U guys get low marks because I don't know how many times I need to say this. I don't have a Volvo. It was a BMW. Your inability to respond and or correct this has me wondering, what else do u guys overlook and really don't care ? This small stuff should make ya sweat. But I doubt it. Until U correct, you will never vault to the upper levels of customer service. No wonder my car didn't get fixed. U think it's a Volvo

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.
