Great first experience with YourMechanic. Jason is pleasant and knowledgeable, he worked through the rain to mount new brake rotors on my vehicle - in the rain, no less. I would request Jason to return for future services again.

Number #1 just knowing that you as a business were on the internet surprised me totally. I am a disabled 74 year old woman that doesn't get out much and when my fan belts broke I didn't know where to turn. Then here comes this big kid driving slowly down my driveway being careful not to hit my little dogs, he gets out of the car and says "Mary Brooks" and I said "Brandon", he then said lets fix your car....What a pleasant gentle young man, described to me what he was going to do after looking at the problem. After fixing the problem he went on to say the things that I should be concerned and how to fix them or to give Your Mechanic a call and have them come out again to possibly fix whatever needed to be done and of course I would ask for him, Brandon. I will use your service and Brandon again. Thank you so very much. Give Brandon Kudos for a job well done. Mary E Brooks

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.
