Engine Repair and Rebuild

This involves replacing or resurfacing all the rundown parts in an engine. Regardless of your engine replacement needs, GPR Automotive has experienced engine rebuilders ready to assist you.

Transmission Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car transmissions aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the transmission's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle. To have your transmission maintained by experts, visit GPR Automotive.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact GPR Automotive in Schaumburg, IL. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 847-230-0242 to talk to the mechanics of GPR Automotive today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 847-230-0242 or visit GPR Automotive today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact GPR Automotive today.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to GPR Automotive's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 847-230-0242 to talk to the mechanics of GPR Automotive about your cylinder block problems.

Testimonials

  • I've really only been writing reviews for local businesses that I feel I can support. This is one of them. Great service and very nice guys. In addition to my own truck, I've taken my girlfriends car (brakes and some suspension work) as well as my mother's minivan (new muffler and a broken Sway bar). This is one of the very, very few auto shops I've been to where I don't feel like I am being given the run around or gotten any "sleezy" vibes. Jon (the owner, I believe) is a younger guy that's super attentive and gives really good explanations as to what the issues are, what he will be doing to fix it, and the time/cost. He seems to really enjoy what he does, and it is pretty obvious once you chat with him. I felt like a "regular" customer even during my first visit. On more than one occasion, he has brought me in back to the shop to physically show me the issue on the car while writing up a repair estimate. This makes me feel much better about continuing on with a repair as I can see with my own eyes that a broken sway bar is just that. I've never felt as though I am being up-sold or pushed to complete anything that doesn't need to be repaired, which is HUGE for me. I am not a "car guy" beyond just the basics, and I don't like being led on, especially when high ticket items are involved. When my girlfriend picked up her car, she also commented on the professionalism. These guys are definitely not your old school, greasy mechanics. The waiting area isn't huge, but it is nice, clean, and doesn't smell like exhaust fumes or oil. They offer coffee and have a customer restroom (also very clean....Seriously, the only auto repair shop I've been to where this was the case). I believe they have a free courtesy car (I've not needed it, just saw it parked out in front of the building). There is some cool literature and "demo" parts out to look through while you're waiting, and they provided me with a pretty detailed service schedule just for my truck. I like to support local businesses whenever I can, and in this case, it definitely worked out in my favor. I've got a new go to auto repair shop, and I gladly recommend them if you looking for somewhere legit, priced well, and run by people that seem to really stand by their work.
