I appreciate the fact that William was straightforward with his recommendation: that I did not need shock absorbers, which AAA had determined I did. That was good. I found it, confounding, however, that even when William was able to find the problem, a dried bush on the spindle, he was not able to correct it because he did not have the proper tools. I would have expected the $70 for finding the problem would be applicable to resolving it. My guess is that if he had the right tools, the problem would have been solved. I am expecting that YourMechanic follow in their promise in resolving the issue. When this is solved, my rating would change.

This is my first time using this service. I priced around with the local shops, the dealer, and this site. The pricing was about $100 cheaper in average here and all my friends were curious (A.K.A. they wanted me to be the guinea pig). I'm always apprehensive talking to mechanics; I will have to say that Robert was a true professional. He also made me feel very comfortable and felt that I could trust him right away. Not many people make me feel like that. Great people skills. He was very prompt and communicated very well on appointment schedule and expectations. As for the technical mechanic aspect, it was mind blowing. I really appreciate that I could go onto this site and know that Robert is available to fix my car for anything. Yes, I will definitely use this again and yes, I will ask for Robert Mischka. I have full trust that the job will be done right, clean, efficient, and with detail. No, he didn't need to leave my engine cleaner than he found it but I appreciate it very much as a detailed person myself. lol I know everyone has some type of placebo feeling after getting something replaced or fixed but that isn't this case. I know for a fact and monitored performance, shakes, noises, and feel of the car for the duration of ownership. After Robert was done, the car feels great! Super quiet, shakes are gone, no more cold start noises, and better performance and consistency. It's magic when a mechanic touches your car and everything is nice and better than you've ever had it. I know spark plugs will also help a lot but Robert made the whole experience trusting, easy, professional, and amazing. He has skills! Thank you so much!

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 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.
