Tien

My first time using this service was on March 11th, my power window motor and regulator went out so I ordered the parts online and booked an appointment to have someone come to my job and install it the mechanic that came out was Tien, he installed the parts that I had ordered online but told me that the part was bent somewhere and wasn’t working properly so I thought to myself here we go, I just wasted my money by having him come out and he can’t install it, but to my surprise, Tien was able to use spacers or something like that so that the window would work properly, he definitely did not have to do that by me ordering the part on my own, he went over and beyond to make sure my window was able to roll up and down and I could close my door, so since I had such a good experience when I received the recommendation via email regarding other service I should have done, and the price that it would cost, and the estimate was very reasonable I booked another appointment, that appointment was yesterday march 18th and that service was also excellent, so I think I’ve found my new mechanic.

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.
