Tom was very personable and enjoyable to work with. Right when he arrived, I felt completely at ease with him. He was very professional and knowledgeable. The problem I had with the car didn't show up when he was here but he looked at all the possibilities and found the car to be in generally good shape and made some recommendations of what might have been the issue. Additionally he found my rear brakes to be in desperate need of replacement. I scheduled an appointment for him to come out at a later date to repair them and look forward to his visit! I will continue to request Tom to work on all my cars.

He arrived early. Got the whole thing done quickly. Gave me some extra information about my car as well for the future. And explained it in a way that I could understand (knowing next to nothing about cars). He was professional and friendly. Great work.

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.
