Recommendations for a transmission shop on the far northside of Chicago

I need a recommendation for a good transmission shop on the northside of Chicago. Bonus points for Evanston, Rogers Park, and the surrounding areas.

I don't want to go too far from that area because the car will have to be towed.

Just stopped in to say that if you don't find a good recommendation here, you can try the Car Talk Mechanics Files.

Response by poster: Norms I had already contacted due to glowing reviews and a 5-star rating on But alas, they don't do transmissions and the place they referred me to, the name of which escapes me now, has only poor reviews.

Runge referred me to Chicago Transcraft which has gotten good reviews even though there are only 3.

Alba will be getting a call.

thanks all
