4:55 – This section is on the “forgotten fluids” in your car, specifically, the differential. This uses thick fluid and can be thousands of dollars to repair if you don’t change the fluid when recommended. No matter how clean it looks, you want to change it.

10:01 – If your car has 4-wheel drive, you have two differentials — one going to the rear and one going to the front. Steve recommends changing them at the same time.
