The differential transmits power from the transmission to the wheels of the vehicle. The differential also allows one wheel to spin faster than the other when the vehicle is turning.
We do not rebuild differentials in our shop as this is usually done at a transmission specialty shop however we can perform diagnostics and will perform differential replacement services with new or remanufactured units. Our goal is to make sure our customers do preventative maintenance on their differentials so that expensive repairs are not necessary. Please see our maintenance section to get a full explanation of our differential service offered.
The most common sign of differential failure is a whining or growling sound while the vehicle is moving. You may also experience a binding feeling when trying to turn. These same symptoms could be related to transmission or steering and suspension components as well. If you are experiencing these symptoms give Repair Revolution a call to talk to one of our Service Advisors and schedule diagnosis.
