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!

Very friendly, helpful mechanic shop. They helped me out when I was stranded in Wisconsin, (I live in Iowa). They have a very thorough, free inspection and let me know everything that was wrong with the car, but also let me know that only one of those things was absolutely necessary to get my car back on the road. Very honest. I highly recommend!
Tyler got me in and done a day ahead of schedule, and then fixed my wifes TPMS on her truck after I came back to get my tires with her truck. Exceptional service and professionalism, and a very clean shop. I'll be back for a alignment soon!
My husband and I have brought both of our vehicles to Silver Lake. We even had an emergency flat that they did overnight service for us! Excellent customer service and a company that cares!
Top notch customer service at Silver Lake Auto in Oconomowoc! They went for a test drive with me when I dropped of my truck to understand the problems I was having, diagnosed the issues properly, had great communication on how they were going to fix them and offered me a courtesy car to drive while they fixed by truck. To put a cherry on top... they cleaned my truck truck inside and out! Thank you!
Silver Lake Auto & Tire has an extremely helpful staff. Clay and his team are very helpful and are very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this team to help you keep your car running very well.
Great auto repair shop. Fair and informative. 5 stars plus!
I’ve used SLAC for various things over the years both personal and professional (I’m a GM for a local collision repair center) and the service has always been great. Just last night I needed my wife’s car towed from Oconomowoc to Watertown and even though it was after hours, Rob and Sean coordinated everything with their driver who happened to be in the area and got it done way quicker than I anticipated. When I called to pay the tow bill, Amanda was just as friendly as she always is. I... Read More
