What does your differential do for you?

Power is delivered from your vehicle’s engine, through the transmission, and on to the differential to turn the wheels. A differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds. This is important when you are turning a corner as the wheels on the inside of the corner must rotate at a slower speed than the wheels on the outside.

Just as your engine needs to have its old oil changed, the differential fluid (a very thick type of oil) also needs to be changed.

Over the course of time, the differential fluid oxidizes and breaks down, losing its ability to lubricate the gears and bearings in the differential. This can lead to expensive repairs.

We’re mechanics and we love to repair vehicles, but we’d be happier maintaining your vehicle so that it never needed those costly repairs.

Preventive Maintenance

We can protect your differential from oil breakdown by performing a differential service with TerraClean Gear Oil Treatment. It improves the transfer of heat in the system, which reduces oxidation. It also protects the system components from moisture build up.

It helps prevent metal to metal wear that can lead to expensive damage in your differential.
Our technicians replace the old differential fluid with fresh differential fluid, ensuring that moisture and dirt are removed from the system.

TerraClean Gear Oil Treatment is added to the differential. For Limited Slip (Positraction) or Locking Differentials, TerraClean Limited Slip Treatment is applied.

 Benefits of a Differential Service

  • Your differential will be cleaned of contaminants that can damage your components.
  • Your differential will have better heat transfer, and the oxidization process will be slowed on the new fluid which increases the life of these valuable components.

    Paragon Motors was a delight. Not only did they give us the best price, but they actually fixed what was wrong. We had taken our car to another place first and they misdiagnosed the problem. Rick took it around the block and knew exactly what to do to get it... read more -

    The Paragon Motors team went above and beyond in so many ways to figure out why our F150 was stalling, and to fix the problem quickly so we could safely get back home to Washington state.

    Rang around multiple companies asking for help with my car. Paragon was by far the most cost effective and helpful in helping me understand what was wrong with my car and the repair they were doing.
    Will definitely be a returning customer

    Thanks so much.

    Drew and his team gave us great service, very good workmanship and a good price. Drew got my elderly mother’s car in for some major repairs, in the last week before Christmas. Would recommend Paragon Motors to anyone, excellent in every way. -
