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.

Mercedes-Benz CLK500 - Brakes, Steering and Suspension Inspection - Irvine, California
5 stars are not enough to rate Chris. He arrived on time, extremely knowledgeable, patient with my curiosity, polite answering all my questions, thorough and detailed in his work and, overall, impressive. I've been to endless auto shops and mechanics which either resulted in temporary or partial satisfaction, or even disappointment. This was my experience today with Yourmechanic.com, and, in particular, with Chris Allshouse: I made an appointment for half dozen (or so) misc inspection services for $200 to find out any and all possible issues that needed to be fixed - which Chris pointed out and explained (to a person who knows basically nothing about cars) in layman's terms. He first mentioned I needed new battery and some random fuses/etc as well as tune-up in near future (after I put some more miles on car). Of course my first worry and response was how much more will this cost me, but was delightfully surprised and immediately told not to worry because when I (a customer) pays for "inspection" service appointment, that money is credited toward any future repairs/work done on my car - LOVED IT! I only had to pay few dollars more to get some work done, new battery with install, fuses and more!! As for the tune-up, Chris explained each little thing needed in regards to the tune-up rather than just telling me I need a "tune-up" which could mean I needed a bunch of things done (that are most likely not even necessary). To sum up my review, and end my rambling, I randomly stumbled upon Yourmechanic.com a long time ago. I think It took me two years, maybe even more, to finally drop my skepticism and make an appointment with Yourmechanic.com, yet, because of Chris Allshouse, it took less than a minute to feel confident and excited to set up follow up appointment (as well as request to service my other car). Chris was very personable and easy to talk to. He was very informative and took the time to explain everything to me. I highly recommend him. For the first time, the results were different and with only one afterthought…What took me so long to make this decision!

Mercedes-Benz CLK500 - Oil Change - Pleasanton, California
Trung called and arrived a bit earlier which I told him he could do that since I'm already back in my location. He took care of it like a pro and fast. I found out he has to drive from quite a distance away to my location which make me feel bad. My Mercedes warning light was all reset after the oil change and everything is back to normal. Found a minor leak in trans axle. Awesome job Trung. Keep up the good work.
