Differential Repair

Differential Repairs

A vehicle's wheels rotate at different speeds, mainly when turning corners. The differential is designed to drive a pair of wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds.

The purpose of the differential is to distribute engine energy to the axles so that the axles spin the wheels the right way at the right speed. The differential also allows the wheels to spin at different rates as a vehicle rounds a corner. The inside wheel spins slower than the outside wheel when turning; this "difference" is how the differential gets its name.

The differential contains gears and bearings that are lubricated by oil. Like all oils and fluids in a vehicle, the oil in the differential should be changed every 30,000 miles or more frequently if you use your vehicle to tow or carry heavy loads.

To drain and refill the differential fluid the vehicle is driven to get the differential oil warm. The oil is then drained from the differential and refilled with fresh oil.

In vehicles without a differential, such as karts, both driving wheels are forced to rotate at the same speed, usually on a common axle driven by a simple chain-drive mechanism. When cornering, the inner wheel needs to travel a shorter distance than the outer wheel, so with no differential, the result is the inner wheel spinning and/or the outer wheel dragging, and this results in difficult and unpredictable handling, damage to tires and roads, and strain on (or possible failure of) the entire drive train.
