All modern automobiles have a differential that adjusts the inner wheel spin to compensate for the greater speed and distance that the outer wheels must travel when your vehicle takes a corner. In rear-wheel-drive Mitsubishi models, the differential is on the rear axle and its moving parts are protected within a housing that also contains a dark lubricating fluid that reduces friction and heat, effectively protecting the moving parts. But just like every other vehicle part, the rear differential can wear out over time and require service. Mitsubishi trucks, such as the Mighty Max, and Raider that do much heavy towing or hauling in stop-and-go traffic can put additional strain on the rear differential that can cause it to wear out. If this happens, you will need a Rear Differential Service to restore your vehicle to factory specifications.
A problem with your rear differential will normally be easy to detect because of the noise. Outside of a catastrophic failure whereby your vehicle won’t move, a faulty rear differential will usually make some noise. The noise can range from bumps or clicks when you are turning a corner to loud screeches or grinding. In short, the telltale signs of a Rear Differential problem are noises from axle area or your vehicle won’t move at all.
