The differential comprises a series of parts that compensate for the speed difference between the left and right tires during cornering. While lubrication protects these components inside the differential housing lasts for a while, it will eventually break down and need to be switched out. If the service is delayed and you continue to drive, your differential could wear down to metal-to-metal contact and you could face pricy repairs. It is better to keep up with differential maintenance than to pay for differential replacement or repairs.

Besides lubricating components inside the differential housing, there are a few benefits of having fresh differential fluid. New differential fluid can provide better road grip, increased vehicle responsiveness, and rotations and turns become smoother.
Although differential fluid usually lasts longer than most vehicle fluids, it doesn’t last forever. Most of the time differential fluid is changed between every 30,000-60,000 miles. This is a task best reserved for trained technicians.
