The technicians at Hi-Tech 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.
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 Hi-Tech Automotive.
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 Hi-Tech Automotive 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 Hi-Tech Automotive, 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 Hi-Tech 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 Hi-Tech 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 204-261-9591 or visit Hi-Tech 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 Hi-Tech Automotive in Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 2G6 today.
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 Hi-Tech Automotive for all your transmission repairs.
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 Hi-Tech Automotive today.
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. Hi-Tech Automotive can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Great customer service with lots of update and keeping you informed. very fair pricing. It's nice to feel valued as well as the technicians are also speedy and cordial. Thanks again.
Very professionally operated facility. The pride that they take in their work and their shop definitely shows!
A very good place to take your car! The mechanics are very professional and know their stuff. One of them even brought me to the back to show me exactly what was wrong with my SUV. Seeing is believing! The prices are fair and the quality of work is excellent.
Prompt and accurate service, watching out for my safety and pocket book by recommending services needed to insure I get to where I am getting and eliminating early wear and tear.
Very knowledgeable. Great at communicating what the problem was with my vehicle.
I find the service at Hi-Tech to be extremely good. In fact the day after I had work done on my car I sent a friend over with his vehicle to get work done. He really likes Hi-Tech Auto as well. I also recommended Hi-Tech to a third customer you currently have for his vehicle. Keep up the great work! I'll be coming back for more work soon.
VERY IMPRESSED with my first experience at Hi Tech! They were able to DIAGNOSE AND REPAIR the problem with my SUV that my dealership could not. They provided me with an explanation of the problem as well as a very detailed estimate. I was even able to talk to my mechanic one on one. My repair was swift and I was back on the road in no time. The staff was very knowledgeable. I will definitely be returning for all my maintenance work and future repairs.
These guys are great! I've been to quite a few other shops in Winnipeg, but this was by far my best experience. The drop off was simple and they asked me the questions needed to target my issue and not waste any time. They called me quickly with an estimate of what I needed and had me back on the road the same day! Prices were reasonable and the repair was explained clearly in a way I understood. They kept me informed and that made me very happy! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone!!!
Needed a muffler repair, got in immediately and it was repaired promptly. Total cost was lower then the estimate, as they were so quick. The issues were explained very clearly and thoroughly, and all options of repair were made available. Very efficient, honest and friendly, 10/10 would recommend! I'll definitely be returning for future car needs!
I had an amazing experience at Hi-Tech thanks to the incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. They took extra time to explain my car issues in layman's terms so that I could make an informed decision about my car repairs which I greatly appreciated. I felt no pressure at all to do the repairs they recommended. I felt they genuinely wanted what was best for me and my car. Fair pricing and you get what you pay for here. Highly recommend.
