What is the differential fluid service (rear axle oil service) all about?

The differential is a special gear box located between the drive wheels of your vehicle. It allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds, as they must when turning a corner. Over time, high operating temperatures can cause the lubricating fluid in the differential to break down, developing a gummy texture that doesn't properly lubricate the gears. Replacing the fluid can help you avoid premature wear on the gears in the differential, and can even help reduce wear on drive-wheel tires.

Keep in mind:

Some vehicles do not have a drain plug. In these vehicles, the differential cover must be removed to drain the fluid. A new gasket is installed and the proper amount of oil is then added.

How it's done:

  • Check the fluid level
  • Drain and fill the fluid
  • Add the correct amount and specification of oil
  • Test drive vehicle and check for leaks

Our recommendation:

You should follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for when to change the differential fluid. Usually this is anywhere between every 15,000 and every 50,000 miles. However, all of the fluids in your vehicle should be checked during regular maintenance services.

What is a common symptom indicating you need a differential fluid service (rear axle oil service)?

  • Car is louder than normal

How important is this service?

When you turn your vehicle one way or the other, the wheels on one side of the car need to move at a different rate than the wheels on the other side of the car. The differential is a special gearbox that allows your wheels to do exactly that. It is located between the drive wheels, and helps the wheels turn at rates independent of one another. Like most parts of your car, the differential needs fluid to act as lubrication. When this fluid isn’t properly serviced, it can become contaminated. Contaminated differential fluid doesn’t work very well as a lubricant, and so your differential won’t be properly lubricated. This puts extra stress on the differential and wheels.

Audi SQ5 V6-3.0L Turbo - Car Battery Replacement - Tacoma, Washington
My experience with Joseph was great. I learned a lot, as I did not know where Audi hid the battery (the task today was to replace the battery), or that there is an air compressor to fill the spare tire should I need, or how the panels, compartments, tools, spare tire and miscellaneous items under the rear floor are removed and reinstalled. I would not have learned the above ‘secrets’ the easy way without the help of Joseph and Your Mechanic. I avoided the cost of towing my SUV to the dealer or other auto repair shop, and sitting in the customer waiting area when I could have learned more. Joseph is a nice guy with skills.

I asked Carlos to complete a pre-purchase inspection. Outstanding attention to detail. Great report that outlined all aspects of the car. He drove the car and had some feedback on 2 items for me - which will be fixed prior to purchase. I could not have asked Carlos to do anything more!! Thanks!
