I was recommended to try YourMechanic.com by friend. On a whim, I decided to try it out, worse case is that my problem would not get fixed and I would be back at square one... NOT THE CASE! From the moment I signed up, scheduled my appointment, and confirmed with Josh(from yourmechanic.com) everything was smooth sailing. Such a pleasant, no-hassle experience. It was so speedy and easy. My Jeep Cherokee has been in and out of the shop for the last 3 months. Having to towed to the shops, was just so time consuming and irritating. My alternator is finally replaced, and now I know which service I'll be using in the future.

Peter was extremely polite and easy to work with even though there were some difficulties with not having the correct parts on hand to complete the repair. He was very patient and willing to work with us to sort out the situation and complete the job. Peter and the YourMechanic services greatly exceeded our expectations and we will certainly be using both again in the future and are highly recommending both to people we know.

Dave helped me with a previous problem with my turn signal flasher and rearview mirror, and he took care of those very easily and effectively. Another problem arose where my power locks and stereo didn't work. He came prepared to do some significant rewiring. The good news is that the solution ended up being way simpler than that, and he fixed it very quick. He's been very prompt and reliable, and I'm very happy with his service!

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.
