Transmission System Services Available
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!

Very friendly, helpful mechanic shop. They helped me out when I was stranded in Wisconsin, (I live in Iowa). They have a very thorough, free inspection and let me know everything that was wrong with the car, but also let me know that only one of those things was absolutely necessary to get my car back on the road. Very honest. I highly recommend!
Tyler got me in and done a day ahead of schedule, and then fixed my wifes TPMS on her truck after I came back to get my tires with her truck. Exceptional service and professionalism, and a very clean shop. I'll be back for a alignment soon!
My husband and I have brought both of our vehicles to Silver Lake. We even had an emergency flat that they did overnight service for us! Excellent customer service and a company that cares!
Top notch customer service at Silver Lake Auto in Oconomowoc! They went for a test drive with me when I dropped of my truck to understand the problems I was having, diagnosed the issues properly, had great communication on how they were going to fix them and offered me a courtesy car to drive while they fixed by truck. To put a cherry on top... they cleaned my truck truck inside and out! Thank you!
Silver Lake Auto & Tire has an extremely helpful staff. Clay and his team are very helpful and are very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this team to help you keep your car running very well.
Great auto repair shop. Fair and informative. 5 stars plus!
I’ve used SLAC for various things over the years both personal and professional (I’m a GM for a local collision repair center) and the service has always been great. Just last night I needed my wife’s car towed from Oconomowoc to Watertown and even though it was after hours, Rob and Sean coordinated everything with their driver who happened to be in the area and got it done way quicker than I anticipated. When I called to pay the tow bill, Amanda was just as friendly as she always is. I... Read More

Customer service was excellent. Kept me updated throughout the day. Completed on time and as estimated. Would highly recommend Silver Lake!
Way better experience with Silver Lake auto than with the BMW dealer. They were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. High quality workmanship and parts. BMWs are expensive to maintain wherever you have them serviced.
