This is the second time I've had Joshua come and fix a problem with my truck, and once again I'm extremely happy. He has a friendly professional manner, shows up when he says he will, completes the job in a timely fashion, and also checks to see how the previous work he did is holding up. I highly recommend Joshua and request him again for future fixes.

WOW and WOW. I wish I had known about this years ago. Jeffery showed up ahead of schedule and proceeded to evaluate the problem with my S10 as to why it would not turn over. He was extremely through during the procedure and finally found the problem. And all this was done in the pouring rain. Jeffery kept a very positive attitude and is very personable. After he found the problem he got the parts and repaired it quickly. I am so impressed with the service that was provided. With all types of people offering this kind of service the only way to rise above the rest is to provide the best possible customer care that you can and Jeffery did just that and excelled at it. I will spread the word and recommend him and his company to everyone I can. I could not be more pleased. Great service and great pricing. As a retired person, this was extremely helpful with our budget.

Enrique arrived and, this being the first time I used this company, I was expecting the usual mechanicy stuff: oh you're just a girl, what do you know, this is going to be MUCH more than you though, but wow was I wrong!! I asked to have the front break pads and rear break shoes replaced (My truck has both: rotors and drums) Enrique gets out of is car and greets me like a friend, and immediately put me at ease. He was honest with everything he told me, and let me see the issues that he found. Even though my truck does need more work done to it, Enrique wasn't pushy or overbearing in saying what I needed. he fixed what I asked him to, and said 'we can fix the rest as we go along' (NOT AN EXACT QUOTE) He was prompt, polite, knowledgeable, expedient, and didn't assume that because I'm a girl, that I'm stupid, like a lot of mechanics have done to me in the past. Over all, Enrique was a real gentleman and professional. I will definitely be asking for him specifically for my future repairs! 100% satisfied.

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.
