If you were to compare your vehicle to your body, the engine would represent your heart.

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!

I got a nail in my tire and found myself a few miles away from this place. I called them, they got me in immediately, and fixed my tire on the spot. I was in and out within 45 minutes. Fantastic customer service and friendly staff. I will definitely be back in the future should I need anything else. A+
I had a great first experience with Silver Lake when I used them for the first time ever to replace a leaking water pump. Josh was great. Their communications (texts, emails, phone calls, detailed estimate) were outstanding and something I was not used to getting from other auto service shops. I plan to buy new tires from them next month. And I live within walking distance of them. I feel like I've found a new friend!
First time using Silver Lake Auto had emergency and lost all power. Had SUV towed to them. They were helpful and provided detailed report on repairs needed. They did an awesome job on repairs and SUV running like new. Highly recommend and working with Chris was great.
Clean shop. Great initial service. Offered to drive me home after they get a look at my car on Thursday. They also perform emissions tests for free, which is nice. Will follow up after job is done.and experience is complete. So far so good UPDATE: Silver Lake worked hard and figured our what the problem with my car was. It wasn't something a simple diagnostic could identify. Done and repaired. Car drives great! These folks get a👍.
Came here for a tire rotation and wheel alignment on my Tesla Model S and was very happy with the result. The pricing seemed reasonable (everything is getting more expensive, now that shops have to do extra calibration for driver-assistance features), the service took about an hour less time than they told me to expect, and most importantly...they didn't change my seat presets. Everyone I talked to was very friendly and very up front about what they would be doing and how much it would cost. ... Read More
This was the best experience I have ever had dealing with car issues, hands down! We have a conversion mini van that is not easily towed and one call to Silver Lake Auto in New Berlin and they came to the rescue and went above and beyond. They were very communicative and did excellent work. I will definitely come here for all future needs. Would highly recommend, plus the cookies were delicious.

Excellent Customer Service and everyone is very friendly! Amanda was our Service Advisor and she was so easy to work with and very thorough explaining things. We had a comprehensive diagnostic report done on our vehicle I was impressed with how detailed the report was which even included pictures of the areas of concern. They even gave us a free loner car while they had our vehicle! Will definitely use them for any service needs in the future and as a little added bonus....refreshments and c... Read More
Sarah is exceptional at making sure all the details are covered. The work is done perfectly. I had custom wheels mounted and TPMS sensors installed.
