I marked Timothy arriving on time. Actually, he was 20 minutes late but he communicated properly that he was going to be late and when he was in transit. That was acceptable to me. He proceeded with the analysis without getting distracted by my frequent questions and comments. I basically only needed the oil change service but I appreciate having a to-do list with further needed repairs as I can afford them. The service is a needed alternative to dealer and independent shops, which are loaded with facility and management overhead. Keep up the good work.

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.
