Tom is officially my new favorite mechanic. He came to do an oil change and tire rotation on my mother's car on a Saturday morning. He arrived at 11:00 on the dot ready to work. Very friendly guy, and we learned that he was a mechanic at Audi for about a decade. I love that he didn't talk down to my mother or me for being women, explained any issues we had and I could tell he really knew what he was doing. What a big difference from the last mechanic I had! Since the last mechanic that came left my car in a bit of a mess, I asked if Tom could take a quick look at mine as well once he was done. Being off the clock by then, he happily agreed to take a look. What an honest, great guy. On a Saturday, too! One quick look and he could tell the last mechanic didn't put my filter on right and that's why oil leaked everywhere..this is why it's important to look through reviews before booking your mechanic. I'll never use anyone but Tom! He's efficient, friendly, genuine and very good at what he does.

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.
