Rear Differential Service Special

Amongst the various other necessary services your Honda needs, it can be very easy to let less frequent, but equally as important services be easily forgotten. However, with our certified and highly trained technicians and service team at Roy Schmidt Honda, we’ll make sure your Honda is always getting the right service it needs. 

Your rear differential fluid needs to be replaced at regular intervals in order for your car to continue running healthy and smooth. Both the front and rear of your vehicle have a differential - which is just a gearbox that can be found between the drive wheels. If your Honda is a four-wheel drive, then it has both a front and rear differential. The purpose of it is to work with your transmission to deliver power from the engine to the axle that allows your wheels to function and turn.

Signs you need rear differential service:

  • You notice the oil is dirty or contaminated with debris or metal particles
  • Your car makes grinding noises as you turn corners
  • There is a humming noise due to gears grinding against each other (sign of low lubricant)
  • Car vibrates while driving down the road

Importance of Proper Rear Differential Lubrication

Having the differentials properly lubricated allows the heat to transfer away from the gears to extend the life and performance of them. With time and usage, eventually, the fluid will begin to naturally break down and not perform as well as it should. When this occurs, the fluid becomes contaminated and leaks may form, the gears inside may stop working as smoothly due to increased friction. This combination will then lead to costly repairs that were completely avoidable.
