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!

Excellent experience. The waiting area is clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My car was completed in a timely manor. And, the communication was great. I will definitely use them again.
Silver Lake Auto is close to my work and I knew my boss had used them often. I had air continuously leaking from a tire and suspected I had a nail or puncture. They were able to get me in the same day and make the repair. I got a free car wash and vacuum out or the small and affordable fix. All the men were nice, it was taken care of very quickly, and I was impressed with the overall thoroughness they provided, including photos and updates on other parts of the car so I have the records. I ex... Read More
Reliable and honest. These guys are your old school auto shop, right to the point and honest about everything, with great estimates. Shout out to Seth Kline for helping graciously with setting an appointment around a busy holiday, and with getting work done around a busy schedule. 10/10
In-N-Out no problems only thing was kind of weird. Was a bird flying in the store other than that good service. Hello to me when I came in and have a great day when I left out.
As always, everyone there did a great job taking care of my vehicle. Got a new set of Blizzak's for the car my wife drives in the winter. Great program for storing our summer tires too!
Both mine and my husband’s car were in need of repair and we had a great experience with Silver Lake! Seth was our advisor and was very honest about the whole process and kept us informed. He even went out of his way to pick us up in order for us not to make multiple trips to pick up our cars. We were very happy with how quick they got us in and our cars fixed. Thank you so much!
Ben, the sales rep, was super friendly every time we spoke. The car was ready when they said it would be and they remained open during a snow storm to take care of their customers (including me). Would definitely return when I need tire service!
I had a great experience at Silver Lake. The employees were very responsive and quick to help. I will be returning for any further car needs! They were able to complete the repair quickly which was greatly appreciated!
Wow, am I glad I discovered Silver Lake Auto in Brookfield. I was in dire need of replacement tires on my 2019 Audi Q7. I called multiple tire centers for quotes and availability and all the other tire centers were out 1 - 3 weeks to get an appointment. After looking at all the 5 star reviews on the internet, I hopped onto the Silver Lakes web site on Monday morning to get a quote on Michelin Cross Climate 2 tires. I called and Ben immediately answered the phone. He confirmed my quote, sa... Read More
We have had A LOT of work done this past year by Silver Lake Auto. They’ve always been honest and diligent with making sure our older family van is in safe driving order. Ben laid out the things that were of greater importance allowing us to plan and prioritize so that we didn’t have one giant financial hit. Recently, they went above and beyond in making sure the strange issue we were having was fully resolved before giving us our keys back. We would definitely recommend SLA and will cont... Read More
