Differential Repair FAQ

Can you tell me what a limited slip differential is?
Occasionally one of our customers in the Colorado Springs area will ask a technician at Trans Tech Auto & Truck what a limited slip differential is. We tell them that when their vehicle is turning around a curve, the outside wheel turns a larger radius than that of the wheel inside. This results in the outside wheel turning faster which is allowed by the differential. In a limited slip differential system, clutches or a locking mechanism is used to facilitate power and drive both wheels. This system was designed to enable both wheels to turn at varying speeds in turns, but have them both pulling when driving straight. The advantage of this is that both wheels are pulling even when one wheel may lose traction.

What can cause a differential to fail?
Trans Tech Auto & Truck tells our customers in the Colorado Springs area that the differential in a vehicle is no different than any other component in that it is subject to wear and some vehicle’s differentials fail before others. The leading cause of a differential failing is due to using the wrong lubricant type and specialty lubricants. Water can also be a culprit to a differential failing as it can enter through the vent or seals. This often happens when driving in high water. When water enters it will emulsify the differential lubricant and result in rusting on gear and bearing surfaces. Seized U-joints that result in vibration can cause differential failure as well.

What problems can happen with an auto differential?

  • Water sometimes dilutes the lubricant.
  • The rear differential oil is not replaced and over time breaks down.
  • A bearing will fail and cause a seal to leak and/or ring and pinion gear misalignment. A misalignment of a few thousandths of an inch can quickly destroy ring and pinion gears.

Differential diagnosis on car losing oil and Differential or transmission is whining- Any thoughts?
One of the signs your transmission or differential is going bad or failing, or you have leaking gear oil, is a noisy transmission or differential. If the gear oil runs low, or becomes excessively dirty, it can cause the gears to whine or howl as they turn. The whining or howling is caused by lack of lubrication and may increase in volume as vehicle speed increases. This howling or whining sound from your differential or transmission, should be inspected by one of our trained auto mechanics as soon as possible in order to prevent the possibility of serious damage.
