Protect Your Differential From Unnecessary Wear and Tear
Whether you own a 4-wheel drive truck, rear-wheel-drive car or anything in between, your vehicle’s differential gears wear every time you drive. If not properly lubricated, this can lead to a lot of wear and tear on the metal parts in your gearbox.
At Scappoose Express Lube & Car Wash, we recommend your vehicle’s gearbox (also known as a differential fluid service) be serviced at regular intervals.
Our certified technicians never pressure you into additional or unnecessary services. Sit back, relax and stay in your car while we work on ensuring your vehicle is a well-oiled and flushed machine!
Gearbox Service at Scappoose Express Lube and Car Wash
At Scappoose Express Lube & Car Wash, we know how important it is to protect your car’s differential. The differential transfers the right amount of your engine’s power to each of your vehicle’s wheels. If it’s not operating at maximum efficiency you won’t obtain optimal performance out of your vehicle.
When you bring your car, truck or SUV to Scappoose Express Lube & Car Wash, we check your gearbox fluid to make sure it’s full, fresh and free of worn metal from your gears and other contaminants. This also lets us know if there are other problems which may exist. After we check your gearbox fluid, we’ll drain it completely and fill it with fresh gearbox fluid.
Benefits of a Gearbox Fluid Service
Gearbox fluid is just like any other lubricating oil. It breaks down over time and needs to be replaced. By having your gearbox serviced at Scappoose Express Lube & Car Wash, you can drive confident knowing your differential is protected from the metal-on-metal damage caused by old, broken-down gearbox fluid.
Low gearbox fluid is one of the most common causes of loud vehicle noises. These noises are the result of metal gears grinding against each other without proper lubrication. If your vehicle is making a loud “roaring” sound, watch out! This might be caused by gears spinning so fast (and without lubrication) they may lock together seizing your vehicle’s drive system.
When your gearbox fluid is fresh your car will be noticeably quieter, thanks to lubricating gearbox fluid protecting your differential and your vehicle.
Staying on top of gearbox service also saves you money. On many cars, a new differential can cost over $1,500. This is an expensive repair you can avoid simply by having your gearbox fluid serviced and replaced regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I need a gearbox fluid service?
You’ll need to replace your gearbox fluid about every 10,000-50,000 miles, depending on the vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule and other factors. Contact one of our technicians for more information today!
What situations call for a more frequent gearbox fluid service?
If you often pull a heavy load, like a boat, RV or trailer for work then you’ll need your gearbox fluid serviced more frequently. Some vehicles require more frequent service.
What will happen if I do not replace the differential fluid?
Old or contaminated gearbox fluid loses its ability to protect the metal components and clutch plates in your differential. Over time, this can lead to worn or even broken ring and pinion gears, resulting in an undrivable vehicle.
