Is all differential fluid the same?

Every car is different. The differential is a component in all cars and is designed to compensate for the difference in distance the inner wheels and outer wheels travel as the car goes around a corner. Front-drivers typically integrate the differential in the transmission housing and share the same fluid.

Why is differential fluid so expensive?

The appearance of contaminated oil fluid means that it needs to be changed, sooner rather than later. If you wait too long, it can easily damage other components and increase the total differential fluid change cost dramatically.

How do I know if I need to change my differential fluid?

Signs your differential/gear oil needs to be changed and/or replaced include:

  1. The oil is contaminated with substances or metal particles.
  2. Grinding noise as you turn corners.
  3. Humming noises because the gears are grinding against each other due to low lubricant.
  4. Vibrations while you are driving down the road.

What kind of noise does a bad differential make?

The most common sound of a failed differential is a whining noise. This is often due to poor lubrication within the differential, meaning there is a good chance that the differential fluid is leaking. If you spot a reddish fluid under the differential, there is certainly a leak.
