Protect Your Differential From Unnecessary Wear and Tear
Whether you own a 4X4, a sports car or anything in between, your vehicle’s differential gears wear every time you drive and must be properly lubricated. If not, it can lead to unnecessary wear and tear on the metal parts in your gearbox.
The maintenance experts at Springfield Express Lube recommend your vehicle’s gearbox be serviced at regular intervals (also known as a differential fluid service).
Our certified technicians are here to help. They’ll 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 Springfield Express Lube
The differential transfers the proper amount of engine power to each of your vehicle’s wheels. When not operating at maximum efficiency it is impossible to achieve optimal performance from your vehicle.
When you bring your vehicle to Springfield Express Lube, we’ll check your gearbox fluid to ensure it’s full, fresh and free of worn metal. 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 all other lubricating oils. It will break down over time and needs to be replaced eventually. When servicing your car or truck at Springfield Express Lube, you can drive confidently knowing your differential is protected from the metal-on-metal damage caused by worn out gearbox fluid.
Loud vehicle noise is a common symptom of low gearbox fluid. The noise is a result of metal gears grinding against each other without proper lubrication. If your vehicle is making a loud “roaring” sound this might be caused by gears spinning so fast (and without lubrication) they lock together and seize your vehicle’s drive system.
When your gearbox fluid is fresh your car will be noticeably quieter thanks to the lubricating gearbox fluid protecting your differential and your vehicle. Staying on top of gearbox service will also save you money. On many vehicles, a new differential will cost over $1,500+.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I need a gearbox fluid service?
Gearbox fluid will need to be replaced about every 10,000-50,000 miles, depending on the vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule and other factors.
What situations call for a more frequent gearbox fluid service?
Vehicles that tow a heavy load, like a boat, RV or trailer for work need their gearbox fluid serviced more frequently. Additionally, some vehicles will require more frequent service.
What will happen if I do not replace the differential fluid?
Old or contaminated gearbox fluid has lost 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.
