The technicians at Extreme Auto 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.
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 Extreme Auto 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 Extreme Auto, 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 Extreme Auto 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 Extreme Auto 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 801-444-3787 or visit Extreme Auto 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 Extreme Auto in Layton, UT 84041 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 Extreme Auto 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 Extreme Auto 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. Extreme Auto can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
...I want to give a huge kudos to Lael at Extreme Auto for his honesty and professionalism.

I am a car enthusiast and mechanic and usually take care of my own cars. However, after I completed an engine overhaul for my daughter's car, I kept getting a service engine light code that prevented me from getting her car registered. After spending hours on the problem and still not corrected, other priorities took precedent and I wanted to find a place I could engage to have them focus on the problem while I tended to more pressing issues. I found Extreme Auto and gave them a call. I was immediately impressed with their willingness to help and their knowledge about the situation. Extreme Auto invested the time it took to correctly diagnose the problem without throwing new parts at it in hope of solving the problem like most dealerships would. They followed through and methodically chased down the problem until they had an answer. I was very happy with the service, the expertise, the dedication and the cost. They went way above and beyond on this one, and for that I am grateful. Nice work Extreme Auto!!!
They have worked on my car multiple times in the last 4 plus years, and I always get excellent service and good honest work. Nobody else works on my car, period!
Very honest, which is hard to find in an auto repair shop. They have worked on multiple vehicles of ours and other family members, and we have all been very satisfied. I even took my car in once for a check engine light, and they did a full diagnostic for free. They really take care of you once you're a customer. Not to mention, Cindy at the front desk, is an absolute sweetheart.
Because of Extreme Auto, my car has over 230,000 miles and runs great. I get cost effective problem solvers with repair service I can depend on.
Finally found high quality and confidence from a team I can trust.
After many years of having my car repaired at the dealership, I have found that Extreme Auto does all repair and maintenance work quicker and less expensive. Extreme Auto always has time for me.
Not knowing anything about cars or car repairs, I have worried that other shops were taking advantage of me. Extreme Auto was different. They took care of my questions and gave me my worse case scenario bid, and there were no surprieses. They even had my car done the same day I brought it in.
They know what they are doing and had my car ready really fast and cheap!
Trudy at the front desk was wonderful. I took my Mom's car in to be inspected. When it didn't pass, they charged me 1/2 price and offered to have me bring it in a few days later and have it retested, which I did. It flunked again. Jr was very patient and suggested that I drive the car 30 miles and come back again. Third time was a charm! I appreciate it their Customer Service and their professional demeanor. 5 stars. I'll take the car there again.
They are fantastic! Always helpful and honest. Good prices. quick service!

I've taken my cars to Extreme Auto for more than four years, after they were recommended to me by an auto parts store. Even more than their expertise with cars, I value their ability to advise me regarding possible solutions to my car problems. They tailor their recommendations to me, to my personal situation. They hire the very best people; from their innovative and effective mechanics to the wonderfully efficient and sensitive receptionist. It's nice to have someone understand the frustrations and stress of having a car not work. Here is the bottom line: Extreme Auto is worth your trust. They will find a way to solve your car repair problems. Extreme Auto has the mechanics and staff you are looking for. Problem solved.
I've dealt with Extreme Auto twice, and I am very impressed with them. I had a broken head gasket in my Ford Ranger. I shopped around and found that their prices were comparable to other mechanics. They did a great job. I have had no further problems with my truck, and it has been three years now. The other time, my wife went in with a check engine light on her Honda Civic. They ran a diagnostic check, and told her it was just a gas cap problem, replaced the gas cap, and sent her on her way. Very honest I would recommend.
