Lakemoor Transmissions & Auto Repair and was founded by Chris Dubach and his wife Michele.  Originally from Arlington Heights IL, they moved to the small town of Wauconda over 20 years ago with the hopes of opening their own “Mom and Pop shop.”

They wanted to establish an auto repair shop with a hometown feeling.

That dream became a reality when they opened their doors and started Lakemoor Transmissions & Auto Repair in March of 2008. 


Chris is a Master Mechanic with over 30 years of experience, expertise and passion for rebuilding foreign, domestic and diesel transmissions. 
The intricacy of rebuilding transmissions is a specialty within the automotive industry, which many mechanics do not posses.

Chris Dubach’s name is widely known and highly regarded within the field throughout Cook, Lake and McHenry County.  Always maintaining the integrity of quality and only using OEM replacement parts when rebuilding your transmission on the bench, Chris is your #1 transguy! 

While continuing his vast knowledge of transmissions by attending the latest advanced transmission seminars,  Chris does way more than just transmissions.

He continues to keep updated on current and ever changing new technology with ATSG Classes. You can trust your engine replacement, new clutch or break repair, will be done correctly.   

In 2017, son Luke Dubach joined the family business where he continues to bring his dedication and knowledge of general automotive & diesel repair. He is a hardworking, favorite among all the customers. Always with a smile on his face offering customer pick up & delivery whenever needed.
