Understanding Your Differential

While learning about the different components of your engine may seem intimidating, having some basic knowledge of how your car functions can come in handy and save you money. Learning to spot issues before they become full-blown problems will save you aggravation as well.

A differential is a small box located between your wheels that works together with your transmission to help your wheels spin. One clue your differential is malfunctioning is a breakdown of the lubricating fluid it contains. You'll hear a grinding noise that over time will cause damage and cost more money to repair.

Another sign may be unexplained drops of fluid under your car from any leaks that have developed over time.
