Because your differential has such an effect on the way you drive, it is extremely important that all differential service be conducted by certified, experienced technician, otherwise you may find your truck handling in a very odd, rough, or unpredictable manner.
Understanding a little bit about what your vehicle differential actually does inside your vehicle is key to being able to recognize the signs of failure, and will help you make the right decisions about what kind of maintenance it should undergo. When turning, your wheels must spin at slightly different rates in order to make the turn. Especially in 4 wheel drive vehicles, it is important for your vehicle to make these mechanical calculations fluidly, without sacrificing power or efficiency. This is precisely what your differential is designed to achieve.
In order to understand the signs of a differential problem, it helps to understand the mechanics of what would be occurring if the differential were not present at all. This will help you identify for yourself when a differential repair or service is necessary. Without the differential in your vehicle, one of your wheels would be forced to slip whenever you made a turn. This would cause a great deal of strain on your axle and wear down the bearings well before their time. With this in mind, if you begin to experience difficulty making turns even though your steering wheel spins easily, it could easily be an issue developing with your differential. This kind of issue can especially be felt if your vehicle is a dedicated 4 wheel drive truck, or you regularly tow a load.

Accurate Automotive twice found problems I'd been dealing with for 2+ years that several other shops couldn't find and charged a minimal fee to do so. I highly recommend them.Maureen Blindu
Accurate Automotive is my new best friend! Diagnosed a warranty issue on my Honda HRV and saved me $2200 over the dealership repair. Lee followed up to make sure the dealership was handling the issue. Great service and integrity. Happy to have found such an honest and reliable mechanic.Rebecca S.
Lee who owns Accurate Automotive is very knowledgeable, personable and service is definitely his #1 Priority. If it weren't for Lee I wouldn't have gotten started on the restoration of my 1973 Corvette which has been extensive. A complete Overhaul and Rebuild that has brought my Hot Rod back to Life. I will always recommend Accurate Automotive to others. They're the Best!Patrick Donovan

We have had a variety of cars both new and old and have dealt with other shops and dealerships for repairs, I wish we had found Accurate Automotive sooner! Their customer service is the best by far and they actually care about your vehicle and you as a customer.Angela J.
Everything was great! I think my favorite part was that they didn't try to sell me on anything, Aussie(Josh :D) made a recommendation for my next service(new air filter- not a $500 package or anything). They were very friendly, fast, and affordable! The free rides they offer while they service your vehicle - another must-have!!!! I will be back 100%! Highly recommend!Ashley Snoozy
