Differential Oil

By David Sturtz, April 14, 2008

The differential contains gears and bearings that are lubricated by oil. Without this lubrication, friction can wear down the gears and bearings, causing them to fail.

Important Note: Requirements for differential oil are vehicle-specific. The wrong oil can damage your vehicle.
