Wow! From start to finish Patrick explained the process he would be doing to my car. So luck to have found a honest mechanic to work on my car. I really hate leaving feedbacks, because I think paying for the service says I'm satisfied with the service, but in this case, I had to leave Patrick one...:) I've already started recommending Your Mechanic, and Patrick to family and friends. Thanks!

Again, excellent service, and our problem was solved quickly and efficiently.
1993 MAZDA MX-6 - ROBERT PANAGGIO CAME TO OUR HOUSE LAST WEEK AND DID SOME DIAGNOSTICS ON OUR CAR AND FOUND OUR PROBLEM. UNFORTUNATELY, THE PROBLEM WENT A LITTLE FURTHER THAN ANY OF US THOUGHT, AND WE WOULD LIKE ROBERT TO COME BACK AND DISCONNECT THE PRO LOCK SYSTEM IN THE CAR, SINCE THAT IS THE PROBLEM, AND WE REALLY DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE.

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.
