Our auto repair shop is conveniently located in Ashland, Virginia. Our quality ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified mechanics at AC Tire, Inc. employ today’s latest automotive technology and are equipped to handle all major and minor auto repair services on foreign and domestic vehicles. Below are some of the many auto repair services that we offer:
Oil & Oil Filter Service
Experts recommend changing the oil and oil filter in your vehicle every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever is first. It’s an essential way to maximize engine protection.
Cooling System Service
Our team will flush the cooling system, conduct a pressure test, check hoses and cap and check connections.
Air Conditioning Service
One of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your car’s air conditioner, all A/C lines, evaporator and compressor for leaks and wear.
We will remove old worn-out gear oil from the front and rear differential and transfer case.
Fuel/Air Induction Cleanup
Using specialized equipment, our technicians will quickly and effectively clean intake manifolds, ports, intake valves and combustion chambers and install injector cleaning additives in tanks. This service will restore lost power and performance and will reduce harmful exhaust emissions.
Power Steering Flush
Our technicians use a powerful cleaner to dissolve gum and varnish in your car’s power steering unit. Next, we will flush old, worn-out contaminated fluid and install fresh new fluid fortified with a special antioxidant and anti-wear ingredients to prevent expensive mechanical failure.
Rim Repair/ Headlight Restoration
Rim Repair Rough road conditions can do more than mess with your alignment or your tires; they can damage your tire's rim. Rims can cost as much as $500 to replace. Through much practice, Johnny has developed a hands-on procedure to correct the abuse done to your wheel. Bring your rim by A.C Tire to talk to Johnny and see what he can do for you and your rim.
(Disclaimer: After-market rims, also known as "custom rims," are made of an inferior metal. The success rate of repair of these rims is much lower. )
Headlight Restoration Cloudy and/or scratched headlights are not only ugly, they are a driving hazard. While there are many DIY products and remedies available, most of these are messy and time consuming and many of them actually do more harm than good. The service crew at A.C. Tire have been trained to use quality products to clean and restore your headlights to improve your visibility, both to see and be seen.
Hand Car Washing/ Interior Detailing
A.C. Tire began as a full-service car wash. It continues this tradition by offering a range of services from a self-service car wash (that is maintained on-site) to light detailing. We can wash and wax your vehicle, vacuum the interior, clean the interior windows and condition the vinyl and tires to make your vehicle look sharp. We also offer gift certificates in any amount for these services.
(Prices for these services vary by vehicle make/ model and vehicle condition. Weather conditions will affect the availability of these services. Appointments are recommended.)
