Terrance originally came to my house for a tune up and discovered other issues that I agreed needed fixed. I made another appointment for two days later. Terrance was right on time and worked pretty quickly and efficiently. I am pleased with his work as well as the notes he took for future repairs. He is very helpful and I would book him again.

Mr. Gustavo G. is one of the best mechanic I have ever met. First of all he was very courteous to call me when he was going to be later due the appointment before mine. Secondly he is very knowledge to check my car and told me what was the problem. Then he replaced booster very quick long before my expectation without any messy. I had to go work after inspection, I left him working at my house. What surprises me was that when I got home from work I found my car was parked under the shadow of the tree, which shows he is very considerable person besides a good mechanic. The brake of car now feels great and safe. Definitely I will recommend him to others and use his service again.

Luke was very upfront about what was needed and the process. I liked being able to see what he was working on while he was doing it. It made for a more personal auto experience, which I enjoy because I've had bad experiences in the past with dishonest mechanics.

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.
