The transmission system in your vehicle is made up of a complex blend of components designed to function at a precise time. When you change gears, the transmission should smoothly, quickly, and precisely shift to the gear of your choice. When that fails to happen, or it doesn’t transition as smoothly as it used to, that’s where Silver Lakes Auto & Tire Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin can help! Our professional automotive team has the services and tools to make sure your vehicle is operating at its best. Whether it’s our ASE Certified technicians performing repairs or our office staff answering questions, our team will provide your transmission with the solutions it needs.
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!

Excellent experience. The waiting area is clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My car was completed in a timely manor. And, the communication was great. I will definitely use them again.
Silver Lake Auto is close to my work and I knew my boss had used them often. I had air continuously leaking from a tire and suspected I had a nail or puncture. They were able to get me in the same day and make the repair. I got a free car wash and vacuum out or the small and affordable fix. All the men were nice, it was taken care of very quickly, and I was impressed with the overall thoroughness they provided, including photos and updates on other parts of the car so I have the records. I ex... Read More
Reliable and honest. These guys are your old school auto shop, right to the point and honest about everything, with great estimates. Shout out to Seth Kline for helping graciously with setting an appointment around a busy holiday, and with getting work done around a busy schedule. 10/10
In-N-Out no problems only thing was kind of weird. Was a bird flying in the store other than that good service. Hello to me when I came in and have a great day when I left out.
As always, everyone there did a great job taking care of my vehicle. Got a new set of Blizzak's for the car my wife drives in the winter. Great program for storing our summer tires too!
Both mine and my husband’s car were in need of repair and we had a great experience with Silver Lake! Seth was our advisor and was very honest about the whole process and kept us informed. He even went out of his way to pick us up in order for us not to make multiple trips to pick up our cars. We were very happy with how quick they got us in and our cars fixed. Thank you so much!
Ben, the sales rep, was super friendly every time we spoke. The car was ready when they said it would be and they remained open during a snow storm to take care of their customers (including me). Would definitely return when I need tire service!
I had a great experience at Silver Lake. The employees were very responsive and quick to help. I will be returning for any further car needs! They were able to complete the repair quickly which was greatly appreciated!
Wow, am I glad I discovered Silver Lake Auto in Brookfield. I was in dire need of replacement tires on my 2019 Audi Q7. I called multiple tire centers for quotes and availability and all the other tire centers were out 1 - 3 weeks to get an appointment. After looking at all the 5 star reviews on the internet, I hopped onto the Silver Lakes web site on Monday morning to get a quote on Michelin Cross Climate 2 tires. I called and Ben immediately answered the phone. He confirmed my quote, sa... Read More
We have had A LOT of work done this past year by Silver Lake Auto. They’ve always been honest and diligent with making sure our older family van is in safe driving order. Ben laid out the things that were of greater importance allowing us to plan and prioritize so that we didn’t have one giant financial hit. Recently, they went above and beyond in making sure the strange issue we were having was fully resolved before giving us our keys back. We would definitely recommend SLA and will cont... Read More
