Full-Service Engine Diagnostics & Repair
If you were to compare your vehicle to your body, the engine would represent your heart. For good reason too, as it’s responsible for the main purpose of your vehicle -- getting you from point A to point B. Without a properly functioning engine, driving becomes a difficult and frustrating experience. Make sure that doesn’t happen to you by visiting Silver Lakes Auto & Tire Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin! Our ASE Certified technicians have all the resources and equipment available to perform every repair your engine might need, whether it’s an oil change or a full replacement!
Is Something Wrong With Your Engine?
For the untrained eye, understanding the condition of your engine can be tricky. The good thing about your engine is that unlike other components, it will let you know when it isn’t properly functioning, but it’s up to you to know the signs. Here are a couple of signs you can pay attention to.
If you start hearing a strong, banging noise coming from your engine, that’s a clear sign something is wrong. When this occurs, please make sure you stop driving your vehicle and have it serviced immediately. Although most engines experiencing this will already need some sort of repair, continuing to drive and ignoring those repairs could cause significant damage to your engine. You may even need a complete engine rebuild!
When properly functioning, your vehicle should release colorless fumes. If you notice a colored smoke coming from your vehicle, something may be going on with your engine. There are three colors you need to pay attention to -- white, black, and blue. White smoke means coolant and water has leaked into the combustion chamber and is mixing with the fuel. If you check the oil with a dipstick and it is brown and gooey, that’s another sign of a combustion chamber leak. Black smoke simply means your engine is “running rich,” which means that the fuel to air ratio is unbalanced and there isn’t enough air present Blue smoke means engine oil has leaked into the fuel and is being mixed with it.
Although all of these situations should be quickly serviced, please visit us immediately if you notice white or blue smoke coming from your vehicle! The circumstances leading to that smoke can cause serious damage to your vehicle if not handled promptly!

Honestly, best automotive service I've ever received! Josh was kind, understanding of my situation, and helped me prioritize the repairs to a car that needs a little love based on safety and logevity. He also was able to provide me with a loaner vehicle which made my day much easier to manage. I dropped off in the morning, we talked before noon, car was ready before 4, and it feels great! And they took it to the carwash for me!! Wow! What more could you ask for! Thanks for the super positive ... Read More
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
VERY friendly service, honest, they kept me updated through the whole process. I'm taking my car there from now on. Thank you to the friend who recommended them.
Awesome work and communication, especially with an autistic young lady who is new to auto repair! Thanks and keep keeping your on!
Amazing! Called to see about an appointment. Phone was immediately answered by a pleasant voice and cheery greeting. I explained what I needed and was put on a VERY short hold. Alycia (sp?) came back on the line and said to drop it off whenever I could. They would have a loaner for me to use. I arrived to a clean shop and was now greeted by a smiling face and same cheery voice as before. In less than 10 minutes, I was on my way back to work in a very clean loaner. I received a call a few hour... Read More
Just had my Audi serviced at Silver Lake and wanted to share my experience. Kezra took my appointment for an oil leak I had and was able to schedule me in for repairs and repair my car in less than a week! Her customer service, attention to detail and responsiveness is next level. Kudos to Kezra and the team down at Silver Lake! I will be coming back for any future services needed on my vehicles.
It’s been a few years, thankfully, since we had to do any major work to either of our vehicles. That said- I thought the brake lines work we needed was a bit expensive, However, we needed the vehicle towed there at the end of on day, and they fit us in for the inspection the next morning. A courtesy call that afternoon for the work I needed, plus a full recommendation list of a few items I should address soon for proper upkeep and maintenance; all complete with pictures on a website format...
