Maintenance and automobile:
The differential lube level should be checked by Automotive Technology of West Islip mechanic with every oil change. Some differentials require periodic cleaning and repacking of wheel bearings. If you drive an SUV or light truck, and especially if you pull a boat (meaning these components may get submerged in water), axle lube should be changed every year. Please refer to your owner’s manual for factory recommended maintenance intervals for your specific automobile.

Automotive Technology mechanics are mechanics in differentials and axles. Differential problems should be checked out as soon as possible. Symptoms include clunking when you accelerate or shift between drive and reverse, or a high-pitched howling type of noise.

Drive Shaft & U-Joints
A drive shaft and universal joints (U-joints) connect the transmission to the rear axle on most rear wheel drive automobiles. Four wheel drives also use drive shafts and U-joints.

Maintenance and automobile:
U-joints should be inspected by Automotive Technology of West Islip mechanic at every oil change (and are inspected as part of Automotive Technology’s ProtectCheck). SUVs and light trucks often have drive shaft slip joints that require lubrication. Please refer to your owner’s manual for factory recommended maintenance intervals for your specific automobile.

Bad U-joints often squeak when accelerating from a stop, exhibit a clunking noise when shifting between drive and reverse, or a shuddering when accelerating or driving. Bad U-joints can cause the drive shaft to separate from the automobile—causing damage to the automobile and requiring potentially expensive repairs. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Automotive Technology if you notice any of these symptoms .

Bearings
Bearings in the wheels are about the only bearings requiring routine maintenance, common in rear wheel drive automobiles.
