Meet Our New Service Writer - Will Lorenzo

  I have been in the automotive business most of my life. I started out washing cars for my Dad's car lot when I was 8 years old. I spent 26 years working for a family owned repair shop here in Baltimore. I took some time off to take care of family and home projects and now I’m back. I chose Paul’s Automotive because it’s the same family style business. The shop has great techs and the commitment to great work is the best I have seen. I hope to see my old friends and hope to make  new ones. Will Lorenzo

Differential oil, which is also known as gear oil, is thicker compared to engine oil. As a lubricating oil, gear oil prevents vehicles' metallic components from damage and increases their overall performance. The oil also makes it easy for cars to make corners in a hassle-free way. The heavy-duty automobile fluid works under high pressure to ensure that all the gears, clutch packs, and bearings are continuously oiled, keeping all the differentials working smoothly and safely. If the gear oil runs out or gets dirty or water contaminated, the metal components can end up permanently damaged. To avoid damaging the transmissions, clutch packs, and differentials, you have to look out for the symptoms of bad gear oil. Burning Smell from the Differential When you notice a bad smell coming from your gearbox, you should take it as a sign of bad differential oil which can be contaminated hence not operating as it should be.

When you notice indicator lights on your dashboard, it is vital to check your vehicle immediately. The "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light indicates there may be a repair or replacement of your engine or transmission. It means there is more than a routine repair or service requirement, and instead, a system failure to the fuel, transmission, ignition, or emissions. Ignoring these signs can lead to serious problems, resulting in complete shutdown and high expenses, including towing, emergency roadside assistance, and more extensive replacement. Getting Your Vehicle Assessed for Damage and Diagnosed for Repairs Initially, when the light indicator turns on, it will show a solid color, which means your car is due for an assessment.
