The differential is a vehicle component that the average driver rarely, if ever, thinks about. This is unfortunate because of how important a differential is. The differential allows a car's outside tire to spin at a greater speed than the other inside tire. A vehicles differential uses engine power to give wheels on the same axle the ability to spin independently and at differing speeds. This is crucial when making a turn.

Now that you understand how important your cars differential is when turning on Livermore roads, it is also important to learn about the three types of differentials. They are torque-vectoring, limited-slip and open differentials. The open differential is not only the oldest kind but it is also the most common one.

Learning about differentials is a small step towards becoming a well-informed car owner, and Livermore Lincoln appreciates that drivers are striving to become better informed regarding their vehicles.
