BG Driveline Service

The driveline is one of the least understood and most commonly overlooked automotive systems.

Preventive maintenance of the driveline is frequently neglected, but a failure in the driveline can be an expensive, dangerous and preventable problem.

Why Drivelines Need to Be Serviced

The complex gears in the differential of a vehicle operate under extreme pressure and heat. These conditions can break down gear lubricant, which leads to sludge buildup and metal debris.

The best way to prevent potential driveline problems is to remove sludge and debris with a fluid exchange.

How to Perform the BG Driveline Service

Use the BG MAX Multi Application Exchanger or the BG Drive Line Service Center to access driveline components, including rear differentials, front differentials, manual transmissions, and transfer cases. This tool allows for a quick and efficient fluid exchange inside these components.

For manual transmissions, transaxles, and transfer cases, use BG Syncro Shift II. For differentials, use BG Ultra Guard Limited Slip Heavy Duty or BG Ultra Guard Limited Slip Synthetic Gear Lubricant.

The BG MAX Multi Application Exchanger

The BG MAX Multi Application Exchanger provides a fast and easy way to service all types of automotive differentials, manual transmissions, and transfer cases, as well as changing oil in light- and heavy-duty vehicles. This machine is designed to be used with any petroleum-based oil.
