Automatic Transmission Rebuild

A transmission automobile part transfers power from the engine to the drive wheels and helps the engine accommodate a range of speeds. An automatic transmission routes the power from the car's engine to the drive wheels while shifting between gears automatically so you can concentrate on regulating both power and speed.


Most automatic transmissions incorporate the following major components: a torque converter, a planetary gear unit, and a hydraulic pump. The main difference between an automatic transmission and a manual transmission is that the torque converter operates the clutch automatically and not by manual shifting. The torque converter automatically adjusts the engine speed which supplies the correct amount of power to the wheels of the vehicle. Transmission torque converters could not work without transmission fluid. Transmission fluid helps to lubricate internal gears and components. Transmission fluid also helps with the force and pressure needed for switching gears. Therefore it is recommended to routinely check the color of your transmission fluid so that you know if it is need of servicing or not.

I went to see Mike and the guys at Transcraft when my F150 stopped going in reverse. I searched around for shop to do the work and Transcraft was recommended to me by another mechanic here in Chicago.

Mike was recommended to me by another mechanic, and now I know why: he's not only a great mechanic to a "lay" audience, but he's greatly appreciated by his professional peers!

I have been working with Mike for years and I would not take transmissions anywhere else. He is incredibly knowledgeble and honest. He stands behind his work and have very competitve prices. Don't bother going anywhere else!
