The technicians at Dynotech Auto Repair 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.
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 Dynotech Auto Repair for all your transmission repairs.
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 Dynotech Auto Repair today for differentials examination and servicing.
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 Dynotech Auto Repair, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
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. Dynotech Auto Repair can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
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 Dynotech Auto Repair 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 Dynotech Auto Repair 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 651-287-0379 or visit Dynotech Auto Repair 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 Dynotech Auto Repair in Saint Paul, MN 55104 today.
Most honest auto shop I've ever been to. This is they only place I bring my vehicle for service.
High recommendation (though didn't need service on car). Brakes squeaking, so googled closest shop. Stopped by, he glanced at a few things, then offered to take a ride to listen. Said it was ok.
Tim and Josh are great, totally honest.
We don't even live in St Paul anymore, but still take our car here. Very trustworthy and reliable.
These guys are the only mechanics I trust with my car because they have certainly earned my trust and my loyalty. They are honest about what needs to be done immediately versus what can be deferred and are conscious of budget limitations when recommending options. They communicate throughout the process...I've never felt like they are taking advantage of me...

I have such great respect for these guys! They are a small business in a big city but treat you like your family! I will send anyone and everyone there!
Great people that will take great care of you and your car. Couldn't ask for a better place to bring your ride. Whether it's a classic from the beginning of time to the most luxurious cars of today they are meticulous in getting the job done correctly at an affordable price...
I can't say enough good things about Tim and Josh. They're honest, down to earth and go above and beyond. I was referred to them by a family member and even though I've moved away from the area, I still take my car here. They've helped me when I'm in a pinch and need work done ASAP. 5 stars isn't enough for them!!
