Friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. Took time to answer my questions and explain things to me. Also, when he took it for a test drive, he noticed that the clutch pedal needed adjustment, and just did it, even though that wasn't part of the service for this appointment. Awesome. Thanks!

My car couldn't start. After searching online and comparing the symptoms, I believed it was due to a failed alternator that slowly drained the battery. I booked the first available appointment at 1:15pm and I also left a note stating that he could come earlier if he finished his morning job earlier. On the day before the appointment, a friend drove me to AutoZone to have the car battery full charged. On the day of the appointment, I received a text at 11:25am saying he was on his way. He arrived at 11:45am. He asked me who diagnosed the alternator failure. I told him the symptoms and the information I found online. He agreed. It is great that he wanted to make sure the diagnosis was correct first. 50 minutes later, he had the alternator replaced and also gave me a quote for another service needed. Since my car battery was already fully charged, I was able to drive the car right away. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.

Overall, he did a great job and communicated on a level I understood. But he was unable to finish the shock absorbers and despite telling me a few times that it would be soon, I haven't heard from him in over a month. !

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.
