Engine Maintenance and Service
An engine is more than a complex piece of machinery. It is composed of many different systems and moving parts working in unity to move your vehicle. Advancements in technology have improved the engine, yet also made it rely heavily on an OBD computer system. Because of this, diagnosing engine problems has become easier yet harder to work on. The positives of this are an increase in fuel efficiency and reduced the time between routine maintenance service intervals. The most important routine service is an oil change. This is by far the most important service to keep up with for your engine.

Common Warning of Engine Repair
Not all engine problems have a warning sign. However, there are some things to look out for to try to avoid engine repair or service. Hearing clunking or knocking from your engine could mean the bearings are wearing or worn out or it can indicate low fluid levels. More generalized problems that can occur are a decrease in fuel efficiency, decreased power, has a rough, getting up to speed, or idle having trouble warming up are all indicators of requiring engine service. An illuminated check engine light is another more obvious warning signal. Excessive exhaust smoke is one more and can mean a few different things depending on the color.

Hear from our Customers
Mike, who checked me in and explained all the repair needs, was very professional and helpful. I received a through computer based update of the status of my car. The work was done completely and quickly. My only complaint was that the driver's seat was left dirty. When I brought it back for the torque check, the technician cleaned the seat. Very pleased - I will return!
Excellent service. I’m so glad I stopped by here after finding it from AAA approved centers. I am settling down in a new area and wanted to find a good auto shop i can trust near my place. This place is beyond 5 stars. I am going back here for my next auto service.
Excellent customer service. Matt kept me informed and went out of his way to get my truck back as soon as possible. I will continue to go back for vehicle service and would recommend Silver Lake to others.
Service writer, Mike, was very considerate when upselling on things for a 10 year old high mileage car. He just sold me what I needed to keep it on the road for another year. Courtesy car provided for multiple overnights. Pictures of everything that needed fixing with explanations.
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.
