The Difference a Healthy Differential Makes to Driving

At Cortland Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Cortland, NY, we encourage customers to understand their vehicle's inner workings enough to know when troubleshooting is indicated. That's certainly the case with the differential, the gearbox that's situated between your car's drive wheels, responsible for working with the transmission to deliver engine power to the wheels' axle. When you understand the differential's function and the importance of keeping it lubricated, you will notice certain issues before they become major repair problems.

If you hear the gears whine or howl as they turn, make an immediate service appointment at Cortland Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. Any strange noise such as a loud clunking sound when shifting from drive to reverse is also another differential problem warning sign. Our experienced service technicians will recognize immediately if a differential oil change is warranted so you can get back on the road quickly and enjoy a safe and comfortable driving experience in and around the Cortland area.
