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!

They were able to put a patch on my tire instead of replacing it, which saved me a lot of money. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable, which I appreciate a lot. And they gave me some delicious chocolate chip cookies when I picked up my car! 10/10
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
This was the first time using this business and I was impressed. They gave me a detailed lay out with pictures as to what needed to be fixed, ranked from high priority to low priority. They let me decided what I wanted to be done. No pushy salesman. I would highly recommend.
I took our Subaru in for new tires and brakes. Scheduling was simple. I received a call from Evan the morning of the appointment, verifying the type of tires I wanted, before I even dropped the car off. Their online inspection report was great, as I could look over their findings, and recommended maintenance items before speaking with the shop. I received a few calls throughout the day with status updates and was able to pick the car up the same day. Bonus - their military discount saved me s... Read More
I had tires shipped to Silver Lake from Tire Rack for mounting, balancing and installation on a 2005 Chevy Express AWD. The appointment was made promptly, the work was performed without any issues and they did not attempt to up-sell additional services. That is a big win for me! They did exactly what I asked for with no hassle. Brilliant! I will use their services in the future.
I've always had a great experience taking my vehicles here. They are honest, do great work and very professional. I also enjoy that they have courtesy cars. The nearby dealerships make you rent from their car rental business.
My car was towed to this AAA approved center. I experienced a friendly, competent, courteous, and professional staff from the lady at the desk to the technicians and manager. The diagnosis and subsequent service were right on. They also solved a nonworking radio, which my car dealership said would cost me a significant amount to fix. Silver Lake quickly diagnosed the problem and solved the issue at no additional cost.. I am enjoying my radio and the extra money I saved by their excellent ... Read More
I called several other places that gave me very extended lead times to fix a nail in my tire. When I called Silver Lake they got me in first thing the next morning. Their communication is excellent and the repair was done on time. Customer service was excellent and I will happily recommend them and use them again.
Can't say enough great things about Silver Lake Auto! Best experience I've had at an auto shop. The manager, Matt and the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and the service was timely, efficient and thorough. I was at my wits end with my car, taking it from place to place trying to solve an ongoing issue that no one seemed to be able to diagnose. They were able to get me in and provide me with a detailed diagnostic report on my car, which included things that needed immediate atten... Read More
Front brakes, class IV hitch, and some other repairs/items. They were awesome, super professional. Clean. On time. Oh yeah, and everything works. Chris was awesome to work with. The whole team has been. They help each other and have each other's back when someone is busy.
