From the moment the appointment was scheduled, I received phenomenal service! YourMechanic maintained consistent effective communication with me about my appointment and worked around all my issues, to include car being parked in parking garage, work schedule, not having consistent access to my cell phone due to security of building, etc. GREAT SERVICE! Eugenio arrived in a timely manner and utilized my requested means of communication (office phone). He met me in the middle (worked on my car in a street parking spot). He effectively diagnosed the issues and fixed the problems in a timely manner (total time to completion = 1 hour). I couldn't be happier with the way things went and I spent less than $100 on the amazing service. WILL DEFINITELY be using YourMechanic again in the future!

On time, polite, and personable, Jason was quick and efficient too! This was my first mobile oil change and I may never go to a shop for this service again! So easy! On top of that he did the ## point inspection and reported that everything looked good, I've had so many mechanics push extras/add ons on me before. It was refreshing to not be taken for a ride. I'll be calling again in 5,000 miles!

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.
