Descriptions of Our Services

Auto Brakes Service

From the brake pedal to hydraulic brake fluid, brake master cylinder to power brake booster, drum brakes to disc brakes and electronic anti-lock brake sensors, Our technicians know every part of your brake system inside and out and can perform brake repair on any make and model.

Oil Changes

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup will kill your engine.

Tire Repair and Sales

Our technicians will inspect, rotate, and balance your tires, as scheduled by your vehicle's manufacturer. And when it's time to replace them, we will determine the correct size and kind of tire you need for the car and make sure they are correctly installed.

Check Engine Light

Modern vehicles come equipped with an onboard computer diagnostic system that monitors your vehicle's operations. That means the system can detect anything from a loose fuel cap to a clogged catalytic converter. An illuminated check engine light means that you should have your vehicle checked as soon as possible; a flashing check engine Iight means that the driver should park and shut off the car immediately before serious engine or emissions system damage occurs.

Illinois Auto Emissions Test

The emissions test checks whether the emissions control system on your car is working correctly. Motor vehicle manufacturers are required to meet increasingly stringent pollution standards, but vehicles that are not properly maintained or that have malfunctioning emissions control systems often exceed these standards. Vehicle emissions tests identify such cars, and repairs are then required to reduce the emissions which cause pollution. These repairs help clean the air while improving the vehicle's performance and fuel economy.

We offer comprehensive auto body repair services, from repairing minor dents and dings to restoring your entire vehicle to pre-accident condition. Whether you've had an accident, been through a storm, or just want to freshen up your vehicle's appearance, we are here to help get you back on the road. We use the latest in collision repair technology to return your car to its original condition. Our master technicians go through our innovative advanced training program to provide you and your vehicle with the best quality service.

"I love this place been taking my cars here for years. I do agree that when you do you need to call and check on the car because they often forget to call you. But they are honest, hard working, and driven. However, I brought him a brand new 2011 civic and he immediately bought the necessary items to talk to my car. I love this place and will come here for many years to come. Dwayne and crew are truly miracle workers..."

Yelp Review
"I thought I'd write a review about five terrific guys who've handled my auto maintenance needs since the 1980s. I'm speaking of Dwayne Shilling and his son, Kevin, and Rich, Mark, Jim and the rest of the staff at Du Page Auto Werks. We have a particularly challenging 2001 Honda Civic that's been used the past five years by my son the rock and roll drummer. Toting drums and amps all over the Chicago area. Too many large guys stuffed inside for trips to gigs in Wisconsin, etc. I think Dwayne would agree the Civic has been driven hard and put away wet. Yes indeed. Forget about our other two cars-..."

Yelp Review
"Dupage Autowerks is a GREAT company! I bought a 2006 VW Golf TDI(Diesel) that had 325,000 miles on it from Dwayne 4 years ago and their service has always been honest and reasonably priced. On the 06 Golf Dupage Autowerks freshened up the motor rings, and bearings and went through everything that needed attention before they sold it to me. I recommmended my parents to buy a car from Dupage Autowerks as well! I have since moved out of state and Dwayne is always available to answer the phone if I have any questions about diagnosing any problems I may have on the car I bought as well as other car..."
