Differential Repair

Are you wondering if differential maintenance is right for your car or truck? If you’re driving in…

The Car Salon Tire Craft Division is the leading differential repair shop in Calgary, AB. The axle of your car or truck carries more responsibility than simply supporting the weight of your vehicle. In fact, in many vehicles, the axle is an important component of the steering system. In the middle of the axle, you’ll usually find your car or truck’s differential, which requires routine service and repair as a way of maintaining the smooth maneuverability in your ride.

Four-wheel drive vehicles are equipped with a differential in front and back. Rear wheel drive vehicles are equipped with a differential in back. A front wheel drive vehicle’s differential is called the trans-axle, located between the front wheels.

It’s called a trans-axle because a front wheel vehicle’s differential combines the front axle and transmission. All-wheel drive vehicles are a bit more complex and are equipped with a differential on the front and rear wheels with a transfer case between them, which adjusts for speed differences between the front and rear wheels. In all cases, routine maintenance on your vehicle’s differential helps it to stay strong while continuing to route power between wheels.

At our facility in Calgary, AB, a differential repair service will involve the draining of old fluid from the differential and re-filling it with new, clean fluid to keep it lubricated and working strong. Some differentials are more complex than others and require different additives to be installed and repaired over time. There’s no standard rule-of-thumb of when to repair your car or truck’s differential. Maintenance can differ from vehicle to vehicle. Tougher terrain—like dirt roads, unpaved or gravel roads—in Calgary, AB can have a heavier impact on the life of your vehicle’s differential. When scheduling a differential repair service, you should consider where you drive most often and how much time your vehicle spends traversing that type of terrain.

If you value a smooth ride and the ability to easily navigate through tight turns, then you should regularly seek differential repair service from our experienced auto mechanics. We’re happy to provide quality customer service and quick differential repair for Calgary, AB. Make an appointment with us today for a differential repair or stop in to speak with a member of our auto repair team so that you can learn more about how to maintain and improve the life of your car or truck’s differential.

Differential Fluid Service

Differential Inspection and Repair

There are some common routine repairs you naturally think of when taking your car or truck to an…

The Car Salon Tire Craft Division provides differential fluid services to customers in Calgary, ABDifferential Fluid Service. A differential fluid service in Calgary, AB is as important to your car or truck as an oil change. The fluid inside your vehicle’s differential keeps the working parts lubricated in order to guarantee a smooth ride. At our facility in Calgary, AB, a differential service will involve the draining of old fluid from the differential and re-filling it with new, clean fluid to keep it lubricated and working strong.

On all cars and trucks, the differential’s primary responsibility is to compensate for or adjust to the differences in wheel speed as your vehicle maneuvers through turns.

When your car or truck is navigating a turn, the inside wheel turns slower than the outside wheel, which has to turn faster in order to keep pace with the inside wheel. The differential allows the wheels to turn at different speeds while maintaining the overall speed of your car or truck. A car or truck without a differential would hop and bump along the pavement in an unstable, shakier ride.

There are a few ways to detect differential leakage in your car or truck, but it can only be done if you know what to look for. Forget simply looking for wet spots under your vehicle. The fluid in your vehicle’s differential will need to be drained and replaced if your car refuses to switch gears, if the clutch becomes stuck or does not transition smoothly, if the engine sounds like it is speeding up when your car or truck is maintaining a constant speed, if the clutch pedal becomes stuck to the floor, or if you hear knocking noises while driving in low speeds. Ignoring any of these warning signs can have expensive aftereffects on your differential.

After all, on all front wheel drive vehicles, the differential combines the front axle and transmission. If a differential leak is ignored on a front wheel drive vehicle, you risk damaging your car or truck’s transmission, which is a much more expensive repair than our differential fluid service. Four-wheel drive vehicles are equipped with a differential in front and back with a transfer case in between them. The transfer case helps adjust speed between all four wheels. In four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case is as important to your vehicle’s drivability as the differentials themselves. During a differential fluid service, we’ll inspect the transfer case to ensure a consistent and fluid route of power between axles.

In Calgary, AB, whether or not your car or truck has four wheel drive, front wheel drive, or rear wheel drive, you have a differential that experiences heavy wear and tear. Overall differential maintenance can vary from vehicle to vehicle, but you should always be aware of the warning signs involved in fluid leakage in your differential. We’re happy to provide quality customer service and quick differential fluid repair services for Calgary, AB. If you value a smooth ride and the ability to easily navigate through tight turns, then you should regularly schedule a differential repair service with our experienced auto mechanics. Make an appointment with us today for a differential fluid repair to keep your car or truck’s differential in proper operating condition.
