Richard

The part had not yet arrived on the day of service and Richard called me first thing in the morning to let me know. He kept in touch with me and was on the lookout for the part. He arrived only 30 min after the appointment time with the part! He quickly installed my fuel pump and was on his way. I later found out there was another issue with the car, which hadn't been diagnosed before (he had not done the initial diagnosis) and he quickly came back out to take a look at it. Throughout the process Richard has been polite and understanding.

Kyle was very professional, willing to go above and beyond to complete the job. He even found a loose wire that was part of the problem. He also found that some wires had been switched up. He could have just completed the job and left, but he took the extra step. Kyle is a good worker and very respectful.

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.
