Is Your Transmission Failing?
When it comes to performing any repairs on your transmission system, it’s best that you leave it in the hands of trained automotive professionals. But just because you shouldn’t perform a repair, doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to maintain your transmission. In fact, one of the best ways to do so is to understand when it’s properly functioning and when it’s starting to fail. This knowledge helps you get ahead of small problems before they worsen and can even make your auto service visit quicker and easier! Here are two signs of transmission malfunction you should know!
Transmission fluid helps keep the transmission clean and lubricated during use. Unlike motor oil, the fluid does not get burned up or consumed. If your vehicle notifies you that the transmission fluid is low, that’s a certain sign that the fluid is leaking. You’ll also notice a leak if you see a bright red, sweet-smelling fluid underneath your vehicle. Outside of creating a mess, the low fluid level could damage your transmission and other parts of your vehicle if the leak spreads!
Your transmission should shift gears smoothly and without trouble. If you feel that your transmission changes gears without action from you or that your vehicle isn’t accelerating, those are signs of slipping. If the problem persists, it could cause additional damage to your transmission and can even be dangerous to drive with. Make sure you have one of our trained automotive professionals take a look at the problem for you!

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.

The team at Silver Lake Auto in Brookfield is highly recommended - big step up from the Toyota dealership! Professional, courteous, skilled. I will remain a customer.
First time customer and very impressed. Very professional and polite. Love their use of technology to communicate and inform. I am looking for a trustworthy place to have my cars serviced. I am impressed so far and will continue to come here. Thanks
I primarily dealt with Josh he was very personable and courteous. I needed work done and it got done in a nice and timely fashion. It was great how I received an overall assessment of my car. I am definitely going to continue business with them.
