Trung was very professional and went above and beyond in answering all of my questions, and I had a lot of them. He was extremely patient and showed me exactly the location of his repair and even took photos to show me how it looked when it was taken apart. This truly showed he takes care in his craft and listening to customer concerns. Pre-appointment he was very responsive and even answered my questions via text on a Sunday night! Very glad he worked on my car and will definitely reach out to him again for my car care needs.

Alvin was very professional, he really took the time out to explain everything he was doing with my car so I didn't feel left out. He listened to everything I had to say and the information I had for him. He worked very efficiently and affectivily. He was able to point out the problem pretty much almost right away. My car is now running smoothly and I couldn't be more happier.

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.
