The differential is vital for your driving experience, but few drivers think about it until there is a problem. Out of sight and conveniently out of mind, the differential is the automotive component that adjusts wheel speeds when you are turning a corner. When you are driving your Honda car, truck, van, crossover, or SUV around a corner, the outer wheels must travel at a higher speed and cover a slightly greater distance compared to the inner wheel-tire assemblies. The component that adjusts for this difference is the differential positioned with your drive wheels. In rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles, there is a rear differential with many complex internal components that can start to show signs of wear and tear or become faulty and fail. Usually, the differential will just get the job done; however, if you have a problem, then the best way to fix it is with a rear differential service at Rolling Hills Honda.
There are two basic warning signs that you have a rear differential problem. First and foremost, a rear differential problem will create noise. Ticking, whining, howling, and grinding are the noises commonly generated by a faulty rear differential. Besides unusual sounds, a damaged rear differential will also threaten your driving experience as evidenced by vibrations, difficulty steering, and tire damage. Here is a list of the common symptoms of a rear differential problem; noises, vibrations or shimmy while driving, or tire damage.
