Joshua

I wish I could give Joshua a better overall rating. The process and experience was exceptional and I would have recommended him to anyone. However the $700 I paid to repair the car didn't fix the problem. I understood and asked that Joshua think more and converse with others as to what it might be for further action. I only did not receive a followup call from him but he hasn't returned my calls all week. I'm in a business where we can do a project 98% complete, but the client always remembers the last 2%. The great experience I had and the overall professionalism I was receiving has been soured by the lack of follow-up.

Mark was punctual and friendly. He replaced the engine mount on my Audi A4. The only hiccup was that the mount that I purchased myself the mount was not the same as the original part (but compatible). I imagine that a mechanic with more experience with this model would have noticed this before the install so that I could exchange the part.

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.
