What Exactly Is A Differential?

Your differential is what makes sure that your wheels are turning at the speed they need to. A differential, sitting between two wheels on the same axle, transfers power to both wheels at the necessary proportion. A differential is necessary because when you make turns in your vehicle the wheel on the outside takes a slightly longer path and thus needs to turn slightly quicker. Depending on if you have front-wheel, rear-wheel, or four-wheel drive, your vehicle will have a differential on the front axle, the rear axle, or on both axles.

What Is A Transfer Box?

A transfer box serves a similar purpose as a differential. The difference is that, rather than diverting power to two wheels, it diverts power to two differentials. Transfer boxes are found on vehicles with four-wheel drive.

Get Your Differential And Transfer Box Services Through Orient Auto Service

Much the same as any gearbox, both differentials, and transfer boxes require fluids to act as a lubricant for gears, shafts, and bearings as well as oil to transmit heat away from working surfaces. Over time, these fluids can become dirty or contaminated with water, making it harder for those fluids to do their jobs. They need to be replaced. Recommended service is every 30,000 miles.

Most manufactures have specific factory fluids that are required, such as Honda CTV, Dual pump, and VTM-4 fluids. Some auto service shops may not be immediately familiar with the fluid needs of your Japanese or Korean model vehicle. They might not even have the particular fluid your vehicle needs. Our team is well acquainted with the specific needs of the Japanese and Korean vehicles we service, so you can count on the Orient Auto Service team to get it right every time! Don’t hesitate to visit us when you need quality differential or transfer box service for your Asian import vehicle!
