Differential Service

Set a different driving standard with a comprehensive differential service from Destin Imports.

The differential is an integral part of your car, as it allows you to turn without difficulty. Its fluid, however, can become dirty, so you’ll need a differential service to replace it. The service involves draining the old differential oil or fluid, so a new one can be placed. This is done by a professional technician every 50,000 miles, although this can be different for luxury vehicles. A BMW’s differential oil, for example, should be changed every 20,000 miles, while a Mercedes-Benz’s should be changed every 30,000 miles.

Destin Imports offers excellent differential service for both Mercedes-Benz and BMW. We have a trusted team of car technicians who can work efficiently on these renowned luxury vehicles since they have received and still undergo proper training. We also use advanced equipment and tools that allow us to deliver reliable results.

Signs That You Need Differential Service

The differential fluid, sometimes called the gear oil or differential oil, can run out or become contaminated over time. When this happens, you’ll notice the following:

1. Strange Vibrations

An unusual vibration while driving could be an indication of bad gear oil. This can be confirmed if the vibration increases each time you make a turn or if you accelerate. To fix the problem, take your vehicle to a professional auto shop.

2. Burning Smell

If you smell something burning coming from your gearbox, it might be heating up. The cause is a differential fluid that has become contaminated or dirty and can no longer oil the gears properly. The best option here is to have the gear oil replaced.

3. Weird Noises

A bad differential can cause your car to make strange whining sounds. This is because the various metal parts of the vehicle are no longer getting enough lubrication. So, sounds are produced when one metal component comes into contact with another.

4. Jerky Transmission

When your differential fluid drops below the required level for proper transmission operation, you will notice your gears slipping and grinding. This will cause the transmission to jerk, and this can become stronger until the gear oil is replaced.
