About Differential Repair and Diagnostics

The "power" generated from your engine travels through many components before actually making your wheels turn. The differential is most commonly the last stop. It's responsible for distributing the engine power to your wheels.

When you accelerate, your wheels rotate and your car moves forward. When traveling straight, your wheels turn at the same rate. But did you know, when you make turns or go around corners, your wheels must go at different speeds? The differential is responsible for driving a pair of wheels, while also allowing them to rotate at different RPMs (revolutions per minute) when required, giving more precise control of your vehicle.

Like most components, your differential will have recommended service intervals, which include replacing the differential oil.

When you need expert advice, you can count on the team at Integra Tire Grande Prairie to get your vehicle up and running in tip-top shape.
