4X4 SERVICES

The technicians at Epic Automotive 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.


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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive for all your transmission repairs.

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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Epic Automotive.

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. Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive 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 314-423-0011 or visit Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive in Saint Louis, MO 63114 today.

    This was my first time having my vehicle serviced at Epic Automotive... The service was superb... and very professional.. If my vehicle is in need of service in the future I will be returning to Epic Automotive.


  • -Justin W.

    In case anyone was thinking of another establishment to trust your car with, don't! Epic not only is the only place my entire family takes their vehicles, but the only place any of my friends do as well!I could go on for hours where John has dropped what he was doing to ensure that I came first. Do not waste your time with anyone else.. Epic is the only home you need to know for your car!


  • -Amy H.

    Great service. Great price. Great people. Highly recommended!


  • -Amber C.

    Would definitely recommend Epic Automotive. Very friendly and has always done great work on my car.


  • -Mr. Porter

    I have no complaints whatsoever. The staff was respectful, friendly, and down to earth. The facility is pretty clean and the service was great. It's refreshing to find a place that actually fixes the problem instead of selling you stuff that you probably won't need just so they can make a few bucks off of you. I drove from Granite City, IL to check them out and it was worth the drive. I'll definitely be coming back if I need anything done to my car stereo.


  • -Toney W.

    Best experience I've ever had, Great customer service, quality of their work is excellent, and the shop feels welcoming, had my brakes and rotors replaced for a very good price, they answered any questions I had about my vehicle parts warranty's and more, I'll be back for a tune up my brakes are awesome and quite lol..they really do care for there customer's, Epic Automotive is #1, I would recommend them to all my friends and family. THANK YOU EPIC TEAM!! ....


  • -Kris L.

    I took my Explorer in to Epic last week to have the seat heater replaced in the drivers seat on a recommendation from co-workers. The shop was surprisingly neat and clean and made me trust them even more. Also when the actual repair took longer than originally thought they still cut me a deal on the labor rate to earn my continued business.


  • -Lawrence M.

    Called around for AC service prices. They have the best deal in town! Great guys and good service!


  • -Veronica S.

    Professional, Knowledgeable, Fair, Friendly, Fast Service. They got my car done that same day and didn't charge me an arm and a leg. And the shop looks great! Makes you feel like you've walked into the right place. I will definitely be going back to Epic for more repairs on my car.


  • -Remington V.

    These are honest mechanics. Have taken my car here exclusively for the last two and a half years. They have always been willing to answer any questions I had about the function of a part, whether I actually needed it, and whether it was still under warranty from past work they had done.


  • -Kathi C.

    Amazing integrity. I took my car in & asked John to fix the windows & a tail light. All 4 of my power-windows had, at some point, quit working, and started working again; they were taking turns & when it came to the driver's window not working, I'd had enough. But, once the tail light was replaced, the windows were all working. So, he DIDN'T run the $100 diagnostic on a problem that no longer existed. Windows are still working great, several months later. That was the 3rd time John had gone out of his way (and reduced his income) to save me money, and provide honest service. This is now my auto-repair-shop for life.
