Carols was helpful, honest and pleasure to work with. He gave me a hint of what to do with my car from this point because it does need some work. I was happy because he gave me a couple pointers on how to get my car fixed with paying a lot for it.

All about Differential/Gear Oil Replacement

Differential oil is a type of oil. Cars have a gearbox connecting the two axles. This gearbox is responsible for the conversion of engine power and its transmission to the wheels, allowing them to turn at varying speeds. This part of the car is called the differential, and lubrication is needed for it to function properly. Differential fluid, also called differential oil, provides the lubrication and cooling of the car’s differential. The fluid is there to protect the gears’ metal surfaces from friction, and to prevent overheating and burning.
