Tom was on time which means a lot. I know somewhat about cars and Tom told me what to expect and I told him to just get it done right, and he did just that, I mean Tom is the 'BOMB'. And the best thing is I didn't have to go looking anywhere, 'Your Mechanic' sends the mechanic to me, what an awesome concept.

Richard was very polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. He did a great job and explained everything he did. Even more impressive was what he didn't do! Previously we had been told by another garage that the car was a goner, dangerous to drive, and not worth fixing--basically, that it was time to retire it. Richard assured us that with only 135,000 miles the car still had life in it and was safe to drive until parts could be ordered. And the repairs were much less extensive and less expensive than anticipated. The whole experience was better than I expected. I will be telling everyone I know about Richard and

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 Freon 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.
