Whether you drive an automatic or manual, the transmission system plays an important role in the overall performance of your vehicle. Responsible for changing gears and controlling the RPMs of your vehicle, it’s the reason why you’re able to put your car in “Park” and “Drive.” It does this by utilizing a system of complex parts and precise timing, and it should come as no surprise that it needs consistent maintenance to perform at its best. That’s where we can help.
At Silver Lakes Auto & Tire in North Lake, Wisconsin, our ASE Certified technicians utilize the latest tools and service techniques to perform every service your transmission may need. You need the best automotive professionals working on your vehicle. When you visit our shop, know that your vehicle’s transmission system is in good hands.
How to Take Better Care
Your vehicle’s transmission is a complex system that relies on a variety of components and precise timing in order to properly function. It should come as no surprise that to maintain that level of performance, you must properly maintain the transmission. Although we recommend leaving all services to our ASE Certified technicians, there are some things you can do to monitor and maintain the system’s condition. Here are two things our automotive team suggests so you can get the most out of your vehicle’s transmission!
Check the Fluid
The transmission fluid helps lubricate the parts found within your transmission and keeps the system clean. Without fresh, clean fluid, your transmission cannot perform at its best. To inspect it, use the dipstick found next to the system. Once you’ve cleaned the dipstick, insert it back into the system and take it out. You want to take note of the level and quality of the fluid. Unlike motor oil, the fluid is never consumed or burned up. If you notice the fluid level is low, that is a certain sign of a leak and you’ll need to visit our shop as soon as possible. As for the quality of the fluid, it should have a bright red appearance and sweet smell to it. If it starts to look brown and smell burnt, that means the fluid needs to be changed or flushed!
Build Better Habits
How you drive can either help or hurt your transmission system. Bad habits can speed up the degradation of your transmission and have you visiting our shop a lot sooner than you’d like or expect. When driving, think about implementing these two habits into your driving style -- wait till the car is at a full stop to change gears and warm up your car before a drive. Although it may be difficult to adapt at first, these habits will help you save money and maintain your vehicle’s high level of performance!

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
