Engine Diagnostics & Repair Service Available!
When it comes to the performance of your vehicle and the quality of your drive, nothing plays a bigger role than the engine. It’s the reason why you’re able to move your vehicle from destination to destination. Today’s technology has allowed the manufacturers to push the envelope when it comes to engine design. From a flat-six to the V, there are a variety of designs that drivers can choose from. But it’s because of these new, elaborate designs that consistent auto care has become more important than ever, and that’s where Silver Lakes Auto & Tire can help. Our ASE Certified technicians use state-of-the-art tools and service techniques to ensure your vehicle receives the high-quality auto care it needs. Whether it needs an oil change or a full rebuild, our team can handle any problem your engine may experience!
Proper Engine Maintenance
The engine is the heart of your vehicle, and it needs proper maintenance to consistently perform at its best. Although we recommend leaving any major services to our automotive professionals, there are still some simple tasks you can do. Wondering what some of these tasks are? Don’t worry, as the Silver Lakes team is here to help. Here are two things we recommend to ensure your engine is always operating at the level you expect it to!
Check the Oil
When it comes to engine maintenance, this is one of the simplest tasks you can do. To inspect your motor oil, simply utilize the dipstick found next to the engine. After cleaning it of any old oil stains, insert it into the engine and pull it out. Inspect the oil on the dipstick for quality and check the level. Fresh and healthy oil should have a clear, amber color. If it takes on a darker, grainy appearance, that indicates the oil is worn out and it must be changed.
The level of the oil should be “Full” or between that and “Low” (indicator may vary based on what vehicle you have). If it’s at or below “Low,” you’ll need to add more oil. Please make sure you visit our shop for this, as we’ll know the proper amount of oil to add as well as the type of oil your vehicle requires.
Consistent Maintenance Schedule
For any other engine maintenance task, it’s important that you have it done regularly by our ASE Certified technicians! By following a consistent maintenance schedule, we’ll be able to monitor the condition of your engine and know when it needs auto care. During each service, we’ll typically replace timing belts, change the air filters, provide new motor oil, and more to ensure your engine is utilizing brand new parts and performing at its best!

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. I called Silver lake back and that assured me that could fix it even though they saw that my originally issue was still the problem!! Silver lake fixed my car within 24hrs. 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
