Joshua was very professional, prompt and knowledgable. When making my appointment I incorrectly diagnosed the issue my SUV was experiencing and even though Joshua did not have the required parts (due to my error), he found them locally and was able to complete the needed repair during the original appointment. I was so impressed with him that we booked a new appointment in a cancellation spot he had immediately on his scheduled and I had him diagnose and illusive issue on another vehicle. Now I have an appointment to have that issue remediated by Joshua later this month

Russell

Russell was a very nice mechanic that works for a not so good company. They say when you get your diagnostic it costs 70.00 that will then be waved apon booking for services with the following quote being for the actual service rendered. When infact, that fee never gets waved. So when you get your quote for how much the actual services cost to get your car fixed , add another 70.00 on top of that quote. I thought Russell was a very nice mechanic and knew exactly what was wrong and worked very hard. Unfortunately, he works for a company that's not so honest in their business practices. Thanks russell!

Awesome experience. I thought I needed a new radiator because another mechanic had told me the hoses were fine. Hollis immediately noticed a problem with a hose and only replaced the hose. Excellent experience.

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.
