Enrique is truly a professional. Not just a true professional but a honest man. There's a verse that comes to my mind from the book of proverbs that says "a true friend is a brother who is born for times of distress". Enrique is reliable and trustworthy and is someone who brings a lot of knowledge & experience who sincerly cares especially in the times we live in. Enrique in other words is a honest man you can count on .

Josh was an excellent mechanic. He went above and beyond to make sure my car was serviced correctly and identified other areas of concern. Very professional and the You Mechanic experience was way better than any shop experience I have had. No pressure and no hassle fair prices with a quality mechanic. I will use this service again due largely to the service Josh provided. With some of the shop mechanic experiences I have had, after my services with them I usually feel like I've been taken for more than the service should have cost. This was not so with my experience with Your Mechanic.

Adam came to inspect my drivers side door that wasn't opening from the outside. He found the problem and needed to get the part ordered to fix it (Hopefully soon). In the mean time he rigged my door to open temporarily until the part comes in. That was VERY much appreciated! I found my Mechanic! I will definitely book Adam to fix this job and any future jobs in the future. I will be doing another review when this job is complete but i have no doubt that Adam will to a great job!

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.
