Why do I need to change the fluid in my differential?
The oil in your differential provides cooling and lubrication to the differential gears and bearings. Over time, the oil breaks down and its ability to do its job is reduced.
Your driving and towing habits affect how often you need to replace your differential fluid. The typical time frame is between 30,000 and 60,000 miles.
How much will it cost?
The typical cost for replacement is between $60-$180 for parts and labor. This price range is averaged across all passenger vehicles. The actual cost depends on your specific make, model and year. Depending on your specific vehicle, this cost may be lower or higher. This cost estimate is for the specific repair listed and doesn’t include additional, related items that may require repair.
What is included:
- Draining of old differential fluid
- Replacement of differential cover seal
- Visual inspection of differential.
Additional components requiring repair or replacement, may result in additional charges
