Despite the part delay, rescheduled appointment, obnoxious heat and a completely dead battery (none of which was at the fault of Brikk) Brikk was able to power through and get me and my G8 back on the street. Brikk gave me some oil lubricating tips for my over 150,000 mile ride. He trusted the information I provided about my alternator issues and was able to complete the job without any glitches as far as I know. 1st experience already referring... Thanks a bunch.

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.
