Rocco did a great job fixings 2 actuators within an hour. He showed up on time and finished everything within time. He even went ahead n checked for leaking which was recommended by dealer to replace the power steering rack that would have cost us over $1000...He thoroughly explained of the problem. Their pricing is very reasonable and of course the convenient of your time... They come to you and fix the problem. Awesome service. Now on, I would definitely skipped the auto shop and hire Rocco. Thanks again Rocco..

Eugenio is professional in his work, expertise and character. He double checked the initial diagnosis, had all the right tools and was neat and tidy in his work. He is knowledgeable about many vehicles (per our discussions on my other cars). He did not apply any pressure for additional work; as a matter of fact, the inspection report is a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend Eugenio, and will request him on any further work my cars may require.

All about Car 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.
