Steven's services was exceptional, he was on time, very personable, experienced and diagnosed the issue with my car quickly. I had my car in to a local Fletches service shop because of a heavy vibration sound and the shop produced a list of problems with my vehicle, the most important issue to them and the cause of the problem "was, my motor mounts were bad". After the quoted a price to me of $900, I decided to not have the service, I researched doing this myself, but it seemed complicated. I found YourMechanic by searching the web got a quote and was "SUPRISED" that the quote was $500 less. I booked the appt. and when Steven came out he quickly diagnosed that "NONE" of my mounts were bad, and that the problem was a misfire and I needed a tune up. Funny thing is the local Fletchers didn't even mention a tune-up in the list of things I needed. The car still needs some other work, but Steven diagnosed and fixed the problem quickly, and saved me money. I am sold and very impressed with YourMechanic, I will be using you and Steven again.

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.
