It was a pleasure for me to be able to have Chris come out to service my chevy. I had a new serpentine drive belt put on. He was very early and went right to work. The more car repairs i have done with Chris the more i feel very comfortable with his service. You couldn't ask for a nicer person. I like how he always answers my questions about my car and how things work in the engine. I really like how i don't have to drive the car to a shop he comes to u. Thanks again Chris u rock. Erin

Clarissa was wonderful! She is very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. If I could give her 10 stars I would. I usually work on my on car so I have an idea of how much work goes into repairs. I am the type of person who laughed at other mechanics and walked away when they tried to sell me a service I didn't need or for a ridiculous price. From the start she responded very quickly to my messages answering my questions and even added a last minute service the day before she was scheduled to come to my home. I had an old car being held together by rust and prayers. I had some parts and she immediately called to remove the cost from my bill. She showed up on time, listen to what I had to say and then looked over my car. She pointed out the issues and helped me weigh the pros and cons of how to handle the situation. I would highly suggest her to anyone who wants a mechanic they can trust!

All about 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.
