Chris A. was amazing! Dispairing over the failure of my aging Acura's radiator, I thought the cost of repairs would total the car. After a few days of asking friends for names of reliable mechanics and getting answers like "call the dealership," I tried turning to the 'net. I read the reviews for YourMechanic and decided that it was well worth a try. They gave me an estimate that was about 50 percent off the prices quoted by the dealer and other foreign car repair shops. We made an appointment on Friday, and right on time, Chris A. drove up on Saturday morning. He not only replaced my radiator and refilled the coolant right in my driveway, he did a thorough check of the cooling system and taught me a lot about the idiosyncracies of my particular model. We benefitted by being able to talk with the mechanic while he was working on my car. It was worth the price of the radiator just for what we learned about the systems. Chris was knowledgeable, patient, focussed, and a great communicator. Did I mention thorough? I have never recommended a mechanic before, but Chris is now my go-to guy. Highly recommend YourMechanic.com.

All about AC Compressor Replacement

An AC system has many components: compressor, condenser, receiver dryer, evaporator, and hoses. The compressor, the “heart” of the car’s air conditioning system works like a pump taking refrigerant, (R-12 in older cars, R-134a in 1995 and newer cars) and pressurizing it, passing it along to the evaporator. The AC compressor has several moving parts (including pistons and valves). These internal parts can fail, causing the AC compressor to stop working. It is common for the internal parts of the compressor to come apart and disperse metallic debris throughout the system. Consequently, it is a requirement to replace the orifice tube and the receiver dryer when replacing the compressor since some of the debris may have ended up there. For an AC compressor to work, it needs a clutch, bearing, and an electrical connector. The clutch is driven by a drive/serpentine belt, which engages the compressor when you switch on the AC. The clutch can burn or the bearing can fail. If the bearing or clutch have failed, it is recommended that the compressor be replaced. Sometimes replacing the entire compressor with a remanufactured one can be cheaper than replacing an individual clutch or bearings. It is also common for the seals in the AC compressor to go bad. The compressor may start leaking refrigerant and/or the AC oil. If the seals no longer hold, you will need a new compressor, as the seals cannot be replaced. A compressor may also fail if there is sludge or debris in the air conditioning system. If there is sludge or debris, the hoses, evaporator, and condenser should be flushed to get rid of the contaminants. When it is not possible to flush the parts, you may need to replace those parts.
