Did your driver information system in your Honda say it is time for differential service or is it listed on your maintenance schedule? This quick and relatively inexpensive fluid replacement is recommended between 50,000 and 100,000 miles for most vehicles, but may be needed sooner if you live and drive in extreme conditions in the Aberdeen and Rapid City, South Dakota area. If the reminder light is on in your SUV, this is one maintenance task that should not be put off. Make a plan to bring your ride into Vern Eide Honda for service today.
The rear differential on your rear-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle transfers the power from the driveshaft to the axles while also allowing the right and left wheels to spin at different speeds without stripping gears when you take a corner. The housing of the differential protects the pinion gear, bearings, and gaskets while maintaining the differential fluid needed to keep everything lubricated.
Changing your differential fluid is part of the standard maintenance schedule on every vehicle. Over time the oil can congeal, collect metal filings from the gears, or leak. Fresh fluid allows your drivetrain to continue to spin with as little friction as possible while extending the life of the gears, axles, driveshaft, and ultimately the engine. Check your Honda owner's manual for the proper differential service interval.
Look for signs of wear and tear on your transmission and differential by listening and paying attention to your vehicle's performance. If you notice
