Chris was amazing. He was very professional. I'd gone to a previous mechanic, and had lots of trouble with them. They couldn't even be bothered to tighten the bolts after they'd finished with my vehicle. Chris was very helpful getting my car roadworthy again. He explained all the little details to me and gave very good service.

I had my car door fixed by Adam. The door worked One day! Door was working on Thursday and I had the same problem on Friday! Although this was annoying I contacted the customer service on line to get rhis fixed correctly. I booked another appointment with adam on that Friday. He came out and fixed my door. We tested the door 25 times before he left just to make sure I didn' t have further problems. Overall I'm very happy with Adam and will continue to use him as My Mechanic for further jobs. Great job Adam!

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.
