Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
Automatic transmissions shift gears seamlessly, optimizing driving performance by adjusting gears based on various factors. These transmissions typically feature four to five forward gear ratios, along with a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting between gears occurs automatically once the car is in Drive, eliminating the need for a clutch pedal or manual gear shifting, as in a Manual Transmission.

Given the complexity of automatic transmissions, issues should be meticulously assessed by professional auto mechanics.

Clutch
Your car's clutch serves the vital function of enabling the engine and gearbox to engage and disengage during gear changes. This process allows the engine's output shaft to keep spinning while relieving pressure on the gears, preventing them from shifting improperly.

After the next gear is smoothly selected, the clutch re-engages the engine and gearbox, restoring forward momentum. Over time, particularly in manual transmission vehicles operated incorrectly, the clutch can wear down, diminishing its effectiveness. A damaged clutch can lead to mid-gear change re-engagements of the engine and gearbox, which can significantly impact your transmission's health.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
Four-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles boast differential gears, front and rear axles, and a transfer case connected to the transmission. The maintenance of four-wheel drive vehicles necessitates care for the transfer case, front and rear differentials, and transmission fluids. For top-tier service regarding your four-wheel drive transmission, visit us at 1076 E Park Ave.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
In front-wheel drive vehicles, the engine exclusively drives the front wheels. Power flows through the transmission to the final drive, then splits and propels the two front wheels through the drive axles. Front-wheel drive vehicles position the engine, transmission, and related components at the front of the car. For front-wheel drive transmission repairs, rely on Moberg's Automotive Repair in Libertyville, IL.

Manual Transmission
Manual Transmission vehicles involve the use of a clutch pedal and gear shift to manually change gears, determined by the vehicle's speed. Manual transmissions can encompass two to eight gears and are categorized into front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance than automatic ones.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a component of four-wheel drive systems in four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. It receives power from the transmission and directs it to both front and rear axles. Transfer cases can be chain-driven in most contemporary vehicles. These components connect to the transmission, front and rear axles through drive shafts to ensure maximum control.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the term "transmission" usually refers to the gearbox. The transmission employs gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device.

Vehicle owners can opt for the replacement of their car's transmission with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired, or used transmission. Our seasoned service technicians can guide you in making the best decision for your vehicle and budget.

Transmission Service, Diagnose and Repair
The transmission interfaces with key vehicle components and must function optimally for your safety. Transmission services include filter replacements and fluid drainage to prevent transmission damage.

Common transmission issues that may necessitate repairs include shifting problems, slipping, stalling, fluid leakage, and the illumination of the service light. If you suspect your vehicle may require transmission repair, do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with Moberg's Automotive Repair today.

Transmission Fluid Questions and Answers

What are signs that you need to change your transmission fluid?
The most obvious sign that it is time to change your transmission fluid is a warning light on the dashboard. Other signs may include the car's engine revving when you accelerate or go around corners, difficulty shifting, a chattering noise when you start driving, a slight burning smell or a puddle under your car. Like always, if you are uncertain about a noise, leak or feeling, we encourage you to bring your vehicle to us here at Moberg's Automotive Repair in Libertyville.

How often do you really need to change transmission fluid?
It's important to change your transmission fluid, but the type of transmission you have affects your ideal changing interval. Most cars on the road today have an automatic transmission. If you drive a car with an automatic transmission you need to change your transmission fluid every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. If your car has a manual transmission, it's recommended that you get the transmission fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

Does a car run better after transmission fluid change?
Yes. Changing your car's transmission fluid regularly is a great way to improve fuel efficiency. Your vehicle's transmission will run smoother after changing the fluid, which means your engine will perform better.

What is the average life of a transmission?
Regular fluid changes, filter replacements, and following a proper maintenance schedule are crucial for maximizing transmission life. Neglecting these can significantly shorten its lifespan. Most modern automatic transmissions, with proper maintenance, can last anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 miles. Manual transmissions typically last longer, often exceeding 250,000 miles with good care.

Which type of transmission lasts the longest?
Opting for a manual transmission means simpler upkeep. They require less frequent servicing than automatics and aren't picky about specific oil types. Cars with stick shifts often enjoy a longer lifespan compared to their automatic siblings of the same model.

Absolute best auto repair experience that I've ever had. I live in the city, but Moberg's was so trustworthy and knowledgeable that I plan to come all the way up to Libertyville for future repairs. Well worth the extra drive. A++

I have had alot of repairs done at Mobergs and i know that i can trust them. They have given me honest assessments, telling me when i do need work and when i don't. I live over 45 minutes from there now, but still have my repairs done with them because of the trust factor.

Moberg's is the only place I will bring my car for repairs. I've had two major repairs done in the past couple months, and each time, Moberg's provides a superior experience. I am always able to get my car in quickly, and I love that they clearly explain each part of the repair to me in plain language that a non-expert like me can understand. I appreciate their efficiency, and they are always so kind and polite when I come to pick up my vehicle.

This place is fantastic. I was looking for a garage that would not tell me everything is wrong with my car just to sell me something to get their commission. I found that place at Moberg's Automotive. They are honest, friendly, loving people. They gained my trust from the first visit, and I will never go anywhere else if I can help it for as long as I live in the area. When Mr. Pete (the owner) says something needs fixing, it needs fixing. He will even go out of his way to help you. For example, just yesterday, my wife dropped her wedding ring under the passenger seat of my truck. I called Moberg's, scheduled an appointment, went up there, and they got it out. Although I took up their time, energy and space, Mr. Pete refused to accept any payment, saying, smiling, that he was glad to do it for me. This is the kind of experience you will have every time you go to Moberg's Automotive. They are experts, professionals, and friends. You will not regret your visit.
