4X4 SERVICES

4X4 SERVICES, St. Petersburg, FL

The technicians at American Transmission & Air have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.

We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.


Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact American Transmission & Air today for differentials examination and servicing.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at American Transmission & Air, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let American Transmission & Air replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit American Transmission & Air today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 727-344-5900 or visit American Transmission & Air today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit American Transmission & Air in St. Petersburg, FL 33710 today.

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 American Transmission & Air for all your transmission repairs.

Transmissions
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 American Transmission & Air today.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. American Transmission & Air can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

TESTIMONIALS

I brought my Cadillac in thinking I had to have the transmission replaced. The dealer said it would be $4000 so I brought it in to see what they could do for me. Dan not only walked me thru all of the options, he diagnosed it for free. After inspecting it he said he could repair it instead of rebuilding it for only $460! Three months later, and my car runs great! Thank you so much!

HONEST staff !!!! I'll take my Jeep here any day over anyone else. They were very open and honest about what I didn't need to spend money on to get done that another auto shop told me was pertinent.

They have always been good to me. They have been working on my 2 cars for a few years now . Quick and reasonable. I would recommend them and I do. Have had no problems with anything they have done yet. They got me out of a major bind this week and I want to thank them again! Good mechanics that you can trust are hard to find. And I think I found some working here.

Fair & Honest Place, These guys saved me a bundle, My truck transmission was slipping, so I took it to a few other shops first, They both wanted to replace the transmission, for way more than I could afford. A friend of mine told me about this place. So I Figured lets try one more store, cause I was thinking of trading it in, I am so glad I tried here, they took care of it, and saved me a whole bunch of cash. It didn't need a new transmission after all. Just an honest mechanic, and I didn't really want a monthly payment again neither... It's been over a month now, and all is working great. Thanks you guys ROCK
