Rexburg and Idaho Falls 4x4 Services
The technicians at Oswald Service and Repair have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD vehicles have a 4-wheel driving system that all receive torque from the engine at the same time in order to move your vehicle. This system has a center differential which helps each tire to rotate at different speeds to ensure that your vehicle drives smoothly.
We understand the special needs of 4x4 and AWD vehicles. Here are some of the services we offer at Oswald Service:
Transmission maintenance is very important to the overall safety of your vehicle. It is connected to many different working parts and transfer power to other systems. In order to prevent your transmission from having issues on the road, proper maintenance and inspections are needed. Some of these typical services include transmission fluid flushes and filter changes. Whether you experience transmission slipping, stalling, or the service light has turned on - bring your vehicle into Oswald Service and Repair today.
The transfer case is a component of a 4x4 wheel drive system and all wheel drive cars. The transfer case gets power from your vehicle’s transmission and then sends this power to the front and rear axles of your car. Most modern transfer cases work by chains rather than older models which used gears. 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 Oswald Service and Repair for all your transmission repairs.
An 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 your vehicle turns, the outer wheels go a farther distance than the inside wheels, as well as the front wheels versus the back wheels. Because of this, all four of your vehicle’s wheels travel at different speeds which is where the differential comes in. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked periodically. Contact Oswald Service and Repair today for differential servicing.
The driveline of your vehicle is what connects the engine and the transmission to your wheel axles, which consists of all of the parts known as the powertrain aside from the engine and transmission. Driveline failure would actually cause total vehicle failure because energy would not be transferred properly from the engine to the wheels. This is why it is so important to have your driveline inspected and well maintained. And, Oswald Service and Repair, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
A wheel alignment is a term that many vehicle owners are familiar with. It refers to the service in which a technician adjusts the angles of your vehicle’s wheels so that they are set correctly and to factory recommended specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Due to the complexity of wheel alignments, it takes special equipment and training to do right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Oswald Service and Repair.
The wheel bearings are a component that is found on the inside of your vehicle’s wheels. The bearings help the wheels to be able to spin without issue and are also connected to the brake system. Wheel bearings tend to wear out over time with regular use of your vehicle, which can cause a vibrating sensation while you drive. The recommendations for when to replace the wheel bearings depends on the make and model of your vehicle as well as your own driving habits. A regular inspection at our shop will allow us to inspect the wheel bearings and let you know when they need to be replaced. Oswald Service and Repair can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
