The Primary Symptoms of a Malfunctioning Gear or Differential

The most common symptoms related to a failing gear or differential oil is a noisy differential or transmission. Once the lubrication oil becomes excessively dirty or runs low, the gears start howling and whining when you maneuver turns.

These noises are a red flag that tells you the differential needs lubrication. You will notice the volume of the noise increases as you speed off. It is important to have your car inspected as soon as you hear any whining or howling noise. That way, you will prevent serious damage to essential car components.

Gear and differential oils are important lubrication fluids needed in the normal operations of a car. However, it is easy to forget about them because the differentials and gears are not serviced as often as other parts of the car. Therefore, if you suspect that your gear or differential oil has been contaminated, you would rather get your car to a certified dealer.
