Transmission Repair Services

From manual to automatic transmission repair, G & L Automotive II in Alsip, IL 60803 knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!

Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 708-385-3626 to talk to the mechanics of G & L Automotive II about your transmission problems.

Clutches
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact G & L Automotive II to see if clutch replacement is necessary.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 12735 S Pulaski Rd for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, G & L Automotive II of Alsip, IL will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At G & L Automotive II, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts.Trust the automotive experts at G & L Automotive II for all your transmission repairs.

Service, Diagnose and Repair
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at G & L Automotive II today.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I been going to G & L Automotive since I got my first car in 2003. They been good to me ever since. They always get it done right the first time weather if its replacing the brakes, fixing a coolant leak, or doing a simple oil change. I even bought a used car off them in 2005 and still have the car today. They won a customer for life.


-Matt R.

I had a great first experience at G and L. I contacted for appointment on Saturday and was able to bring the car in on Monday. They diagnosed the problem with my exhaust system quickly and gave me a clear idea of the options. They were able to get the necessary parts from a nearby supplier and had be on my way in a little over an hour. The final price was exactly as estimated, and the personnel were a pleasure to deal with.


-Eric G.

Has worked on my entire families cars for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Honest, reliable service. I went to one of those quick lube chain places for an oil change thinking it was too small time to bother G&L. That won't happen again. I went to 2 different quick lube places and both times ended up having to come and get it redone and the bottom of my car cleaned of all the spilled oil. Apparently they used pliers to put the filter on and it sprayed my car . Thanks to Bud my mechanic, he explained the importance of avoiding the chains (the cheaper oil used, the rush to make numbers, etc). And G&L ends up replacing engines on one of the chains. They call him when they run into a problem. Moral of the story Isn't about oil changes. It's about honesty and consistency and you will find that here.

-Mitchell Garrett

I am an out of towner and was looking for a good shop to fix my car, I asked around at my work and it was suggested that I visit George at G&L. So I brought my car into the shop and explained to George that my steering wheel was shaking when I hit the brakes. George said he would take a look at it, before he looked at it he thought it might be the rotors causing the problem. So I gave him my keys and went to lunch. About an hour later George called up told me the front brakes and rotors need to be changed. The price I ended up paying was good and a relief because I just dropped a bunch of cash on my wive's car back home. George had my car back to me by the end of the day, the shaking stopped and I noticed that my car drove a little smoother. I was really lucky to find these guys, George is very approachable and gives off a good vibe. I also feel better because I try to avoid national chains and spend locally if possible even though my shop back home is a chain.
