There are numerous parts on your car, and it can be overwhelming to try to learn every single one of them in one gulp. But learning a little bit about your car will make it easier to talk to the mechanic when you need work done. At Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek in Walnut Creek, CA, we're all about teaching our customers more about vehicles so that they feel comfortable every time that they talk to our mechanics. The differential system is a little-understood part of a vehicle.

You might not know it, but every time you turn your car, you're using the differential, which is responsible for distributing the power from the engine to the wheels. And the differential is able to distribute the power to the different wheels in different amounts.

But you might be thinking that the weight should always be distributed evenly between the four wheels. This actually isn't always true. For instance, one time that you might want weight distributed unevenly is when you're turning the car because the wheels on the inside of the turn have to travel less distance.
