BMW Differential Oil Service in Sarasota, FL

Do I Need My BMW’s Differential Oil Changed? 

A car's rear differential is a set of gears that allows the rear wheels to rotate at different speeds when the car is turning. This is necessary because the outside wheel travels a greater distance than the inside wheel when the car is turning, keeping your BMW’s ride smooth. The differential is located between the rear axles and is connected to the transmission by a driveshaft. The rear differential is an important part of the car's drivetrain and helps to ensure that the car can accelerate, brake, and corner safely. If the rear differential is damaged, it can cause the car to lose traction and become difficult to control.

If the oil which is used to lubricate the ring and pinion gears on the differential runs low or gets excessively dirty, it can lead to the differential failing and beginning to skip. Listen for a howling or whining sound as you drive or vibration in your turns, as this is a telltale sign of an issue with your differential. If you are experiencing any sort of issues with your BMW’s differential, you should bring your vehicle to a fully-trained mechanic in the Sarasota area at Jesse's Garage.

How Much Does It Cost To Change The Differential Fluid On A BMW?

Differential oil lasts for a fairly decent amount of time. But our certified mechanics here at Jesse’s Garage recommend having the differential oil on your BMW assessed and changed every 20,000-50,000 miles to keep your differential running at peak performance and to prevent more costly repairs from arising. The cost to change a BMW’s differential oil runs around $120-$250, depending on the type and quantity of fluid required. The job gets messy and is one best left to a local trusted mechanic near you.
