Patrick is a consummate professional and extremely courteous. Very thorough and diligent. He noticed a problem with one of the components he installed and personally followed through to make sure to make sure things are made right. I feel my automobile is in good hands.

Very nice guy and has a lot knowledge. This particular recommendation wasn't correct (to replace the entire headlight when only the bulb socket was broken), but he alerted me to the problem which I actually can fix myself.

Arrived early and finished early. Made honest recommendations on other areas that needed work without pushing a sell. I will be booking again to get some other things fixed!

Kevin was GREAT. A repair shop was going to charge me $430 to fix my radio and he fixed it in about 2 minutes. He figured out what was wrong with the air conditioning, cleaned my front headlights and I am a happy camper with my country music and cold air. I am never going back to repair shop again!

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.
