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 SL600 V12-6.0L - Loud screeching noise when I start the car - Goodyear, Arizona
I have an older Mercedes 600SL and was somewhat concerned about using some one other than a dealer, but my fears were put to rest after my initial conversation with Steve. Steve was on time, knowledgeable, had all of the required tools. diagnose the problem and gave me a stalemate of cost for the repair. He did not try to over sale me on something I didn't need. He made the repairs made sure that everything was correct and assured me that if I needed anything more he was just a phone call awaly. Steve called me the next day just to check that the repair was good.

Mercedes-Benz SL600 V12-5.5L Turbo - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Huntington Beach, California
Highly recommend Chris and will request him next time I need service on my Mercedes SL600 V12 Turbo Roadster! Chris is an expert craftsman who really knows about my Mercedes. I was happy about saving money by not going to the dealer for service. Who knew you can have your car serviced at home while getting things done around the house instead of wasting time driving to a dealer and hanging out in their waiting area! I will definitely request Chris next time my car needs service!!

Hello, my name is\*\*\*\*\* drive a 2011 Toyota [Prius](/topics-prius/) with 120,000 miles. It has been 8000 miles since the last oil change — the factory recommended interval is 5000, but I found somewhere that Toyota was suggesting 10000 was ok, so I was trying it out given how frequently I have to do oil changes. In the last week, the car is running a bit rougher than usual. I noticed the master warning light blink on for a second and then go off when braking, and something about oil pressure briefly flashed. I checked the oil and it seemed a bit low and darker than expected, so I decided to change it. Before doing so, I got a check [engine](/topics-engine-toyota/) light with a P0302 Cylinder 2 Misfire detected code.
