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!

My car was down for over two weeks and I called silver lake originally but decided to take my car somewhere else unfortunately on my part regarding my alternator after spending over $700 my truck was still not fixed nor running.

This is the most professional, friendly and clean automotive place I have ever seen and appreci... Read More
I needed my vehicle repaired within 2 days for a road trip. Silver Lake got it in, inspected and repaired in about 1 day. Fixed all of my issues and after 1,200 miles its running great!
I highly recommend this business and the manager Josh was very professional and Nice. They Kept me up to date on what problems they found and provided me with a detailed report with pictures showing the problem areas. They also have loaner cars at no charge which definitely helps lower the stress level when it comes to needing to get to work or around town.
Going to a mechanic is always scary when something is wrong with your vehicle and you have minimal knowledge about them. Silver Lake Auto was very courteous and thorough, complete with pictures. They laid out what needed to be done immediately and what can wait in "non-mechanic" terms. They also let us use a courtesy vehicle for a day so I didn't have the hassle of having to shuttle during business hours as well as have transportation to work the next day. They made that process easy and ... Read More

I originally called Silver Lake Auto & Tire when I tried to start my car one day after work and something just wasn’t right. It was idling really high and frankly, I was afraid to drive it. So, like any other person who may know nothing about cars, I googled the nearest place with the best reputation and, their name came up. And I’m so glad it did. I had them tow my car to their shop that evening and waited nervously the next day to hear back. The next morning, I was messaged all the ... Read More
I have a high mileage 14 year old luxury SUV. The body is in great shape, interior is flawless. The check engine light came on. I feared the worst. Although it was not inexpensive, they were very honest and professional. Gave me the option to have the repairs or not. No high pressure and they were spot on with their diagnosis and cost was exactly what tjey quoted. It was nice to have the courtesy car too. Great customer service. I will definitely return if I have service needs in the... Read More
