WHAT ARE DIFFERENTIAL OUTPUT SEALS?

And why does it matter if they are damaged?

This simple seal is an important part of keeping your vehicle running safely, since it prevents gear oil from leaking (and burning) on your differential, keeps moving parts working smoothly, and prevents parts of your engine from overheating. Because of this, a damaged differential output seal can cause serious harm to your vehicle in addition to making it unfit to drive.

DOES YOUR DIFFERENTIAL OUTPUT SEAL NEED TO BE REPLACED?

Damage to your differential output seal usually results in leakage around the affected area. Signs of this type of leak can present as:

 

  • A Puddle –  If you see gathering fluid beneath your parked car (aside from regular water condensation from your A/C unit), it could be gear oil leaking from your differential seals.

 

  • A Noise –  Hearing an unpleasant grinding or whining noise in the rear of your car? This could be a sign that your differential seal is going bad.

 

  • A Smell –  A leaking differential output seal will often cause your vehicle to give off an unpleasant smell. This is the scent of gear oil burning on your differential.

 

If you notice one of these issues, visit a trusted auto service shop right away. Waiting to replace the condenser seal could be dangerous to your safety—and to your vehicle.

CAN I CHECK DIFFERENTIAL FLUID LEVELS?

Unfortunately, no. Unlike other essential fluids like engine oil, gasoline, or transmission oil, you cannot check your car’s levels of differential fluid using a gauge, dipstick, or even the naked eye. Instead, you need to rely on detailed inspections by your mechanic to identify potential problems.

 

When you get into the shop, your mechanic will confirm that you have a seal leak and replace the seal with a fresh one. They will also refill your differential and test it for leaks.

The benefits of DIFFERENTIAL SEAL REPLACEMENT

SAVING MONEY

Since damaged differential output seals can harm other parts of your vehicle, you can save a significant amount of money on additional repairs by getting that seal replaced right away.

SAVING LIVES

Malfunctioning differential seals can cause your vehicles moving parts to suddenly seize up, stop working properly, or overheat. This can pose serious danger to you and everyone else on the road around you. Maintaining the integrity of your differential seals solves this problem before it starts.

SAVING PERFORMANCE

As simple as differential output seals are, they are absolutely crucial to keeping your vehicle running smoothly and preventing damage or overheating in your engine’s many moving parts.

HOW TO PREVENT DIFFERENTIAL SEAL ISSUES

  1. Inspect Your Gadgets – Even if you take very good care of your vehicle, differential seals naturally wear down over time. Regular inspections can help spot issues with your seals before they become a serious problem.

 

  1. Maintain Your Car – In general, you should be replacing differential seals, regardless of damage, every 25,000 miles. At this point, a serious leak is only a matter of time. 

 

  1. Trust Your Mechanic – Since problems with your differential seal can be difficult to diagnose, it’s important to seek out the trained eye of an experienced auto repair technician.
