Richard

He did, as far as I can tell, a great job. He fixed it quicker and seemingly more 'correctly' than previous similar problems. The clutch had a better 'feel' after he adjusted it. He thoroughly test drove it and it was fine. An hour after he left, I drove it and it started out fine but during my first trip, my clutch started making a "thud" sound as I released it. I was going to Mississippi the next day and really needed it looked at. I was unable to schedule a convenient time for Richard to check it out. I assumed he would have wanted me to go through him so he could fix it without letting YM know because I assumed it was an installation issue. But he said to contact YM and let y'all schedule the check. I have customers in several businesses that I own or manage. If one of them has a problem, I jump out of my skin to fix it as quickly as possible. It appeared to me that both Richard and Your mechanic took it pretty casually. The soonest I could get anyone to take a look would have been tomorrow -- Tuesday, morning. During this whole process, I have been in constant contact with Richard and he has done an outstanding job of communicating and letting me know what is happening. I have not always liked the answer but he has been very honest and straight forward. Cindy in customer service has likewise done a good job. I like being able to talk to CS people and it's easy with YM. (as long as you live in the correct time zone. Every other company that I have ever dealt with on the left coast takes time zones into consideration and starts earlier in the day. As good luck would have it, whatever it was went away. If it mysteriously comes back, I'll let you 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.
