I was very skeptical about this service, being a first time customer. But, Peter put me at ease when he started explaining what he would be doing. He was extremely professional and very knowledgable. And, the price was the same as my quote. This rarely happens at auto repair shops. I am extremely satisfied with his work in the hot Arizona sun. My AC now works like new! Thanks Peter!

Patrick was wonderful. He sent me a text asking if he could come by earlier than our initial appointment time which worked out well for me. He changed the spark plugs and ignition coil and now my car runs like new. The garage wanted to charge me anywhere from $500-700 for this service. My total amount was less than half of that. Patrick was very professional. I'm telling everyone I know about this service and to NEVER take their car to a garage again.

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.
