What Is a Differential and Do You Have One?Posted June 9, 2019 7:03 AM
With front-wheel drive being so common these days in Hagerstown, MD, the differential is just taken care of during a transmission service, so most Hagerstown drivers don't even have to think about it. And rear-wheel drive differentials don't need to be serviced for years, so it's understandable that it's not something on the top of Hagerstown customers' minds. It's not uncommon for drivers to not know they have a differential let alone know that it needs service.

To better understand what a differential does, think about our local Hagerstown high school track. There are lanes marked off on the track. For the longer distance races, the starting lines are staggered. The starting lines for the outside lanes are ahead of the starting lines for the inside lanes. That's to compensate for the longer length of the outside lanes. Staggering the starting lines means that each runner has the same distance to run.
