Engine Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle. To have your engine maintained by experts, visit Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center.

Engine Replacement
The engine converts energy into useful mechanical motion. This amazing machine is what keeps your vehicle moving. Although generally reliable, a car engine is susceptible to damage and breakdown. When this happens, do not sit and stress over it. Take action. Take the vehicle to a mechanic for an engine replacement. Bring it to Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center. Visit us at 232 S Royal Ave for quality engine replacement services.

Transmission Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car transmissions aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the transmission's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle. To have your transmission maintained by experts, visit Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center in Front Royal, VA. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 540-636-4040 to talk to the mechanics of Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 540-636-4040 or visit Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center today.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 540-636-4040 to talk to the mechanics of Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center about your cylinder block problems.

Authorized Jasper Dealer
Give Your Vehicle a New Lease on Life with JASPER. That big oil slick in your driveway or those strange noises from under your hood don't have to mean you'll be saddled with a new car payment soon. Instead, your trusted installer at Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center can drop in a completely remanufactured JASPER gas or diesel engine, transmission or differential and get you back on the road again quickly! Call Rick's Auto Care & Tire Center at 540-636-4040 to schedule an appointment. Proudly remanufactured in the U.S.A.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Brought a new exhaust system to be installed in my '96 Toyota Tercel, and the service was exceptional. Very friendly staff and loved their office dog Lucy. :) Would definitely recommend to anyone and will plan to use them again in the future.


-Katie Bowles

I cannot say enough about Rick's Auto Care. Today I started my vacation only to have my car stop moving on the way to Skyline Caverns. Rick's set up a tow and were able to repair my car quickly. I couldn't be more happy with my experience with them, and if I lived here I'd without hesitation use them EVERYTIME I needed auto service. Thank you for getting my car fixed FAST and allowing me and my girlfriend to resume our vacation quickly.


-Vincent Corrado

We were on vacaton, and about an hour from Front Royal we heard a grinding noise. The next morning we brought our Sorento to Rick's, explained the problem, and that we were on vacation. They got us right in, let us know the problem, and ordered the parts. They made the repairs the following morning. All around excellent staff and service. Thanks so much for understanding our predicament and making us your priority.

Went to Rick's for minor car exhaust work and my yearly inspection, which turned up an issue with the brake lights. They were able to get me back on the road quickly and at a fair price. I would highly recommend Rick's for anyone looking for auto service in Front Royal.


-Neil Wood

I had a bit of work done on an old 1992 Geo Prism over several days. I think the labor was fair and they were friendly as a neighbor to me. They definitely went the extra mile. Total cost to me was about $500 for the parts/labor/inspections. I was impressed.


-Daniel Sutton

Honest people, waiting room has tv, coffee, family atmosphere.
