Differential/Gear Oil Replacement Service

What is the Differential/Gear Oil all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Some vehicles have a front differential and others have a rear differential.
  • Some vehicles use a synthetic gear oil.

How it's done:

  • Check fluid level.
  • Inspect the rear housing for leaks.
  • Remove the cover (if the differential does not have a drain plug).
  • Install new gasket if needed.
  • Fill with new fluid.

Our recommendation:

Differential oil should be changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. You should aim to have the gear oil changed every 30,000 miles, but it’s a good idea to have a mechanic check the differential oil during regular maintenance services.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Differential/Gear Oil?

Gear oil is contaminated with metal particles or other substances.

How important is this service?

The differential is responsible for transferring the power from the engine to the transmission and the wheels, and for controlling how much power goes to each wheel. Like many aspects of your vehicle, the differential requires oil to act as lubrication. Differential oil allows the differential to move smoothly and consistently, which allows the vehicle to continue sending power to the wheels. If the differential oil is old, it may be contaminated with debris and metal shavings. This contamination will come into constant contact with the differential, which can cause severe long term damage to the differential.

Ford Probe - Oxygen Sensor Replacement (Front/Upper/Upstream) - Sacramento, California
After Aaron reviewed by engine turn off issue when stopped idling, he inspected the car and then suggested oxygen sensor and spark plug replacement. Ok, great. Being a very old car, I probably would have been ok with a lot more. After Aaron completed the work I drove the car for about an hour, including 30+ stops in traffic downtown and it was great: engine sounded better idling ... acceleration from stop was like a turbo boost was added. I was having deja vu from when my car was new. Thanks Aaron. First mechanic in a long while to get my car that much in tune.

Ford Probe - Clutch Master Cylinder - Tampa, Florida
Torrieanto, was very good. My only issue was he was delayed getting here. After driving the car, the clutch still has some play in it. Don't think it is his fault, the line probably just needs to be bled some more. If possible I would like to speak with Torrieanto to address the issue.
