Texas 18 Wheel Services, Inc. Can Diagnose Your Truck's Differential Problems

Most heavy-duty diesel truck drivers won't know there is a problem with their trucks' differential until they have to take sharp turns at an accelerated speed. When turning corners, the two outside set of tires have a slightly longer distance to travel than the inside ones. This means that they have to turn a little faster than those on the inside. The differential is the piece of magic that allows this to happen without sending your heavy-duty diesel truck spiraling out of control.

If you notice a problem with the ease at which your truck is turning corners, there is a very good chance it is because of a differential related problem.

How Your Diesel Truck's Differential Works

The differential is the component in your heavy-duty diesel truck that allows your tires to rotate at different speeds without the wheel binding. If you are driving a rear-wheel drive, then the differential is the bulge in the middle of the axle. However, if you have a front-wheel-drive, then the differential function is controlled by the transaxle.

A lot of trucks are all-wheel drives and, as such, have differentials on both axles. They also have a transfer case between both axles to compensate for any speed differentials between the two.

We Can Maintain Your Truck's Differential

The differential in your heavy-duty diesel truck is one of the strongest and most durable pieces of equipment. It is tough, can withstand tons of pressure, and is built to last. However, to ensure that it doesn't rust or deteriorate, it is crucial to keep it lubricated at all times.

Differential fluid cools and protects the gears from wear and tear and is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for proper truck maintenance. Our mechanics will check your differential fluid and make any necessary adjustments. Low differential fluid levels not only affect the effectiveness of your trucks' gears but could also cause the differential to become too hot and wear prematurely. When you bring your diesel truck into our shop, we'll be sure to add fresh differential fluid that will extend its life.
