Did you know that Drive Train Transfer Case & Differential fluids should be serviced every 2 years or 48,000 kilometers, whichever comes first or depending on the requirements of the manufacturer. If you are towing, heavy hauling, or snow plowing, you should service your fluid every 24,000 kilometers for optimal performance.
The drivetrain transports the power from the engine to the wheels and adjusts the amount of torque. It is comprised of the differential, transmission and transfer case along with their related subsystems. The differential, which contains a lubricating fluid, is a very important part because it allows for two wheels on one axle to turn at different speeds. When you turn your car, the outside wheels turn faster and cover more ground than the inside ones. In solid axle designs, this is impossible, either a transaxle or differential is necessary depending on the vehicle.
Heat from the engine can corrupt the differential fluid on top of normal degradation over time. Result: the differentials lubrication efficiency drops dramatically which can cause your differentials internal gears to damage themselves if the lubricant gets bad enough. Maintaining the drivetrain and all its components, and replacing fluids as recommended just makes good car sense.
