Check Engine Light in North Lake, WI
North Lake's Engine Light Experts -- Silver Lakes Auto & Tire Center
Complete Engine Light Diagnostics & Repair
Your vehicle is equipped with a variety of warning signals designed to inform you of your vehicle’s status. Within that list of signals is one that has left drivers stressed and frustrated since it was first introduced as the malfunction indicator light (MIL) in the late 1980s -- the check engine light. What stands out about this warning signal is its inability to inform you of what the specific problem is. It’ll only inform you of a problem and its severity. Fortunately for drivers in North Lake's, Wisconsin, Silver Lakes Auto & Tire is here to help. Our ASE Certified technicians utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair tools to properly fix and rid your vehicle of this pesky light. Whether it’s a dead battery or a bad spark plug, we handle any problem that causes this warning signal!
What You Need to Do
When the check engine light comes on, the first thing you need to look at is the light itself, as this will inform you of the problem’s severity. Is it a steady glow? Or is it blinking? If the light is steady, that means whatever is wrong isn’t a major issue, yet. If the light is blinking, that indicates that something is severely wrong with your vehicle. In this instance, it’s important that you have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible! Continuing to drive could cause additional damage.
If the light is steady, the first thing you want to check on is your gas cap. Believe it or not, a loose gas cap can actually trigger the warning signal! Make sure that you either tighten the cap or replace it (they're cheap at most auto parts stores) before your next drive. Once this adjustment is made, give your vehicle’s computer system some time to recognize it. You may need to drive a few miles before the light disappears.
If the gas cap is not the case, make sure you visit our shop as soon as you can! Our ASE Certified technicians will have an OBD II tool in hand to accurately determine the cause of the light and fix the issue! You can get your hands on an OBD II at an auto parts store, but they can be a little costly.

If I could give 90 stars to these people I would! They are the most thorough out of the entire country. I am a professional transport person and I've never seen detail work done like this in my entire life. Let alone they actually got it in when they said they would and got it out about a week earlier than they anticipated. They did a deep dive into my 2004 3500 diesel and found a gazillion problems that the dealership didn't when I bought it. They did a detailed report along with amazing pic... Read More
Silver Lake Auto did an excellent job repairing my '84 Blazer. I was concerned they wouldn't work on an older vehicle but they had no issues. They performed a list of repairs quickly!!!
The staff was VERY friendly and professional!!!. I appreciated their main concern was I didn't have to wait long. They made sure to have a courtesy car waiting for me when I showed up for my appointment. The communication and the detail description of what was going on with my vehicle made me feel that I was not being taken advantage of and when all was said and done I feel like I paid a fair price. I will be definitely coming back.
I highly recommend Silver Lake Auto! I had a road trip and took my car in to make sure everything was in great working order. I was pleasantly surprised how clean and nice the office was. I was greeted warmly by Tyler who was very professional and kind during our interactions. Their shuttle driver, Doug, was also very engaging and professional during my trip to and from the shop. I never had such a positive experience with automotive place - especially as a woman. They explained everything in... Read More
I had my vehicle towed here after my check engine light popped on suddenly. The communication was outstanding throughout the process and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They got it done quickly on pretty short notice. I was also impressed with the email of the inspection report. There are pictures and notations for each area they go over. I feel confident in taking my vehicle here and plan to for upcoming services.
I rolled into Silver Lake Auto with a punctured tire at 2:00 in the afternoon. The team was great, as they assured me they could get me back on the road before the end of the business day. They shuttled me back into work and picked me up 2 hours later with the tire patched up. I appreciated the high level of service.
I came in to have a quote on replacing brake pads for my car. They gave me a loaner car to drive home while waiting for the estimate and did a overall inspection on what needs to be replaced and serviced (not just for brake pads) for free. They upfront told me the cost will be higher compare to other places because it comes with warranty. I did not eventually get my brakes replaced here because the cost is higher than I expected but certainly appreciate the great service. I'd come back for ot... Read More
The service I received at silver Lake Auto and Tire was stellar. Tyler was very helpful upon checking me in and making sure they were able to help me in an emergency. They were able to give me a same day service and replace a tire that was damaged. The concierge service provided by Doug was amazing. He is exceptionally kind and thoughtful. He even gave me cookies when returning to the shop to pick up my car!! I was provided a complimentary diagnostic of my car which was eye-opening to see the... Read More

My experience working with Silver Lake auto was an exceptionally positive one! They were able to accommodate my schedule by picking up my car from my home and taking it to their shop.

Everything was done on the timeline they promised and they even made an extra trip to my house to pick up the whe... Read More
