Don't let this happen to you, call Woodward Service Centre of Barrie, Ontario and get your drivetrain and differential serviced
If you’ve never heard of a differential, you’re not alone. If you trade in your car for a new one every few years, you probably haven’t put on enough miles or towed enough heavy loads to warrant a differential service. If you purchase a used car, you should pay attention to the mileage to see if a differential service might be needed.
All vehicles have some form of a differential. If you have a front-wheel drive vehicle, the differential is located in the front and is often called the transaxle. However, the transaxle shares the same fluid as your transmission fluid, so there’s no differential fluid for you to change.
f you have a rear-wheel drive car, the differential is located in the back. If your car is four-wheel drive, you will have three differentials — one in the front, one in the back and one in the center of vehicle. The center differential is called the transfer case, and it helps adjust for differences in speed between your front and rear wheels..
Have you ever heard someone proudly say that their vehicle is purring like a kitten? That smooth humming noise means that everything is synchronized and moving as it should. Now, ask yourself this. Is your car roaring like a lion? If your vehicle is making excessively loud noises, there might be an issue with your differential. That loud “roaring” sound can mean that your differential fluid is running low and is causing the gears to grind against one another. If that’s the case, your gears are turning at such a fast rate that they can fuse together and lock up.
