Our Mission

To provide the businesses and residents of Mc Henry County with a dependable, capable, honest, and reasonably priced facility for the maintenance, diagnosis, and repair of their automobile, truck, and industrial transmissions.


Advantage Transmission is a full service automotive and light truck transmission repair facility, not a wholesale transmission remanufacturer.

At Advantage Transmission, you will get back the same transmission that you sent in, rebuilt, and you will pay only for the parts it needed. The practice of rebuilding the transmission that came out of the vehicle avoids all of the problems of mis-matched and improper calibration associated with exchange units. No one can deny the fact that the best transmission for the vehicle is the one it came with from the factory.
Mechanic Checking An Engine & Transmission — Mechanic In Woodstock, IL
The aim of our fleet program is not to sell as many transmissions as possible to whomever will buy them, but, instead, to provide a select group of quality-conscious businesses with the means to handle transmission repairs with confidence and dependability.

The prices we quote are for complete overhauls. They include the master overhaul kit, a rebuilt torque converter, all clutches, bands, seals and power flushing the transmission cooler and refilling the system with fresh fluid. The only parts not included in the price are those necessary to repair extreme or unusual damage. These are considered "Hard Parts" and do not come in the overhaul kit. They are priced out individually, if needed. The practice of listing hard parts separately was adopted to help stabilize pricing at lower levels instead of inflating prices on transmission types that are known for their possibility of expensive hard part damage.

All of our work comes with a 12 month , 12 thousand mile warranty and although we are an independent shop , our warranty is nationwide through the AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION REBUILDERS ASSOCIATION, or "ATRA".
