What Is the Rear Differential?
When cornering, the inner and outer wheels rotate at different rates as the outer wheels cover more distance. The rear differential adjusts for this difference in rotation while driving. The inner gears that allow for this adjustment are contained and lubricated within a housing. The inner lubricant requires routine maintenance to keep it fresh.
How Often Does Rear Differential Fluid Require Maintenance?
Kia recommends rear differential service every 20,000 to 30,000 miles depending on the model. However, if you begin to experience any of the warning signs of faulty differential performance, you will need to get a prompt inspection and maintenance as needed if the rear differential has defective fluid or any internal damage. Ultimately, this also reduced long-term operational costs by extending the rear differential’s life.
Benefits of Rear Differential Service
With the differential as one of the most important components when it comes to pleasant driving, routine service promotes exactly that: the most pleasant driving experience, especially when cornering. It also keeps the inner gear oil fresh and the internal gears and bearings protected and free of damage.
What Are the Warning Signs of a Defective Differential?
With the rear differential active whenever you drive, problems with this component usually come with warning signs that invite a prompt inspection and service response. If you start to experience any of these warning signs while driving, we invite you to Roper Kia in Joplin, MO for the inspection and rear differential service as needed:

What Happens During Rear Differential Service?
Our certified technician begins rear differential service by removing the component’s cover to expose the inner workings. Given that the inner parts are in good condition, the technician will remove the old fluid and clean the inner components of all old fluid. The cover will be placed back on the differential, and fresh fluid will be installed to specifications.Schedule Service
