Car - Audi TT Sports; YourMechanic/ Jason Certeza I have taken the services of YourMechnic multiple times, and have always been very happy about it. in 2015, Yourmechanic, worked on changing my timing belt, starter replacement and serving. They also took care of my yearly servicing. In 2016, YourMechanic took care of powersteering sensor replacement and yearly servicing. Jason Certeza has worked multiple times with my car. This appointment was wrt to some squeaking noises from the power steering. He inspected the car, and quickly found the sensor to be defective. We went ahead to order the part, and Jason would fix it in the next appointment. Jason has deep mechanical knowledge of car(mine is European). He diagnoses, the problems very accurately, and explains very well. Jason also goes the extra mile, helping to buy the correct item. All in all, i would recommend him very highly, and would reach out to him for further repairs.

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.
