How to Stay Up to Date with Your Differential’s Lubrication Oil

In the same way engine, oil has to be changed at regular intervals; the differential oil also requires a similar process. Otherwise, the lubricating oil might lose its properties, thereby losing the ability to minimize friction. Lack of friction will cause the gears to grind against each other. So, how do you know it is time to change your oil?

One of the best ways to know when you should change your differential oil is by consulting your owner’s manual. The manual should provide recommended intervals that the lubrication fluid should be changed. In addition, the vehicle’s manual also provides other specificities you should know about the recommended oil, such as its weight, viscosity and resistance features. Using the wrong lubrication fluid could lead to an even more expensive repair.

If you have no access to your vehicle’s manual, visit our service center at Coastal Mitsubishi, and they will advise you on the best lubrication oil for your differential.
