“Once I stepped in the shop, it was nothing but professionalism and the level of customer service that really was unparalleled. Dave worked with me through each step and kept me updated on their progress. The repairs were completed on time and on schedule.
“These guys are great, I brought my 34 ft motorhome in that had been sitting for 4 years and had lost all the transmission fluid. Randy called me the next day and told me the pan bolts were loose… they tightened them, filled it with fluid, test drove it and the total bill… No charge.. good honest trustworthy people you can tell they take pride in their work. I recommend this shop to everyone!! If you need any transmission work done this is definitely the place to bring your vehicle. Thank you Randy and Ron.”
“Best transmission shop ever. I have a hard time trusting my vehicles with anybody but Randy made me feel comfortable and called me every step of the way explaining every detail. His quote was accurate and honest the rebuild was done fast and the van runs like new. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.”
These guys are great. Randy and his team are top notch and I highly recommend them. My Dad was a chevy TH-350 transmission mechanic for years and these guys made sure they explained everything to me and I was confident they were doing the job right. Even after the job was done they followed up, corrected a minor issue (no charge) and even took care of an exhaust pipe that was making noise.

Warning Signs of a Failed Differential
Modern cars are now made with computerized differentials. Of course, nothing is full proof. As sophisticated as these modern differentials can be, errors can make operation considerably less smooth. In today’s automobile, a check engine light is often one of the first telltale signs that your car is having trouble.
You might also notice some strange sounds or vibrations when something goes awry with your vehicle’s differential. In other situations, your differential might vibrate gears in unpredictable ways, resulting in uneven speeds and inconsistencies while driving.
A bad differential can sound in different ways. You may experience a whine to a rumble, or loud clanks when going from sitting still to moving. Another sure sign it’s differential is if the symptoms get worse when coasting compared with when accelerating. The noise generally comes from the rear, but it can be hard to locate for sure depending on the volume level.
While some of these problems might seem negligible in the moment, ignoring such issues could make the situation worse, decreasing the life of your differential over time and increasing the costs of differential repair.
The major internal components of a differential includes a case, ring & pinion gear, spider gears, side gears a carrier and axles.
Bearings and caps tightly hold the gears & carrier in place in the differential case. The side gears and spider gears are positioned inside the differential carrier and are attached to the axles. The ring gear is attached to the outside of the carrier and the pinion gear is positioned in the differential housing and is supported by bearings. The ring gear has teeth and the pinion gear has teeth also. The gears are precisely machined to allow the gears to mate each other smoothly. The ring and pinion gears along with the carrier inside your differential case are what allow your auto to have two rear wheels. Just like in manual transmissions, ring and pinion gears tooth counts determine gear ratio. Your differential is a major component of your auto drivetrain.
