Differential or Transaxle Service and Repair in Berkeley, CA

Welcome to Oceanworks, the premier Berkeley auto repair shop that offers differential and transaxle service and repairs. Our nationally ASE certified technicians can get to the root cause of any differential or transaxle problems, fix your car, and get it back on the road.

A differential (primarily used in rear-wheel drive configurations) is an enclosed system of gears containing its own lubricating fluid that performs two main functions: to distribute engine power to the wheels, and to allow the wheels to spin at different speeds.

A transaxle (primarily used in front-wheel drive configurations) performs similar function, but it is a combination of a differential and a transmission enclosed in one case.

Signs that a Differential or Transaxle needs service or repairs:

  • Grinding noise from the gears
  • Leaking differential fluid
  • Apparent tire damage
  • Whining or rattling noise

Above-mentioned signs point to differential/transaxle problems. In the extreme cases, it becomes difficult to control a vehicle and may lead to accidents.
