A differential serves three functions - it lets the engine power turn the wheels, it slows down the rotation in the transmission to it sends power to the wheels and allows them to rotate at ‘different’ speeds. Hence the name ‘differential’. You can usually identifying differential problems when you experience things like noise and vibrations. However, there are some specific events such as a clunking or rumbling when cornering. You may also experience a banging sensation when you decelerate or if you're driving perfectly straight.
