Transfer Case Repairs–4-Wheel Drive Service Specialists
- The differential and transfer case are two of the least understood vehicle components. For many drivers, it’s out of sight and out of mind. They don’t realize how important it’s been until they’re forced to repair it. General Transmission in Reno, NV wants drivers to know that preventive maintenance services for your vehicle’s differential will go a long way. Taking your vehicle into our transmission repair shop for routine maintenance will protect you from suffering costly repairs and breakdowns. Our team knows how to maintain your vehicle’s differentials and transfer case with clean oil for gear lubrication, and thorough inspections to remove debris, sludge, and old oil.
Quality Differential and Case Repair Maintenance
- Your vehicle’s differential is designed to keep your wheels spinning at the correct rate around every corner. As you make a turn, your outside tires rotate at a slightly slower speed. Therefore, the differential must channel power to wheels to keep them spinning at the appropriate rate. Your vehicle’s differential sits on the axle between the two tires along the drive shaft. Whether you’re driving a front-wheel drive vehicle, rear-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive, the differential manages to channel power to the slower turning wheels. The differential will be sitting between the front tires on the axle for front-wheel drive vehicles. For rear-wheel drive vehicles, it will sit on the rear axle between the rear tires. On a four-wheel drive vehicle, you have two differentials and a transfer case that will channel power to both differentials.
Thorough Differential Inspection–Checking and Resealing Leaks
- The transfer case is found in vehicles with four wheel drive. It channels power to the differential, but it does it for two different axles, affecting four different tires. If you’re driving a four-wheel drive, your transfer case requires the same level of maintenance that your differentials do. Make sure you go to a transmission repair shop that has an experienced professional that will monitor your four wheel drive’s differential performance. There are typically no causes for concern, but depending on the use of your four wheel drive, mishaps and malfunctions can become a problem. Allow the experts at General Transmission to inspect your vehicle’s differential and transfer case. The cost of replacing a differential is much more than a routine inspection or maintenance service. All it takes is a quick check from the best place for transmission repair and a quick thumbs up to be on the safe side. It cannot be stressed enough how important your vehicle’s differential and transfer case services are.
