Jose
12 years of experience
Jose was able to determine that my Blazer's issue WAS related to my engine [as my original mechanic suspected]. That means that the initial mechanic, whom I scheduled through "Your Mechanic," misdiagnosed. He insisted it was the A/C compressor, leaving me hopeful [and paying for a second inspection for work that won't be economical for me to complete]. Jose examined my Blazer like a medical clinician would examine a person. He checked various areas under the hood, using a tool to listen & feel with, while the engine was running. He also had me do the same, so I could understand how he was able to quickly rule out where the problem WASN'T coming from. He determined it was coming from the back of the engine [what I was afraid of, from the start]. So, basically, the first inspection was a bust....which didn't leave me with much confidence in my pre-purchase inspection of the Subaru, done by the same mechanic. It's a shame, because I found him likable and he seemed honest. But I don't feel encouraged to use him again. Additionally, in discussing my friend's Subaru, that I am currently driving, I learned, from Jose, that the timing belt should be given a greater priority status than either of us were giving it. I will have to check with my friend, to be certain; but I will likely want to schedule maintenance with Jose soon. I work nights, but I could schedule in the morning....better yet, on a Thursday or Friday. But, again, I will wait have to wait for approval from the car's true owner [even though I was intending to pay for it, myself].

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.
