David arrived early and was ready to go!! I was skeptical about this service, but figured I'd give it a shot. Historically, mechanics have a bad rep of "ripping off" women customers.I have quite a few mechanics in my family, so I know a bit more about cars than your average woman. I was fairly certain I had an issue with my fuel system, maybe a fuel pump or fuel filter. David told me he would check it out and let me know what he found. About 20 minutes after he arrived, I brought him a bottle of water (1:00 PM and HOOOOT!! Poor guy!!) My car was running!!! I was shocked to say the least. David said, my hose that comes off of the air cleaner was not attached properly, so it was causing the mass air flow sensor to freak out. He asked if I'd had anyone replace my air filter recently. Well, it just so happens that I had just had a transmission flush, oil change, tire rotation and system check done by a shop in Point Loma a few weeks prior for a trip my husband and I had taken to San Jose and San Francisco. Apparently when they checked my air filter, they didn't screw the clamps back together on the hose and it worked it's way off over the last few weeks of driving. I couldn't believe it!! I was so grateful to David for fixing the issue so quickly!! David took my car for a drive and came back with the all clear that it was good to go. I signed his phone app and we parted ways. He was very friendly and I really liked that he spoke sweetly of his wife. We discussed that he and my husband both have old Toyota trucks etc. He was great!! Then I got to thinking about it.......he could have REALLY took advantage of this minor issue I had and made some money off of me. He could have easily diagnosed it as what I expressed that I thought it was (fuel pump etc). BUT, he didn't. I have found an ETHICAL mechanic with INTEGRITY!!!??? WOW!!! Thank you David, you will be HIGHLY recommended by me to EVERYONE that I know!!!

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.
