Drivetrain Services

A properly functioning drivetrain provides power from the engine to the wheels to keep your vehicle running and get you to your destination. It’s that simple and that important. That’s why Jiffy Lube® offers drivetrain services, for two-wheel, four-wheel and all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles to keep your vehicle running strong and repair-free for as long as possible.

The drivetrain typically consists of up to three components, all of which need fluid replacement at different intervals. The differential, a transfer case (in four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles) and, of course, the transmission. Your Jiffy Lube® Technician can tell you when the fluid in the various drivetrain components in your vehicle need to be replaced.

Differential Service

Why is it important?
The differential is a special gear box located between the drive wheels of your vehicle. It allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds, as they must when turning a corner. Over time, high operating temperatures can cause the lubricating fluid in the differential to break down, developing a gummy texture that doesn’t properly lubricate the gears. Replacing the fluid can help you avoid premature wear on the gears in the differential, and can even help reduce wear on drive-wheel tires.

What is the service?
The old differential fluid is removed and replaced with new lubricating fluid based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.

Transfer Case Service

Why is it important?
The transfer case is a special gear box found in four-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles. It sends drive power from the engine to the front and rear axles. In all-wheel-drive vehicles, the transfer case helps to shift power from one axle to another, depending upon traction conditions. Lubricant fluid in the transfer case helps to keep its gears cool and turning smoothly. Replacing this fluid at appropriate intervals can help prevent premature wear and damage caused by contaminated or broken-down lubricant.

What is the service?
A special fluid is used to lubricate, cool and clean the gears in the transfer case. The old transfer case fluid is removed and replaced with new fluid that conforms to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
