My car broke down on the side of the road and I didn't have time to deal with it myself. I had it towed to my house and found the your mechanic.com website and decided to give them a try. Theodore did a great job replacing the alternator on my 2006 Honda Odyssey. He clearly knows what he is doing, was professional and willing to explain what he was doing and worked beyond the time allotted for the job to see it completed. He honored the price that the website quoted me at even though it took him longer to complete it than quoted (the site misquoted how long it would take for the job). I will definitely use this service again and would happily have Theodore work on my vehicles.

I saw this young man fix a vehicle that 3 others could not do. It took 4 days but I booked him cause he is great at what he does. Besides I just got screwed over by a so call mechanic. But Xavier actions and expensive tools speaks for him...

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.
