The differential in the Acura, RL is a key player in the powertrain. The differential performs three functions: it focuses the power of the engine to the wheels; provides the final gear reduction, slowing the speed of rotation of the transmission before transferring to the wheels; and allows the wheels to rotate at differing speeds, earning the differential its name. In simpler terms, the differential in the Acura, RL assists the drive wheels to compensate for turns by allowing one wheel to rotate at a different speed than the other wheels. .
The differential for the Acura, RL is usually the last stop in the complex process of transferring power from the vehicle’s engine to the wheels. From the engine, power is transferred to the transmission, and then to the differential, which... View more splits the engine’s torque into two halves; each half going to one wheel. Fluid within the differential allows the gears within to operate smoothly; if the fluid is broken down with age or has leaked out, the gears will wear out prematurely. View less
