Two things I must express. When I'm required to entered my credit card information I'm very skeptical. My skepticism subsided when I received the call from Mr. Cobb, correction, a text message. If any of you all has being the victim of fraudulent or identity thief one's skepticism are always conscionable and conspicuous. Secondly, I must commend you all for refining and channeling this service into a socially acceptable form, especially for all the single females and mothers of our societies. Personally, I'm unhappy, I didn't received the result in which I was seeking. The exceptional is I'm please with the outcome of Richard's service. He patiently took the time and effort to diagnose and assimilate the problem and made the proper assessment for repairs. I give thanks to the establishment and to Richard, this is a vey important service you all are rendering, convenient and competitive. Saving an individual as myself both time and money. MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU ALL PEACE AND BE KIND TO ALL OF YOU ALL.

I was admittedly skeptical - surely the sequel can't be as good as the first one! - but Jeffrey was a joy to have working on my car! He initially inspected my car to correctly determine the problem, and when the quote turned out to be not only reasonable but extremely competitive I didn't waste any time having him come back and replace the starter in my car. With the mechanic being such a nice guy, and the price beating the local, tradition auto repair shop, having him come to me simply sealed the deal! This respectful, knowledgable fellow is now my mechanic, and he should be Your Mechanic, too!

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.
