Four Wheel Drive Vehicles Require Additional Maintenance
If you own an all-wheel drive vehicle, or four wheel drive vehicle, it’s important to remember that you will need to schedule additional service over and above your normal routine auto maintenance services. Because maintenance likely differs between manufacturers, it’s critical to refer to your owner’s manual as well as the mechanics at St. Paul Automotive to chart out a plan for four wheel drive service.
Below are some of the more common auto repair services that should be performed on your four wheel drive vehicle:
- Locking Hub Service – Maintenance of your locking hubs is essential to your vehicles performance. We’ll disassemble your locking hubs then clean and lubricate them to ensure they switch properly from two wheel drive to four wheel drive.
- Transfer Case Service – A transfer case inspection should be done regularly to check fluid levels, look for dirt, debris and other signs of wears, and add additional lubricant to your transfer case when necessary.
- Differential System Service – Differential repair service involves draining and refilling your differential fluid to ensure it’s working properly.
