The differential of your car is its rear end, where all the power of the engine is connected to the road via your rear wheel tires. The gears of differentials can spin at around five thousand times a minute, and have to carry the full weight of your car and whatever you are towing! The gears themselves are lubricated with oil and a no filtration system to keep it fresh.
You may not know much about transfer cases, but if you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you’ve got one. It makes sure you have power available for both the front and rear axles. For example, if you have a rear-wheel drive SUV, power goes to the rear wheels until you need 4-wheel drive. That’s when the transfer case steps in and transfers some of the power to the front wheels as well. You might use a shift lever to go into 4-wheel drive, or it could be a button on the dash or it might even go into 4-wheel drive automatically, depending on your vehicle
