New Gear Additive Treats Leaking Axles and Differentials

Axle and Differential Gear Repair seals leaks, reduces grinding, whining and clunking

Bar’s Leaks introduces Gear Repair, a treatment additive designed to extend gear system life by stopping leaks, reducing noise and improving gear performance in automotive, heavy-duty, agricultural, marine and industrial gear oils. 

“Gear systems are complicated, vital to a vehicle’s operation and include a lot of moving parts that can fail if not properly maintained,” says Clay Parks, vice president of development, Bar’s Leaks. “Our Gear Repair solution stops leaks and enhances even the best gear oil, so the system works more efficiently and lasts longer. Stopping current leaks and preventing new ones from forming helps prevent damage to internal parts that could result in a costly repair.”

Over time, gear oil leaks can occur, resulting in improper lubrication and gearbox overheating. Grinding, whining, clunking or a burning smell coming from a gearbox or differential are signs that the system is starting to fail. 

Bar’s Leaks Gear Repair (P/N 1816) is formulated to revitalize the gear fluid with a proprietary blend of fresh additives. The formula’s seal conditioner protects and reconditions seals, while extreme pressure anti-wear agents provide excellent metal-to-metal wear protection to reduce noise and gear temperatures.

Bar’s Leaks Gear Repair works in all manual gearboxes, differentials and limited-slip axles. It is safe to use on differential axles (limited slip, posi, open, electric), gears (hypoid, spider, worm, rack), transfer case (AWD, 4WD, gear oil, ATF), manual standard transmission (gear oil, engine oil, ATF), hubs and marine applications. Bar’s Leaks Gear Repair can be mixed with all synthetic and conventional petroleum GL-4, GL-5, MT-1 gear oil grades, including 75W-90, 80W-90, 75W-140, 85W-140 and all others.
