What is a Differential?

Have you had your differentials checked lately? While it’s not a routine maintenance, it is something that you should do if you notice issues with your tires riding roughly. Your service department should also check your differentials if you are going in for a tire balance or rotation. Differentials are located on the axles of your vehicle.

If you have a front-wheel drive, you’ll be able to find the differential on the front axle. It’s the opposite for rear-wheel drive, and you’ll have two differentials with all-wheel drive. Differential oil helps your axles move smoothly. You need these for your axles to rotate consistently at the same speed despite how fast you drive or when you’re taking a turn.

Want to get a checkup for your differentials? You can get a great rate on tire checkups and balances when you stop by our Honda dealership.
