The Importance of Maintaining Your Car Differential

The rear differential is one of the major parts in a working car, semi or truck. The position a differential takes determines fuel combustion, the motion of the piston as well as the conversion power of the crankshaft. In other words, the differential is the ‘brains’ behind the creation of torque that is evenly distributed via the transmission.

As such, it is important to have a clear maintenance schedule when it comes to taking care of your differential. When your car is in motion, each wheel rotates at a different speed. It is the differential that allows your car to balance these different speeds thereby making your car stable.

To ensure you have precise readings on your speedometer, ensure you have a working differential. Visit our service center at Robberson Ford Sales Inc., and get to learn more on how to maintain differentials, bearing in mind the important role it plays in the movement of your car.
