It was a pleasure meeting Jerel when we first requested his services. He, even at that time did a great job. Not only were his work skills excellent but he had a very pleasant and helpful disposition. Our wonderful experience with him the first time around prompted us to request his services again for our 2nd car. We hope to continue using his services and would highly recommend him!

Manuel was great. He has an appointment earlier in the day open up so he called to see if that would work for me -- which was greatly appreciated! He was very quick and incredibly professional.

Chris checked everything out and showed up early which was great! He texted me and I called them once he got done looking over the car. He explained everything to me and let me know that was one of the best conditions he seen a car of that year and model. After talking with Chrys I definitely have much more confidence in purchasing the car. I will definitely let my friends and family know about their service.

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.
