The differential works to transfer power from the transmission to the wheels of the car. Depending on your vehicle, there may be one or two differentials at work keeping your ride smooth.

If you begin to hear a grinding noise when steering your vehicle, it could be the fluids in the differential are contaminated or they are low. Either way, the exposed gears working to transfer power are burning and could become a far more costly repair if you ignore the issue for too long.

If you are driving your vehicle often, you are putting a tremendous load on the differential gears. Higher temperatures can burn away the oil and cause the gears to become exposed to the point they start to break and fail to perform effectively.

At the first signs of trouble, visit George Gee Kia Liberty Lake and our crew will inspect the differential and replace the fluids with OEM gear oil.
