Rocco
17 years of experience
Incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. I called for a check-engine light on our aging MLS 320. A problem it turns out only the dealership can fix. Nonetheless, Rocco was able to give me the litany of issues AND the order of priority. Now I can go to the dealership with all the knowledge I need to be in control. And when they fix the major issue, I'm calling Rocco back to fix the rest of the problems. Overall, great experience with Rocco and the service.

Awesome experience!! Chris was great!! I was extremely satisfied with his service. I would recommend him to family and friends. Besides delivering a new battery and installing it, He checked all the fluid levels, checked the tire pressure and made sure all the the malfunction lights went away. He was very professional, knowledgable and friendly.The final bill was less than I was quoted, because he gave me a $20.00 discount.I asked for his card so that I could request him if I need YourMechanic services again. Love this company!!!

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.
