What does your vehicle’s differential do?
Power is delivered from your vehicle’s engine through the transmission and on to the differential to turn the wheels. A differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds. This is important when you are turning a corner as the wheels on the inside of the corner must rotate at a slower speed than the wheels on the outside.
Just as your engine needs to have its old oil changed, the differential fluid (a very thick type of oil) also needs to be changed. Over the course of time, the differential fluid oxidizes and breaks down, loosing its ability to lubricate the gears and bearings in the differential. This can lead to expensive repairs.
We’re mechanics and we love to repair vehicles but we’d be happier maintaining your vehicle so that it never needed those costly repairs.
We can protect your differential from oil breakdown by performing a differential service with TerraClean Gear Oil Treatment. It improves the transfer of heat in the system, which reduces oxidation. It also protects the system components from moisture build up.
It helps prevent metal to metal wear that can lead to expensive damage in your differential.
Our technicians replace old differential fluid with fresh differential fluid, ensuring that moisture and dirt are removed from the system.
TerraClean Gear Oil Treatment is added to the differential. For Limited Slip (Positraction) or Locking Differentials, TerraClean Limited Slip Treatment is applied.
Benefits of a Differential Service
- Your differential will be cleaned of contaminants that can damage your components.
- Your differential will have better heat transfer and the oxidization process will be slowed on the new fluid increasing the life of these valuable components.
“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.”
I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops. After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop. I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft.
Norm at the front desk provides unreal service each and every time. Owner Tony is very professional and friendly. Car Craft is definitely doing their best to become the neighbourhood garage. Great staff, and great work.
Norm Grube is knowledgeable & trustworthy.
Professional, courteous, competent and friendly
I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you.
Norm has been very professional.

Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us.
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future.
Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service.
Well done and great service
Friendly staff and very knowledgeable
