Understanding the Basics of Car Differentials

Thousands of different mechanical components must work in perfect harmony for your car to run smoothly. That includes a unique and complex device known as a differential. Here is a closer look at how differentials work and some steps that you can take to keep yours running smoothly.

The primary job of the differential is to allow each of a vehicle’s wheels to spin independently of one another. That job is extremely important when turning or driving over bumps. When a differential is broken or worn, it can force a vehicle to veer to the side. Broken differentials also tend to make unusual whining or grinding noises.

Our service department is here to help all residents of Greenville and the surrounding communities deal with any car problems that they might be experiencing. Please head to Barbour-Hendrick Honda Greenville today if you would like to have your differential service or inspected.
